Pacsafe Vibe

Pack Lightly with Pacsafe Vibe 325 Econyl Anti-Theft Recycled Sling Pack

By Jill / December 20, 2019 /

When it comes to the essentials, you don’t always need a backpack to tote your stuff around. It might make sense to have one bag that’s flexible enough to fit a little or a lot, but if you don’t like carrying a big pack when you only have a few items, consider sizing down. I…

Tortuga Setout Backpack for Women

By Jill / November 29, 2019 /

Roll-aboard carry-on bags are extremely convenient. You can get them with soft sides or hard sides, you can get them the perfect size to be a legal carry-on, you don’t have to carry them but roll them alongside as you walk. And yet, I’ve recently grown weary of mine. That’s not to say it’s not…

Gregory Tribute backpack for international travel

By Amy / November 5, 2019 /

Sometimes, you simply need to be hands-free when you travel, and you can’t have a roller bag slowing you down. This is especially true when traveling through less developed countries with fewer escalators and elevators, and destinations with cobbled streets, train travel, or bus travel. When I want to leave my roller bag behind, I…

Filson rugged tote bag for fall travel

By Amy / October 1, 2019 /

I’m kind of a nut for tote bags. I love the versatility of a quality tote, as one is always along for the ride when I travel either by car or plane. For a tote bag to pass muster, it must be able to take a beating, has to zip up to keep my gear…

Eco-conscious travel: Camelbak Pivot tote bag and Pivot sling

By Amy / September 10, 2019 /

Yes, you know Camelbak for its hydration systems and water bottles, but this is just why their line of Repurposed bags and totes perfectly fits in with the brand message. Both the Pivot sling bag and Pivot tote are made with 70 percent recycled materials, or the equivalent of 25 plastic water bottles. You can…

Mammut Seon Transporter for weekend trips

By Amy / September 3, 2019 /

Known for their rugged climbing and adventuring gear, Mammut has delivered what I think may be the best commuter pack or carry-on travel backpack out there. The Seon Transporter could even work as your only pack for a short weekend away, but I’ve been using mine as a work station and entertainment station for air…

Keep Your Gear Dry with Aloha Collection Bags

By Jill / August 23, 2019 /

When you travel a lot, you end up trying out a lot of gear for the purpose of finding that one piece that’s just right. Your favorite piece may look good, or it may perform spectacularly, or it may just simply do its job better than many others. Or, it might do all of the…

Pelican Dayventure backpack cooler: ready-made for outdoor adventure

By Amy / August 20, 2019 /

This seems to be the summer of the soft-sided cooler…I’ve seen them everywhere. My favorite by far are the backpack designs, so that I can be hands-free to carry more gear to the lake, river, or campsite. I’ve found soft-sided coolers to be winning in the road trip department as well, as they’re easy to…
