Strap

Tortuga Setout

(1/4)

The shoulder straps are made of a rigid foam that’ll get more comfortable with wear as they mold to your specific body.

Day pack is great overall. Would only fix the straps that appear to be slightly uneven on the hearnest

Compartment

Tortuga Setout

(1/3)

A water bottle pocket. We’re huge fans of water—everyone should be!—so we’re glad that the Setout has a nice place to put a water bottle or thermos. The elastic on the top can make it challenging to squeeze bigger water bottles inside the pocket, but it holds them securely, which we think is a good trade-off.

So I really love when, when bag makers really keep that in mind, it's so important to be able to put the bag down without having the laptop strike the ground. So really like how that's elevated, I really like how wide the pocket is, as I mentioned with the tablet compartment - it's not very rigid, so it doesn't actually have a lot of padding here on the front and it doesn't have any sort of microfiber lining to help Prevent against scratching so you know, the majority of the protection on the laptop compartment comes from the fact that the compartment is elevated and also from the protection provided by the back paneling. So because, as we mentioned, when we were going over the back panel, it's very rigid that that protection extends to the laptop. So you know the backside of a laptop compartment

Laptop

Tortuga Setout

(1/2)

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. The Tortuga Setout is an award-winning pack in their travel backpacks collection

The laptop compartment is well designed, very simple but it keeps the computer from banging the ground. I lost one to that previously in my other bag. I padded the bottom of that compartment with a small towel, but it is not really needed.

Carry-on

Tortuga Setout

(1/12)

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

This professional backpack is the perfect to fit in your big pack as it folds perfectly flat yet you get the quality of a premium back back when you get here you are going.

Size

Tortuga Setout

(1/3)

The company markets the Tortuga Setout as a full-sized carry-on backpack. I’d say that at 45 liters, carry-on specifications are pushed to their limit, but the Tortuga Setout passes as a carry-on because it is not overly tall. (In fact, my 38-liter Gregory backpack is taller than the Tortuga Setout.)The squarish shape of the backpack makes it acceptable as a carry-on

Tortuga Outbreaker Daypack

(1/1)

It worked perfectly for that you, so you can definitely fit a you know, a stuffed cube or a packing cube in here uh, if you're not bringing a whole bunch of tech stuff with you. So because of that, i love how big this main compartment is. You can just kind of like stick a whole bunch of things in there and you're good to go uh, but the backpack in itself isn't so big that it's a problem for daily carry. I really think that this 21 liter size is perfect, because maybe you don't need that all the time you know, if i'm only bringing my laptop and a few small tech things with me uh, i don't really need a huge backpack, but it is nice that there Is this available space there for you in case, i don't know you want to take your jacket off and stuff it in there or like today

Hiking

Tortuga Setout

(1/3)

Purchased the 45L Setout Backpack for my South West hiking trip. Was the perfect size for all my gear for my 6 day trip. Ample pockets, sturdy, and comfortable straps. Was able to move through airport crowds at ease and remove my laptop and electronics easily at TSA check in

Commute

Tortuga Setout

(1/1)

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

Tortuga Outbreaker Daypack

(1/3)

Side pockets great for water and umbrella. The whole pack is compact and fits on your lap or by your feet on busy city commutes. Small front pocket ok but I do miss the small concealed pocket near top on last model. Comfort 10/10 and can get away with taking it to work meetings and not looking like you’re about to go for a hike!
