I finally broke down and bought a good daypack today. My wife and I have been cycling through cheapie daypacks for years. We usually use her Mountain Warehouse 20L bag on days out, and I end up carrying it. It gets hot, it sags, and the pocket arrangement makes no sense. It drives me nuts. Back when I was in highschool I paid good money for a bag, and I had it for nearly a decade.
Buy well, buy once.
So today I bought an Osprey Skarab 30. I got it from Open Air who have opted for appointment-only shopping in light of the virus. It was a great experience. I look forward to heading over there to filling the gap in my shoe selection!
