BACKPACKS: Tough Traveler's backpacks are well-known for their superior durability, excellent workmanship and materials, designed in convenient sizes, shapes, and colors, so you can pick a backpack for your adventure, travel, or everyday use. Plus, they're 100% Made-in-USA! If you're tired of buying a new backpack every year, you need to try a Tough Traveler®.

"...Back when I started middle school in...1979, my parents bought me a blue Tough Traveler backpack that I still use to this day. The backpack has survived middle school, high school, college (including a semester abroad in Italy)....jobs in England and Portugal, a trip to Morocco, graduate school in Albany, my Peace Corps experience in Micronesia, and a honeymoon. The backpack is still going strong today. I use it every day ....The backpack has endured rugged trips through 4 continents, and has held up under heat, rain, snow, leaky containers, washers and dryers and all sorts of general abuse for 23 years! And I see no reason why it shouldn't last as long as I need it." -- Gardner Smith
Do you want an added water bottle pocket or a cell pocket on your pack? We are a factory, and generally can put one - or both - on! The charge for each is $15. Let us know at service@toughtraveler.com or note when placing your order.

Want some reflective tape to put on your or your child's backpack padded straps? Check out our Front Reflectors.

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--"

"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

    "The [Kite] bag was fantastic.  I carried it everywhere I went holding my camera, maps, gloves, umbrellas and even fleece jackets.... If it was really "full" I would unzip the main strap and wore it like a backpack.  When not filled to capacity I would snap it down to a small satchel and would wear it over one shoulder which was comfortable and convenient (especially in crowded areas).  I thought you might like to hear how useful and handy it was."

    Getaway Backpack

    "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

    "I bought my knapsack from you, and I've been very pleased with it. I've had it about a year and am delighted at how well it's holding up.... Where your product really distinguishes itself is in the robustness of the zippers, the strength of the fabric dividing one compartment from another, and the strength of the seams at the top of the shoulder straps. This is where my imported ones would fall apart. Yours is as good as new.... Thanks for a great product." -- Jim Reilly
