Explore Collection

A lifetime of globetrotting across all seven continents fuels Michael's ongoing passion for exploring the world, all in search of a great story or photograph for the HI Travel Tales blog he runs with his wife.

Meet the brand-new Explore Collection, everyday bags sustainably designed to seamlessly integrate into our everyday moments to make life and travel a whole lot easier.

When your days are a blend of travel, work, and play, you need a mix of everyday bags to meet your needs no matter what life throws at you. Enter the Explore Collection, designed to make travel and life easier.

Every bag in the Explore Collection features RENU™ fabric. RENU™ is made from recycled textiles—leftover fabric, shredded fabric, and unwanted clothing. Stuff that would likely end up in the trash if another use was not found for it. This means you get durable, high-performance fabric for your everyday bag, and you help keep waste out of landfills. It’s a win-win situation.

Let's look at how each bag will serve your need for carrying, toting, storing, and accessing gear and clothing throughout a day.


The Backpack

The Explore Backpack 26L is the perfect travel companion that will transition easily from office to the airport and everywhere in between. Like any good daypack, it has all the standard organizing features including space for a laptop, organizing pockets, stretch outside pockets for water bottles or whatever you want to stash in there, and two toggle attachments inside the main compartment for Pack-It™ Reveal E-Tool Organizers. There's even a small detachable hip pack that can be worn when the only things you need to take with you are your wallet, keys, phone, and maybe a snack.


The Transit Bag

The Explore Transit Bag 23L when used in tandem with the backpack, is ideal for those moments when the lines between office and adventure blur. Not quite a duffel, but so much more than a briefcase, the Transit Bag is there when you want your essential items close at hand and ready to deploy as life demands. Weekend escape to the cabin? You're ready. Workout clothes accessible for an afternoon run? Check. Tuck away the backpack straps and deploy the padded cross-body strap to carry it easily when you're wearing the backpack too. It's already tricked out with plenty of internal organization pockets and internal compression straps, so by simply adding a couple of Pack-It™ travel cubes you'll have maximum organization possibilities.


The Mini Messenger Bag

Sometimes, it's the little things that make a big difference. And, this Explore Mini Messenger Bag demonstrates this to perfection. Wear it as a crossbody bag, waist pack, or attach it to the handlebars on a bike or scooter, and it's ready to carry your essentials for the day. There's a padded tablet sleeve, a key fob, and internal organizing pockets.

And, the practicality doesn’t end there. There are other everyday bags in the Explore Collection too, including the Explore Tote Pack 26L and the Explore Crossbody Bag that you may want to consider adding to your bag arsenal as needed.

Whether at home, traveling, or for work, all your future explorations will be made so much easier when you’ve got a trusted, organized, and sustainable bag in your life. And, combine them into a team and your adventures will become unstoppable.
