Building off the massive, sell-out success of last year’s collab series, we wanted to make the next generation Matador® x Carryology EDX bag even LITE-er, and even more packable. And our teams were up for the challenge.

Maintaining our performance-first design ethos with a continued focus on durability, water resistance, and storage—saying nothing of aesthetics—we developed this pack from the ground up, bringing in ultra-lightweight materials without sacrificing comfort. From terminal to trailhead, urban to off-grid, this pack functions just as well as your daily driver as it does as part of your larger travel kit.

How do I stow my Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack for travel?
The Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack is designed to be simple and straightforward to pack up for travel. Each bag features a convenient organizational bag that allows for easy storage. Just fold the bag in thirds (vertically), then roll it up, stuff it, compress it, and go.

Does the Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack have comfortable shoulder straps?
We have designed the Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack with comfortable carry in mind. The backpack straps feature lightweight foam padding throughout, and have hidden internal structure that prevents the shoulder straps from pinching inward or digging in. This makes the Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack comfortable enough for all day wear, and even day hikes.

Is the Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack personal-item size compliant?
Yes, the Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack is personal-item size compliant for most airlines.

What size laptop will the laptop pocket accommodate?
The laptop sleeve is easily accessed from inside the pack. It fits up to 16" laptops from all manufacturers.

Is the Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack waterproof?
The Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack is built from weather-resistant materials—including HydraGuard™ weather-resistant seam binding and YKK® sealing zippers on all external pockets. This pack is designed to withstand light to medium precipitation for short periods. Outdoor coatings add further protection by letting water slick off the fabric.

How long is the product warranty?
The Matador® x Carryology EDX Lite Backpack has a 3 year, Total-Protection-Warranty against any manufacturing defects. Built from high quality outdoor fabrics, this mighty little pack is made to last. As always, all Matador® equipment in and out of warranty is eligible for free, in-house repairs.
