Hey! Curious if you've reviewed or heard of this bag: https://www2.alchemy-equipment.com/collections/luggage/carry-on.html Can't seem to find a review on it, but it looks pretty cool :)

Hey Chase . I got a questions for you . So I'm going to Europe for two weeks not trying to take too many bags or suitcases so this video is helpful. I want to buy a bag I could come back and still use. I ride a bicycle and love taking pictures . So I need organization also weatherproof .I also like roll tops but it's not a deal-breaker. I have a t level messenger bag but it's kind of getting old and I want to upgrade . I like the Peaks everyday carry but feel like it's not waterproof enough. What do you recommend.

Check out the Rhake: http://bagworks.co/bag/mission-workshop-rhake-backpack/ And then my BIG list here: http://bagworks.co/daily-carry-bags/ Lots on that list that could work for what you're saying. Bon Voyage!

please do a review on Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault. I am surprise not to see any of their bags. Many of them are made in the United States. I think it's a great every day carry (EDC) and great 1-3 Day Travel Backpack

Hey, Chase! Greetings from the Philippines. Loved your Gr136 Rainmaker review. Maybe you could have a conversation with Bo Ismono on designing the “best imperfect” bag for each category. 🙂
Martin de la Fuente (2 months ago)
Hey chase, just came across you're channel today, and honestly am so glad I did. Looking for a backpack and was looking for something in between a traveler/backpacking. A look I'm trying to go off is the steep tech from the north face. One I did find was the r101f by orbit. Was wondering what you thought of this company and their products and if you could please give me suggestions of a bag you think I'd like from the 2 bags I just mentions. Please please a simple reply, a video, or anything ! I need a backpack soon!
Tristan Claude (2 months ago)
Whoever said the rain cover isn't necessary was WRONG. The last trip I went on, having one was so appreciated. Rain that's coming down hard, is too much for most backpacks even if they're very water resistant.

Is that first bag, the peak, waterproof/resistant?

You have no idea-now when I pack my bag, I always think, "laptop, tablet, papers... business papers... man..."
Diane Spina (4 months ago)
Hey there! I found a backpack you can sit on! Please see if you can get one to review. I am always looking to sit down especially in lines! It is bagobago.com. Apparently it has a hidden stool in it so where ever you go with your bag you can sit! If you decide to interview it please tell the manufacturer to make a bigger one cause that one won’t fit my stuff!

I love your videos but the screaming sound you have on title screens really gets on my nerve when played at that frequency if you try to watch videos back to back. Please consider changing it.

Great video. What do you suggest for under the airline seat backpack duffle. Had an under armour but the chest strap broke

What abour eberlestock, or mystery ranch bags. They are better in terms of innovation, and weight handling

Chase, could you do a review of the Monyker JW Weekender sometime? Thanks!

Anthony Valcarcel (5 months ago)
I’m a review hound... I mean I watch a shit ton of reviews about everything, and your approach is not only refreshing, but interesting. Here I am reviewing a reviewer, but I really appreciate your attitude and information. The best thing is that as I’m typing this, I don’t feel like you need validation which makes me want to fucking validate you more! Bag reviews... who’d have thought
Chase Reeves (5 months ago)
Thaaaaaaanks... honestly.

I'm looking into getting a Wacom Mobile Studio Pro 16". I would love a recommendation for a good 16" device bag.

Check out my video on the Aer Work Collection; the tech pack is what you’d want.

You should check you sound or you tone. It's very annoying to the ears. It feels like you're sreaming and/or talking SUPER loud. Thanks for the reviews though.
Lori Terpstra (6 months ago)
My husband enjoys your videos. I would let him watch them... if... I didn't have a seizure from the video screeching every 15 seconds. :( You're very knowledgeable and thurough on your reviews.

Living On Leisure (6 months ago)
Chase, I would love it if you could make a video dedicated to anti-theft type bags (branded that way or bags that you think have good anti-theft features). I'm a one-bag minimalist traveler and I want to invest in one nice looking, durable, secure bag that doesn't look like I'm carrying everything I own on my back.
Living On Leisure (6 months ago)
Chase Reeves I think that one is too big. I’m only 5’ 2” and I’m more of a 25ish liter kind of person. 😁 I’m looking at the Tom Bihn Synapse 25, and you seemed to have a pretty good opinion of that in the review. I fly cheap airlines and like to avoid carryon fees!
Chase Reeves (6 months ago)
I think maybe the nomatic travel bag is a place to look? http://bagworks.co/bag/nomatic-travel-bag/

P.S. I never knew that there was a whole community bag obsessed people. I have found my crew!

Possibly. I made this before I had those bags. You can see my current recommendations at http://bagworks.co/now

Love Your reviews of the bags. It seems like you have some really great knowledge. Wanted to know have you ever seen a back pack for under $100 with these features: Padded hip/waist belt, easy access side laptop compartment and 26 to 32 L found the Venturesafe X30 Anti-Theft Adventure Backpack. check it out at https://www.ebags.com/product/pacsafe/venturesafe-x30-anti-theft-adventure-backpack/306282?productid=10396493 The only things I dislike are that its too expensive and I don't need all the anti theft stuff it just adds weight and cost. Also it doesn't have a side access laptop compartment like I'm looking for. I travel a lot on surf trips some of the travel times are 36 hours+ with 4 flights and layovers. I fly through airports with a lot of walking and as I am small at 5'4" and 128Lbs it weighs on my shoulders and back quickly. I have hiking backpacks with waist belts and those are a lifesaver but they don't work well for travel on a plane or have a designated laptop compartment. PLEASE HELP! thank you!
Chase Reeves (7 months ago)
First advice: raise your price a bit and get something that will last a long time. Second advice, you could maybe go for a roll top backpack, like, any old roll top. I’m partial to the bags from YNOT. But also, Minaal carry on sounds perfect for you, as does the tortuga homebase backpack and Tom bihn synapse 25. This last one will last you 20 years, compared to a $100 bag which you’ll have to replace every 5 (and which can leave you STRANDED with a broken zip in Indonesia.) Use my links if you can! :) but have some great surf trips. I’m surfing in mex right now :)

