Pakt One Travel Bag Review

The Pakt One travel bag is a stylish and extremely well thought through over-the-shoulder bag for conscientious travelers.

  • Dignified, stylish look — a bag for big boys and girls.
  • Great materials — this bag feels great to touch and use.
  • Decent organization — multiple sections to the main clothing compartment, lots of pockets on the bag. However, I wish there were a little more dimension built into the external pockets because they can be challenging to get in and out of when the bag is fully packed.
  • Only over-the-shoulder carry — I definitely prefer a hands-free backpack style when I travel.

Material Choice:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Listen, to some people this material is just going to feel like the best combination of honest materials.

Build Quality:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

The materials and how they've designed binding those materials together is really lovely on this bag. And durable as a mthrfkr.

Water Resistance:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

The black nylon version has water sealed zips.

External Access:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Really solid external access. Especially for a duffel. If the two front pockets had a little more dimension I'd bump the score up on this one.

Internal Organization:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

I think the clamshell / two-sides each with a zipper on top format is just really lovely in travel. Security pockets inside the bag as well.

Carry Comfort:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Doesn't Look Weird:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

The aesthetic of this thing is one of my favorite in the whole world of bags, let alone duffels.
