The front organization has spaces for most of your stuff if you use this instead of a tech pouch. This also has an RFID protected pocket for your scan-able, sensitive items like a chip passport or debit card. But on the flip side let’s talk about who this backpack is not for. This backpack is not for you if you’re looking for a normal everyday carry. Last section, let’s talk about the back of the nomatic backpack. First up we have something very very interesting and unique and kind of cool but also kind of off, this handle.
This whole digital Nomad Mecca area feels a little bit loose and flimsy for my taste. But these elastic mesh compartment pocket thing image augers are good for bigger items, but the ones on this side are good for smaller items. These are a bit smaller, they don’t really expand quite out as big, but check this out. In this bottom left-hand pocket, you have a little key leash. It’s actually clipped inside there, maybe hard to see but you can go ahead and see that you can take your keys out with this little leash and its badass dude.
Welcome to the world, as seen through the eyes of Cameron Seagle and Natasha Alden. On this site, readers will find our experiences, gear reviews, photography, tips, and informative travel guides. Shirt Organizer – this is a fantastic shirt folder that fits perfectly in the main compartment of the Nomatic 40L. It can fit up to 5 shirts and will help to prevent wrinkles.
I’ve never done it that fast so I guess it was a bright side. You get better at it the more and more you practice it. Now on top of that, I just don’t really like the way that it looks as a briefcase but I love the way it looks and feels as a backpack, so I’m just going to keep it as a backpack all the time. People don’t think that I should talk about interior materials, but the interior materials are just important like the experience of the way the bag feels. You’re not just touching the outside, you’re actually interacting with the inside more than the outside. Like you’re always going inside and your hands are rubbing up against this stuff.
It’s kind of awkward when packed out how the bag sits on your back with no give. I get that they wanted it nice and robust, but it’s overkill on this style of bag – the weight should never need that thing. I wish the front pocket had a bit of its own internal volume. For my travel style and needs I need a quick access portion of my bag to hold my tech kit and maybe headphones. It’s hard to use that here since it’s designed as the tech pouch itself, but has no real internal volume to be able to store something that’s more 3D.
The backpack straps to duffel bag strap transition is a little clunky. The NOMATIC Travel Pack is also built for city travelers who zip around public transit in style, not for hikers or trekkers. The design is sleek and minimalist, so if you’re a design nerd, you’ll love it. Maybe I’m just used to traveling with a traditional backpack with traditional backpack straps , but I feel like some basic waist straps could come in handy here. But that does mean it’s limited as an everyday backpack. It doesn’t have the specialized features that the NOMATIC Travel Pack and Bag have.
I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated. Some times its a pain in the ass to read what people wrote but this web site is very user friendly ! It’s sufficient to realize that the most extreme limit of this knapsack is 24 liters. However, 4 lbs are quite useful for such a durable ordinary pack. So we’re expecting premium materials and a very long lifespan.
We’d recommend detaching the waist straps if you prefer to use your Nomatic Travel Bag as a duffel bag (which many, many people do!). The water bottle pocket becomes very crowded as the bag fills, and if you have a very full bag it gets increasingly difficult to fit your bottle in. This simple addition brings an enormous amount of convenience to travelers and should not be underestimated. Sure, you could purchase your travel laundry bag , but it won’t fit as seamlessly into your Travel Bag (plus it’ll cost you extra money!). Other bags have implemented a duffel bag or shoulder strap feature, but we can confidently say that no one has done it as seamlessly as Nomatic has with the Travel Bag. Watch the video above for a demonstration (it’s quite smooth).
