-5 % Travel Backpack 30L | Peak Design BTR-30-BK-1

Peak Design Travel Backpack 30L

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, beautiful 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. Fits Peak Design Camera Cubes, but only in its expanded form. For optimal photo gear carry, we recommend the larger 45L Travel Backpack.

On-The-Go Perfection

Like our award-winning 4

5L Travel Backpack, the 30L is designed to bring you sanity amidst the strenuous pace of travel. But its smaller form makes the 30L perfect for everyday use as well.
