The Thule Subterra Collection

At the Thule Subterra Collection launch, one thing I noticed when we previewed their new collection, all their packs share the same sleek and simple design. No ugly interruption at the bag’s smooth lines. The compartments are really well thought out as they are smartly hidden and all elements, from the sleeves, to pockets are functional. Thule’s years of experience clearly shows in their new Subterra Collection. They know what they are doing and seemed to have read what travelers like me had in mind on what we look for a luggage or backpack.

All Thule Subterra Collection models are made with 800D Nylon material and comes in ember, dark shadow and mineral colors.

  • 30L Subterra is a larger travel backpack that brings the design from the 23L. The laptop can be placed inside the main compartment or the dedicated side compartment for easy access. (SRP Php 6,990)
  • 34L Subterra is probably a personal favorite of the lot. The main compartment has a rolltop opening with magnetic enclosure. It also comes with its own pack cube to organize clothes which is a huge plus. There’s a side compartment for laptops and side zippers for the main compartments. Shoulder straps are quite comfortable as well. (SRP 7,990)
