If you’re into camping, backpacking, hiking or a multitude of other outdoor sports, you appreciate the value of stuff sacks. Lightweight and inexpensive, these drawstring bags, which come in a variety of sizes, hold gear, clothing, utensils or anything else you’ll need on the trail or in camp, and they easily fit into a backpack or luggage.
Now Gobi Gear has rethought the traditional stuff sack concept, and the result has made a good thing even better. Unlike a traditional sack, with its jumble of items in a single space, the SegSac is segmented into four separate, easily-accessible compartments that keep your stuff organized. No more rummaging around to find what you need.
Although geared to outdoor lovers, the SegSac would also be a great addition to ordinary travel. Made from strong 30D Cordura Brand rip-stop nylon. Comes in various colors and three sizes: 15, 20 and 30 liters. From $19.99-$27.99. Also available, at a higher price, with compression straps to reduce bulky items like clothing. Visit gobigear.com.
