This line is more approachable in terms of price, and it doesn’t’t offer internal capacity expansion, or as many compartments. It also comes in smaller sizes (15L and 20L, no 30L option) and just generally has fewer bells and whistles. That said, it looks to be even more discreet for general use as a daypack, and the smaller size option is probably something that people with smaller frames were looking for anyway. 149.95) that is a true shoulder bag vs. Totepack design. These options are probably ideal for students or lighter photo/everyday carry use, and present yet another set of options for people looking for something other than a more standard backpack. 79.95).

Overall, Peak is launching a ton of updated products all at once, which is nice because it means the whole line benefits from the new materials, designs and zippers it’s now using.

6. So let’s assemble the front of the bag shall we? First you need to grab your side panel piece and attach it to your zipper piece you just made. Sew that all the way around. Now let’s do the inside of the bag. Starting with the pocket. Grab your pocket piece and fold it in half so that right sides are together. Sew around it so that only about 4 inches of it is unstitched on one side. Turn under the opening and press the whole thing nice and flat. Now you need your coordinating fabric zipper pieces. Now you know what to do-same thing as before. 8. Now you have completed the outside and the inside. All that’s left to do is attach them. And then sew it on both sides so that they are attached. Now flip it so that the outer fabric is right side out and the inner fabric is right side out but on the inside of the bag.

We so often overpack cases no matter how hard we cut back etc. But they have wheels attached to help move them about. Hi Ethel - for any trip I have a tenancy to over pack. Your idea of packing ahead and trying the backpack on, and wearing it for awhile makes so much sense. Not being a back packer, I can see how the pack would seem to get heavier and heavier as you hike. That is some excellent advice with regard to weight distribution in backpacks. Ethel, your tips will save backpackers a lot of time and regrets. I never know what to pack when traveling, I will keep your trips handy for the next one planned for March. Thanks Liz. Yes som eof it is just common sense but sadly too often people just chuck stuff in a backpack and suffer for it. This brings back memories of the rucksack I invested in many years ago for an overland trip to Germany. I wish I had read your tips then. This article also rings true for day packs. A friend of ours suffered with a bad pack after cycling to work with heavy work shoes misplaced in his backpack. Sightseeing with a day pack loaded up with bottled water, snacks camera etc. is much more comfortable if the weight is evenly distributed. These are really good suggestions. Before I got hurt I loved hiking on the Appalachian Trail, which we can catch in a few different places within an hour drive or so.
