Is it a suitcase or is it a backpack? Well, it’s sort of both. The Allpa Travel Pack from Cotopaxi opens up like a suitcase, but its padded, tuck-away shoulder straps and removable waist belt give it the carrying comfort of a hiking backpack. Available in three sizes – 28L, 35L and 42L – the Allpa is carry-on compatible and stacked with useful features for international adventures. It’s got a range of zippered and sub-divided pockets, including a padded one for electronics and a handy top pocket for your keys and passport. And if you do choose to check it in as hold luggage, the bombproof TPU-coated 1000D polyester with 840D ballistic nylon panelling should help your gear survive being used for impromptu hammer throw competitions by airport baggage handlers

Cotopaxi’s tagline is ‘gear for good’, and before you roll your eyes at yet another outdoor brand making lofty claims about their eco credentials, these guys really do walk the walk. They’re certified climate neutral, with rigorous ethical manufacturing standards and even a grants scheme that supports organisations fighting global poverty.
They also prioritise the use of recycled and reclaimed materials, which includes some imaginative upcycling – like their ‘Del Día’ range made from repurposed fabrics. Other product lines make use of leftover fabrics discarded by other manufacturers. As well as reducing landfill waste, this also means that the vibrant patchwork-style colourways of many Cotopaxi garments and packs are totally unique.
And that’s the thing about Cotopaxi. Their kit doesn’t just tick the good-guy boxes, it also looks great too – with a retro-inspired aesthetic that channels the best bits of the 80s. Whether it’s a daypack, a bum bag, a windbreaker or a zip-up fleece, their range is built to last and stacked with well-thought-out features for conscientious adventure travellers.
Awesome bag for weekend trips as well as weeklong trips. Lightweight, easy to lift
