Gearhead Picks: Backcountry Adventure Pack

Why Emily Jenson Loves This 30L Travel Bag

Traveling is way easier when you have a travel pack that keeps you organized on every stage of your trip. In this episode of Gearhead Picks, Backcountry Gearhead Emily Jenson walks you through the travel-specific features of Backcountry’s very own Adventure Pack and provides expert packing tips that you can apply when you’re getting ready for your next trip.

Summer is on the doorstep. If you have a big adventure planned this upcoming season, this pack is going to be your new best friend. With a roomy 30 liter capacity and a uniquely versatile design, our very own Backcountry Adventure Pack can handle anything you encounter on your travels.

This pack is incredibly comfortable thanks to a myriad of features. Its compression molded back panel, adjustable shoulder straps, and stowable waist belt make for customizable carry. The pack has four external compression straps that let you cinch it down when you don’t have it filled to capacity. There’s also handles on the top and the sides of the pack that allow for easy access when placing the bag in an overhead bin or getting out of a taxi. On top of that, you won’t have to worry about handling the bag carefully thanks to its 300 denier non-PVC tarpaulin, and 600 denier Oxford Polyester exterior. This makes it extremely resistant to tears and abrasions.

The Adventure 30L Pack features two separate compartments: one for your laptop or a hydration bladder and another large compartment for your essentials like clothing and toiletries bag. External zippered pockets keep your gear easily accessible and keep you organized. There’s a large fleece lined top pocket to house valuables like sunglasses or your wallet. Another pocket located on the back side of the pack makes for a perfect place to store essentials like pens, sunscreen, and snacks.

There’s also loads of gear loops located on the pack that allow you to hang various pieces of gear like a whistle or a solar panel. And last but not least there is an external pouch for a water bottle which allows you to stay hydrated easily without the pains of having to rummage around your pack.
