Tortuga helps travelers avoid the cost and hassle of checked luggage with carry-on-sized travel backpacks.
Childhood best friends Fred Perrotta and Jeremy Cohen founded Tortuga in 2010. A backpacking trip to Eastern Europe inspired us to “scratch our own itch.” We couldn’t find the perfect travel backpack; so we made it.
Tortuga is our vision for the future of work: distributed and value-aligned.
We believe that sharing values is more important than sharing an office. Our small team works remotely and lives all over the world.
Tortuga has been named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s 100 Brilliant Companies, and our products have won awards from The Wirecutter and Carryology.
