The MEI Voyageur Backpack

The choice of seasoned travelers since 1978

This is my one essential piece of travel gear. It's been my mobile software development office in Bangkok, my mountaineering kit in Nepal, and even carries my mom's college books in Ithaca, NY.

My current choice in this category is the MEI "Voyageur" pack (pictured above), which is 22 × 14 × 9 inches (maximum permitted carryon size), made of 1000 denier Cordura with an interior urethane coating, and has a parallel stay internal aluminum frame. The hip belt and shoulder harness are lined with nylon knit, and padded with closed cell foam; these zip out of sight for carryon use, and a more "luggage-like" appearance.

The Voyageur holds over 40 liters - all anyone should need for foreign travel - but weights in at under 1600 grams! It is Hand Made in the USA with a 120% money back guarantee on quality.

MEI Voyageur History

The Voyageur has been a cult item for adventure travelers for almost 30 years - due to its solid construction, metal frame and carry-on size. The Voyageur went out of production - and is extremely hard to find. Finally I have hunted the manufacture down and they agreed to allow me to distribute the packs online.

 


Ordering Tips

MEI Voyageur packs normally ship within 2 weeks - But excessive demand and small supply can lead to delays. You can help yourself by mentioning travel dates and second choice colors in your PayPal order notes. It makes sense to plan ahead.

NOTE: Due to recent demand for this hand made product - please plan ahead. Current delivery times can exceed 4 weeks. Please mention travel dates in your order notes.


The Voyageur Quality Guarantee

The pack is of such a high quality - it comes with a lifetime manufacturer's warrantee for the workmanship and raw materials. It is Hand Made to order in the USA.

In addition I will personally offer a 30 day - 120% money back guarantee on the quality of the pack .
