Baby Boomer Back Packs – Going Solo

Hybrid for the Adventurous Baby Boomer Traveller




I dont know about you, but I vividly remember the back pack I hauled around the world in my 20’s. It was heavy, hard to access, and I could never find anything when I needed it without pulling the whole thing apart. We were not friends when I returned home…In fact I never wanted to see it again!

When I discovered these Osprey Sojourn backpacks on wheels, you can imagine my excitement. Negotiating train stations and ferries came flashing to mind, not to mention European Train travel which would be a whole lot easier. And my back a whole lot better off. Bless the wheels….I travel alone quite a lot too and I can handle this with ease.

The Sojourn, as it is affectionately called, comes in two sizes…60Litres – 3.46kg, and 80 Litres 3.58kg. It comes in three colours – Earth Brown, Charcoal and Pepper (orange), and retails for $349.95 and $329.35. The packing system inside the bag is very organised and rather than buy a back pack with a day pack attached, this one gives you the option of buying your own to suit your own needs.

If you are a clever packer this will be ample room for you and at least a 3 week trip. If you  really want to economise on space, decant all your lotions and potions into the Plane Jane Travel Bottles and use Eagle Creek compression packs.

Now if you are like me, and have a thing about the wheels digging into your back, go and try one on and you will be pleasantly surprised. Not only are the wheels comfortable, but  it has ergonomic back straps that can be adjusted to fit your back shape. Once you see the unique packing system inside, you will be converted.
