What is the difference between the original Daypack (V2) and the Outbreaker Daypack?
What hasn't changed
The Outbreaker Daypack is a new solution to the same problem. It is more comfortable and durable than an ultralight bag, but easier to pack away than a traditional backpack. The daypack can be used for a day of sightseeing, and then packed away into your carry on when not in use. It won’t take up space in your luggage like a traditional backpack.
Like all our products, the Outbreaker Daypack uses Duraflex buckles and YKK zippers -- both widely considered the best on the market.
We’ve continued to value comfort and functionality… but we’ve made a few upgrades.
The best materials on the market
For maximum durability, the Outbreaker Daypack is built from X-Pac waterproof sailcloth that is resistant to scuffs and tears. Using X-Pac in this design provides more structure compared to the original daypack so you can stand it on a flat surface to have better access to your things. Unlike the traditional DWR (Durable Water Resistant) coating used in the original Tortuga daypack, X-Pac's water resistance won’t wear off over time.
The original daypack had standard -- though durable -- zippers. The new Outbreaker Daypack is fitted with water-resistant YKK Aquaguard coil zippers that will give you more protection in a sudden downpour.
The Outbreaker Daypack's back panel and shoulder straps are made of the same sweat-wicking Ariaprene foam as the Outbreaker Travel Backpack. This provides a lighter padding that won’t chafe your skin or stink when it gets hot.
Upgrade in organization
The Outbreaker Daypack's pocket for small items like sunglasses and pens is on the front of the bag instead of at the top so you have easy access to your laptop and other things in the main compartment.
The Outbreaker Daypack also features an additional internal pocket that is the perfect size for a tablet or e-reader so it won’t get knocked around.
