BackPack In A Pocket Review

Today I want to let you know about a great lightweight little travel product.  It's not a bag or a suitcase.  It's just a backpack in a pocket!  I was excited to receive this Backpack in a Pocket because I was about to head out for vacation in the Smokies.  I used to go with my family every year but now just get up there less often.  We always go for day walks in the national park and a few walks in town that become major shopping excursions.

This backpack comes in two colors on Amazon and is make up of ripstop nylon.  I took the proactive step of spraying it with Scotchgard.  You learn the hard way to not forget to use Scotchguard on a camping trip and so I like to use it whenever as a proactive measure.  This bag had some reflective stripes for safety and an outer zippered pocket for convenience.

I tossed this pocket sized pack in the car and found several times to use it during the week.  I think this pack is perfect for day hikes/walks.  Whenever I head to the mountains I either start or end up cold so I have learned to bring a light jacket.  I also like to carry a water, bug spray, lip balm, ID, and snack crackers.  Well you can see that This all can add up to just too much for carrying in my pockets.  Well the Backpack in a Pocket is perfect to carry around that stuff and leave you hands free while wandering around.  then when I have finished my water and snack and am wearing my jacket I was able to stuff the backpack back into its integrated pocket and clip it to my jacket.  I found it to be well balanced for a light backpack and worked great.

I wish I had this lightweight pack a couple weeks ago when hitting a state park with my BFF and her 4 yo daughter.  natalie is adorable when she insists that she can carry her own little backpack but about the time you realize it's too far to run back to the car she realizes she can't carry that bag another step.  I found out the hard way that a tiny kid backpack is just not wearable for an adult.  I would have loved to have this handy backpack to stuff her little bag into and then enjoy the rest of my walk.

I like that this backpack has lightly padded straps that are adjustable for comfort.  It is not a super sturdy backpack for a month in South East Asia, but it is a great portable pack to take along in your car for many uses.

Well thank you for reading and have a great day!
