Hence the name, the Traveler Deluxe is an expanded version of the original Traveler design. All the core exterior features are there for ID area, shock-cord side strap, pockets, pen slots etc.
The main difference, however is that the Deluxe version is a folder so the inside unfolds to reveal many wallet-like organization slots. Some features include 3 zipper pockets with 2 mesh areas, large cord loop for a tie-down point, and MANY slim pockets. One side has a velcro strap to help secure insides. If you don't like or need it, one can tuck into a pocket or cut off. This side appears to be designed for mostly wallet needs with the card slots. The other side is more multipurpose since the pockets are much deeper allowing storage of odd shaped papers. Almost anywhere in the interior makes for a good place to put one's money or small pieces of paper. Another small change is the main ID clear pocket and the slim pockets above it, have a thin velcro security strap. I had this tucked in on most of my pictures since items seem plenty secure when the main flap is sealed. Personally, I would have put the maxpedition logo on the back rather than all up in my velcro loop space. For those who like the features of the original Traveler, but would also like built in wallet features, check out this Deluxe version.
