Osprey Fairview Review (Vs Farpoint) | One Bag Travel Backpack Designed With Women In Mind
 
09:43
The brand new Osprey Fairview is similar to their best selling Farpoint series, but designed specifically for women—and at 40L, perfect for one bag travel. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/31dx View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/osprey/fairview-40/ 0:43 - Fairview Details 1:24 - Material & Aesthetic 2:49 - Fairview vs Farpoint 4:12 - External Components 5:53 - Inside the Pack 7:23 - Durability and Testing 8:18 - Pros & Cons 8:45 - The Verdict Follow along with Rebecca and Nathan on their YouTube Channel "Always A Friday": https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWmBYPbsGaGDOo3UExFOCew The Fairview is Osprey’s new travel backpack designed specifically for women, and considering we’ve already spent over a year and a half testing out the Osprey Farpoint, we were really excited to get our hands on this one! There are a lot of similarities between the Farpoint and Fairview, and a lot of stuff mentioned here echoes what we said in our full review of the Farpoint. However, this is a women’s specific travel pack and a standalone product in its own right, so it deserves it’s own fully comprehensive review. The Osprey Fairview comes in three different capacities, a 40L, 55L and 70L. We are testing the 40L version, which is the only one that fits within carry-on specifications—AKA, the best way to travel. The Fairview is only available in one Small/Medium size, which is fine for anyone under 6 feet. If you are over 6 feet, it’s possible the Farpoint may be a better fit for you as it comes in a Medium/Large size. Ever since the Fairview came out, Osprey now refer to the Farpoint as the ‘men’s version’ (interesting as it was marketed towards men and women at the time). We’re really intrigued to see just how different it can be now that it’s actually designed specifically for a woman. To put it bluntly, the Fairview 40 is not the most chic, fashionable bag around, but that’s why it’s sold as a travel backpack and not a fashion statement. This has some great advantages though—you’ll feel fine laying this thing down on the floor, with no need to worry about scuffs and dirt. This is not a bag you have to feel precious about, it’s built for travel and we love that. The Osprey Fairview is still everything we like about the Farpoint—great for one bag travel, neat hideaway strap system and available worldwide—just designed specifically for women. They knew they had the right formula, so with a few small adjustments in the hip belt and shoulder straps they’ve created a bag that’s a great, comfortable carry for women.

Merino Wool Travel Clothing Guide | Part 1: Why Merino? | Merino Wool vs Cotton & More

You have eight favorite shirts, but only have room for four. You may not know when and where you’ll be able to do laundry on your journey—and that’s the fun & spontaneity of travel! Do you bring more clothes to last longer between washes or less and just say screw it? If you’re hitting up snowy mountains and balmy beaches in one trip, do you try to pack clothes for all seasons and end up with a huge, overweight bag? Well, Merino wool can solve a lot of your packing problems. It is one of the best travel fabrics out there, straight up. Packing one Merino tee is like the equivalent of packing five cotton tees when it comes to freshness. It will keep you cool in the heat, warm in the cold, you don’t have to wash it every time you wear it and we almost guarantee it will become your favorite shirt—so you’ll only need a few. It’s going to cost you a pretty penny for the better brands, but the benefits of the material are worth it… if you take care of it correctly. The bottom line of whether or not it’s worth the extra dough is completely up to you. But if you’re a serious minimalist traveler that dislikes frequent trips to the laundromat—Merino will help you travel lighter & faster. 🎶 Tonez&Re-C - Kyoto PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS VIDEO SERIES Buff USA Merino Wool Buff View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/agky View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/buff-usa/wool-buff/ Darn Tough Merino Wool No-Show Socks View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/4sbq View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/darn-tough/merino-wool-no-show-socks/ Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/y5kx Eucalan Fine Fabric Wash View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/cqpb Granger's Merino Wool Wash View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/rpyw Household Essentials CedarFresh Clothes Protector View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/rx0w HumanGear GoToob+ View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/mt55 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/humangear/gotoob-plus/ Icebreaker Merino Anatomica Tank View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/kdxv Kookaburra Wash View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/b1cr Lush Shampoo Bar View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/6meo View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/lush/shampoo-bar/ Outlier Ultrafine Merino Wool T-Shirt View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/7v5d View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/outlier/ultrafine-merino-t-shirt/ Unbound Merino T-Shirt View Details & Buy: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/unbound-merino/crew-neck-t-shirt/ View our Full Review: http://packha.kr/xyf3 Western Rise DryWeight Merino Henley View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/ygv7 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/western-rise/dryweight-merino-henley/ Western Rise Strongcore Merino Pocket Tee View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/q7t2 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/western-rise/strongcore-merino-pocket-tee/ Wool & Prince Button Down Shirts View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/ftnx Woolly Ultralight V-Neck View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/h1v0 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/woolly/ultralight-v-neck/ Woolx The Dailys Boxer Briefs View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/ra05 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/woolx/the-dailys-boxer-briefs/ CONNECT WITH US Sign Up for our Newsletter: https://packhacker.com/newsletter Subscribe to Pack Hacker on YouTube: http://packha.kr/youtube Follow Pack Hacker on Instagram: http://packha.kr/instagram Like Pack Hacker on Facebook: http://packha.kr/facebook Follow Pack Hacker on Twitter: http://packha.kr/twitter Follow Pack Hacker on Pinterest: http://packha.kr/pinterest Follow Pack Hacker on LinkedIn: http://packha.kr/linkedin TERMS Pack Hacker utilizes affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of our product links, Pack Hacker will receive a small commission at no cost to you.

Best travel jacket? The Patagonia Nano Puff review
 
03:43
A deceptively light jacket that keeps you super warm for the weight that it is—the Patagonia Nano Puff stows away easily when not in use—ultralight. View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/fa72 Women's version: http://packha.kr/jrmq View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/patagonia/nano-puff/ What's the best travel jacket? The Patagonia Nano Puff review—lightweight, warm, and compressible. This nylon jacket from Patagonia is one of the lightest, smallest, and warmest we've been able to find. It compresses down very small, and easily keeps your loadout minimal while traveling. Not using it in a warmer country? Easy. Just stash it at the bottom of your bag and forget about it. Or, use it as a pillow in dire times.

Osprey Farpoint 40 Backpack Review - 1 Year Test | Popular Travel Pack | Women’s & Men’s Perspective

The Osprey Farpoint is a backpack built to travel. A good choice for the digital nomad and a trusted companion on an extended journey around the world.

Being highly reviewed and widely available to try before you buy at stores is as good a reason as any to try this pack, but the Osprey Farpoint is so much more. After testing it for just over a year, we like to think we know it quite well! The Farpoint comes in four different sizes, a 40L, 55L, 70L and finally a whopping 80L! The bag we tested is the 40L (both the S/M and M/L models). It’s the only one that fits within carry-on specifications. Since we’re all about traveling as lightly as possible, this bag made the most sense. If you’re looking at the larger sizes, do stick around as most of what we’ll be covering will be applicable for them as well, but we recommend the carry on 40L size as we think it’s the slickest way to travel. Overall, the Osprey Farpoint is a travel backpack, and that’s exactly what it does best. Perfect for the digital nomad that moves onto a new country every week or month. We can attest to its reliability. It’s become a bag we can trust, even after a year of heavy use. It’s highly reviewed on the web because simply put, it’s a great bag, one you can travel the world with.

