If you are already singing to yourself that “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,” you’re probably preparing for holiday travel – so why not look like a stylish traveler? Traveling light while still bringing along family gifts, perhaps an ugly Christmas sweater or two, and all of your personal belongings may seem impossible, but the right luggage can help with this.
Does that sound like an impossible task? Read on…
LittlePinkTop recently experimented with a sleek and stylish travel backpack that “was designed for everyday use and for those shorter 1-3 day trips.” We’re talking about the Travel Pack from NOMATIC, a brand that creates highly functional products for photography, travel, and everyday adventures. (The backpack was sent over for review, courtesy of the brand.)
The Nomatic brand was started by two cousins who made an original and super-functional wallet created for people who value sleek designs. Since then, the brand has expanded to luggage, camera bags, travel accessories, and even apparel.
This isn’t just your typical travel backpack: its matte finish looks especially sophisticated, and it has a highly functional design. It’s surprising to see a backpack that feels so upscale and professional – like nice luggage, but with all the convenient benefits of being a backpack. It strikes the perfect balance of rigidity and flexibility.
Unmatched Safety Features
In the digital age, safeguarding your privacy is key, especially when carrying essentials like passports and credit cards. These items are virtually an extension of your identity, and the risk of wireless scanning and digital theft is a real concern.
To address this, the Travel Pack features a specialized RFID (radio frequency identification) safe pocket. This pocket is reinforced with a combination of carbon fiber and aluminum, known as a Faraday Cage, effectively blocking any electromagnetic signals. This innovative design ensures that your personal information remains secure and private while you travel. Again, this adds to the sleek “pro” type vibes that define the backpack overall.
Packing Made Easy
The Travel Pack has a designated compartment for clothes and toiletries that are separated by mesh fabric – in fact, it even has a built-in glasses case.
And, of course, for people who need their electronics even when they’re supposed to be hanging out in their Christmas PJs and drinking eggnog, there’s a laptop and a separate table sleeve. The Travel Pack’s water resistance ensures nothing will get zapped or go on the fritz because of rain (but you still must be careful not to spill your eggnog once your electronics are out of the pack). The front pocket will fit all the wires and chargers you need to bring and will compartmentalize them with mesh pockets. Marie Kondo would be proud of this level of organization and tidiness.
And speaking of Japanese quality and perfection, this backpack is equipped with YKK zippers. YKK, short for Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikigaisha, was established in Tokyo in 1934 by Tadao Yoshida. The company is renowned for its dedication to perfecting the art of zipper making, overseeing every detail of production. This includes everything from the smelting of the metal used for the zipper teeth to the creation of the machinery that assembles them.
Adaptable to Your Travel Needs
Versatility is key. The Travel Pack expands from 20 to 30 liters when you unzip an extension section. Lastly, we can’t forget the peace of mind that comes with a reliable warranty. The NOMATIC Travel Pack is backed by a lifetime manufacturer warranty and committed customer service, ensuring your travel companion is always in top shape.
Happy customers have left positive reviews on NOMATIC’s website, with one saying, “Excellent for international travel. Traveled to Japan for 1 week & carried everything needed!” Another reviewer suggested that the extended backpack might be the same size as a normal checked suitcase: “I bought a travel pack five years ago. Used it a lot for traveling, and it was especially useful for low-cost airlines… but since it’s a backpack, the airlines don’t require a fee as these vultures do now. So you can get on the plane with the same amount of luggage without paying the extra fare.” Economical!
