If you prefer products made in the U.S.A. I have a hikers dream backpack to tell you about from one of my favorite companies, American Shield. The Granite 25 Backpack has all of the bells and whistles I look for when I buy anything to use while traveling, glamping, camping and even just going for a short weekend hike. What is especially nice about this backpack is that it’s suitable for men and women and that’s why it’s making my list of gifts for any occasion. I’ve mentioned this list before but I wanted to mention it again. You can find my year-long list on my above menu when you need gift ideas.
I needed a backpack for weekend travel, especially for hiking and camping or glamping. Because I generally travel alone with my dog, I don’t need a large weekender bag that takes up a lot of room for most of my travels. There are exceptions to this but usually, a backpack will do the trick. When packed right, a backpack will hold everything one could need and more for a day or two of hiking. With the Granite 25 Backpack, I can pack everything I need for almost a week. Yes, you read that right. I am the queen of packing light. When it comes to quality, this backpack stands out. Its “versatile, spacious, functional and multi-purpose.”
What caught my eye about this backpack when I first heard of it were all of the below perks:
– Textile lining
– Flap + press stud + drawstring opening
– Inner 15″ laptop compartment
– 8 Smaller inner pockets
– 1 Front pocket
– 2 external side pockets
– 1 Back pocket
– 1 Strap pocket
– Adjustable shoulder straps
– Top handle
I’ve yet to find a roomier backpack and I love the wide selection of colors. What would you use your American Shield Backpack for?
