My mission

Whether you like an epic trek to a mountain summit or a winding walk through a secluded forest, my mission is to show you that the best way to discover the world is on foot.

The pros

This pack served me very well on my trip around Indonesia. It carried all of the extras that I as a first-time traveller wanted to take with room for more. A sturdy frame and fully padded hip belt meant it was quite comfortable to carry for longer periods of time. I loved the huge front pocket and stretchy side pockets the most for easy access to the items that I needed to hand.

The cons

Seriously only buy this backpack if you’re expecting a heavy load for your travels. I found the weight of the pack wasn’t worth the load I was carrying after I ditched half of my belongings in Java. This pack is also very conspicuous. Something smaller and more discreet for long-term travel is best. But you can definitely carry lots of stuff in the Osprey Kestrel 68 litre backpack. The worst aspect about this pack is that I had to check it in every time I flew and wait in the baggage claim on arrival.
