Bellroy Duo Totepack Review – Great Buy or Waste of Money?

By John


I am a huge fan of Bellroy and they have launched their bag line a couple of months ago.

This is a quick review of the Bellroy Duo Totepack, which is the first bag from their new line of products that I really found interesting.

Looks like a tote, carries like a backpack, so what is it really?

Well, it’s both.

So should you really spend $289 on a tote bag/backpack?


That’s a great question and I would like to give you some of the ins and outs of this bag so you can make a wiser decision on your own.

Let’s do a quick review so we  can narrow down every reason why we should or should not buy the Bellroy Duo Totepack.


First, let’s talk about looks as this is probably 90% of what will make your final decision anyways.

I’m sure you can agree that this is one pretty looking man carry and just like you, I wanted one for myself especially how I’m a backpack kind of guy.

However, this specific bag has gotten me to come out of my comfort zone and I have grown to like what a tote can do.

So you can carry this as a backpack but turn it into a tote by simply tucking some straps away.


I’m such a backpacker that I’m used to having to pull everything out when I need something at the bottom.

With the Duo Totepack or even a tote bag for that matter, having everything stored in a vertical manner has actually simplified a lot of things.

So what you really have here is a tote that can be carried on your back, which is pretty sweet if you ask me.


I have not had the chance to give it some wear and tear but I can tell you that Bellroy has a 3 year, replace your product for whatever reason, which is really awesome.

I have kids, so my Bellroy phone case for my iPhone 6 got a little scuffed up and started to fall apart and they sent me a new one right away.

Well, I actually asked them if I can trade it for something else and just pay the difference and they even agreed to that.

So if you ever have any problems with this bag, you have 3 years to have it replaced with no questions asked.

The Price

So I think everything about this bag is pretty up there but that’s not the problem for most of us.

To get the Duo Totepack, you can expect to fork out $289 just for a bag.

So this is where you really need to ask yourself some questions as everything else is good to go.

Besides its sleek appearance, are you going to be in a bind for spending so much money?

If not, I’m sure you can make up your mind right now.

If you’re in the market for a new bag this is definitely one to consider.

If you can’t afford it, I’m sure you can survive until you do have some play money.

I do hope that this short review of the Bellroy Duo Totepack has helped you in one way or another and I also hope that you can make a final decision.

So everything is on you now…

  1. I absolutely LOVE the look of the Bellroy Duo Totepack! Classy yet functional. This is up there in price, but… as long as it will last, I don’t see the issue spending that type of money on something that will last! I know that my son likes North Face backpacks and they aren’t cheap either. It sound like the customer service team at this company is excellent as well. So… really, you have nothing to lose.

    Very attractive! In fact… I may go and get one for my hubbie! ((:

  2. I really love the look of this bag. It is like a 2 in 1 kind of bag where you can easily change between a normal backpack to tote bag – which is really awesome! But i have to admit the price is a little too high for a product like this. May i know what kind of material they use in this to warrant such hefty price tag?

  3. I actually was looking at this one on amazon the other day. I definitely liked that it has a back pack feature. It looks quite stylish not only for men 🙂
    I would like to know how it looks inside though, are there any handful compartments? I know that it is a brief review but hoping to get more information about this tot before spending close to $300.

  4. Bellroy Duo Totepack is definitely stylish and classy, and I like how it can be used as a backpack when I am looking for convenience and also use it as a tote when I am looking for style and when the bag is not so heavy. The price might put me off for a bit, so I am still looking around for other alternatives. Will bookmark your page for future reference, though! Thank you for the great sharing.

  5. I love the concept of a two in one backpack, a tote and a bag haha however for the price of $289 I don’t think it is worth it but that does not mean the product is bad. I just don’t think its worth the price plus the design is rather plain. Do they offer a variety of colors?