The Roost 2.0 vs. Nexstand K2: Ergonomic Portable Laptop Stand Showdown

We took a look at two of the best travel laptop stands—Roost 2.0 and Nexstand K2. Perfect for digital nomads who are tired of hunching over their laptops. Buy The Roost Laptop Stand 2.0: http://packha.kr/wd4b | Buy the Nexstand K2 Laptop Stand: http://packha.kr/d5qt View Our Full Comparison: https://packhacker.com/blog/gear-comparisons/laptop-stand-showdown-the-roost-2-0-vs-the-nextstand-k2/ Anyone who sits in front of a laptop all day—like we often do—should really look into getting a laptop stand. They make a huge difference in your posture, meaning less back pain and more productivity as you sit at your desk. Here, we compare the Roost Laptop Stand and the Nexstand Laptop Stand. These two travel laptop stands are great if you're on the road frequently and work quite a bit. The catch is that in order to use a laptop stand properly, you do need a mouse and keyboard. Essentially what you’re doing is turning your laptop into a desktop computer. This does of course limit portability—you are adding in three additional components—but it may be worth it for those of us who spend a lot of time on our laptops.

Humangear GoToob+ Review | GoToob vs GoToob Plus | TSA-Approved Carry-On Travel Liquid Containers
 
09:21
The GoToob+ is a TSA-approved liquid container from Humangear for carry-on travel with liquids. In this review, we also cover the original GoToob vs the GoToob plus. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/mt55 View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/humangear/gotoob-plus/ 0:35 - Material & Aesthetic 2:32 - GoToob vs GoToob+ (GoToob Plus) 5:12 - Durability & Testing 7:32 - Pros & Cons 8:18 - The Verdict In this review, we are checking out the GoToob+ liquid travel containers from HumanGear. For the Pack Hacker veterans out there, you’ll probably remember our old review of the original GoToobs—this is the next iteration, and they’ve made some nice improvements on their original model. Let’s check it out. One thing you’ll notice right off the bat is that the GoToob+ comes in a bunch of different sizes and colors. There’s kind of a ridiculous amount of colors, actually—so if you’re really into customizing your toiletries or you want to match these to your packing cubes, you’re in luck. While you can organize your liquids by color, we really like using the label system that HumanGear has put on these. Organizing by color sounds great until you’re up at 4 AM, getting ready to catch your 6:00AM flight. “Okay, the red one is face wash. Or wait… was it hand lotion?” The GoToob+ also come in a variety of sizes. There’s small, medium and large (1.7, 2.5, and 3.4 ounces, respectively). We’ve mainly been testing the 3.4 ounce size as that is the maximum amount of liquid you can carry on a flight. We’re into one bag travel here—checking bags is literally the worst—so we’re going to stay away from the larger, 6 oz size. This could be a useful size for camping or something, but we haven’t personally found much use for it. Maybe you could fill it with pancake batter and make some cool pancake designs? And if you are someone who likes having tubes of pancake batter on hand, you’re in luck because these are all made of FDA approved, food-safe silicone. So you actually can put food products in there… If that’s your thing. The GoToob+ is a nice upgrade from the original GoToob, but still shares many similarities. Major upgrades include the use of food-grade silicone, a new LoopLock™ system, and a nicer labeling system. While many users have reported durability problems with the caps, we’ve found that as long as you’re somewhat careful you should be okay. At the end of the day, these containers do a great job of holding liquids and preventing leaks—pretty much everything you want out of a TSA-approved liquid container!

We thought it was only natural to test out the Eagle Creek Global Companion to see if it really holds up to its “global companion” expectations. We’ve been really happy with the amount of things we were able to fit into this pack. With numerous pockets and smart features, the pack has continued to be a great companion while trekking across the U.S. and more. With ample room, smart features, and some tactical organization, this pack has a lot of awesome things going on. We’ve only managed to find a couple gripes surrounding the harness system—specifically the non-removable hip belt—we don’t have a lot more to complain about. You truly can fit so much into this pack and at the same time, be able to use it as a carry-on item when flying from place to place. The Eagle Creek Global Companion truly is a great global companion.

Matador NanoDry Shower & Trek Towel Review | Folding Quick Dry Towel Ideal For Travel, Small & Large
 
07:05
The Matador NanoDry Towels are super lightweight. The silicone case is unique, though not quite as compressible as other towel cases on the market. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/fi7b View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/matador/nanodry-towel/ 0:35 - Material & Aesthetic 2:03 - Benefits & Features 4:35 - Durability & Testing 5:30 - Pros & Cons 6:03 - The Verdict Matador promote these towels as being ultralight, super-absorbent and quick drying. They also claim that they stay fresh for a longer period of time due to a special “gold-coat antimicrobial coating”. Needless to say, all of these features really piqued our interest—but they had us at “gold-coat antimicrobial coating.” First off, these towels immediately stand out from other towels on the market because of the original design of the carrying case. Rather than a ripstop nylon or traditional mesh bag—which is common with most travel towels—Matador has opted for a silicone case. The cases have air holes on all sides, except one side which is completely open, allowing you to insert and pull out the towel. We’re always fans of low key branding, so we were happy to see some subtle, minimalistic branding on these things. It’s just enough to see that it’s Matador without being too ‘in your face’ about it. Overall, the Matador NanoDry towels offer a pretty unique travel towel experience—wait, did we really just say “towel experience”...? The silicone case isn’t something we’ve seen with many other towels on the market, and if you can look past it not being as compressible as other towels—and the weak snap loop button—this may be a great ultralight option for your next travel towel.

These towels are quick drying and lightweight. Folding them into the silicone case is a little tricky at first, but overall, they’re a close-to ideal towel for travel.

