Timbuk2 Aviator Travel Backpack

Timbuk2 has a brand new bag that is ready to go with you on your next adventure. The Timbuk2 Aviator Travel Backpack is a soft sided bag and backpack in one. Carry it like a suitcase, or wear it like a backpack — the choice is yours. And because the Aviator Travel Backpack comes from Timbuk2, you know it works well when serving either purpose!

The bag/pack weighs just 4.4 pounds empty, and it offers a whopping 28.5L capacity. The Timbuk2 Aviator Travel Backpack features a laptop pocket that fits up to a 17” MacBook Pro and quickly and easily converts from a suitcase to a backpack. Padded stowaway straps and a removable hip belt make this pack as flexible as they come. And how’s this for marketing? According to Timbuk2 the bag, “…even has a place to quarantine the stinky stuff when your trip is coming to a close”.

    I really like the suitcase/backpack functionality, however I wish they had included more padding on the suitcase like handles. This would be ideal for Dad. I think this is just what he has been looking for.
