    How this product supports education

    In Cambodia, many families are forced to make a heartbreaking choice: send their children to school or have enough food for the family to eat. By purchasing this product, you help to change that difficult reality by providing a child with 2 meals a day at school for a year. Learn More Here. 

    How your backpack is unique

    The name of the child your backpack supported is embroidered in Khmer (the script of Cambodia) on the left strap of your backpack making your pack, like your impact, completely unique.

    Backpack Patch Khmer Name

    Uniquely Individual.

    Every Khmer Explorer supports the education of a deserving Cambodian child. The name of the individual child supported is elegantly embroidered on the heart (left) strap in the Khmer script of Cambodia. You may meet other travellers with a Khmer Explorer, but your backpack and impact is uniquely yours.

    Seamless Organization.

    From a one week yoga retreat in Bali to a two year odyssey around the globe, the Khmer Explorer has been designed to optimize how you carry your gear. A three-piece removable packing system integrates seamlessly into the spacious back compartment, helping organization come naturally to even the least organized traveller.

    Hip Belt Pocket.

    To keep your phone or cash nearby when moving through busy markets, streets or train stations.

    Ergonomic Features.

    The Khmer Explorer doesn't look like a hiking backpack, but it can certainly carry loads like one. A fully adjustable suspension system allows you to adjust the size of the bag to fit your torso. Plus a built-in aluminum frame system and a concealable hip belt take up to 80% of the weight off your shoulders. This allows you to focus on exploring your new destination, not the pain of an aching back or strained neck.
     

    ERGONOMIC DESIGN BACKPACK
    Four Compression Straps ON KHMER EXPLORER TRAVEL BACKPACK

    Four Adjustable Compression Straps.

    Bring heavy loads closer to your back, making carrying lots of gear that much easier. The Khmer Explorer's compression straps also provide a convenient place to attach a tripod, yoga mat or carabiners.
     

    Travel Mode.

    Checking your Khmer Explorer at the airport is a breeze. Simply remove the shoulder straps, tuck them away in the back zip compartment, and slide the hip belt straps into the integrated pouch. No more anxiety over straps catching in luggage carousels.

    Easy-Clean Bottom.

    Even the dirtiest floors are no match for the Khmer Explorer's easy clean and durable tarpaulin bottom.

    Exploring with the Banana has been amazing so far!

    I was lucky enough to preorder my back so I would get it before starting out on my year of travel. It was the only backpack I wanted to take because I am notoriously bad at packing and knew a top loading backpack would cause major airport incidents... such as, needing to search for the juice box I squished in my bag at airport security (happened in Ecuador), or trying desperately not to disturb the other 7 people in my hostel room as I search for my retainers late at night. The clam-shell features of this bag has already made packing so much easier. I have unzipped the bag from the side to reach for an item tucked away at the very bottom of the pack numerous times already. You also look pretty magical when you can whip out your Moroccan oil at the last minute before heading out the door.
    There are other features which I would like to point out now... It has already been on 13 planes rides and countless bus/train rides in Europe and surprisingly it doesn't look dirty or beat up at all.
    When riding on trains where pickpockets may be I feel very safe with the Banana. Because it does tend to pack more outwards than up, you can produce lots of force with it when you twist your body. This deters a few people from getting to close which is kinda nice. Also, when packed with nothing hanging off of it it is really slick looking. You can also hide the zipper pulls under a strap on the side for extra security so it's harder to get into.
    It is great for backpacking in Europe (done Ireland, Italy, Croatia, Spain and Portugal). I did do the West Coast Trail in BC Canada with it as well. A tough 6 day hike where you have to pack your own tent and food. It worked good, but would recommend making sure you do not have to carry too much weight as it can get a little heavy on the shoulders. Tested its water resistance though and it passed :)
    Also, the packing cubes it comes with are great. Makes organization much easier.
    Finally, it looks so stylish. Turning many heads with it ...

    Thanks for the review Sarah! We're thrilled to hear you've put your pack to such great use already. We hope you continue to enjoy travelling the world with it and turning heads along the way. :)

    Great for long term travel

    I am using my new Banana Backpack for a 5 month trip and have found it to be a huge upgrade over previous backpacks I have used. The many packing compartments make organization very easy and the many adjustable components make it easier on my shoulders which have struggled through previous trips. I would highly recommend this backpack!

    Thanks for the review Michael. Glad to hear the pack is keeping you organized and comfortable on your adventure!
