Canadian Island Tested...Explorer Approved

We got back from our remote Ontario island wedding last night. We had a blast AND I got to test out the capacity, organization, comfort (briefly), and overall use of my pack in transporting my stuff.

Overall Score: A

I love all of the separate compartments of my pack that allow me to organize my stuff. This is HUGE for me and I was very satisfied. I also love that there are multiple ways to access the main compartment!! Finally, there are a lot of extra places in the outside of my pack to strap things onto, like a wet towel or a sleeping bag, not to mention a water bottle holder and other yet-to-be-determined items.

I definitely will need more practice with my pack before we leave-especially as far as loading it up and wearing it around for an extended period of time, but I can happily say that I'm impressed and excited about this pack. I am not longer nervous or worried if it's "the one". I'm looking forward to exploring the world with this backpack!!!



  1. I love my rucksack! One of the best investments I ever made! When we went to Namibia in 2005 I was impressed with how nicely my sleeping bag fitted on top.

    This trip we are restricted to 15kg! So I've bought a zip bag with wheels (not expensive). It's the first time I've used such luggage and it will be interesting to see how it compares. I have a feeling my trusty rucksack might win the day.

    As you say it allows you to get organised and Sft loves being organised!

    If you want to see our itinerary, i am blogging about it tomorrow. There are 10 interesting facts about Botswana on my blog post today.

    How's you itinerary going by the way?

    1. It will definitely be interesting to see how your new bag compares to your favored rucksack! I suppose the wheels will be handy on the new one, but only time will tell!

      I am excited to see your itinerary and hope to take some time this weekend to read up on more of your past posts!

      Our itinerary is still a bit loose at this point due to some big "maybes" that will affect the route, but we are starting to fill in the pieces and I will be posting about it soon, so stay tuned!
