TL;DR The Setout Packable Daypack and Packing Cubes are now available for purchase. — We’re excited to announce two new accessories that we hope will make your travels easier and more enjoyable: a packable daypack for a day of sightseeing and packing cubes that fit perfectly in the Setout Backpack.
The Packable Daypack
First, a bit of Tortuga history. In 2017, we launched the Outbreaker Daypack: a highly weather resistant daypack that packs flat and safely carries a computer. We knew that making a travel daypack strong enough to carry a computer would come with packability as a tradeoff. Our plan was to address this with a future daypack that would be more packable but wouldn’t carry a computer. Today, that “future daypack” is here: the Setout Packable Daypack. It’s designed to be the ideal blend of packability and comfort. At only 8.5 oz (0.53 lbs), it’s our lightest daypack yet. It’s perfectly sized to carry a day’s worth of sightseeing essentials and packs into its own front pocket for one bag travel.

The Packing Cubes
Some brands treat packing cubes like a commodity. Their versions use low quality fabrics and — even worse — low-quality zippers that are frustrating to use. The Setout Packing Cubes use the same fabric as the Setout Backpack — a heathered grey 900D polyester — and ultra-durable YKK zippers. They’re topped with a mesh panel so you can see what you packed. The unique curved shape means that the Setout Packing Cubes fit perfectly in the Setout Backpack.
