Peak Design Travel Backpack 30L

SKU: BTR-30-BK-1
Sale price$449.00
Colour: Black

Rugged, versatile carry-on travel daypack

The smaller sibling of our iconic 45L Travel Backpack, the 30L is a rugged, expandable daypack ideal for shorter travel and everyday carry. A big, beautfiul rear hatch provides total access for easy packing and unpacking. An enlarged top pocket is subdivided with stretch and zip pockets for keys, glasses, passport, etc. The weatherproof #10 UltraZip can withstand decades of use thanks to its proprietary abrasion-resistant thread. Meets international carry-on size requirements in expanded (33L) and compressed (27L) form. Expansive side pockets for water bottles, tripods, and more. Padded laptop + tablet sleeves. Tuck-away shoulder straps and optional hip belt accessory. 360-degree grab handles. Cleverly concealed external carry straps. All packed within a sleek, weatherproof 100% recycled 400D nylon canvas shell with 900D bottom liner. Fair Trade Certified and 100% carbon neutral.

Works seamlessly with Peak Design Packing Cubes and Pouches, sold separately. Organize clothes, shoes, toiletries, cords, adapters. Fits Peak Design Camera Cubes, but only in it's expanded form. For optimal photo gear carry, we recommend the larger 45L Travel Backpack.

Comparing to the 45L? The 30L is better for:

1-bag-travel for trips 3 days and under.
Day bag use: perfect for exploring, commuting, and working, in a new place, or in your hometown.
Your carry-on personal item: fits more easily under airline seats. - International carry-on approved

Functional Differences vs. 45L

Simplified access: main access via single rear zip (45L also has side and front access)
Larger top pocket: subdivided with internal stretch and zip pockets (45L has smaller, undivided pocket)
Single volume: 45L has a removeable internal divider not found on the 30L
Hip belt not included: 45L has a built-in hip belt, 30L has optional hip belt accessory
Less photo-oriented: the 30L only fits PD Camera Cubes when fully expanded. For frequent/heavy camera carry, 45L is recommended
