The Stor backpack from Trakke is a lovely 30L pack for travel and gear moving.
- 30L capacity — perfect carry on size, easily enough space for a long weekend (or for forever, if you can pack minimally!).
- Killer waxed canvas material — British made, feels so dense and nice to the touch, will last for a long time.
- Water resistant — all zips and materials are reinforced against water.
- Simple and honest — it’s ultimately a very simple, honest bag that’s useful for travel, gear carry, and loads of other applications.

Other Bags to Check Out:
An extremely versatile and feature rich bag that doesn't look half bad, the Errant has lots of organization in an innovative pack for everyday use. One of my favorites.
The Duffelpack from Peak Design expands from 45L to 65L (a little too large for carry-on on most airlines), has backpack straps that hide away, is made of weatherproof material and is a durable and organized companion for LOTS of different kinds of adventures.
The Hexad Access Duffel from Wandrd is a highly organized bag with multiple large compartments that's great for anyone traveling with a serious camera setup.
The Travel Bag from Peak Designs is an extremely well designed, quality bag for modern carry-on adventure and business travel.
The Outbreaker backpack from Tortuga is a solid 1-bag travel pick. I personally prefer the less bulky (and more spacious) experience of traveling with the Tortuga Setout, so be sure to check out that bag too. This Outbreaker, however, has quite a bit more padding and protection around the entire bag, so if you know you'll have delicate stuff inside you may prefer this one.
