Karrimor Munro Rucksack Review

by Gap Year Escape

Finding a lady’s traveling rucksack can be difficult. Compared to men, whose various types of rucksacks are available all-year-round, ladies have to deal with limited designs and brands available in the market.

When it comes to choosing the right travelling backpack, there’s a long list of factors to consider. This was what I didn’t realize a year ago when I had my first taste of 1-week outdoor travel and trekking adventure. It was not that bad, it’s just that I knew I could have enjoyed more if […]

Gelert Explorer Rucksack Review

by Gap Year Escape

A handy travelling rucksack is one of the most important items for hikers and trekkers. Technically, it’s more important than a GPS. However, not all travelling rucksacks work the same. I already had my fair share of failed trips because of a wrong (or let’s say problematic) rucksack. Hence, I decided to spend ample time […]
