Peak Design teased a new product two weeks ago and their fans got excited about the possibility of a new pack release from the popular camera gear manufacturer.  Unfortunately, it ended up just being two new colorways of their Everyday Backpack – Black and Tan.   Don’t get me wrong.  I’ve held out for them to […]

Recycled Firefighter Battalion 24 Hour vs. GoRuck Bullet 15

Post Image

I recently got the Recycled Firefighter Battalion 24 Hour pack in and wanted to do a quick side-by-side comparison with the GoRuck Bullet 15.  As many of you know, the Bullet 15 has been discontinued by GoRuck but it’s still in high demand these days. Especially the original 1000D Cordura Two-Compartment version that I own.  […]

First Look: Evergoods CPL24 and MPL30 Backpacks

Post Image

I’ve come to the realization that I’m in a pretty major EDC pack rut.  So, I’m currently curating a selection of new EDC packs to try. They won’t be from brands like TAD, GoRuck, Arc’teryx, Hill People Gear, or Mystery Ranch.  I want to branch out and experiment with some gear from lesser known manufacturers […]

Hill People Gear FrankenPack Review: Umlindi, Connor, and M2016

The Hill People Gear Umlindi with a M2016 Top Lid and Connor Pocket

When I was a kid, I loved playing with Legos.  I guess that’s why I dig this Hill People Gear kit.  It’s like Legos for pack nerds.  The Connor has been my day hiking pack for 18 months now.  I recommended it to a couple of my close friends and they carry one now too. […]
