    It's a good thing that Nordic never grabbed me the way it's done others. Now if one came out in Verde...

          Wanted to highlight these two new video reviews with lots of great tips for minimalist travel and packing:

          Best One Bag Travel Ultralight Gear & Packing List (by Zeke Kamm for Carryology)



          Tom Bihn Synapse 19: Minimalist Lives out of a 19 Liter Pack (Simple Living and Travel) by Brittany Taylor

          Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

          Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

            I watched the Carryology yesterday. It was quite well done, and I appreciated that the reviewer also mentioned things that didn't arrive in time for his trip that he intended to try out in the future. I definitely recommend watching it for some ideas. I only with he went more into *how* he packed/arranged everything!

              It was a good video, what I wasn't too keen on was he suggested getting both and trying them out on several items that are over $100 each. This great advice if you travel a ton and can use both or have large amounts of disposable income. But most of us don't (as he mentioned he did) have companies sending us gear to play around with.

                  Saw this in my RSS feed - a "what's in my bag" video by a blogger who uses a Co-Pilot:

                    Thanks, @Jeff9266. I really liked seeing this review of how the Navy/Iberian Co-Pilot is used with stationary items, and how various pads, pen rolls, pens, and the Hobonichi Techo Planner (A6) fit inside. Just a couple of comments: the Co-Pilot is, of course, Ballistic Nylon, and not Cordura (comment about 2:30 minutes into the video about how unusually sturdy the Cordura seems to be). He hasn't discovered yet how using key straps and O-rings can improve his experience.

                    For those of you reading the forums on older iOS devices who can't see the embedded Vimeo video, try doing a reply with quote, then copy the link into your browser URL. Or, I'll just paste it in directly here:

                      Check out this tweet from The Wirecutter -- sounds like their new backpack guide is coming out soon! (I like that they say there's no single best backpack: makes much more sense to me to narrow down the options to the very best all while recognizing that different people will want different features and that it's not one-design-fits-all.)

                          @tpnl I totally loved the part of the Brooks Review of the Sprout that included Erin's interview with Sloane (the part that begins after the text: "Sloane refuses to go to school without her Sprout backpack. I decided her words would really be the best, since she’s the one who wears it, so here is an interview I did with her about her backpack:"). I think that @Ilkyway would totally relate to this, given the experience of her daughter Emmely's reaction to the Sprout. But now I bet that if Emmely sees the fancy, violet paracord ties they put onto Sloane's Aubergine Sprout in the Brooks Review pictures, she will want them, too, on her bag.

                              New review of the Pilot - the vid doesn't show the bag packed too fully but provides some good views of the interior of the bag.
