The Pillowpak - A Super Lightweight 55L Minimalist Travel Backpack

The Pillowpak - A Super Lightweight 55L Minimalist Travel Backpack

October 25, 2021

What are the key features of any minimalist travel backpack? Well, we believe they’re the following:

  • It should be ultra-lightweight
  • It should fit as carry-on luggage
  • It should have separate purposefully-designed compartments for all your gear
  • It should be durable and machine-washable
  • It should have a split main compartment accessible from both the side and top

You can call this our minimalist travel bag manifesto, and this has been our guiding principle when designing the Pillowpak, our super lightweight 55L minimalist travel backpack. Here are the features in detail.

Four External Compartments

  • Two easy-access large quart-sized pockets for toiletries or other larger items.
  • One soft-lined pocket for protecting your tech accessories plus one additional keepsake pocket. 
  • Large mesh pocket for carrying a water bottle or umbrella.
  • Gear loops for attaching other items.

Separate Internal Compartments

  • Carry your tech safely with an internal padded laptop sleeve that fits devices up to 15.6" in size.
  • A separate internal compartment for clothes, shoes, and other items.  

Side-Opening Rear Compartment

  • Large side-opening rear compartment designed to fit a pillow, that has enough space to pack a minimalist travel capsule wardrobe.
  • Great for security, as it can’t be opened when you’re wearing the bag as a backpack.

Lightweight & Small Size - Large Capacity

  • Weighs in around 1.5 pounds and small enough to qualify as carry-on luggage with most airlines.
  • Maximum capacity of 55L, which can be reduced with the rolltop fastening feature.

Durable & Weather-proof Material 

  • Made from durable mesh polyester which minimizes the likelihood of damage and means the bag will last.
  • The wind and water-resistant outer mesh will withstand the elements. 

Foldable & Machine Washable

  • You can fold or roll the bag when not in use - making it one of the largest backpacks on the market that can be stowed away.
  • Machine-washable, so you can easily clean and sanitize between journeys.
