What is the difference between the original Daypack (V2) and the Outbreaker daypack?
The Outbreaker daypack was designed to fit seamlessly with the Outbreaker collection and it fits perfectly in the Outbreaker travel backpack. Like the Outbreaker backpack, we’ve upgraded everything that goes into the bag from the materials, to the design, to the factory that we work with on production. We also added Patrick, our first in-house designer, to the team to level up our product design.
What isn’t changing
The Outbreaker daypack was designed as 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 larger bag when not in use. It won’t take up space in your luggage like a traditional backpack.
In the new Outbreaker daypack, we’ve continued to use 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-Ply waterproof sailcloth
that is resistant to scuffs and tears. Unlike the traditional DWR (Durable Water Resistant) coating used in the original Tortuga daypack, X-Ply's water resistance won’t wear off over time. Using X-Ply 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.
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 daypack’s back panel and shoulder straps are made of the same sweat-wicking
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
We moved the small pocket from the top to the front of the bag, so it no longer interferes with your access to your laptop and other things in the main compartment.
We’ve added an additional internal pocket that is the perfect size for a tablet or e-reader so it won’t get knocked around.
