High Sierra Loop Backpack


High Sierra Loop Backpack

High Sierra specializes in adventure travel and outdoor gear but with the High Sierra Loop Backpack they've created a hybrid backpack that combines urban useability with outdoor functionality. It's a compromise that gives you a bit of both worlds so if you're a student or office worker who likes to go hiking or mountaineering on the weekend and you need one bag that can do it all, the High Sierra Loop Backpack is worth a look . . .


Navigating The Urban Jungle

You'll get three compartments. Think of them as small, medium and large. The first compartment is the smallest one and is in front of the bag and it has an organizer for pens, note paper, all the office stuff - it even has a key fob. The medium compartment is right behind the organizer compartment and is a sizeable space that could fit a jacket, shoes, or folders. Last of all is the large main compartment.

You get two highly specialized pockets. One is a quick access pocket right in front, on top of the small organizer compartment. You can use this for subway tickets, keys, or loose change - easy to get to in a pinch. No music no life? No problem. The High Sierra Loop Backpack has a media pocket up top with a port for headphones.

The compromise: No specialized storage space for laptops and tablets. Although you do get a cellphone compartment on the shoulder strap.


Enjoying The Outdoors

Alright, you finally get a break from work or school and now you want to hit the trails. You've changed mindset and clothes but you have to use the same old bag. Wrong. The High Sierra Loop Backpack can adjust to a different role just like you.

The three compartments still remain useful out on the trail although you won't be using the organizer feature of the smallest compartment. The medium compartment is perfect as a mini-hamper for your soiled clothes. By the way, the entire bag has nylon lining making it rain resistant.

On both sides of the bag are two elastic mesh pockets that you can use to hold water bottles, hiking poles, tripods, or umbrellas. The outside of the bag also gives you a monster hook. This hook, together with two bottom straps give you more options to carry stuff with you. The bag also has compression straps to keep things snug.

The compromise: No dedicated hydration pocket, no sternum and waist straps.
