G4Free 40L Travel Backpack Review — Amazingly Fit for Adventure!

I bought the G4Free expecting a light backpack that could carry a few things I had for my long-awaited hiking trip. I was not at all disappointed with my purchase; after the first few hikes, the backpack turned out to be just what I was looking for in size and weight. Admittedly, I thought I might have to purchase another backpack after two or three hikes, thinking the G4Free Travel Backpack would not last very long, but I was agreeably surprised!

The backpack is as sturdy as it is light. There are a few other great features added to that as well, as I will explain in greater detail, but I was not at all disappointed with the buy.

As with almost any product, it is not everything you need, especially if you are an advanced hiker looking to pack as much as you can.

I want to go into this review by stating that the reason why I rate this backpack so highly is that I don’t assume it has everything you could ever want; instead, I approach my review with the knowledge that it is the best of its kind.


  • To start off, one of the most impressive features of this backpack is its lightweight material.
  • Being already obliged to carry weight for what I need, there could be nothing more irritating than having a hiking bag that is adding to that weight in and of itself.
  • However, this is not the case here, with the G4Free Backpack, at three-quarters of a pound, it is a considerably lightweight backpack given its size.
  • The lightweight not only means you are not burdened more than you need to be, but it also allows the backpack a convenient sort of versatility that will enable you to fold it and store it in an ultra-compact pouch when not in use.
No products found.
  • Its 40L storage capacity is pretty impressive, and it is more than enough for a short hiking trip, which is what the G4Free Travel Backpack is made for anyway. That amount of volume is calculated by its depth at 7.8 inches multiplied by a height of 22.8 inches and a width of 13.4 inches. Again, not the largest of bags, but more than enough for all intended purposes.
  • The G4Free 40L bag is made of high-quality, ultra-durable nylon fabric that ensures that you will have the rucksack for many years to come. Because the last thing you want while on a hiking excursion is to have your backpack give in to the weight of its content, which is a hiker’s worst nightmare!
  • Much of what wear backpacks down are the harsh conditions they are put through. The nylon fabric of the G4Free hiking bag is tear-resistant and waterproof, which adds to its durability.
  • Chest clips also help add comfort and stability. There are a few external pockets and pouches to help reach into things quickly without taking the backpack off, such as the spandex front pouch.
  • Finally, there is the comfort factor that is just as important as everything else the backpack has to offer. The shoulder straps, which are well-padded and adjustable, are the first things you will want to look at as they touch the part of the body that has to carry all the weight.

Watch the video below, highlighting some of the great features of the G4Free Travel Backpack:


There are a lot of quality backpacks out there that offer huge storage space, durability, and comfort. However, the G4Free Travel Backpack is amongst the very few backpacks on the market that offer all those qualities all at once and so well, without any trade-offs.

The great thing about the G4Free 40L bag is that it provides a little bit of everything in a unique and well-balanced way.


Nothing to report.


There is a certain humility that you get out of the G4Free Travel Backpack as if it presents itself without any promises, except perhaps, with the intention of pleasantly surprising you.

Most users aren’t professional mountaineers looking to ascend the highest heights, but instead, explorative hikers who are looking for a backpack that will serve their needs in as reliable a way as possible, and the G4Free Travel Bag delivers on that front.

If you know what you are looking for, there is no way to be disappointed in what the G4 Free 40L Backpack has to offer.

  1. I have the G4Free 40L pack, and I rate it as high as you do. However, to list no cons whatsoever, I think it is a little misleading. You could have said that due to its extremely lightweight construction, more care needs to be taken in the Bush. The lack of a hip belt can sometimes make it difficult to distribute the weight comfortably. You could have mentioned the pack needs to be used with a foam seat like the thermarest Z seat for comfort on the back when fully loaded or that the front pouch is very thin, making it difficult to take things out when the pack is filled.

    All this being said, the pros far outweigh the cons. The pack is ultralight and ultra-cheap without being ultra crap. So much so that I immediately purchased the 45-liter variant for multiple-day trips.

    • Duly noted, thanks for your insightful thoughts about the G4Free travel backpack. They are much appreciated. I hope you enjoy using the 45L version of the G4 pack as well.

  2. I like the fact that it is lightweight. I have a family already to carry along on our next trip. I don’t want to begin to worry about the weight of the bag itself. I will go check it out on Amazon.

    What about the quality of the material? Can I use this back in rough terrains? Thanks for sharing.

    • The G4Free backpack is made of high-quality, ultra-durable nylon fabric. It is also water and tear-resistant, so, yes, it will withstand hiking on rough terrains.

      If you have more questions about the G4Free Travel Backpack, don’t hesitate to drop me a line I will gladly assist you.

  3. That looks like an excellent backpack. Mine has padded shoulders with chest and waist straps and is certainly showerproof, not sure how it would fare in heavy rain. My backpack certainly isn’t as lightweight as the G4Free Travel Backpack is.

    I was going to loan my backpack to my grandson for a hiking trip. However, it looks like he might want something along the lines of this G4Free backpack.

    Thank you for the informative article, it’s very useful. Will share on social media.

    • What is the brand of your hiking backpack, Linda? Since the G4Free 40L backpack offers excellent value for the price, you can’t go wrong by picking the G4Free for your outdoor adventures. I think that your grandson will be pleased with its purchase of the G4Free hiking bag. Thanks for sharing.

  4. The G4 Free Backpack seems to have a lot of colors to choose from. I would always go for the blacks and darks, especially if it is a hiking adventure.

    The size is quite OK for a few days out there. I love that it is waterproof, perfect for the outside weather. The different compartments add to its functionality. I am impressed that items can still be attached outside the bag and always be able to carry it comfortably. I will not need to pack and unpack every time I am looking for an item. Thank you for this great suggestion.

    • Yes, you are right, the G4Free Travel Backpack is quite versatile and quite roomy for storage space of 40L! Thanks for stopping by.
