The Homebase series from Tortuga features this incredibly lightweight sailcloth material that’s water resistant and super strong. (It feels light and scary! But it’s damn strong stuff.) This makes for an incredibly light and resilient travel bag.
The Homebase Backpack is one of my personal favorites because it’s just a simple tech pouch with the right amount of capacity for minimal travel. I only wish it looked better as a daily carry once I got to my destination.
And the Homebase Duffel Case is one of my favorite bags for when you need to bring everything. It’s huge! But it still fits in carry on. Honestly, I’m amazed how comfortable it was to carry this thing while it was completely packed out with the included shoulder strap.
These two are meant to be used together for those #DigitalNomads out there. The duffel case is like one of those old school trunks, like the kind people took on the titanic, or to Deadwood in a horse-drawn buggy.
My personal take: if I were doing a very long trip, I would use the Duffel Case as my “carry all,” the thing I shove everything into. Then I’d take a small daily carry bag (either smooshed inside the Duffel Case or carried with me) to use once I get to my destinations (think working at the cafe, short hikes, boat rides, etc. I don’t like to do that stuff with a big-ass bulky travel bag).
Other Bags to Check Out:
Wandrd makes 2 duffel bags — the Hexad Access (this bag) and the Hexad Carryall. This is the one you want to be looking at for carry on travel.
Tom Bihn makes two Aeronaut bags — the 30L and the 45L. These bags are excellent for any traveller who a). wants a bag that's going to last forever, b). doesn't need a laptop or tech organizer built into their bag, and c). wants to fit so much stuff in a bag!
I love how functional a solid rolltop bag can be, and this is one of my favorite rolltop bags.
A truly lightweight and sturdy bag that can carry literally everything you can throw at it AND make the load as comfortable as possible to carry.
This bag is built like a tank and I think it's one of the best looking bags out there. Simple, minimal, bulletproof aesthetic, excellent materials and build quality, and enough space to carry your sh*t!
