So when I was researching the Pakt One, I knew that it needed to address all these issues. It needed to be large enough for long-term travel. It needed to have all the compartments I never knew I needed. It needed to have a designated spot for my laptop, external hard drive, and charger. And it needed to be constructed in such a way that my clothes could be folded properly, to lessen the risk of wrinkles.
And: it needed to be good quality. Excellent quality. For the past year or so, I’ve made a point to either purchase things that will last, or not purchase them at all.
Now, I haven’t had the opportunity to travel with the bag yet. I was hoping that it would come in before our last big road trip, but it was not meant to be. I can’t truly speak for the bag and write a proper review until after its maiden voyage, but here are some first impressions:
One: it appears to address every problem I was having and more.
It handled the two blankets and five t-shirts I stuffed in it (for photoshoot purposes, of course,) like a champ.
Two: this is solid, quality construction. You can never really evaluate the quality of an object until you hold it in your hands, and although—again—I haven’t travelled with it, I’m already impressed.
Three: the bag arrived at my door with zero plastic packaging. That’s a bonus, and a hefty one at that.
