Peak Design makes good products
I love Peak Design products. I have a few straps, camera hand strap, 5L Sling and now the Tech Pouch. Great organisational bag for travelling and was hoping to use it with a strap for daily use.

Tortuga Setout Divide Backpack
Best Travel Backpack
I was torn between this and the Osprey Farpoint 40L. After trying both of them out, the Tortuga won. Though the Osprey had a better harness/waist strap system, but for the size of bag, the Tortuga's removable waist straps works just fine. Most times I don't even use the waist straps unless I know I ...

Tortuga Setout Divide Backpack
Hybrid Backpack Recommendations
An example is the Tortuga Setout Divide that ranges 26-34 liters. You pay extra for the feature and it adds weight and bulk to the bag. You are always carrying weight of the larger pack. I would aim for a travel pack 45 liters or less and go with a packable backpack or a messenger bag.
