Timbuk2 Blink & Wander Travel Packs Review

The Blink & Wander packs from Timbuk2 are tough, rigid little numbers for travel with unfortunately weak feeling zippers.

  • Solid fabric — very tough, rigid stuff.
  • Weak feeling zippers — they might be totally strong, but they don’t feel like it.
  • Lots of space in the Wander Pack, but uncomfortable straps for all the weight.
  • Blink pack is a nice tight minimal pack for travel.

The 50L duffel from Aasgard is a very exciting idea — massive space in a weatherproof simple duffel with backpack straps. (The shoulder straps could use an update though.)
