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 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!
Review of the CTB26 (Civic Transit Bag) codenamed Phoenix V2 which is a collaboration between Evergoods and Carryology. When I first saw this bag it seemed to check off all the boxes for what I look for in an ideal backpack and in this video I will be talking about how the bag lived up to my expectations.
Review of the Kargo Gear Senda 21L Backpack which is a durable everyday carry bag that has a useful organizational layout, comfortable harness system, and interesting aesthetic. If you are looking for something unique and made in the U.S.A. this may be a good option to consider.
Review of the updated Patagonia Mini MLC 26L which is a hybrid minimal travel / edc pack that can be used as a shoulder bag or backpack and offers a great organizational layout, a comfortable carry, and a versatile size. This bag manages to check off many of my must have features and has been one of my favorite bags of the year.
Review of the V.I.T.L. Cooling Backpack which is a modern tech backpack with some nice organizational options, plenty of space and an integrated back panel fan to help keep you cooler while you are on the go.
Review of the Sympl Studios Travel Backpack which offers a great build quality and weather resistance, a useful organizational layout, and plenty of space for one bag travel while staying carry on friendly.
Review of the Solgaard Lifepack Endeavor (with Closet) which is an intriguing edc / tech bag that can expand to work as a travel backpack. Although the closet system leaves a bit to be desired the bag is packed with features and may be a great option for anyone who is looking for one bag that can do it all.
