What do you look for in a backpack?

kakadu backpackI’ve had my Kakadu backpack for over eight years and I use it everyday. I love the many different pockets and the rugged look.

My Kakadu backpack owes me nothing. It has taken a lot of abuse and still holds up but I am replacing it with a new Kakadu backpack. These have not been available for quite some time so I was very pleased when I was able to grab a few for me and my customers.

One of the things about my old Kakadu backpack I noticed that needed repair was the canvas strap handle at the top of the bag. Lo and behold, Kakadu read my mind. The new Kakadu backpacks now come with a nice slice of leather trim sewn into the handle to add strength and reinforce the handle. I love the upgrade. Good job Kakadu!


Snugpak’s latest breakthrough in antibacterial technology

SnugpakSnugpak’s specialized antibacterial and antimicrobial treatment is on the outer and linings of all the Snugpak Travelpak bags and acts to discourage the growth of bacteria. This results in a reduction of odors and the need for regular laundering, ideal for prolonged tropical travel where temperatures may be high and facilities limited.

The Paratex base fabrics wicking properties and high breathability remain unaffected byb the bacteria busting treatments. The built in mosquito net which has been tried and tested in previous year’s in the Travelpak Traveler and Jungle bag sleeping bags has now been included in the rest of the Travelpak series. this “ingenious roll away when not in required” solution provides a natural way to protect yourself from insects. It is even possible to seal the sleeping bag when not in use to ensure you don’t have any creepy crawly company later that evening.

Users like the way the sleeping bags roll up and compress into a small bag, easy to carry with your backpack.

I’m sure Snugpak will have their work cut out for them keeping up with the demand.

Camping Is For Tents

Sure I know not everybody will agree. There are plenty of people who purchase a $40,000 recreational vehicle completely loaded with a shower, living room, microwave and television, park it at a KOA and call it camping.

Not me. When I decide to go camping my luxury item is the inflatable mat I use to put my sleeping bag on.  RV’s are nice but nothing beats sleeping in a Snugpak tent and relaxing with Mother Nature the way camping should be.

Snugpak Rocket Pack

The chest straps and hip belt are nice, thick and padded and very comfortable. The internal frame system that supports your back is also padded.

The bottom line is the Snugpak Rocket Pack should last you 10 to 20 years. Get one to take with you on your next three day adventure in the bush.
