The Track Jack Board Backpack from Crumpler is the first and last bag you will ever need to take when you travel.
This incredibly versatile bag can literally fit everything you can imagine into its various and spacious pockets. Having used this bag during the summer months to travel to Australia, Greece, Turkey, and Italy, I can vouch for its versatility and usefulness.
Firstly, as an on-board bag it is large enough to fit clothes for about a week and still have room for your laptop and accessories. The best thing about this bag is that the extra pockets you find for your pocket camera, wallet, passport, and other gadgets don’t get filled in when you pack the main compartment to the brim. When flying with this bag, the laptop compartment is easy to access, as is the top pocket which is large enough to carry your on-board-size toiletries bag, which comes in very handy when standing in a long airport security line.
On top of this it sits comfortably on your back even when full, and it also has a chest strap for the days when it is packed full of heavy items. I frequently travel with both my laptop and a compact tripod packed into it, and the bag has no troubles hauling 10 – 15 kgs worth of gear.
If you’re travelling anywhere this Christmas, this is a stylish, practical, and brilliantly designed bag to take everything with you.
