Pick Your Pack: The Search for the Perfect Backpack
Confessions of Bag-A-Holics
One of the biggest decisions of every adventure for us is what backpacks are we going to take. First of all, if we each only had one, this would not be an issue. But of course we have multiple varieties and sizes and shapes, all with their own unique function or flaw. I (Kim) have a little bit of an obsession with backpacks. Every time we go into REI, all of the bright and drab and large and small backpacks draw me into those aisles and I find at least 2 (or 8) that I absolutely have to have! Over the years, I have rubbed off on Andrea and she has joined me in the bag obsession.
The biggest complication for us is wanting something light, with great support and protection for carrying all of our camera gear around, and also with features for hiking and backpacking. Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing more detailed reviews of the bags we have and hopefully get some input from our followers on how they pack and carry their gear in all the different places they choose to wander.
