It’s great to see how “old” belongings still are in shape and good condition. I bought my blue Haglöfs backpack in 1997 when I graduated from high school and it’s been a good travel companion ever since. Now it’s got some small flaws but all in all it’s still fitting me perfectly and is in really good shape.
Anders bought his black ShoSho from Haglöfs a few years later. They had changed their logo by that time, but it’s the same foundation as in my backpack. I’ve got a female version – meaning that it fits us who are a bit shorter and need the waist band placed in another height.
He has had his backpack both for transporting clothes and a computer back and forth from his work on the motorcycle, but also for skiing trips, hikes and vacations.
Now we’re planning on just having our backpacks and maybe one smaller bag each for the upcoming trips. So we’re playing with a packing list. What do you really want to bring when space is limited, the destination is unknown and you don’t know when you’ll get back?
