Tortuga Setout Laptop Backpack Solid Materials. Clean looks.

Solid Materials. Clean looks.

Great feeling materials — 900D heathered polyester, ripstop liner, YKK zippers, decent mesh, padded handles.


Tortuga Setout Laptop Backpack Very comfortable, robust shoulder straps.

Very comfortable, robust shoulder straps.

Extremely comfortable straps + back panel — very strange looking but comfortable straps. Back panel has thick padding, lots of channels for air to move.

It doesn’t have quite the sexy, urban, hip aesthetic some may desire.


Tortuga Setout Laptop Backpack Solid organization panel.

Solid organization panel.

Great organization setup for travel + daily carry — laptop section, main compartment, tech section, quick access pocket. The internal org inside both the laptop section and the tech section are both great. And the tech section has some 3D space built in for shoving larger items in.


Tortuga Setout Laptop Backpack 25L capacity.

25L capacity.

Great capacity for skilled minimal travelers — 25L, 2.8 lbs.
