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.
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.
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.
Other Bags to Check Out:
The Setout from Tortuga is one of our highest recommended travel bags because it has tons of capacity and organization and a very comfortable back panel and straps.
The X25 from RiutBag is an utterly functional travel and daily conversion backpack that also has an important security feature.
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.
Smith the Roll Pack from Millican is a perfect eco-friendly rambler for daily adventures that's built excellently, has plenty of room for your stuff, but still looks good when it's not totally full.
The Topo Travel bag has a playful style, which I like a lot, but it is very serious about being a great travel bag. This is a classic.
