    Tortuga Backpack

    Posted by Eli on Feb 2nd 2023

    I pre-ordered this bag back in October and received it in November so i have put this bag through an entire season of beating. I was blown away with the performance of the bag. It has never once leaked and has kept all of my gear dry and secure. I would buy this bag over any other bag in the market.This is the first time that “you pay for what you get” is not the case. A great price for a great bag.

    Stop looking at the 300 dollar Yeti backpack and get you a Tortuga. Fits comfortably, is certainly waterproof, easy to clean and half the price. Includes a slot for your energy drink or coffee tumblr. Curious about the purpose of the buckle system on the side I'm sure it serves a legitimate purpose since this thing is so well made. Small zipper pouch on the exterior holds hunting licenses perfectly and keeps em dry.

    Best bag ever

    Posted by Jay on Jan 16th 2023

    This is the best quality bag I’ve ever had hunting. It keep all my things dry, has so much room for everything inside, has 2 outside pockets and a place for a drink, and it’s has spots to attach my straps. It’s also so sturdy, doesn’t collapse and the quality is insane. Better than the Yeti.

    Tortuga Review

    Posted by Conrad Lyons on Jan 16th 2023

    About 6 years ago I purchased a Drake waterfowl bag pack. The bag was built well and lasted me for years, however I soon realized that the bag was way more water-resistant than waterproof. I used to have to go home after hunting in heavy rains, only to then spend another hour or more drying my gear off that was in my bag pack. This was an absolute pain in my ass and I used to ask myself why I didn’t own a waterproof bag pack. I can even remember days of bringing an extra heavy duty trash bag just to put my waterfowl bag pack in if it started raining too hard. Fast forward, I heard about this Tortuga bag before it’s release date and I knew that it was something that was essential for me. I am the guy who is going to hunt no matter what the weather man says….can’t kill them from the couch. I am also the guy who puts my gear to the test, I don’t even baby children so I damn sure don’t baby my gear. So far I have had this bag for about 2 months and hunted with it at least 15+ times. I literally do not have a single complaint about the bag yet. It truly is so comfortable that most times I forget that it is on my back. I literally will be throwing out decoys and remember I have a bag on 1/2 way through. I like how it is not “too big” and I don’t just start filling it with unnecessary stuff. It is super durable and I love how neutral the color is. Lets be honest…. High&Dry isn't making any subpar products. This bag is amazing and it pairs well with my H&D Utility Pole. As long as H&D is making quality products and providing me with excellent customer service, they have a customer for life with me!

    Buy it, you won’t regret it

    Posted by Corey Frauenfelder on Jan 16th 2023

    While I haven’t hunted with the Tortuga yet and I can tell you already this thing is awesome. Did a sink check and she is airtight and definitely waterproof. I love the layout of the pockets too. Can’t wait to beat the hell out of this bag for years to come because I know it will take all of the abuse and more flawlessly.
