Sometimes you come across something and it makes you stop and say “wow that is an awesome idea”, well that happened for us when we saw the Chico Bag Travel Pack Repete. It is a backpack that can fold in to itself, yet when folded out is fully functioning backpack.
The Chico Bag Travel Pack is made out of recycled bottles, so we know it is Earth friendly, a great trait for an outdoor backpack. The travel pack easily zips open and folds out in to a full sized backpack. The top pouch zipper now becomes the zip for your backpack, which has 2 side pouches for water bottles or other necessities, enough room to store belongings in the zippered backpack and is even set up to accommodate a hydration system. The backpack is actually really comfortable, it fits the body well with adjustable straps and a sternum strap if you are going on a more rigorous hike and need the support. Really the Chico Bag Travel Pack Repete has everything you need in a backpack and can store down to nearly nothing.
