4 lbs, the Tortuga Setout is also quite light for a durable globe-trotting carry on. Tortuga only makes one bag travel and commuter bags, so they can concentrate all of their energy on making them world-class. The design and build of the Setout shows how proficient they have become in this pursuit since 2010. From the 3 main storage compartments for laptops, clothing, and small items, to the sleek and minimalistic design, there is little to complain about in the Setout

Laptop Size: 15” Tortuga has been around since 2010 after their founders had a terrible experience traveling in Europe with standard backpacking backpacks meant for camping and mountaineering. They couldn’t find the perfect travel bag, so they made one. Since then Tortuga has created a small but mighty line of great travel and commuter bags.

I wore the pack a fair bit, as I had multiple ferries to get off and on, with long terminal walks, as well as four flights. Others with roll bags were envious. 3. I used three packing cubes from Shacke Pac, plus an Eagle Creek garment folder for shirts, two pairs of trousers, and two cocktail dresses--all fitted perfectly--and I over packed
