To be Determined
I have yet to try the Gravel Travel System on a trip, but everything seems to be of high quality and a practice load feels comfortable on my back. I don't love the slight sheen, but it's a small price to pay for the quality.
Hi Punareay! Can't wait to hear how it holds up on your trip! That sheen is just part of the coating that keeps the bags water & scratch resistant! -Caitlin
Solid pair of travel awesomeness
I still have many trips ahead of me with these bags, but so far I have been very impressed. The right amount of space when I need it and not too much space where I pack too much.
Hi Joey! Saweeet! Can't wait to hear how they do on the rest of your trips! -Caitlin
So far the bundle looks like it’s going to fit my travel needs perfectly. Bigger than what I currently have, which is what I was looking for, but still small enough for a carry-on. The outside water bottle pocket holds a 40 oz water bottle perfectly!
Hi Jessica! YAY! Can't wait for you to take them on your next trip!! -Caitlin
Improved Travel System
Took both bags on a weekend subway/train trip to replace the usual rolling suitcase and non-travel backpacks we use. Wore the 42L as a backpack and carried the 11L like a tote. Very easy to navigate taking the 42L on and off for subway travel and fit perfectly overhead on the train overhead luggage rack. Even though both bags were fully packed, they were never too heavy or cumbersome, even while walking many city blocks. I was very excited to see that Gravel listened to their customers and upgraded the G-hooks for the 11L which now have a clip closure for extra security. All zippers were very solid and smooth, appreciate the extra loops on the 42L to make opening/closing easier. Looking forward to more travel with this cleverly-designed and quality system!
Hi Timothy! WOW! Thank you for such a detailed review! I'm so glad your travel bags have been a great fit. :D -Caitlin
Love the design and flexibility of both bags. My favorite travel bags for domestic and international
Hi Chris! YES! This is a major win!! So glad you love them! -Caitlin
