Our Top 3 Favorite Travel Bags

After traveling all over the world for over 20 years, we’ve come to realize the importance of a good bag. Sometimes it is make or break on whether not you have a good travel experience. Lots of people always ask what bags we recommend so we’ve searched far and wide for brands we love to share with you. Each brand we recommend has a focus on sustainability and improving the Earth because that’s one of our core values. We also choose bags based on durability and guarantee. After lots of trial and error, here are our top 3 favorite travel bags.


A company who believes the products that get us exploring can make a positive impact in other people’s lives. We’ve partnered with them because they create sustainably designed outdoor gear that fuels both adventure and global change, by dedicating a percentage of their revenues to nonprofits working to improve the human condition. They make durable gear in the most ethically sustainable way possible and to use their revenue to develop and uplift communities. 

We particularly like the 42L Alpaca Travel pack. Perfect for a quick trip, carry-on compatible, and an intuitive design made to help you pack more in a smaller bag.

Tortuga Bags

We have tried a few and love them all but particularly like the 35L Outbreaker Backpack for it’s ability to fit on ANY international flight, even those small airlines that are trying to nickel and dime you! Tortuga’s mission is to make travel easier. When you buy a Tortuga backpack, you help young people travel abroad, often for the first time. Your purchase supports youth travel by funding the Tortuga Study Abroad Scholarship and gap year grants in partnership with the Gap Year Association.


We love brands who love the Earth. Their premium, sustainable gear is made entirely of ocean-bound plastics. Rated as some of the best backpacks and travel bags of 2021. Durable, cutting edge, and stylish backpacks, carry-ons, and more. Use code LEGITTRIPS for 10% off! 24 month warranty on all bags. 10 years on suitcases.

We have the Endeavor with closet backpack and can’t BELIEVE how much stuff fits in there. It’s super handy to pack into the shelving unit and then instantly have shelves when you land.
