Matador GlobeRider45 Travel Backpack

The GlobeRider45 is engineered inside and out to be the ultimate pack for the world traveler. It combines the organization of a traditional travel bag with the carry harness of a mountaineering pack. 


With global adventure travel, you never know exactly what’s in store. It could be a simple plane ride, or a 3 mile walk across town from the bus depot…in the rain. Dragging a roller bag up a muddy dirt road in Cambodia just doesn’t cut it, but we’ve always liked the clamshell organization they offer. We prefer the carry comfort and capability of hiking packs, but hate the lack of access and organization for travel. 

We built the GlobeRider45 to combine the best of both worlds: The organization of a traditional travel bag with the carry performance and weather resistance of a mountaineering pack. We chose the best materials from the outdoor industry and included stowable straps, sealing zippers, plenty of handles, and external lash points so you can throw it around or tie it down in the harshest conditions. Versatility creates opportunity for adventure — GlobeRider45 was built for exactly that.
