Review: The Hoboroll by Gobi
Easily the most annoying thing about any bag is that there is no way for everything to be at the top right? Marina and I both pride ourselves in packing extremely light and during our current trip around the world, we still travel with all carry on only luggage. But this of course creates quite a little problem. With all the stuffing, rolling and cramming of our clothes, its like opening a Pandora’s box whenever we arrive in a new location with slim hope of ever zipping our bags up again. And we don’t even think about buying souvenirs, as we have no space to pack them! All of this changed when we tried out the Hoboroll by Gobi, at least for day and weekend trips.
By have a circular design with convenient compartments, you can easily fit everything you need for a long weekend into the Hoboroll and be on your way. Planning a fun day trip and want to bring a change of clothes? Check. Want to go for a hike that ends with a swim in a nice lake? Check. Plenty of room for a towel, bathing suit and plenty of extra clothes.
“Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb.” – Greg Child
While we never thought we would find a better solution than simply throwing all of our junk on a backpack and getting on our way, we were pleased to come across the Hoboroll and even more excited to take it on hikes, day trips, overnight adventures and generally keep it around as a wonderful alternative to the traditional backpack. So, would recommend it to you – you bet. It really is more than just another piece of travel gear and come in quite handy when on the go for an afternoon or on the adventure of a lifetime. And for $27 you can’t get much better!
