All year travel

The 55L Overland is specifically designed for experienced travellers who pack light and travel hard off the beaten track. It’s constructed of durable, tough gridTECH fabric and opens like a suitcase for easy-access to gear, with an overlapping lockable lid to make it completely secure and weather-protected. The Overland also features an RS2 harness: one-size-fits-all and easily adjustable.

The one-size-fits-all RS2 harness has a 10cm adjustment range and is easily adjustable. The padded and stiffened hip-belt and shaped alloy frame-stays transfer the load where it needs to be, while the padded EVA shoulder straps, adjustable sternum straps and padded back panel make those long waits for trains or the trek up to Machu Picchu more comfortable.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tough fabric I’ve been travelling for about 9 months with this pack (women’s). To be honest I’m a bit disappointed with it. It just never sits right and tends to pull on my shoulders. I have re adjusted this bag to every possible configuration to try and get it to sit on my hips but it never really does. I have also tried to pack it in different ways for weight distribution. I don’t usually right reviews, especially ones that are not favourable to a product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag for backpacking Currently using this on a 3 month trip around South America. I bought it as a hybrid that I could multi day hike with, although I’m not 100% convinced it would be the best hiking bag. It has a great capacity for those who want to travel light-ish - I’ve packed for climates from deep winter in Patagonia to summer in The Galapagos, and for activities like hiking and city exploring. Takes my sleeping bag, decent size towel, clothes for all of the above and a couple of pairs of lightweight walking shoes and sandals (with a bit of room to spare, although I wear my hiking shoes in transit). Took a few goes to get the fit right but feels pretty comfy when on properly. My biggest annoyance with the bag is - strangely enough - the all round zip. Whilst it makes finding stuff super easy, it has short sides when unzipped, so every thing tends to fall out when you unzip the whole way around. You’re best off using it with packing cells so that it’s easy to put it all back in, or so you can pack strategically enough to only have to unzip the top if you need something quickly/are only staying in a place for one night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, durable and light Just purchased for a backpacking trip around southeast asia. Perfect and not too hard on the back, great how it ooens right up so you can get to the guts of your belongings unlike the cheaper top loader styles. So happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag, sure isn't weather proof though. Great pack, comfortable, plenty of space. Love the opening design, lock feature and smaller compartments. Took this across Kokoda - still needs a rain cover though, don't rely on the "weather protection" from the fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Goto Travel Pack I have had my Overland 55 for nearly two years and it has never let me down...the quick transition from pack to bag and back again is one if it's greatest benefits...easy to checkin and extremely comfortable when packing through the streets of Europe or the trails of Nepal...When combined with my Plus One, it's the perfect travel setup for me...As all my extended trips (35+ days) are to the Northern Hemisphere winters I need a travel pack that also copes with wet weather and this pack does.
