Tortuga Setout vs Peak Design Travel Review, Please…
February 12, 2019
I am in the market for a new travel bag. Currently, I am using the Minaal (original version). The Minaal has served me really well in the past years. My wife likes it, and she is claiming it as hers. Also, the Minaal is a bit too small for me now and I am looking for a new slightly bigger bag. That’s why Tortuga Setout and Peak Design Travel are the two bags I am considering.
I was about to purchase Tortuga Setout lest year, but it was out of stock. Then the Peak Design came out. And it looks really good too. I have watched and read the reviews online. They are both looking fantastic. The Setout seems a bit more minimalist. Kind of like a suitcase on your back with the softer sidewall. While Peak Design seems a bit more structured. I would buy packing cubes that are designed especially for any of them.
I usually carry a five-day worth of cloth, a MacBook Pro 15, an Ipad Pro 9.7, a book, a sketchbook, a Leica M with three lens, chargers, a power bank, a small watercolor kit, pens, travel item such as passport, wallet and so on. I do not carry a lot of toiletries since I mostly stay in hotels or Airbnb.
Does anyone have a chance to review both of these bags? Or have any opinion on them?
