As a frequent traveler and social media blogger rolled into one, what draws us into acquiring backpacks is the feature itself that can hold a certain amount of essentials to be pack for certain trips plus if the bag can hold our laptop, cameras, smartphones, and iPad.
Normally we traveled with 2 Nikon cameras, a D3000 and D3100. Each one equipped with separate lenses for wide and tight framing. We carry either a DELL Inspiron 1440 or an ACER Aspire V5 laptop just in case we need to update our online assignments. We slip our iPad and a couple of smartphones within our basic essentials such as clothes, pants, underwear, toiletries, slippers, sunnies, and all.
The basics differ as per the places or how long we will be gone. It could be an overnight to a 3-5 days trip, we’ll never know.
You see, that’s the basic fills that we need and a good quality day-pack or backpack is a must. You could imagine the bulk and weight of it.
In our experience, there are 3 important things that we should take note when using bags.
Tip #1 – First, a trusted zipper lines is crucial for the bag. If the zippers are not on the exact place, things could go wrong from a good mood to a bad trip. Zippers are important just as what the content of the bag are. The tip. When pn the look-out, check if the bag’s zipper is YKK. Man, ever since we were kids, YKK is the most trusted and reliable zipper brand we’ve heard of. Passing by malls or riding the MRT/LRT, could mean a lot of opening and closing bags. Never rely on a cheap branded zippers.
Tip #2 – Straps. A cheap quality bag can wear and tear straps even before your next birthday so make sure that the bag you are purchasing has a sturdy and strong straps. Durable straps are seamed and locked properly. Make sure that the bag you are carrying on your shoulder (or back) has Seam Locked Reinforcement – Reinforced Straps through high quality seaming for durability.
Tip #3 – High tear strength. It’s not only the straps that can worn out especially if you are using the bag in the most toughest situations. Much more if the contents of the bag puts too much weight, it must be abrasion resistant and have a high tear strength to last a lifetime.
And one brand has all of these qualities. Outdoor Products can get you to your destination with comfort and ease, from point A to point B, get your job done in school or at work and help you create great memories in your travels while using the Outdoor Products bags.
“Outdoor Products only use genuine YKK (Yoshida Kōgyō Kabushiki Kaisha) Zippers, one of the most trusted and durable zippers used by manufacturers in the world,” said Eros Enriquez, Asst. Marketing Manager of United Limsum International Trading, Inc. during the first Outdoor INSTAmeet event with bloggers and IGERSManila.
The next thing, Enriquez said, that usually gets damaged in our bags are the straps. “Outdoor Products uses Seam Locked Reinforcement–Reinforced Straps through high quality seaming for durability.”
And lastly to make sure that everything inside your bag stays safe, Outdoor Products are made using Cordura and Kodra – materials known for their toughness.
Cordura and Kodra are very abrasion resistant and have a high tear strength. These are the fabrics used for army fatigues and backpacks, extreme games apparel, and heavy load works. It is also more lightweight as compared to canvas materials, and polyurethane coated Kodra and Cordura are even considered waterproof.”
