In this review, we are taking a look at the Monolith Weekender 40L from German tent and backpack specialists, Heimplanet. At 40 liters—and just under carry-on size limitations—this pack looks ideal for one bag travel, which is exactly how we’ve put it to work. In just over a month of testing, this pack has seen use around the southeast of England and on a ten-day trip to Portugal.

We’ve reviewed the Heimplanet Transit Line Travel Pack, and it scored highly, so we were thrilled to get our hands on this one.

At the time of this review, we’ve been testing the Heimplanet Monolith Weekender for one month. During that time it’s seen use on a ten-day trip to Portugal, as well as frequent trips to the coffee house.

The Heimplanet Monolith Weekender 40L is a great addition to the one bag travel market, and another solid product from Heimplanet. Apart from some minor gripes—like the tight laptop compartment and no water bottle pocket—this is a well thought out pack that scores well in practicality, durability, and craftsmanship. If you’re looking for a large, carry-on compliant backpack to throw a load of gear into, the Monolith Weekender is worth a serious look.

That reflective white molle on the front is ugly af. Not sure how you claim this doesn’t scream tourist though. I can’t think of a city in Europe where I’d wear this as a day-to-day pack.

Pack Hacker says:

How important is a water bottle pocket on a backpack to you?

Bo Stark says:

Never heard of this brand before. Pretty cleaver, bigger than what I’m looking for though.
Their transit line looks promising.

František Bína says:

With these bags having completely soft back panel, do you always need to wear laptop in or you will be suffering from random bends pushing in your back?

TheToeKnee216 says:

Great review! It looks like a very well made product. I do like when companies pay attention to things like the G hooks and reverse coil zippers. All of the small things add up!
