Fortitude 40 Backpack

Product Information

Description

Meet the Fortitude 40, our rugged yet beautifully built adventure backpack. Made from tough, durable and water resistant 1680D oxford, it's packed with features, it looks great, and it's extremely comfortable to carry!

It has nearly 40 litres of capacity and features a large main compartment, with lockable zips. The main compartment can be folded open to get good access for packing clothes and belongings tidily.

Inside the main compartment is a laptop sleeve pocket that can accommodate most 17" laptops. In front there are 3 additional pockets. At the top a fleece lined pocket with horizontal zip, perfect for keeping mobile phones or sunglasses safe. Below that the pack has a large organiser pocket, again with lockable zips, and compartments galore to keep pens, phones, documents, tablet or a smaller laptop secure and protected. In front of this there is a further document pocket with horizontal zip. To the side there is an elasticated water bottle holder with plenty of room for a 10cm diameter water bottle.

Beyond the array of storage options, the fortitude travel bag has many other useful features. At the front there are 2 rows of MOLLE / PALS compatible webbing (2 * 8 grid), with a D-ring just above. There are 4 compression straps on the sides, which can also be used for attaching kit, such as roll matts or rod tubes. To the front there is another compression strap which again doubles up as an attachment point, perfect for strapping a jacket to when on the move. There are 2 grab handles, one to the side and one on top of the backpack. Additionally there are 2 more D-rings and a removable carry strap, allowing the bag to be carried as a shoulder bag / duffel. 

To the rear the Fortitude adventure bag has padded and adjustable shoulder straps, each with 2 D-rings for connectivity, and an adjustable sternum strap. The back panel is padded with an air flow region between the shoulder blades, which will help to keep you cool when on the move. The adjustable waist support strap includes another 2 pockets for easy access to small items such as money or payment cards. Towards the base there are 2 webbing points which can be used in conjunction with the front D-ring or MOLLE grid to attach heavier items (such as a tent) to the bottom of the bag, using strapping (not included).

The shoulder straps, sternum strap and waist straps can be tucked away when you are stowing your Fortitude bag, or want to use it as a shoulder bag / duffel. There is a rollaway system that allows the backpack part of the bag to be covered and zipped up, ideal for keeping it from getting caught up when putting in overhead storage on an airplane.

    Outstanding quality

    Excellent quality heavy duty backpack. Its very comfortable to wear as a rucksack but the design also allows for the straps to be covered and zipped out of the way. Plenty of pockets, the attachment parts are very solid and it's big enough for use as a travel bag with 2 or 3 days of clothing. Definitely recommend.

    Product FAQs

    We aim to dispatch orders on the same or next working day. Free delivery takes 2-4 working days. Express delivery takes 1-3 working days.

    The Fortitude is water resistant. Whilst the main backpack is made from a highly water resistant tight weave oxford, the zips are less so and may let in moisture in extremely wet conditions.

    External measurements when loaded are approximately 55cm x 34cm x 20cm. Internally there is nearly 40L of capacity.

    It depends on the airline and you should check the size restrictions with your airline before you fly. As a general guide the backpack is suitable for premium/overhead allowances, but too big to fit under the seat.
