The Lil Hombre is a collapsible bag that makes your travel a cinch.

Little brother to the sensational Tres Hombres this tough carry-on legal, convertible-hybrid, backpack-duffel style bag is the next great evolution in airline carry-on bags. Down-sized to fit travelers with smaller frames, the Lil Hombre features the same twin external compression straps that can help you "squeeze under" the new restrictive flight carry-on regulations.

Certainly. Direct from our checked travel expedition bags series, the twin exterior cinch-down compression straps were thoughtfully added. Using these adjustable straps allows you to cinch down and collapse your belongings or lumpy, bulky items and hold 'em in place. Now you can also cinch down your bag to fit in those troublesome international overhead bins, or jam it under your seat.

Twin exterior built-in compression straps help pack down your gear tight which is especially awesome if you plan on bringing home more than what you shipped out with. Handy grab loops on each end help you to easily pull it out of overhead bins or drag it on or off vehicle roof racks. The padded bottom cover features our tough 1050 weight Ballistic CORDURA® nylon for extra protection and service life, and of course, the store-able, retractable backpack straps make for comfortable hands-free shoulder carry.

Wondering what to do with those "flopping" straps when your bag is open? Simply click them together through the loop carry handles on the ends and they'll be out of your way.

The Lil Hombre features a unique three long compartment system that is carry-on legal -- including those smaller fly-over turbo props. There's the long main compartment in the middle with more than enough room for your clothes or other long belongings like scuba gear. This compartment features a "break-over" zipper across the top, a configuration that allows you to unzip the bag part-way down the sides thus giving you a more open access to the compartment. The two raised pocket equally long side compartments give you the option of storing your dress shoes, running shoes or heels in these 19-inch long compartments. Tucked into the outside of each raised side compartments there are twin flat side panel zippered pockets for smaller flat items.

Whether you carry Lil Hombre over your shoulder or cross body using included The Claw non slip shoulder strap, or hands-free on your back with the retractable backpack straps, this is one versatile hybrid "crossover" bag. Here are some variations the Lil Hombre offers in carry travel:

  • Carry it by hand like a suitcase, using the clasp top handles.
  • In front of you by both end grab loop handles using both hands.
  • To your side hanging down by one end-loop handle.
  • Flip it over one shoulder using one end-loop handle.
  • Wear it on your back like a backpack using the clever padded retractable backpack straps.
  • Over your shoulder with The Claw Nonslip Shoulder Strap.
  • Or cross-body with The Claw shoulder strap.


As the little brother to the Tres Hombres, Lil Hombre features everything that made the Tres an immediate top seller. Innovative collapsible design, crossover carry features, plenty of room for a week long journey, tough hardware and build quality to last a lifetime.
