I'm bonkers for a good tote, and my new favorite is the Navigator Collapsible 28L. On a recent trip to Scotland it was essential to my exploration of the Isle of Skye. As we wandered castles and hiked fairy glens, it was chock-full of cheese and onion "crisps," cameras, film, beanies, a tartan-patterned umbrella, and our trusty Rick Steve's guidebook. It seemed to have endless space, and its magical water-resistant material kept it all dry while wandering in the peninsula's shifting climate!
As an avid outdoor enthusiast in all seasons I can safely say that the 25L McKinnon Pack is my go to. Swapping out goggle lenses on the fly with the quick access top compartment is a breeze. The MOLLE attachment hooks make carrying camping/hiking accessories as functional as they are stylish. Not only does the rip stop fabric look excellent, it holds up as well as any ski jacket. From après to Oktoberfest this bag checks all my boxes.
Hands down, the Access Sling is my ultimate go-to bag for my active lifestyle. The mesh interior pockets and hidden outside pocket make it easy to fit my wallet, airpods, chapstick, keys, gum, and more while staying organized. I love how compact and lightweight it is and also the water-resistant material, making it quick to dry. High in quality, low in price. Glad to say I'll already have it once it goes viral and/or sold out ;)
Listen, if you aren’t optimizing your travel then what are you doing? The Carry-On Classic and Travel Pack combo is the greatest travel combo known to mankind. I maximize the Carry-On space for clothes and utilize the perfectly thought out organization of the Travel Pack for my shoes, toiletries, headphones, cords, computers, etc. I can go 2 weeks with these bad boys and its not even a struggle! Not to mention the Travel Pack doubles as my office bag. This is the easiest decision I have made in my life.
The star of all my travel and everyday adventures this year has definitely been the Backpack 14L (new size). Not only is its compact size comfortable on my petite build, but it’s been a game-changer on the road (and in the air), keeping me and my tech organized for whatever the kiddos throw my way.
