Houston, We Have Backpacks.
Can you imagine living out of a backpack for any length of time? Well, we are attempting to live out of ours for a year.
What kind of bag is right for us? What size, shape brand and price range is right? There are SO many options.
After a impromptu trip to REI over Easter when Eric’s parents were in town Eric found something we didn’t even know existed. A backpack that also has wheels and can be pulled like regular luggage.
For him is was love at first sight. Eric looked over the bag for like 20 min and just loved every feature. Along with the before mentioned convertible wheel/backpack feature the bag also has a daypack that attaches to the main bag. With all that said REI was having a 20% off sale so fate seemed to make the decision for us.
Moving on to me and what kind of bag I wanted. Well I really was pretty impressed with Eric’s find and a little jealous but I was afraid it was a little to big for me at 60L so I was still searching store websites and travel blogs for a bag that would work for me. Eric found it first, it’s the same brand but a different series of Osprey and has those same great features as Eric’s bag but smaller and lighter, score! I also managed to get 20% off.
Wish us luck while we test these babies out to see if they will be the bags we use.
