About us

Checking luggage is a nightmare.

You pay $50 in baggage fees and still risk having your luggage lost, delayed, or damaged. Even if your luggage arrives unharmed, you’ll still be weighed down by too much stuff. You shouldn’t be paying money just to have more bags to drag around.

Like you, we were frustrated by our luggage.

On a backpacking trip to Eastern Europe in 2009, we (Fred and Jeremy) learned how hard it is to travel with the wrong gear. The shoulder strap ripped off of Jeremy’s bag on the first day. Fred had to check his giant backpack. The bag arrived on time but was a disorganized mess.

The trip was a blast, but our luggage was a disaster. Despite weeks of pre-trip research, we couldn’t find the perfect travel backpack. So we made it.

Expert travelers don’t check bags. They save on baggage fees and spend that money enjoying their trip. They travel light and breeze through the airport while everyone else is awaiting their fate at the baggage carousel.

Tortuga helps travelers avoid the cost and hassle of checking luggage with carry-on-sized travel backpacks.

Since 2010, we’ve been helping travelers like you pack less while saving time and money. Packing isn’t the fun part of traveling. We’ll take care of it so you can focus on having a great trip.
