Probably my dreaded part when traveling is packing (and unpacking). Although I can say I’ve mastered the art of packing light, it’s still not something I love to do. The only consolation I get is that I could carry a nice bag. This is probably why I’m quite picky when it comes to my travel bags.
I always see Thule in malls or even when browsing the internet, but to be honest, I never got the chance to explore it. Thankfully, I was recently introduced to the brand and the newest Thule Subterra Collection.
Looks a little plain or too masculine for your taste? I had the same impression at first, BUT wait for it… wait for it…
Things changed when Mr. Paulino Servado III, Thule’s Head of Marketing Communications, showed how each of these bags works.
The Thule Subterra collection offers luggage and backpacks, catering to different needs or adventures.
Thule Subterra Travel Backpack 34L
Techies and young working professionals don’t have to worry about their prized gadgets and devices as they can snugly pack their valuables in the travel backpack. The nifty backpack functions both as a travel bag and an everyday backpack, so enjoy its versatility in your everyday life, too. Safely store your laptop (15″ MacBook Pro® or 15.6″ PC) in the padded laptop sleeve with SafeEdge construction and secure flap closure, and keep your accessories such as cords and charges neatly put away in the internal PowerPocket and packing cube. (Use the same cube to pack clothes for effortless travel.) Additional storage is available for your tablet with the dedicated pocket with soft, interior lining. Easily access any of your devices through the wide roll top opening with magnetic closure, side zippers and access panels.

Thule Subterra Carry-On 40L
A light packer’s and adventurer’s dream, the Thule Subterra Carry-On is a versatile, soft-sided bag designed to help maximize packing space. It can be carried two ways: as a backpack and a shoulder bag (all straps neatly tuck away when not in use). Stuff your clothes, pack away your valuables, as well as separate your shoes and dirty laundry from your other belongings with ease thanks to its multi-purpose compartment. For business executives and young professionals, the Carry-On has a separate sleek laptop sleeve with tablet storage, PowerPocket and accessory organization. Feel more secure while you’re on-the-go.
Thule Subterra Luggage and Duffel 55CM
A must-have for the jet-setting lot, the Subterra Luggage is a handy 2-in-1 piece that conveniently splits into two independent carry-on compliant pieces, making it easier for you to stay organized. Choose between packing all your valuables into one large checked piece of luggage or two smaller carry-ons. The stylish duffel also handles smoothly as it is reinforced with tough, oversized wheels and V-tubing telescoping, which makes weaving through airport lines a cinch. It allows for effortless travel thanks to the piggyback strap attachment loop that allows an additional bag to be hooked on. Live big, while packing just the bare minimum. Ensuring you a hassle-free travel, this carry-on fits neatly in overhead bins and complies with carry-on requirements for most airlines. No more extra time spent waiting in line for check-in.
Thule Subterra Luggage 70CM – Blue
This 2-in-1 travel and duffel bag sports a wide-mouth access and divided main compartments to easily pack and organize your travel essentials. The spacious rolling duffel also protects your valuables from the elements with durable, water-resistant materials. Easily access your keys, wallet and smaller items through the zippered pocket, while keep belongings in place throughout your trip with the external compression straps.
If you’ve read the descriptions of the bags above, you’ve probably noticed how innovative they are. I was impressed — make that very impressed! I’ve never really seen a bag with much compartments. If you’re O.C. like me, you’ll definitely go crazy with these bags. Just imagine a bag that you can split into two so you can either check-in 1 big luggage or split into 2 pieces (one handcarry and one handbag) if you want to skip the hassle of waiting for your luggage. The bags in this collection are also made for those who can’t live without their gadgets. There are secure and easy-access compartments for laptops and phones. Oh, and they really thought about the designs — even the smallest details, such as pocket where you can hide the wires of your chargers in case you want to charge your gadgets inside your bag. I’m simply amazed! Hmmm… for my next travel, maybe? 😉