Cotopaxi Allpa Review | 35L Carry On Travel Backpack | One Bag Llama Pack 🐐
 
15:29
The Cotopaxi Allpa 35L Travel Pack is a great all-around bag that is smartly designed for carry-on compliance and can suit both urban and outdoorsy travelers alike. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/apvp View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/cotopaxi/allpa-35l-travel-pack/ 1:09 - Material & Aesthetic 3:40 - External Components 7:44 - Inside the Pack 13:04 - Durability & Testing 13:28 - Pros & Cons 14:15 - The Verdict Cotopaxi is the name of an active stratovolcano in the Andes Mountains, in Ecuador. It’s also the name of a company that manufactures outdoor gear and is trying to do some good in the world. We’ll let you guess which one this review is about. Founded in 2014 as a Certified B-Corp, Cotopaxi donates 2% of their revenue to help alleviate poverty. They also partner with “organizations like International Rescue Committee, Educate Girls, and Proximity Designs to provide health, education, and livelihoods in developing countries.” They do great work and make great products, one of which is the Allpa 35L Travel Pack. The Allpa is a 35-liter, carry-on compliant pack possessing many great features and design elements. Weighing 3lb 7oz (1560g) and measuring 20 x 12 x 8in (51 x 30 x 20cm), it’s on the heavier side of things compared to other bags with the same capacity—though it isn’t egregiously hefty. Much of the weight comes from the sturdy materials Cotopaxi chooses to use: TPU-coated 1000D polyester makes up the front of the pack while 1680D ballistic nylon comprises the side, top, and bottom paneling. This combination gives the Allpa a toughness that’s hard to beat. Overall, the Cotopaxi Allpa 35L Travel Pack is pleasantly hard to characterize. It can function as both a hiking pack, a work bag, or a travel pack. After our tests, we feel that it fits the travel pack role best. With it’s carry-on compliance, refined design and ample space, the Allpa is a great choice for anyone looking for a bag suited for a long weekend or a shorter vacation. While it may not be well received by taller users, if you find it comfortable to wear you won’t be disappointed.

Merino Wool Travel Clothing Guide | Part 3: How To Care For | Washing | Deter Bugs & Pests

0:32 - Care Info 1:26 - How To Wash 3:13 - Soap for Merino Wool 5:46 - Protecting Your Merino Wool VIDEOS IN THE “MERINO WOOL TRAVEL CLOTHING GUIDE” Part 1 (Intro – Why Merino Wool?): https://youtu.be/ZoUs7ar3LD0 Part 2 (Merino Products): https://youtu.be/tRmRK7PiGps Part 3 (Caring for Merino Wool): https://youtu.be/Df4isVNO0Y0 (you are here) We’re constantly updating the written portion of this guide as new merino wool products are released and the travel landscape changes: https://packhacker.com/guide/merino-wool-travel-clothing/ Packing for a trip can be such a chore and requires some tough decisions. You have eight favorite shirts, but only have room for four. You may not know when and where you’ll be able to do laundry on your journey—and that’s the fun & spontaneity of travel! Do you bring more clothes to last longer between washes or less and just say screw it? If you’re hitting up snowy mountains and balmy beaches in one trip, do you try to pack clothes for all seasons and end up with a huge, overweight bag? Well, Merino wool can solve a lot of your packing problems. It is one of the best travel fabrics out there, straight up. Packing one Merino tee is like the equivalent of packing five cotton tees when it comes to freshness. It will keep you cool in the heat, warm in the cold, you don’t have to wash it every time you wear it and we almost guarantee it will become your favorite shirt—so you’ll only need a few. It’s going to cost you a pretty penny for the better brands, but the benefits of the material are worth it… if you take care of it correctly. The bottom line of whether or not it’s worth the extra dough is completely up to you. But if you’re a serious minimalist traveler that dislikes frequent trips to the laundromat—Merino will help you travel lighter & faster. 🎶 Tonez&Re-C - Kyoto PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS VIDEO SERIES Buff USA Merino Wool Buff View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/agky View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/buff-usa/wool-buff/ Darn Tough Merino Wool No-Show Socks View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/4sbq View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/darn-tough/merino-wool-no-show-socks/ Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/y5kx Eucalan Fine Fabric Wash View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/cqpb Granger's Merino Wool Wash View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/rpyw Household Essentials CedarFresh Clothes Protector View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/rx0w HumanGear GoToob+ View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/mt55 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/humangear/gotoob-plus/ Icebreaker Merino Anatomica Tank View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/kdxv Kookaburra Wash View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/b1cr Lush Shampoo Bar View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/6meo View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/lush/shampoo-bar/ Outlier Ultrafine Merino Wool T-Shirt View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/7v5d View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/outlier/ultrafine-merino-t-shirt/ Unbound Merino T-Shirt View Details & Buy: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/unbound-merino/crew-neck-t-shirt/ View our Full Review: http://packha.kr/xyf3 Western Rise DryWeight Merino Henley View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/ygv7 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/western-rise/dryweight-merino-henley/ Western Rise Strongcore Merino Pocket Tee View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/q7t2 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/western-rise/strongcore-merino-pocket-tee/ Wool & Prince Button Down Shirts View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/ftnx Woolly Ultralight V-Neck View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/h1v0 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/woolly/ultralight-v-neck/ Woolx The Dailys Boxer Briefs View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/ra05 View our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/woolx/the-dailys-boxer-briefs/ CONNECT WITH US Sign Up for our Newsletter: https://packhacker.com/newsletter Subscribe to Pack Hacker on YouTube: http://packha.kr/youtube Follow Pack Hacker on Instagram: http://packha.kr/instagram Like Pack Hacker on Facebook: http://packha.kr/facebook Follow Pack Hacker on Twitter: http://packha.kr/twitter Follow Pack Hacker on Pinterest: http://packha.kr/pinterest Follow Pack Hacker on LinkedIn: http://packha.kr/linkedin TERMS Pack Hacker utilizes affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of our product links, Pack Hacker will receive a small commission at no cost to you.

Best Minimalist Barefoot Footwear for Travel? Elemental Earth Runners Sandals Review
 
03:04
A minimalistic sandal that sticks to your feet well, you can run in them—the Earth Runners Elemental Sandals are a good compact footwear option for travel. View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/dlox View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/earth-runners/elemental-sandals/ There’s always been something incredibly freeing about going barefoot. Perhaps because it reminds us of the beach, or being a kid, or simply being off the clock. Whatever it is, we fully embraced it with the Elemental Earth Runners. The Elemental Earth Runners minimalist sandals are the thinnest version that they offer. We figure if you're going to forego shoes, why not go with the most minimal footwear possible? These are durable, hold up great, and basically stick to your feet & don't slap around like other flip flops do making them a great pair of barefoot sandals. It's important to note these can also be used as running sandals.

Patagonia Micro Puff Review (Hoody) | Compressible, Lightweight, Ultralight, Travel Jacket
 
06:34
The Patagonia Micro Puff is an ultralight jacket that is incredibly packable and has one of the best warmth to weight ratios we’ve seen. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/a84q 0:38 - Material & Aesthetic 1:22 - Components & Features 3:49 - Durability & Testing 5:00 - Pros & Cons 5:33 - The Verdict View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/patagonia/micro-puff/ Tape for fixing rips: https://packha.kr/pynm A while back, we put the popular Patagonia Nano Puff® jacket through the ringer. Despite it being a bit delicate and very hoodless, we loved that it was lightweight, warm and came with a great warranty from a reputable brand. Patagonia has since stepped up its game by adding a hooded version of the Nano and, more recently, launching the Micro Puff®—an even lighter synthetic down jacket. Overall, if you’re looking for a dependable mid-layer or a lightweight jacket for mid-range temperatures, the Patagonia Micro Puff is a solid choice from a reliable brand. It weighs less and packs better the Nano Puff, but won’t keep you as warm in colder temps. Bottom line, if you’ve already got the Nano, we don’t really see any immediate need to “upgrade” to the Micro Puff. If you’re comparing the two, you’ll want to consider your intended usage climate and figure out if a couple ounces fewer is worth the slight loss in warmth.

