In this video we will be taking a look at the Sitka Drifter Travel Pack which has been featured in a few videos with Jack Carr, former Navy Seal and Author of the Terminal List Series of books. After watching Jack’s walkthrough of the bag I was curious to try it out first hand to see what type of bag someone with Carr’s would use. We’ll see how it holds up against some of the other popular bags we’ve looked at!
Review of the brand new Tortuga 40L Travel Backpack which is the latest travel bag from the company behind the Outbreaker and Setout Travel Backpacks (some of the most comfortable we have reviewed on the channel). This bag had big shoes to fill and has a number of updates based on feedback that users provided to the company after traveling with their other bags and this video I will be talking through these updates and how this compares to other popular one bag travel options.
Review of the Goruck Bullet Ruck - Laptop which is a an updated version of a classic everyday carry bag. The bullet ruck has been a reliable and more compact alternative to the GR1, but lacked the dedicated and bombproof laptop compartment the GR1 has. With this new version of the Bullet Ruck, Goruck has added a laptop compartment and improved the back panel to provide more support and make it a very compelling alternative to the GR1.
Review of the Elite Survival Systems Pulse 24hr backpack which is a rugged everyday carry pack that offers the comfort, space, and organizational options to work well in any situation. If you are in the market for a go / bug out bag this may be a good one to check out!
Review of the Nomatic x Peter McKinnon 25L Camera Pack which is a smaller version of the original Travel Pack collaboration. Peter McKinnon’s bags have been aimed at providing the organization and protection that photographers need and the flexibility to work with a variety of gear setups. Since I have a pretty minimal camera setup, I was curious how it would work as more of a tech and edc backpack. In this video we’ll see how it ends up doing!
Quick look at my fall 2022 everyday carry (edc) which are the items that I carry in my pockets on most days. I am constantly trying out new items and experimenting to see how minimal I can get my setup and these are some of the items I have come back to the most as of late.
For my last video of the year I thought it would be a good time to share some channel updates, talk through some of my favorite backpacks / gear, and give a brief preview of some of the bags I will be taking a look at in the new year.
Review of the Arc’teryx Granville 16 Backpack which I have been curious to check out for a while. The bag has a minimalist aesthetic, highly weather-resistant materials, and holds an impressive amount for a 16L bag. If you need a sleek bag that can keep your stuff safe in the rain this may be a good one to check out!
Review of the CTB26 (Civic Transit Bag) codenamed Phoenix V2 which is a collaboration between Evergoods and Carryology.
