PRE-ORDER NOW! Items will ship in mid-late September. Convertible between backpack, luggage, and briefcase, the stowable backstraps tuck out of the way for carrying with the sturdy web handles or optional web shoulder strap, yet they’re ready in moment when you need your hands free. Just break out the contoured, padded backstraps and use the bag as a pack. A pair of D-rings are there to add a shoulder strap for even more options. The trio of possibilities creates a veritable “hat trick” of carry options! Plenty of pockets inside and out offer compartments to keep your stuff where it belongs. The large zip pocket on the front sports an organizing panel inside for keeping travel documents, gadgets, and a newspaper or magazine ready in a flash. Inside, a full length padded zip sleeve offers a spot for a laptop. Our XP Snap Grid is compatible with our XP Accessory Bags, providing storage for smaller objects in a pocket sized to your liking. The grid lets you add the optional Accessory Bags in backpack or briefcase orientation. The heavy duty full zipper hugs the back of the pack to allow easy access to the padded sleeve whether in pack or brief mode. The #10 zipper goes three quarters of the way around the bag allowing it to open almost flat so you can easily get to or pack your gear. Waxed canvas construction keeps the weather out, sheds dirt, debris, and stains, and will last for years. We build them and guarantee ‘em, in Duluth, Minnesota. The Voyageur Backpack is carry on compliant for airline travel.
