Khmer Explorer Travel Set

Regular price $395 CAD

We understand that most backpacks weren’t designed for travel. Bright colours that draw unwanted attention and top-loading compartments that make organization impossible are the last things you want to worry about when you're on the road. That's why we built the Khmer Explorer Travel Set to prevent your luggage from holding you back and to help you have the adventure of a lifetime.

We offer free standard shipping (10-14 business days) to Canada and the United States on the Khmer Explorer!

Express Shipping (1-3 Business Days) is also available if you're in a rush. Please add to cart and proceed to checkout for an accurate calculation for your shipping address. If you're on a specific timeline or have a special shipping request please contact us

We're sure you'll love your Khmer Explorer, but if for any reason you don't, we're happy to take it back (in original condition) and provide you with a full refund within 30 days of the original shipping date.

We'll also cover the cost of return shipping for customers located in Canada. (sorry we can't yet offer this for our US customers)

Less Stress. More fun

How The Khmer Explorer Will Improve Your Adventure

The 60L Khmer Explorer utilizes 2 huge lay flat compartments to easily store all the gear you need for your adventure.  Use the integrated packing system to stay organized and  stop wasting time repacking and digging around for your gear.

Banana Backpacks Wet Gear Bag

Protect Your Clean Gear from the Dirty

The Integrated Packing System

Need to grab something in a hurry?

Lay Flat Design

Easy Access Hip Belt Pocket

Sure, the hip belt will save your shoulders and your back, but it's also home to this convenient pocket. Perfect for stashing your phone or wallet when you're on the move.

Keep Thieves Out with Lockable Zipps

Having stuff stolen when you travel can put a serious damper on your trip. Fortunately, lockable zippers help keep unwanted hands out of your bag. 

Easy Clean Bottom, 'Cause You'll Need It

From hostel bathrooms to dirty bus stations, your bag can pick up some unwanted souvenirs. Wipe them off with the easy clean bottom. 

Keep The Elements Out

Weatherproof Materials

Stop worrying about a rain shower. The Khmer Explorer's 2X PU 500D Kodra Nylon exterior is fully weatherproof and built to keep your belongings dry no matter what the unpredictable world of travel throws at you.

Secret Pocket

When you're stuck without a locker or safe, the secret pocket keeps your valuables hidden and out of plain view. 

One Size Fits All. Comfortably

The adjustable suspension system adapts to all shapes and sizes and with the integrated hip-belt provides premium comfort over extended periods of walking.

Quick Access Front Pocket

Whether it's sunscreen or a guidebook, important items are always easy to grab with the quick access front pocket. 

Your Unique Impact

How Your Purchase Makes A Difference

By purchasing the Khmer Explorer you support the education of a child in the developing world. We embroider that child's name on the left strap of your bag. Here's how it works:

1. You Purchase A Backpack

Your purchase of the Khmer Explorer Travel Set pays for 2 meals a day at school for 1 year for a child in Cambodia.

2. You Help Build A Better World

Many families in countries like Cambodia are employed in subsistence agriculture and children are forced to stay home from school and work in the fields simply to ensure there is enough food for the family to eat. By providing school meals, your purchase gives these kids the gift of an education and helps to build a better world.

3. You Get a Bag That's Truly Unique

There is no change and no better future without your unique impact. That’s why we embroider the name of the child whose education you helped to support on the left strap of your bag, right above your heart, as a reminder you can make a difference.

Just got back from 3 weeks in Colombia with my new Banana Backpack - don't regret the purchase at all! I've always hated having to unpack and pack every few days when traveling, but with this backpack I found that I rarely had to do that. Everything is packed away so nicely and it's super easy to access everything at any time; no more digging around for that shirt you swore you packed! I also love the packing cubes, and the large separate bag that I used for laundry and shoes.

When I got home today, I accidentally slammed my car door on one of the straps and the clip completely broke. I emailed Michael and showed him a picture, asking if I could buy a replacement from them or if I should find one somewhere out here. He responded within a couple hours and said that a new one is on its way! Super impressed with the service!

Thanks for the review Vanessa. We're thrilled that your Explorer made your trip to Colombia even better. We're always happy to help get your gear back up and running in the case of messy car door and buckle altercations! :) Happy Travels, -Michael

Worth the money

Lots of great pockets and great access to everything because of the way the zippers are.

Backpack elegance

I have been a traveller for many decades and am always looking for the best luggage for the job. As a result, I have a broad selection, but there are places to go that are not served by my beautiful roller bags, and for that reason, a new pack was in order. I am a firm believer in packing cubes, so when the pack came with cubes designed to fit, I was interested. And then I hate top loading packs - the need to explode every time I need a single item, so another bonus for the Khmer. And then the fabric - it looks grown up. I feel like I could stop off at a business meeting while travelling and look professional. Thanks for the great design. And the fantastic customer service. My pack arrived without the packing cubes and Michael had them to me in a day.

Thanks for the review Geraldine. I'm happy to hear that the Khmer Explorer has eliminated the dreaded top-load explosion and kept you organized and looking professional during your travels. I only hope your beautiful roller suitcases aren't getting too jealous of all the time you've been spending with your new pack. :) -Michael

Organized Backpacking

I have been really happy with the Khmer Explorer backpack. After 4 years of traveling around Latin America I have found a way to keep my things organized. I tend to use the inner black bag to keep my cooler weather hiking things separate from the rest of my bag when I am at the beach and vice versa. Organised backpacking helps you save time and money by ensuring your not missing anything.

Thanks again

Thanks for the review Kyle! Glad to hear after 4 years you've been able to find some backpack bliss. After years of losing things and being forced to find replacements on the fly, we can definitely relate to the perks of staying organized on the road. Happy travels!

Awesome backpack! Took a while to get the hang of all the different compartments, but now that I have, I love it! It's so handy having separate areas to store everything. So much room and super durable!