Boundary Supply Errant Pack Review | 24L Everyday Backpack For Tech & Travel
 
14:03
With plenty of smart organization, the Boundary Supply Errant Pack is versatile, durable, and offers a great bang for your buck. At 24L, it’s a great everyday backpack for tech and travel too! View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/boundary-supply/the-errant-pack/ 0:31 - Material & Aesthetic 3:26 - External Components 7:01 - Inside the Pack 12:10 - Durability & Testing 12:57 - Pros & Cons 13:25 - The Verdict In this review, we’re going to be taking a look at the Boundary Supply Errant—a 24 liter backpack that boasts some great functionality in a slick and minimal form factor. According to Google, “errant” has two definitions. The first is “traveling in search of adventure,” and the second is “erring or straying from the proper course or standards.” We think both of these definitions fit the Errant backpack quite well, depending on what aspects of the bag you’re talking about. On one hand, it’s designed for minimal one bag travel. On the other hand, it does stray a bit from the norm and what we’ve seen on other packs. We’ve been really pleased with some of these unique features, while some have left us a bit disappointed. We normally don't bring up price with bags, because we're always happy to pay for quality. But there’s no getting around it—the Boundary Supply Errant is an incredible value for what's offered. Overall, this is a solid pack that looks great and is a joy to use, especially if you're the type of person that likes to geek out about about little details and organization on packs. If you can look past the top access being a bit slow and you don't feel strongly about needing a sternum strap, the Errant is a great option to be used as a daily driver or for minimal travel as a one-bag travel backpack.

The Tom Bihn Synapse 25 offers a ton of internal organization and innovative thinking that puts it in a league of its own, though, we do have a couple gripes with the main compartment. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/npxq View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/tom-bihn/synapse-25/ 0:35 - Material & Aesthetic 3:47 - External Components 5:47 - Inside the Pack 11:18 - Durability & Testing 11:51 - Pros & Cons 12:23 - The Verdict The Tom Bihn Synapse 25 is a travel pack that consists of a classic design that has lasted through the ages plus a whole bunch of innovative thinking. It’s made by a reputable brand that comes highly recommended from friends and folks in the backpack space, so we’ve been excited to get our hands on this particular pack and give it a good test run. At the time of this review, the Synapse is available in two sizes—the original 19-liter version and the 25-liter version that we’ve been testing. Overall, there are a lot of similarities between the two bags, but we're going to be more focused on the 25-liter version for this review. Tom Bihn puts a ton of care, effort, and detail into the decisions they make when creating packs, and the Synapse 25 is no exception. They've continuously made minor improvements over the years that add up to huge gains that you can really feel when you're using the bag. Although we have a couple gripes within the main compartment and don't love the look of the pack, the overall benefits greatly outshine these gripes. We think this system could work perfectly for you with the right gear and a bit of strategic planning.

Great soap for travel | Lush Shampoo Bar review

A tiny bar of soap & shampoo that lasts much longer than typical liquid soaps, the LUSH Shampoo Bar proves to be a great TSA-approved option for travel. View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/6meo View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/lush/shampoo-bar/ The Lush Shampoo Bar is a great bar of soap for travelers. The scent displayed in the video is called "Soak and Float"—a woodsy, clean smell—there are a bunch of other scents available as well. It lasts quite a long time—sometimes up to 6 months with regular use.

The Peak Design Travel Backpack is nothing short of genius. The unique features, innovative design and quality materials easily make it one of the best bags we’ve ever tested.

If you’ve been following us or you’re into backpacks, photography, or travel—you’ve probably heard of Peak Design. These guys have been absolutely killing it, making some of the most unique and innovative designs the backpack and photography world have ever seen. We’ve been testing this thing out for three weeks and it’s seen use across multiple US states and a few flights. Much like their other gear, our first impression is that this bag has a lot of smart, innovative thinking, and it most definitely lives up to the hype. The Peak Design Travel Backpack is a well-executed travel bag from a company with an excellent track-record of bringing innovative and unique designs to the backpack world. This is a bag that can easily handle one bag travel, photography, or digital nomading with ease—and it will be a joy to use for any of those activities. We have a couple small gripes—mainly the zipper choice, sternum strap, and side handles—but all of the amazing, innovative thinking that has gone into this bag vastly outweigh the few minor downsides. A winner, for sure.

REI Ruckpack 40 Review | One Bag Travel Backpack (Men’s & Women’s Version)
 
15:08
If you’re looking for a highly functional travel pack that carries well and looks great, you can’t go wrong with the REI Ruckpack 40. We particularly like all the hidden features, but wish the laptop compartment had a bit more structure. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/nt63 View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/rei/ruckpack-40/ In this review, we’re going to be checking out the Ruckpack 40 from REI—a one bag travel pack that offers a minimalistic form with some big functionality. And unlike most of the packs we test, we’re actually going to be discussing two versions of this one—because it comes in a men’s and women’s version. If you’ve never heard of REI—maybe you’ve been living under a rock or deep in the jungle for the past couple decades—you should know that they’re a pretty freakin’ cool company. They’re an outdoor co-op that sells just about everything you could ever need for outdoor activities plus a whole lot more, including urban travel gear. They also donate a boatload of money to conservation and work pretty hard to achieve ethical and environmental excellence in their business. And while they sell gear from a variety of companies, they also make their own stuff. Their own gear is mainly known for being budget-friendly and functional—and no surprise, the Ruckpack 40 fits that description perfectly. It stays true to REI’s technical focus, but a lot of things have been optimized specifically for urban travel. (Which is right up our alley…) The REI Ruckpack 40 offers a solid carry with some great organization. The aesthetic is minimal and there are a bunch of hidden features on the outside that tuck away when not in use, providing a great blend of form and function. And although we do have a few nitpicks—mainly, the laptop compartment and non-hideable hip belt—there aren’t many glaring cons with this bag. We also like that REI has gone ahead and made a men’s and women’s version of this pack—it really helps optimize the carrying experience for any body type. 0:40 - Material & Aesthetic 2:20 - External Components 8:24 - Inside the Pack 12:43 - Durability & Testing 13:19 - Pros & Cons 13:59 - The Verdict RELATED BACKPACK VIDEOS Mission Workshop Radian Review: https://youtu.be/TXDEp8CHnLM Aer Travel Pack 2 Review: https://youtu.be/P88908RZJkM Heimplanet Monolith Weekender Review: https://youtu.be/M5CBIABudrE Peak Design Travel Backpack Review: https://youtu.be/fcAKuHQ93XU Tortuga Setout 45L Review: https://youtu.be/it5uZMDop6k View more backpack reviews on our website: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/category/backpacks/ SHOW NOTES: In this video, Tom Wahlin of Pack Hacker reviews the men’s and women’s version of the REI Ruckpack 40, a great one bag travel backpack.

