What I Look For in a Backpack

In this review we have teamed up to write the top 5 things we look for when purchasing a new backpack. Hopefully this will help you consider what you really want in a pack before you purchase a new one.

 - 5 - 

Dayton – Back Ventilation: I got my wife to scratch my back after a long hike once. She learned her lesson. My back needs to get some cool mountain air flowing on it to keep it happy. I look for a pack that allows airflow to my back.

Jeff – Rain Cover: Built-in rain covers are great for sudden downpours you might experience on the trail. They stash in a special pocket at the bottom of the bag and all you have to do is zip it open and pull the cover of your bag and you’re good to go. 

Jake – Pockets/Compartments: I'm a huge pocket guy! I like my gear organized and compartmentalized. That being said, this isn't a deal breaker. Obviously, there should be different areas on a pack to store different gear, depending on how often you need to access it and where the weight is stored. There are certain items I want to grab in a second and others I won't need until I get to camp and others still I won't use at all unless there's an emergency. All these should have their specific place in my pack. I want to feel like I'm carrying a backpack, not a stuff sack. Storage sacks can help if you have a pack that doesn't have as many pockets, but try to think about where you would put the gear you already own on the pack you're looking at. (See #1)

Kuhl Parachute Jacket

Hey there Bloggers. Colton here with a Great Piece of Gear you can rely on when you need it. The Kuhl Brand Parachute Rain Jacket Shown Here

I will admit I am a bit of a gear nut. And I LOVE jackets. but sometimes its hard to pick the right one for the job that you can carry in your gear all the time. well folks I may have found the perfect jacket to stuff in a backpack and forget  until you need it. This bad boy is 100% waterproof and Wind Proof.  And when you store it in the Included matching Stuff Sack it takes up about as much room as a pair of hiking socks. How great is that. I decided to put this jacket through the ringer and see how well it holds up.  I have discovered that it fits really well with a Climbing Harness on and Moves well Enough that I had no issues Climbing all day in cooler weather. The Elastic around the Wrist helped keep the arms in place with no uncomfortable bunching or riding up. It had Great movement in the Shoulders and waist as I navigated so tough terrain.

I also took this  Jacket BMX riding with me on a couple of Occasions, Both dirt and Park Riding, it performed beautifully. I took a pretty rough fall riding in the dirt in the foothills close to were I live near Ogden. I was concerned at first that the jacket would have been torn on the rocks but this thing seams to be pretty bomb Proof. Not even a scratch.

My Final test was taking it to work. I work as a Delivery man for a local furnishing company and this is where this jacket is worth its weight in gold to me( however little that is). In the winter months and spring my job has a terrible draw back of being outside in the elements and going in and out of costumers homes. As you would expect people like to have it warm in side when the weather sucks. so the constant  temperature change of going in and out of all day long can get to be annoying because I have to constantly adjust my layers. well with the Kuhl Parachute Jacket, Spring this year was the best I have ever had. It kept me warm enough while not restricting the movement needed for my physical  job, at the same time it was light enough that being inside I wasn't dying of heat like I normally would when wearing a heaver jacket.

So the price for this jacket is 139$ at retail stores and it runs the same price on Kuhls official website. I will admit that is a little expensive but I tell you what. The Price Is Worth It.  I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for( as long as I can get it on sale Haha) but friends, I tell you this jacket is worth twice that easy. 

Here is a link Straight to Kuhls Web Page with all the information about the jacket I didn't cover
And if you have any questions shoot me an email!
