The Tres Hombres is a tough carry-on legal, convertible-hybrid, backpack-duffel style bag that is the next great evolution in our line of Expedition Series bags. With airlines tightening up restrictions on carry-on baggage, the Tres Hombres twin external compression straps can help you "squeeze under" the new regulations.
CARRY BULKY ITEMS?
No problem. This carry-on bag borrowed a feature from our checked travel expedition bags: twin exterior cinch-down compression straps. Watch the packing video with Professional Travel Guide Kasey Austin from Austin Adventures as she demonstrates cleverly packing some very bulky and fragile items.
THREE EXTRA LONG STORAGE COMPARTMENTS.
The Tres Hombres has a unique three compartment system. It's carry-on legal (linear length) bag featuring three long compartments. There's the main compartment in the middle with more than enough room for your clothes. This compartment features a "break-over" across the top zipper configuration that also allows you to unzip the bag down the sides giving you wide open access to the compartment. The twin raised side compartments give you the option of storing your dress shoes, running shoes or heels--you can even fit your SCUBA flippers in the 20 inch long compartments. Tucked into the raised side compartments you have twin flat side panel zippered pockets for smaller items.
EXTERNAL LUGGAGE COMPRESSION STRAPS.
Twin exterior built-in compression straps help pack down your gear down tight (especially great if you plan on bringing home more than what you went out with). It also has handy grab loops for pulling out of overhead bins or getting on or off vehicle roof racks, a padded bottom covered featuring our tough 1050 weight Ballistic CORDURA® fabric nylon for extra protection and service life, and of course, the store-able retractable backpack straps 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.
COUNTLESS WAYS TO CARRY.

Tres Hombres Trivia: We called it the "Tres" due to it's three main compartments and "Hombres" because CEO Jim Markel tested it out in during a trip to Guatemala, where he was the resident "hombres".