Unbound Merino T-Shirt Review | Merino Wool Shirt for Minimal Travel
 
04:34
Unbound Merino Wool T-Shirts are super soft, comfortable, and can go a while without a wash. We have found they do require a little extra care, however. View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/xyf3 View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/unbound-merino/crew-neck-t-shirt/ Planning an excursion but feel as though you’re overpacking? Try the Unbound Merino Wool T-Shirt. One of these can be worn for weeks on end. Merino wool is the finest and softest wool in the world. Usually reserved for high-performance activewear, Unbound has taken the fabric and created a basic but stylish t-shirt for everyday wear that still holds all the benefits Merino Wool has to offer. We've found these shirts to have pretty great elasticity allowing them to stretch with wear but always returning to its original shape. After a wash, you may notice that the crew necks become a little tighter, but after a couple wears, they go back to their original form. You won't have this problem, with the V-Neck version though. We thoroughly tested the grey Crew Neck. During the first wear, it was a little bit itchy. Like, an infinitesimal bit itchy. Almost not noticeable. Not even sure why we’re mentioning it. The ends of the sleeves are fitted which is a great look, even more so if you’re a fan of lifting heavy objects and putting them back down. We've found the sizing is slightly off, with the small being too small and the medium a little too big. Another issue we've come across is seeing a hole form in the shirt after only 15 wears. Maybe this was a strike of bad luck, but regardless, we don't view it as a great omen that something like this developed so quickly.

Awesome Merino Wool Tee Shirt for Travel: Outlier Ultrafine Merino T-Shirt Review
 
05:40
A premium tee with a price tag to match, the Outlier Ultrafine Merino T-Shirt is a great merino wool t-shirt for long-term, minimalist travelers. View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/7v5d View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/outlier/ultrafine-merino-t-shirt/ The Outlier Ultrafine Merino T-Shirt is basically the tank of shirts. A bit on the expensive side, but worth the cost—you'll hardly ever need to wash it, and it lasts quite a long time. Upon the first inspection of the shirt, you’ll notice an extremely soft feel and a thicker fabric than you’re used to. The Mackenzie 17.5, 195gsm Merino Jersey Wool is pleasantly comfortable and soft upon the first try on. You’ll hardly ever have to wash this shirt, and it almost seems to clean itself when hung in fresh air for a while. Wool is nature’s antimicrobial fabric that doesn’t hold a smell. Be careful when caring and washing this shirt. We recommend washing by hand, or putting the shirt into the washer at a cold and more delicate setting. If you’re OK forking out a decent chunk of change for a T-Shirt, you certainly won’t regret it once you’re wearing the Outlier Ultrafine Merino T-Shirt.

GORUCK GR1 Review | Durable 26L Military Inspired Backpack
 
13:01
The GORUCK GR1 is a medium-sized travel pack that can handle just about anything you might want to throw at it. And while we do love it, the heavy weight and high price can be hard to swallow. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/s1dy View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/goruck/gr1/ GORUCK Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtl3UnV2iGGImPYsWWp4EFn6EaSFfc1Pl 0:49 - Material & Aesthetic 2:45 - External Components 5:37 - Inside the Pack 10:13 - Durability & Testing 11:36 - Pros & Cons 12:04 - The Verdict The GR1 is the smallest sibling in the GORUCK backpack family, and kind of blurs the line between travel backpack and daypack. At 26 liters, we think it’s a pretty great option for a weekend bag, although some super-minimalists could probably use it as a one bag travel pack. It offers a lot of the things we have come to know and love from the GR2 and GR3, and overall we’ve really enjoyed testing this thing out. For those who might be unaware, GORUCK is a backpack brand with a pretty interesting history. The company was started by a former Green Beret and they have some pretty extensive military roots (which you can kind of tell just by looking at the bags). They also lead “rucking” events all across the US, where people train by running up mountains while carrying shockingly heavy weights in their backpack. Yeah, seriously. While we have yet to get involved in these rucking events—we tend to stick to our coffee shops and laptops—we’re pretty sure that any bag capable of hauling hundreds of pounds up mountains on a regular basis is going to be a good option for long-term travel. The GR1 is a solid, tactical, tanky pack that should hold up to anything you might be able to throw at it. It doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles, and the design is pretty standard—but that's the beauty of it. It's a solid pack backed by a great brand that will stay by your side for years to come. That being said, it could be on the heavy side for any ultralight travelers out there and the high price point might be a deterrent for some.

View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/agky View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/buff-usa/wool-buff/ When you travel, every item you decide to carry has to be truly functional.

Staying warm while Traveling can be a challenge, especially if you're trying to go ultralight and not pack many items. The Wool Buff by Buff USA provides a good option that keeps you warm when needed and easily disappears into your pack or luggage when not in use. The Buff serves many functions and the company has a demo video of the different ways you can use it here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSvRm4CHmvE). You can use it as a scarf, face mask or beanie to keep warm in cold climates. It also works as a great hair headband in the heat. Or if you want to wear it like a ninja mask or a pirate bandana, you can totally do that too. No judgment here.

Thule Subterra 34L Review | 1 Bag Travel Backpack (Also Works as a Daypack)

From crossover duffel bags and hydration packs to camera bags and, of course, travel backpacks—Thule has you covered. Or do they? Can a company that started off making roof racks transition to making great travel backpacks? We decided to investigate. We’ll be testing the Thule Subterra Travel Backpack 34L from their Subterra range—described by Thule as “Stylish, versatile and built to last, the Thule Subterra collection offers luggage, backpacks, laptop bags and sleeves that help you put together a great look for your travels.” The Subterra 34L is a dual purpose pack that can function as a travel bag or everyday backpack. We’re curious to see if they can pull this off. The Thule Subterra 34L is a great looking pack that works well as a daypack or travel bag. The usual pitfalls of a roll top bag are fixed by the two side access zips and the side pocket expands enough to fit a surprisingly large water bottle—and you can barely tell it’s even there when not in use! This is a pack that’ll have you covered on a weekend city break or meeting up with a business partner at a coffee house, with enough additional features to hold and organize everything you may have with you.

We are thoroughly excited to say that we’re taking a look at the Aer Travel Pack 2 in this review. Several of our team members at Pack Hacker have been using their original Aer Travel Pack for some time now (and to great success), so needless to say, we’ve been looking forward to getting our hands on the second iteration of an already great travel pack. The Aer Travel Pack 2 picks up right where the Travel Pack 1 left off, containing pretty much everything we liked about the first pack, with (almost) nothing we didn’t like. Aer has clearly listened to their loyal customers on this one, providing many much-needed updates as well as a handful of additional features that we didn’t even know we needed. And while there are some cons to this bag, they are all incredibly minor. We have to say that the Aer Travel Pack 2 can easily be classified as one of the one bag travel pack “heavy-hitters,” and we are confident it will stand up to years of abuse.

