At Adventurist Backpack Co., we design mid-priced and high-quality minimalist backpacks for travel, with a social cause. They’re a perfect backpack for female entrepreneurs that love to travel or travel for business.

For every backpack sold, we provide 25 meals to families in need across the U.S. through our partnership with the nonprofit Feeding America. Since our launch just over four years ago, we’ve been able to provide almost 250,000 meals to families across the country.

Our Adventurist Classic backpack is $65, and a great gift for anyone that loves to travel, or that just needs a high-quality and fashionable backpack for work and getting around town. The Classic is water-resistant, made with 1000D polyester and vegan leather. It has padding both front and back for increased protection for electronics/camera gear while fitting up to a 15″ laptop in the laptop sleeve. It also fits perfectly underneath the seat of an airplane as a personal item.

We also have a new crossbody bag called the Sidekick for $39 and our Nomad sling bag for $45, which are great options as more affordable gifts (under $50) for travel and everyday adventures. Both the Sidekick and Nomad are made with the same high-quality materials as the Classic and provide 25 meals to families in need for each purchase.
