The Grid by Ekster Packs Like a Suitcase and Carries Like a Backpack

Wherever you go, however far off the grid you might travel, this Ekster backpack is the ideal travel companion.

Though it’s built to wear like a backpack, it opens and packs like a suitcase. The spacious main compartment offers 21L of storage to fit not only your necessary electronics, but also clothing, toiletries, and anything else you want to carry.



The suspended laptop compartment will add protection for your computer on the go, and there are dedicated pockets for everything from your sunglasses to your tracker card to your tablet and documents. It’s also compatible with Ekster’s packer cubes, great for customizing the way you pack your camera, tech, and power banks.



Not only is the Grid Backpack made to be water-resistant and sturdy, it’s constructed using recycled PET plastic bottles to minimize its environmental impact. It’s also sized just right to fit into any airplane compartment or slide under your seat for easy access anywhere you go.