Matador Daylite16 Review | Packable Daypack for One Bag Travel
 
07:56
The Matador Daylite16 is an ultralight, ultra-compressible daypack that can hold a laptop and more. It may just be the perfect companion to your larger travel bag. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/23xq View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/matador/daylite16-packable-daypack/ 0:25 - Material & Aesthetic 1:06 - Benefits 5:33 - Durability & Testing 6:40 - Pros & Cons 7:11 - The Verdict Have you ever been caught in the one bag dilemma? You’re leaving your hotel for the day and looking down at your virtually empty 35L travel pack, weighing the pros and cons between taking that monstrosity to the coffee shop or just grabbing a to-go bag from the restaurant downstairs… There must be a better way, right? In this review, we are checking out the Matador Daylite16—a compressible daypack that just might be the perfect companion for your one bag travel pack. It’s got a 16 liter capacity, yet you can toss it into a compression sack and throw it inside your larger pack. Hell, you could throw this thing in your jacket pocket if you want. The Matador is a slick looking pack that comes in two different colors—gray and indigo. We’ve been testing out the gray one, and while it does have a bit of that “outdoorsy” look, it’s got some clean, minimalistic lines that we really like. As far as materials go, the big player here is a 30D siliconized CORDURA® ripstop nylon. And if you’re not up to date on your fabric lingo, that just means it is a lightweight, strong fabric. If you take a close look at the fabric you’ll notice a hexagonal pattern—this is where the ripstop comes in. If the fabric gets ripped, those little hexagons will stop it from getting any bigger. Overall, the Matador Daylite16 is an ultralight, ultra-compressible daypack that is a perfect companion for your larger, one bag travel pack. Coming in at a solid 16L, this thing can hold a bunch of stuff—including a 15” laptop—and still pack down to the size of a tube of a muffin, while weighing in at only 4.1 ounces. Need we say more? No need to worry about lugging your large travel backpack around a new city or into a coffee shop—just fill up the Matador with a few essentials and get on with it!

Scrubba Wash Bag Review | How To Use And Wash Your Clothes While Traveling
 
10:12
Cleaning your clothes on the road is never fun, but we’ve been impressed with the packability, durability, and practicality of the Scrubba Wash Bag. Its load is limited, but the benefits over alternative washing methods are impressive. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/1vha View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/scrubba/wash-bag/ 0:40 - Material & Aesthetic 2:47 - Usage & Benefits 7:15 - Durability & Testing 8:26 - Pros & Cons 8:56 - The Verdict The Scrubba Wash Bag is an innovative piece of travel gear designed to give you “clean clothes anywhere,” and who doesn’t want that? Cleaning your clothes is something every long-term traveler in the world has to deal with, so a product that claims to make that easier is definitely worth checking out. In testing, we found that it does take a little while to master the washing process, but it’s straightforward and simple enough for anyone to get the hang of eventually. And we’re happy to report that the Scrubba Wash Bag does deliver on its promise of “clean clothes anywhere.” Washing your clothes is always a nuisance, regardless of how you do it. While it is a pain that the Scrubba can only wash a certain amount of clothes at one time, and it’s not perfect for bulkier items, we’ve been impressed with its packability, durability, and benefits over alternative washing methods. If you struggle to find a laundromat on the road or you’re tired of washing your clothes in a sink, the Scrubba Wash Bag is a simple and impressively practical solution.

Minaal Carry-on 2.0 Review | A Popular One Bag Travel Backpack for Digital Nomads & Remote Workers
 
15:46
The Minaal Carry-on 2.0 is a roomy, minimalist-styled backpack that has some great features and only a few minor faults. A solid option for one-bag travel. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/vmns View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/minaal/carry-on-2-0-bag/ 1:23 - Material & Aesthetic 2:45 - External Components 8:32 - Inside the Pack 12:33 - Durability & Testing 13:21 - The Verdict 13:52 - Pros & Cons This video review is featured on http://www.carryology.com/ During our constant search for the perfect one-bag travel setup, it was only a matter of time until we tested out some gear from Minaal—the company whose motto is “tools for efficient travel.” Seriously, you can’t get more on-brand than that. We consider ourselves experts in efficient travel, after all, so we had to take a look and see if their stuff really lives up to the motto. Two of our most experienced Pack Hacker team members have been testing out both the grey and black Minaal Carry-on 2.0. We’ve been testing the grey one for 8 months and the black one for 1.5 months—seeing as it came out… 1.5 months ago. We’re going to let you in on a little secret right off the bat—this pack has held up well and can hold its own among some of the best one-bag travel packs out there. At least in the first 8 months, it has definitely proven itself as a solid tool for efficient travel. It’s got a pretty clean look, as you can see. They’ve definitely got the minimalist look down. The branding is very subtle—just a few small, simple logos throughout the pack—and there’s not an overwhelming amount of straps or doo-dads on the outside of the pack. The straps it does have are actually fairly hard to see on the black version, which is nice—everything blends in pretty seamlessly. And even if this thing is fully packed, you’re not going to get that dreaded, mini-fridge-on-your-back look. It’s pretty slim and streamlined, overall. The Carry-on 2.0 has a capacity of about 35 liters. Why “about?” Why is it not a set-in-stone number? Well, the folks over at Minaal have some beef with this whole liter-capacity system—they don’t like to claim a certain capacity because there are really no set standards in the backpack world when it comes to these measurements. And honestly, they’re not wrong. It’s not terribly uncommon to find that a certain 30L backpack actually holds more than another 40L backpack made by a different brand. But we like numbers, so we’ll stick with the 35L measurement for congruency. To put it in simpler terms—like virtually all one-bag travel packs, this thing holds a lot of stuff and can still be used as a carry-on bag for pretty much all major airlines. The Carry-on 2.0 from Minaal is a stellar bag for one-bag travelers. It offers a tremendous amount of room, a good number of user-friendly pockets, plus a handful of other nice features. In grey or black, this pack looks great and carries well to boot. The overall durability is solid—this is a pack that should, in theory, hold up to years of usage. Minor issues include the water bottle holder, hideaway strap system, and rapid accumulation of dust on the fabric. But to be fair, the pros largely outweigh the cons. For one bag travelers, the Minaal Carry-on 2.0 is hard to beat.

Aer Flight Pack 2 Review | 21L Backpack For Urban Adventures & Airport Travel (Updated Version)
 
14:25
Delivering some much anticipated upgrades from the previous iteration, The Aer Flight Pack 2 is a durable, functional pack with lots of organization that’s great for short trips and urban adventures. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/p9bp View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/aer/flight-pack-2/ 0:30 - Material & Aesthetic 1:46 - External Components 6:39 - Inside the Pack 11:31 - Durability & Testing 12:45 - Pros & Cons 13:34 - The Verdict The first version of the Aer Flight Pack was an interesting concept that worked pretty well in practice. Not quite big enough to be a full backpack for longer travel, it made for a great weekend getaway pack and offered three modes of carry—briefcase, messenger and backpack. We were impressed with that bag, but we did have a few nitpicks—mainly, that the transitions between the three carry modes were a little clunky. In rolls the Flight Pack 2, which promises to improve in those couple areas where the first bag left us wanting more. We’ve been hoping for smoother transitions between the carry modes, better performance in briefcase and messenger mode, and an upgraded harness system. The Aer Flight Pack 2 is a great travel companion for short journeys and fits in well in an urban environment. The transitions between the three carry modes have been improved since the previous version, and briefcase mode is definitely a more comfortable carry in this iteration of the pack. We still think backpack mode is the best way to go, but the other two modes are there for you to use—unless you plan on making full use of the organization system. As always, this pack comes with the quality we expect from Aer—from materials to the design, this is a solid, well-thought out pack for short trips and urban adventures.

