Andrew sent me a link to the kickstarter page of two guys trying to revolutionize backpack design.
I ordered one instantly. $189.93 USD delivered to Canada. (That’s the minimum package. They have other bundles with more accessories.)
Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.
It arrived in time for Christmas.
Quality is superb. These guys cut no corners. It includes a TSA lock. Classy touch.
VERY waterproof. VERY durable. … But heavier than I would like.
To save weight I’ll probably cut off the sternum strap as I rarely use it on my other packs.
I immediately went to cut off the duffel back handles (as backpack is my preferred carry) but they are integrated into the design of the shoulder straps.
By mistake they sent me two waist belts.
Nomatic has many other products. I’m assuming all their gear is great.
I got the 3-7 day Travel Pack. Their Backpack is optimized for 1-3 days.
Wirecutter recommends excellent competitors to this bag.
I’d love to be able to roll it through airports. Perhaps I’ll bring along a portable folding Luggage Cart on some trips.
This bag will replace my National Geographic Appalachian 20 Inch Upright Rolling Suitcase which does have wheels.
