First of all, I need a backpack. As I told in the introduction, for my work I’m traveling a lot. Still using an old traveling bag for it. It’s starting to break down so it’s time to get a new one. The smartest thing (I think) is to buy a backpack that I can use for work and also in the future for traveling.
It will take time to get to now a new bag, what comfortable and what’s not. During traveling for my work I’ve got time to get to know the new bag. Because I’m used to living out of a bag, I have a number of specific whishes. These are:
- Space, I’m almost 2 metres long. It simply takes more space to back my clothes in comparison to a smaller person.
- There has to be a possibility to open the bag like a suitcase. If you carry around a lot of stuff it will irritate the hell out of me if there is only a top loader and a small side entry.
- I’m a big guy, the bag has to be comfortable for my back. Smaller backpacks with annoy and hurt me if I wear it for longer periods.
- Options for carrying camping equipment like a tent, sleeping bag and so on.
Of course I have been googling for something like this. The one I’m fond of is quite expensive, the Fjallraven Kajka 80/100. Do I have enough for 80 litres? Perhaps 🙂 not ruling the 100 out just yet. Do you have any opinions, please do let me know!