If you’re looking for a secure travel pack, the Pacsafe Venturesafe X40 Plus offers some great security features.We’ve enjoyed just about everything on this pack, but the laptop compartment did feel a bit “meh.” View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/3f4q View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/pacsafe/venturesafe-x40-plus/ 0:34 - Material & Aesthetic 2:41 - External Components 6:23 - Inside the Pack 11:45 - Durability & Testing 12:04 - Pros & Cons 12:32 - The Verdict In this review, we are taking a look at the Pacsafe Venturesafe X40 Plus. Yes, that is quite a mouthful, and yes—as the name implies, there is a big focus on safety, or more precisely, security. Pacsafe is a company that specializes in various anti-theft travel gear. From backpacks to wallets to roller luggage, they’re all about giving you some peace of mind while traveling—which we love to see. Any seasoned traveler knows that security is no joke when you’re out on your own—or even not on your own—and having some reassurance that no one is going to, say, swipe your bag as you start to doze off on the subway is a huge relief. The Venturesafe X40 Plus is Pacsafe’s carry-on compliant travel bag that, in addition to being a pretty great all-around backpack, boasts a whole lot of cool security features. We’ve been testing this thing out for about a month at the time of this review, and it’s seen action on trips from Detroit to Spain. Let’s check it out. If you’re looking for a secure travel pack, the Pacsafe Venturesafe X40 Plus offers some great features for exactly that. From the eXomesh® slash-proof material to the secure zippers, there is some really great thinking that went into this pack along with some solid materials. Even though we had some problems with the laptop compartment and hip belt, we still think this is a great choice for a travel backpack.

The front pockets are deep so you can keep a decent amount of gear close by when needed, and the high price tag is justified with the comfort & durability that the Outlier Slim Dungarees offer.

YNOT Deploy Review | Durable 15L Packable Daypack
 
08:26
The YNOT Deploy is a packable daypack that doesn’t feel packable (in a good way). Despite some problems with the straps and zips, this is a solid daily-use pack. View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/ynot/deploy/ 0:32 - Material & Aesthetic 2:36 - Components & Usage 5:51 - Durability & Testing 7:08 - Pros & Cons 7:46 - The Verdict The YNOT Deploy (pronounced “why not”) is a durable 15-liter packable day pack that is great for the road. The thing that really sets this pack apart from most of the other packable daypacks on the market is that it actually wears like a real backpack! And that is no small feat. Most packable daypacks opt for super thin, ultralight materials and the result is that it feels like you have more of a “sack” on your back than an actual backpack. For that reason among others, we’ve been excited to test out the YNOT Deploy to see if it really does feel—and function—like a regular backpack when in use. The YNOT Deploy is a simple, sleek packable daypack that's perfect for use as a daily driver to compliment your larger travel backpack or roller luggage when you're on the road. Although the compressibility is a tad larger than expected and we've had some nitpicks with the main zippers, the Deploy is a highly-functional bag with high-quality materials and expert craftsmanship. It’s a packable daypack that doesn’t feel packable—and that’s no small feat.

It truly is everything we wish the Homebase had been—it’s got a nice, tight design and we’re confident that the materials used will hold up for years to come. Plus, the expandable functionality makes this one of the most versatile bags we’ve tested to date. With only a few minor gripes about the hip belt and lack of water-resistant zips, we really think Tortuga has done a nice job with this pack and it is clear that each new release from Tortuga is getting better.

Matador Freefly16 Review | Packable Backpack For Travel (Updated “Advanced Series” Design)
 
09:09
We love using the compressible Matador Freefly16 for quick trips around town, but as functional as it is, the durability is seriously lacking. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/ncsr View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/matador/freefly16/ 0:34 - Material & Aesthetic 2:56 - External Components 5:53 - Inside the Pack 6:28 - Durability & Testing 7:26 - Pros & Cons 8:00 - The Verdict Our initial impression of the Freefly16 is that it feels like the next iteration of the Daylite16, even though Matador says they are mutually exclusive. It’s got a similar look, it has the same capacity, and it has some new and improved features. From an aesthetic perspective, the Freefly16 is offered in charcoal gray—which is basically black—and that’s it. In comparison, the Daylite16 was offered in indigo and a lighter gray color, but we have to say that the dark gray/black on the Freefly gives it a nice, polished look. In our now-classic Pack Hacker Instagram Aesthetic poll, 54% of our audience gave it the thumbs-up. Which tells us basically nothing—some people like it, some people don’t. We like the look pretty well, but we’ll leave it up to you. The Matador Freefly16 offers some great improvements compared to its predecessor, the Daylite16. Particularly, we think the shoulder straps, compression straps, and quick-grab pocket offer nice upgrades from what we’ve seen in the past. In general, we love the packability and form factor of Matador's products, but the low durability always leaves us wanting more—and the Freefly is no exception. From the splitting seams on the compression sack to the tiny zippers, we have our concerns. This is a bit more excusable on a packable daypack than a main piece of luggage, but these problems are not impossible to solve by any means. Although we do like the Freefly16 on the whole, we hope Matador considers upgrading these couple areas within the pack in their next iteration.

Osprey Daylite 13L Daypack Review | Lightweight, Practical & Small Unisex Backpack
 
08:28
If you’re looking for a go-to daypack from a trusted and reliable brand, you can’t go wrong with the Osprey Daylite. We’ve been impressed with its harness system, but the lack of a laptop compartment may be an issue for some. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/4d7n View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/osprey/daylite/ 0:30 - Material & Aesthetic 3:09 - External Components 5:31 - Inside the Pack 6:22 - Durability & Testing 7:04 - Pros & Cons 7:32 - The Verdict Osprey packs are available in stores all around the world, and they’re one of the biggest backpack manufacturers in the game. Having tested their Fairview 40, Porter 46, and Farpoint 40—which has seen over a year of use across 20 countries—we’re well-acquainted with them and we’ve been impressed with their quality gear at reasonable prices. In this review, we will be taking a look at the Osprey Daylite. A 13 liter daypack described as a “lightweight and versatile companion” that is “a modern classic in a compact package.” In just over a month of testing, the Osprey Daylite has seen frequent use in and around London. In regards to durability, there are a couple of small abrasion marks on the front of the pack, but they’re hardly noticeable. And while we don’t expect this bag to last a lifetime, the quality components and craftsmanship should ensure its durability for a good while. The Osprey Daylite may not be packable like the Matador DL16, or as durable as the Topo Designs Daypack, but it’s an incredibly practical bag that does its job well. The lack of a laptop sleeve may be a problem for some, but if you’re looking for a go-to daypack from a reliable brand at a good price, then the Osprey Daylite is a great buy.

