What's with the Bag? (6/27/17)


It was a sunny Tuesday morning, hot, humid, and everything Florida (tons of bugs) when Gavriela and I set off to explore Blue Springs State Park. We met up in the parking lot and showered ourselves in bug spray before venturing into the bush. Next was a nice mist of sunscreen. Why a mist you ask? Well it's all about applying the proper amount to protect your skin but also leave you with a tan...spoiler alert I failed. Luckily Gavriela was more than thrilled to carry all the necessities in her Topo Design bag to save the day. 

Mhm..

Ahhh...

After hiking for roughly an hour I asked Gavriela to give me her pack so she could have a rest from carrying all the nourishing gummy worms and water haha. I snagged the backpack and slid my left arm through the hole while I carried my camera in the other. I was immediately caught off guard by the comfortably-insulated straps. I've never used a travel pack that felt so soft on my skin. It was like laying that perfect wool sock you have in your closet right on top of your shoulder which is a giant step from the feeling of sandpaper we all usually get. I was trying to find the words to express how comfortable the strap was when I was abruptly interrupted by Gavriela exclaiming,  "You think one strap feels good, just wait until you get the other one on..man that's good."

We went back and forth all day taking turns wearing the pack like we just got our favorite childhood toy. We switched off putting the KLETTERSACK to the test, feeling out its durability, comfort, and water resistance. Gavriela and myself we're both amazed out how well the pack's functionality revealed itself in such a short period of time.

In just a few hours we both fell in love with the Tops Design KLETTERSACK for a lot of reason but here are a four key ones:

1. Comfort

The pack never felt too heavy and neither of us found ourselves constantly adjusting every ten minutes like you most often see with hikers and their backpacks..the struggle.

2. Durability- I was extremely please with the packs durability when under duress from  pressure, pulling, tugging, ripping etc.  Everything on the pack and in the pack is secured and sown tightly. I was very surprised at how well sealed it was.

3. Ease of use- The pack is extremely easy to use and adjust. No longer does one have to spend thirty minutes adjusting their straps back and forth to get them the equal length. Furthermore, the pack has a small but efficient set of pockets to utilize which provides endless variations for stuffing your pack. Remember that shirt of yours that the zipper always gets caught in when your trying to zip it up? Well no need to worry about the zippers on the KLETTERSACK. The zippers move flawlessly and I love it!

4. The Look

The KLETTERSACK is a perfect mixture between modern design and minimalistic living. The look is sleek, simple and bold. I absolutely love the color combinations in this particular KLETTERSACK and how well the bright yellows and reds compliment the dark blue base of the pack.  

The KLETERSACK is the best daypack for photographers...hands down.
