Almost perfect for travel AND photography

I can't believe I overlooked this bag for so long! I have the Enroute Camera 25L and like a lot about it, but it's small (25L is a stretch IMO), I don't use the U-shaped camera access (I prefer the long straight side zip as this Subterra 34L has on the right hand side), and the back panel insert in the Enroute is quite stiff; the Subterra solves pretty much all these issues for me. Some things I wish they'd bring over from the Enroute design to the Subterra: - The Enroute front pockets, where there's a quick stash at the top and another accessed from the shoulder, but on the right hand side please (both with a bit more organization for pens, power banks, etc.) - The roll top where the clips are at the very top of the Enroute works better for any roll positioning; the Subterra seems only useful in one position. - With the roll top item above, the top grab handle on the Subterra would need to be moved to be accessible at all times; maybe like the Enroute, but preferably something sleeker. - The laptop compartment at the top instead of the side would allow the side access to be a little closer to the back panel making side access easier when dropping it to one shoulder. - A side access zipper to the main compartment on both sides; the same on both sides though, and both as close to the back panel as possible, unlike how they are on the Enroute. Some things I wish they'd add that neither bag has: - Grab handles on all sides; top, left, right, and bottom, all towards the back panel as much as possible, but easy to grab from any side when pulling down from overhead bins, etc. - Stretch mesh side pockets on both sides (I'd be ok with both being like the ones on the Subterra too, but stretch mesh would probably fit better). - Add a few accessory attachment points for things like carabiners and about 2/3 to 3/4 up on the sides by the back panel, add some nylon straps for G hooks with gatekeepers. These could be for hanging accessories, but I would like them for a removable luggage strap; fully loaded, lifting a heavy bag over the slide through style on the Subterra can be difficult to manage. The Subterra is a great bag that I highly recommend, but Thule, please feel free to contact me if you want someone to test out some prototypes with any of these changes ;)

All purpose Bag

I bought this one to replace my old one. It lasted about 7 years. Daily 2/12 hour commute. Stored everything, computer,ipad, lunch and clothing. Easy on the back. Only reason why I bought a new one was because the zipper broke. Would definitely recommend

Good Travel Companion

I bought this for my 14 day travel to Europe. I used it with my carry on, for my short haul flights within Europe. Overall the product is good. It could be lighter though. The organizer mesh bag added to the weight and occupied valuable space which did not really serve much purpose since the bag itself is well padded and usually clothes don't need that much protection. The handles and zippers are sturdy and stitched well. One thing that made me nervous throughout the trip was the pull weight of the top handle bar on the buckles. I think they are well attached to the body but still transferring the weight of the bag through those buckles to the handle wasn't the best idea from my point of view. Material is great though.

Love this bag!!!

I purchased this bag 4 months ago. Have used it for domestic travel primarily (multiple work trips). Holds a lot. Comfortable to wear. Love that the top can expand or contract down. Easy to access main compartment from side zip or top. Fits nicely under the seat in front of me. I travel for multiple days with this and a roller bag. Also- Love the clean look.

Love it but too thick

I love the functionality and all the storage of this bag, but there is just way too much padding. There is about 1” of foam used in this bag. It’s a real bummer because this was a big splurge price wise, but I never use it because it’s just too bulky.

Great travel bag

I am obsessed with the Mineral Thule Subeterra line because of its minimalist sleekness design: I have the smaller backpack, boarding bag, and rolling carryon now I purchased the larger Thule subterra which I love. I love the bright orange color in the inside of the bag because it makes it easy to find my belongings—they don’t get easily lost or blend in like my previous bags. My only wish is that it had a waist strap. For being a big bag it should definitely have a waist strap, too. For that I give it a 4 star: almost perfect bag but not quite there yet.

100% pleased with this Backpack.

I just returned from my first trip using my new Subterra backpack. It provided a lot of storage room for overnight items that I didn't want to put in my checked bag. It has padded electronics storage and many other extra features in addition to a large middle compartment which is accessible from the main full opening in the top and you can also access it from the side zipper; also having the option of carrying it as an upright pack or by the side handle in a horizontal position like a carry-on suitcase. Every zipper, handle and pocket is top quality. It is a perfect design for someone who travels for business or pleasure. I love it.
