As you might know from my „How I make a buying decision“ video: Rather than just looking at the pros, I like to evaluate the cons or flaws of an item and then evaluate if I can live with them. That is why in my video reviews I concentrate more on the cons of an item rather than going over all the features. Therefore everything shown is just a fraction of all the points that go into the verdict and score of an item.


A Quicklook usually covers pre-production units or items that I only used for a short period of time. While Reviews cover final items that I have reviewed intensively.


For all my videos I decided not to include links for the products. Everyone is living in different countries and therefore has to deal with different shipping and customs fees. That is why I would advice everyone just to Google the product within their country to find the best deals.
For instance: I live in Germany, It wouldn’t make sense to give you a German link while you might be living in USA or Asia. I hope that is understandable.


This video is not sponsored. While I sometimes get bags for free, I usually have to pay custom fees and in addition to that all my videos have lots of production costs. Therefore I invest my own money into all of these video and have no intention to be biased towards a product or company. All opinions in this video are my own unless stated otherwise.

greeenteeee says:

With so many bag reviews are you buying them all? I imagine going through so many would be a hassle… Buying and selling them off?

renzo260 says:

Good stuff! I’m also still looking for the “perfect” EDC backpack (for work), but I still can’t find one that stops the quest… I just want a bag for my camera gear AND laptop, in the most compact formfactor…

Rizal Amin says:

Benson Chong says:

Quick to the point yet insightful! Have you ever considered reviewing the Goruck Bullet backpacks? There are hardly any around! Though I know it doesn’t really match your lifestyle (know that probably from most of your videos)…

Vhari Brown says:

I still think 26 l Tom bihn backpack

v1d300 says:

Great review.

This backpack wasn’t as impressive from inside as it looked from outside.
This looked like the store bought backpack from inside like he ones Nike/Adidas/Puma/etc. Only difference being the quality being superior than those.

Michael Fresh Belief says:

Hey, thank for your videos.

Loved your honesty about the pacsafe bag and its lack of features.

I’m looking for a bag which is big enough to fit everything I need while I’m traveling but compact enough to fit as a carry on bag.

Has security features for anti theft so I don’t have to worry about valuables getting stolen and one which I can organise everything so all my gadgets, wires, notebooks are all just stuffed in the same place and are organised well

Which bag would you recommend for this?

Design in Hong Kong, made in Guangdong china.

fjellyo32 says:

Where to purchase this bag? I can’t find it!

Jens Ritchie says:

5:57 thanks for saying my name right the first time most Americans don’t get it right at all and usually takes 3 or 4 times or in some cases I just ask they call me Richie. yeah thanks for the shout out on the video I will be super ready to use the bag when it comes.

Benedict Tay says:

Did you find the X-pac material crinkly/noisy with a paper like texture? or was it closer to cloth?

David Sarto says:
