Some of our travels are international and others keep us local. Fortunately, these four Patagonia travel bags can be used for your next adventure, no matter how big or small!
Patagonia Travel Bags for your Next Adventure
Quick disclaimer: None of these are “backpacks”, although some have “pack capability.” If you’re looking for a hiking backpack, please explore my reviews on packs from Osprey, REI, Marmot, Gregory, and others. If you’re looking for more information on a specific pack, shoot me a message!
Without further adieu, check out these unique travel bags from Patagonia:
Dimensions: 15.5″ x 10.25″ x 8″
Weight: 13.1 ounces
Patagonia’s Lightweight Travel Tote is a great bag for everyday adventure. Whether you’re headed to the farmer’s market or sightseeing around town, this bag carries your essentials. With a 27-liter capacity, the Tote is built with 70-denier nylon ripstop fabric with a silicone face coating and a polyurethane (PU) back coating.
It has five storage pockets, including the main compartment, and top handles for easy carrying. But it also boasts backpack straps for comfortable, hands-free transport. The tote fits most airline carry-on requirements, so it’s a great companion to a larger pack on longer trips.
The pack’s top access helps you find what you need quickly and efficiently, and side compression straps secure loads of any size. Finally, the tote packs into its own pocket. It folds into itself, becoming small enough to fit into your pocket.
The Patagonia Lightweight Travel Tote is a great companion travel pack or a useful everyday carry option.
The Patagonia Great Divider Travel Bag
Dimensions: 18″ x 9.5″ x 13″
Weight: 5 lbs., 1.1 oz.
Here’s one option for the anglers out there. The Great Divider is a fishing travel bag that keeps all your tackle and supplies in a water-resistant container. The 26-liter volume provides plenty of space and the internal organization is customizable to your needs.
The lid offers a place to stash your flies and the magnetic front closure reduces the changes of spills when your boat is rocking. You’ll also enjoy a clear internal lid pocket for items you need secure. That clear pocket eliminates dangerously sticking your hand into a dark pocket to “fish” for supplies.
Like most Patagonia travel bags, it’s constructed with 100% recycled materials, including the nylon fabric, webbing, lining, and polyester shoulder strap.
The Patagonia Travel MLC 45L
The MLC is a combination briefcase, backpack, and carry-on travel bag. The 45-liter capacity is enough for multi-day trips while maintaining a small size for carry-on capability. It also seamlessly integrates with the Black Hole Wheeled Duffels (more on that next!).
Other features of the MLC include zippered internal pockets to keep clothing and toiletries organized and an exterior zippered pocket for small electronics. It’s made with 100% recycled body fabric, lining, and webbing too!
The Patagonia Black Hole Wheeled Travel Duffel
Ok, let’s prepare for a little bigger journey. The Tote and MLC bags are great for everyday carry or as a companion to a larger travel bag. But what does that larger bag look like? Enter the Patagonia Black Hole Wheeled Duffel.
The Wheeled Duffel is available in 40, 70, and 100-liter capacities, but all sizes offer wheels for easy transportation through airports or from the cab into your accommodations. These Black Hole Duffels offer base weights of 7 pounds, 7.8 pounds, and 9.3 pounds, respectively. In terms of travel bags, they are heavier than some, which is why they come with wheels.
Regardless of size and weight, they’re manufactured with recycled polyester ripstop fabric coated with a weather-resistant TPU-film laminate and a durable water repellent finish.
They boast a large, open main compartment and several mesh pockets for smaller items. They also feature an external zippered pocket for easy access to the items you want to keep secure but readily accessible while traveling.
The smallest version of the Patagonia Black Hole Wheeled Duffel meets most carry-on restrictions, but the larger two must be checked underneath the plane.
Benefits of Buying Patagonia Travel Bags
Patagonia is one of the most environmentally conscious outdoor gear providers in the industry. The company’s mission to “build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis” guides everything they do.
The company recently made headlines by announcing the launch of “Patagonia Action Works,” which is an effort to help Patagonia customers learn more about environmental issues in their areas and how they can get involved with events, petitions, fundraisers, and volunteer efforts.
Their site provides information on the exact supply chain used to manufacture each product and you can visit their Environmental and Social Responsibility page to learn more about their ongoing initiatives to protect our planet.
When you buy from Patagonia, you’re getting a high-quality product and supporting a company that truly cares about minimizing our environmental impact and contributing to a healthier society!
