Backpacks

Recommended Posts

Anybody got experience with DSPTCH Daypack please? Is it worth the money? There are some similar looking packs that are a lot cheaper. Any better suggestions around this price point?

 

I love mine. I've carried it every day for the last year and have taken it on several cross-country trips as my only bag. It's a bit heavy, but it also feels bombproof and still looks more or less new.

 

I know they've updated it and made a few small tweaks since I got one and as far as I know they fixed the only complaint I had - which was the zippered pocket inside the front compartment which was a bit hard to access. It's not a huge thing, but it was slightly annoying so it's nice they've fixed it.

I just recently bought a vis 20L but it didnt come with the waistbands, is it possible to buy one separately?

newer versions don't have the loop for them, honestly it was pretty superfluous and nobody used them outside of lookbooks

 

if you're carrying anything too heavy for the small frame it has and the sternum strap you should probably be looking into an actual framed bag

i pretty much have the same thoughts. great bag, but the zippered pocket is a fucking headache - no idea how they thought that was good design.

Oh Head Porter. I think that Lexdray is probably similar quality for a great deal less money but I do prefer Head Porter's designs.

 

What's the name of this one? Quick google search hasn't produced any satisfying answers.

Funny how Quecha's logo (who are known for making pop up tents)  is similar to Gregory's.

Or maybe a squiggle is just a squiggle.

Carryology has some good content.

 

This backpack has hidden molle bits on it and you can buy a separate back suspension panel for more ventilation:

Has anybody heard about Master-Piece Brand from Japan?

It's a good brand. All high quality materials used. If you've never handled Cordura fabric, it's essentially a synthetic canvas. Very robust carefree material used in a whole range of $$-$$$ products.

I copped the Master-Piece Hedge in Blue off Grailed. It's super awesome, on par quality wise with other Japanese brands. The only thing is that they have very minimal internal pockets (in mine at least).

Has anyone actually used cuben fiber ITT? Considering a cuben fiber bag to replace my slowly dying 6 year old SAG, but I don't want to get one if it ends up being too fragile for daily usage. I've heard varying reports on how the long term durability is.

Yes. Love it. I've been using a cuben bag hard for years climbing, scrambling, and hiking. It takes on a patina for sure (creasing, colouration), but wears much longer than you might expect upon handling the material. Currently waiting for this:

I really wanted a leather one from mansur gavriel but lately it's been a b to get an order through...

Plus I need one that I can throw around, so I ended up with one from dsptch.

I kind of have a love/hate thing going on with all the nifty pockets inside. Bright side, it matches with everything easily, for most days when I'm bummin it. When I'm not, I still have my purses.

What cuben bag do you currently use?

HMG Windrider.

 

That said, I'd go for the slightly heavier black cuben next time because I value durability over the weight savings.

GoRuck has ~30% off sale if people are looking.  Always wanted an overpriced tacticool bag so jumped on a 34L for $260.

I've traded in my Visvim 20L for a DSPTCH daypack. Vis was too heavy.
