The Setout Backpack is a “just right” carry on backpack for city travelers. It has ample packing space, just enough organization, and a suspension system to keep your bag feeling light on your back, even when you’ve packed it full.

Since its launch in 2017, the Setout Backpack has been a customer favorite. But until now, it’s only been available as a maximum-sized carry on (45L).

In March, you’ll be able to buy a smaller, more compact version ideal for lighter packers and shorter trips. The 35L Setout Backpack has all the features you know and love in the 45L Setout Backpack, just in a smaller size. It has enough packing space for about a week’s worth of stuff.

We cannot guarantee that the heathered grey 45L Setout Backpack will ship with load lifters as there are some versions in our warehouses without them. If you want to be 100% sure you’ll receive a bag with load lifters and want the 45L version, order black or navy.
