After waiting for about 4 months, the Pakt Backpack has finally arrived., a late birthday present to myself. I originally ordered the bag in March when Pakt launched the campaign on Indiegogo. The bag was supposed to arrive in August, but it came early. And if I’m being honest, I wanted a Pakt bag for years, but backpack are much more my style when I travel due to back problems. Their duffle bag looked amazing, but not useful for me when I had a bag that partially had the same set up as this backpack.
The bag is eco-friendly, shipped in all cardboard through Seahive, and I the expectation I have is for this bag to be my travel bag for the foreseeable future. I’m hoping 20 years, if not longer.
Since I received it so early and on my day off no less, I decided to take the time to sit down and record an unboxing and first impressions review about the backpack.
It’s a well constructed bag, with a few quirks, such as how hard the fanny pack/hip belt is to get back into backpack. But over I’m excited and looking forward to using it.
This video and post are not sponsored, I just really want to talk about the product and share my thoughts on it.
Side note…I called Union State in Washington, D.C., Grand Central Station. Woops. I knew there was a Union Station in NYC and DC and my brain pulled the wrong name out of the hat, but I meant Union Station in the video.

And for those wondering, I’ve decided to keep my Eagle Creek Weekend bag. I’ll be using it was my bug out bag, should there be a fire or natural disaster or emergency it will be the bagged that is prepacked with emergency supplies and ready for me to run out the door to safety if needed.
