Product Information


Similar in size to the 555 and even more luxurious, the bag has numerous layout options inside.

Included are:

  • Padded base
  • 'SuperFlex 10-15' partition
  • 'SuperFlex 10-18' partition
  • 'SuperFlex Flap' (not shown in photo)

There are 20+ different sizes/styles of padded dividers available to customize the bag to your gear:

  • SuperFlex Partitions
  • DF Dividers
  • V-Bridge 15

Please note the photo shows '9-15' and '10-15' size SuperFlex Partitions.


Under the main flap, you can find the main compartment as well as two front zipped pockets and two dump pockets with a press stud close.

The main compartment is padded on all 4 sides, plus the padded base. It boasts a heavy-duty zip that can be folded out of the way when the bag is in use.

In total, the 550 has 5 pockets, plus the main compartment and two removable End Pockets.


The rear streamlined pocket is ideal for storing maps or travel documents without having to open the main flap or compartment.


Two detachable 550 End Pockets for additional storage – the only bag we sell that comes with End Pockets included.


The front buckle straps keep the bag closed and secure and are perfect for those who want an alternative to the QRS straps on some of our other bags.


The 550 has brass feet mounted to strong leather corner patches. Together this helps prevent wear to the corners of the bag and extend its longevity.
