Perhaps better known for their bike and roof racks, Thule has been in the bag market for quite some time now and their range is one of the most expansive we’ve seen. From crossover duffel bags and hydration packs to camera bags and, of course, travel backpacks—Thule has you covered. Or do they? Can a company that started off making roof racks transition to making great travel backpacks? We decided to investigate.

We’ll be testing the Thule Subterra Travel Backpack 34L from their Subterra range—described by Thule as “Stylish, versatile and built to last, the Thule Subterra collection offers luggage, backpacks, laptop bags and sleeves that help you put together a great look for your travels.” The Subterra 34L is a dual purpose pack that can function as a travel bag or everyday backpack. We’re curious to see if they can pull this off.

The Thule Subterra 34L is a great looking pack that works well as a daypack or travel bag. The usual pitfalls of a roll top bag are fixed by the two side access zips and the side pocket expands enough to fit a surprisingly large water bottle—and you can barely tell it’s even there when not in use! This is a pack that’ll have you covered on a weekend city break or meeting up with a business partner at a coffee house, with enough additional features to hold and organize everything you may have with you.

I like this bag a lot but I don’t think it will work for my trip coming up. I have been on the hunt for a bag that will fit in United Airlines personal item bag size restrictions. A lot harder than you think to find a bag that works. Any suggestions?

Pack Hacker says:

What’s your favorite One Bag Travel / Daypack combo? Do you find that it “works”, or is this combo just too large for you?

Great review and great bag. Subbed!

Thule is one of the most underrated brands. I’ve been using one of their camera backpacks for the past 3-4 years. Never failed and works great in all conditions.
