Out on the open road, it’s just you and your bag. Whether you’re out with friends or taking a trip solo, it’s good to know that there’s always someone to have your back. We’d like to be that someone.

There and back again

There’s nothing worse than being halfway around the world when your backpack strap gives out. That’s why we make each bag to make it back home safe when you do. Boating trips, crowded trains, luggage racks, and hostel bedsides: our bags can take even the wild trips that have you starting every story with, “I swear I’m not making this up-”

If your trip gets crazier than even we anticipated, you can also get a bag repaired or replaced. We know it’s hard to let go of a bag that’s been through so much with you, which is why we do our best to repair damage rather than replace bags. Keep the bag that helped you live the stories.

Stand out in a crowd

Looking to pick a bag you can spot from a mile away on the luggage belt? You’ve got the best travel bag selection around. Pick an eye popping shade of red, a beautiful floral print, or a far out galaxy pattern. Even if you’ve got an eye for the simple things, a sturdy black, blue, or checked pattern can’t hide the sleek lines and eye for detail packed into each bag.

The world in one bag

When you’re living out of a bag, you want to make sure that bag can carry everything you need. We’ve got you covered with everything from the largest bag (the Far Out 65) to the smallest, plus some great Crossbody Bags for the littlest stuff. Find what you need for everything from an overnight trip to a round-the-world gap year that takes weeks or months. Clothes, shoes, souvenirs, laptops, food, toiletries: if you need it, you can pack it. Plus, check out our selection of Accessory Pouches for even more sorting and storing.

FAQ about travel bags

How to pack a backpack for travel on a plane?

  1. Check your airline’s size restrictions and make sure your bag will fit within the personal item or carry-on bag size limits. The average-sized school backpack will likely work as a personal item, while a bigger bag or duffel makes an excellent carry-on. Make sure any pins or patches are well secured and won’t fall off in transit.
  2. Compress everything you can to make sure your bag will fit within size restrictions. To save space, roll clothes nest items, like stuffing your shoes with rolled up socks.
  3. Pack electronics and chargers in easily-accessible pockets and make sure your toiletries are equally grabbable for going through security. Bonus tip: bring an empty water bottle through to fill on the other side of security!

What size backpack is best for traveling?

Depending on how you travel, your mileage may vary. If you need to fit a bag into airline personal item restrictions, make sure to check the size guidelines for your airline. If you’re going to be gone long-term, you may want to think bigger. One of our Far Out bags is great for getting off the beaten path, whether it’s a backpacking trip through the mountains or taking the train from city to city.

The biggest thing to keep in mind is that you only want to pack the essentials, and you want a bag that reflects that. Bulkier is often not better when it comes to travel, as it can cost extra or get in your way. Pack minimalist!
