Backpack - Hybrid for Overseas Travel with Detachable Daypack

Many travelers find these packs ideal for overseas travel since they have a good volume main compartment for gear that would otherwise be in a piece of clunky luggage or unwieldy duffel bag. And, they have a removable daypack that can either be left at home, or is fully integrated as part of the overall packing system when attached. This is a great option if a backpack is going to be your primary piece of luggage for an extended trip, but you want something smaller for day hikes or quick jaunts while you explore a new city from your base at a hostel - just detach from the base pack and take off for nimble, lightweight travels.

We have a couple different models as part of this series, both from Deuter. The Quantum models hold 70-80 liters in the base pack, plus another 18 or so in the attachable day pack. The Transit series have 50 or 70 liters in their base compartment, plus the daypack. All models have a highly adjustable torso length, so it's pretty much one size fits most. The shoulder harness disappears behind a zipped flap in the Transit. See the Deuter web site for more info on these different models.

We have a very limited number of these packs, so if you want one, order well in advance of your trip. You can specify your preference below. While we will accommodate your request if available, we'll send the next best thing if you're first request is already committed. If that won't work for you, just add something to the effect of "X model or nothing" in the Comments Box you'll see as you checkout, in which case we'll let you know if we can't fulfill it. For other uses, and a little less money, we suggest renting a medium-capacity pack for most typical backpacking trips. If you can take lightweight gear that packs down well, and want to shave weight from your back, we also rent a few ultralight backpacks.

Learn more about backpacks, including the pros and cons of externals vs internals; info on fitting; how to load up with your gear and how to select the best pack for you. We also have a series of videos about backpacks. Or just give us a call at 480-348-8917 to ask any questions about the best backpack for your needs.

Note - this item has a high volume-to-weight ratio - that is, it may be light, but it eats up a lot of box space. Shipments including this item often require a bigger box and is subject to a rate surcharge by UPS, so the effective shipping weight calculated at checkout is higher than the actual weight. See the actual product weight above.