Socks With A Lifetime Warranty | Darn Tough No-Show Socks Review | Best Travel Socks?
 
04:41
Darn Tough’s Merino wool socks are a great option for any dedicated traveler. Usable in various climates, these socks can last you a lifetime—we've tested the warranty. View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/4sbq View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/darn-tough/merino-wool-no-show-socks/ We think the Darn Tough Merino Wool No-Show Socks are some of the best out there for travel. You don't need to wash them often, and the durability is high. Plus, they've got a lifetime warranty that actually works (we've tested it). We’ve been testing out these Darn Tough Merino wool socks for a while now, and they definitely hold up to their namesake. They are pretty darn tough (HA HA HA). Anyways, We love Merino wool because of all its amazing properties, and these socks are just another testament to how awesome this fabric is. These things are super comfortable, and somehow they feel as cool as cotton socks in the summer and as warm as wool socks in the winter—despite them being a little thicker. A medium pair of No-Show socks come in at 1.8 ounces, as a note to all you ultralight travelers out there. They are really thick, but don’t let that deceive you—they’re very breathable. But keep it in mind if you have a pair of tight-fitting shoes, they might be a little snug. This thickness also provides a nice bit of cushion—great if you tend to do a lot of walking and require some extra support. These may not be the best looking socks around—we feel the pattern is a little loud—but they still have plenty to offer. And the important thing is, the ankle part is totally hidden with shoes on.

Vapur Eclipse Water Bottle Review | Ultra Compressible & Collapsible Water Bottle For Travel
 
07:16
The Vapur Eclipse is an ultra compressible water bottle that is optimized for travel. If you can get past some awkward drinking maneuvers and a lack of insulation, this just might be one of the best travel water bottles on the market. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/h9oo View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/vapur/eclipse-water-bottle/ 0:40 - Material & Aesthetic 1:25 - Functionality & Experience 5:06 - Durability & Testing 5:34 - Pros & Cons 6:10 - The Verdict The Vapur Eclipse Water Bottle is great for what it is—an ultra compressible water bottle that is optimized for travel. It just may be the water bottle of our dreams. Not that we dream about travel water bottles… That’d be weird. We definitely do not do that, just to be clear. We have, however, been testing this Vapur Eclipse Water Bottle for over a year, and we’ve been thoroughly enjoying it. So far, this bottle has held up with no leaks or functionality issues. It does have a lot of aesthetic dings and scratches, and the matte coating has pretty much been scraped entirely off. However, it's still working like a charm—even though it might not look the greatest. The Vapur Eclipse water bottle is great for what it is—a self-compressing, highly portable water bottle that you can use in a pinch. Although it doesn’t keep your water very cool and the filter obstructs the compressibility, we think these are minor cons compared to the amazing benefit of having a liter of water at your fingertips. Plus, it helps you save money and protect the environment by avoiding those single-use airport water bottles.

Designed to pair with the Tortuga Setout, the Setout Packable Daypack is durable and surprisingly backpack-like, while still lightweight and compressible. Ideal for day trips when you want to leave your main pack at the hotel or hostel.

It weighs less than a can of soda, and collapses into its own front pocket for easy storage in your carry on. We put the Setout Packable Daypack to the test to see how it fares on our day trips around the city. Right away we can see that the Setout Packable Daypack pairs nicely with the Setout, in terms of it’s aesthetics and function. It’s obviously smaller than the Setout and is a darker shade. But the shape and design—especially the position of the front pocket and logo—make it clear that they were designed to go together. We are really happy with the Setout Packable Daypack. In fact, we’ll go so far as to say that it’s our favorite pack from Tortuga to date! They really nailed the use case of a daypack and created the perfect blend of aesthetic and function. It’s durable, compresses small and light, and maintains the feeling of a full blown, “real” backpack. As long as you pad the gear inside for extra protection, this is really the ideal bag for taking out on mini-adventures during your travels.

Tortuga Homebase Travel Backpack Review (for Digital Nomads, Minimalist Packers, and One Baggers)
 
11:27
A sleek look, superior organization, and packing cube make the Tortuga Homebase Backpack a one-stop-shop for minimalist travelers and digital nomads. View Details & Buy: http://packha.kr/9aau View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/tortuga/homebase-backpack/ We’ve been lucky enough to test out the Tortuga Homebase Backpack for a month now. If you know its predecessor, the Tortuga Outbreaker—this bag is slimmer, more stylish, and has a bunch of improvements. Tortuga has catered this bag specifically for digital nomads, minimalist packers, and one baggers—so it is right up our alley. For some quick hits, here are our pros & cons: Pros: Lightweight, minimal, and looks nice. Great organization—you can tell a lot of thought went into this bag. Sailcloth and YKK zippers make this pack pretty water-resistant. Cons: Not the most durable pack we’ve seen. Packing cube is nice, but not fully optimized for the main compartment—it's a bit large compared to the rest of the main clamshell. The hideaway velcro pocket for straps is sort of cool, but we’d rather have more room in the pack.

Topo Designs Daypack Review | 20L Heritage Style Backpack Made In The USA
 
07:35
Despite a few minor nitpicks, the Topo Designs Daypack is a great heritage-style pack for buzzing around the city or taking on longer journeys as a daypack. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/nlir View Our Full Review: https://packhacker.com/travel-gear/topo-designs/daypack/ 0:31 - Material & Aesthetic 1:39 - External Components 4:04 - Inside the Pack 5:28 - Durability & Testing 5:57 - Pros & Cons 6:32 - The Verdict In this review we’re taking a look at the Topo Designs Daypack. It’s an outdoorsy looking, traditional-style backpack that has both feet firmly planted in the modern world, with its bright designs and fluorescent lining. We found this pack to be ideal for running errands around a city throughout the day, which is exactly what we did for two months in and around Detroit during testing. And while not designed specifically as a daypack for longer trips, it does pack flat—meaning it can be stored nicely in your larger backpack if you want bring it along on your extended travels. At the time of this review we’ve been testing the Topo Designs Daypack for about two months in our daily movements around Detroit. We can say with confidence that it’s really well put together and we don’t see it failing any time soon. The materials chosen by Topo are high quality and strong, plus there’s that reliable USA craftsmanship holding it all together. This as a solid little pack that you can rely on for daily use around the city or as a daypack to bring along on your next extended travel. Overall the Topo Designs Daypack is a great little pack that’s good for buzzing around the city or laying flat in a larger travel bag for day trips when you get to your destination. The materials chosen are durable, and the external and internal features come together well to create a good daypack experience.
