Getaway Backpack

Click on image to expand


"I...am the proud owner of a very old, over-utilized Tough Traveler back pack. After 30 years the fabric, every single seam, and all the zippers are intact. The backpack has been through a lot of wear and tear, yet it functions like a brand new pack. I am amazed at the durability of the product. I have replaced my son's department store back pack 4 times since he entered elementary school 6 years ago. I'm done with cheapies that are practically disposable. He's getting a Tough Traveler." -- Diana Straut Voorheesville NY

When a year passed and the bag still looked new I purchased another, and a few months later I completed the triumverate... the bags not only went to school but on sleepovers, vacations and to places I can't even imagine....Now 13 years...later, and I couldn't pry those book bags from their owners' hands if I tried...."

"I received my Super Padre size Small yesterday, and after trying on over 50 packs at several store, THIS ONE fits!!! I can't believe it; I expected to say yet another 'Oh well...'. I carried some weight around in it today, and didn't even want to take it off! And when I did it was with great fondness that I set it down. I haven't worn a pack for 30 years.... I am so pleased to once again be able to use one..... I love it and thank you so much for your concern for the health of those of us who wear these things!!!" Kathleen DeCelle

Made in USA backpack







"I just bought one of your Odyssey backpacks to add to my Tough Traveler collection, which I took on its first day hike today at Blakely State park in southern Alabama.... When I lifted the bag up to put it on I was worried with how heavy I had loaded it. Once I got it on, it suddenly seemed lighter for some reason. I had my girlfriend try on the fully loaded pack and she noticed the same thing. Something about the way it sits against the small of my back must make the pack feel lighter. We hiked 4 miles to our lunch site and the pack was very comfortable and balanced feeling the entire way. Thank you so much for such a wonderful pack as well as all of my other bags. I'm so glad that your bags are still made in the USA and such good quality....

Namaste--"