Dude, I'm already interested in the video, you don't have to yell at the camera/ have yelling noises between takes to keep my attention.
oOcitizenOo (7 months ago)
What i love Youtube for is that you can find prople who loves something as much as you even though it is not a typical think to admire or love. And these are Backpacks! Love you man, i mean your videos and the manner you describe things in :D I just wish i could afford buying all these bags. But thanks to the crazy sh*t going on with a currency rate in my country i could barely afford Aer travel :)

Adam Steineke (8 months ago)
You should check out the Cotopaxi Allpa 35, really loving it!
Adam Steineke (8 months ago)
Additionally, since you are digging Peak Design stuff... you may be into camera bags a bit.. check out the Think Tank Perception Pro, that's my daily work/camera bag. Not really for travel as it's optimized for lenses and what not.

$220 for a backpack is not an affordable price 🤦‍♂️
Nannette Nagy (9 months ago)
I subscribed just because You’re super entertaining! I am a fan of Tom Bihn - specifically the Synapse 19! I just discovered Tom Bihn and within a week, I’ve spent a bunch of $$ on the S19 and accessories like their packing cubes, packing cube shoulder bag, the snake charmer, the Freudian Slip, the MacBook cache, extra zipper pulls, organizer pouches, key straps, utility strap, and so much more. Love your enthusiasm for the bags. Thanks.
Ivan Gavriloff (9 months ago)
Man, you're amazing!! Thank you so much. I'm trying to figure out what backpack buy for one bag travel. I'm between the Tom Bihn Synapse 25, the AER travel Pack, the Tortuga Setout backpack or the Wndrd Prvke 31. Which does anyone recommend? Keep doing what you do man! It's Awesome
Ivan Gavriloff (9 months ago)
Really appreciate what you do Chase! Thanks!
Chase Reeves (9 months ago)
Aer and Setout are really big. Synapse and Prvke are medium sized and capable to use as daily carry when you get to the destination. WANDRD you kind of can’t lose if you like that bag. Use the links when you purchase if you can! ;)
pokey Paula (9 months ago)
Yup . A cooler look is what I live for. Seriously.

This is an incredible video. Exactly what we like seeing. Relatable, informative and no BS. Keep it up!

"Most dream boat totes is totes amazing" lol love it. Can you do a 'if i create my own travel bag, ill combine this with this' kind of video?
PositiveEnergy (9 months ago)
Great video :-) I don't suppose you're planning on doing a review of the Allpa 35L are you? Or just any opinions in general? Also, as far as use is concerned, do you happen to do much camping? If so, do you have a favourite with that in mind? Really did like the video, cheers for making it :-) I'll be sure to use one of your links when I decide what exactly I'll be buying (although at the moment I'm thinking maybe the allpa 35L)... All the best with everything, love your passion :-) Emma from Australia.

SPEAKING OF SINGLE BAG TRAVEL... Can you get your hands on the Wandrd Haxad Access Duffel to review?!
Greenjacket James (10 months ago)
I use the 5.11 Rush 72 bag. A behemoth of a bag for minimalism but it is so organized you just can't go wrong. Marketed as a military type bag, so I bought it at a surplus store but it is well worth it. Most other bags I've seen in stores just simply cannot compare haha

Why all these bulky ugly ass bags are in a video titled "BACKPACKS" ??? Guess this review doesn't apply to college grads, tech gadgets, daily driver, work and such.
Rory McCallion (10 months ago)
Links are broken. Was about to buy through one.
Drew Meyerhoeffer (10 months ago)
Ever try out an F-Stop bag? They are pretty beefy and filled with features. Definitely themed towards traveling/hiking photographers/videographers though.
Simon McKenzie (11 months ago)
Totes more totes reviews please. I'm not a wierdo, promise. But I have researched tote bags. Why should the ladiezz have all the fun!?

What about the bondka backpack if you ever heard of it? If you have, a review would be cool.
Thomas Syvertsen (11 months ago)
Hi Chase, how does one contact you to send you bags to review? Great channel. I am a big fan of The Fizzle Show as well. Keep up the good work!
Robert Crocker (11 months ago)
I used my rain cover all the time in Bali! Here's the scenario. You get done at your coworking space only to realize you have to motorbike back to your villa in a monsoon. Rain happens! Thankfully your island woredrobe is comprised of no more than board shorts and flipflops. No worries if you get wet. Thanks to the Minaal rain cover you don't have to worry about your precious gear either. BOOM! Others might be stranded or forced to find a trash bag to cover their own packs with, while you can continue exploring or mosey home to enjoy a fresh coconut.
Matthew Ibarra (11 months ago)
Which color do you prefer on the Aer fit pack? I seen a previous video where you had the black aer fit pack and this one is the grey. I’m not really sure which one I should go with. Thank you.

You need to check out Red Oxx. Bags are guaranteed for life. You might like the sky train. And they don’t even pay me for this promotion.

Shit yeah totes... I don't know, I've lived in Asia the last 10 years where there's not the macho peer pressure I grew up with in Texas. I like a tote.

Hi Reeves. Rather good video again, ol' chap. I'd appreciate it if you could review the Deuter 40 transit and the North Face Overhaul 40 as there's no info. or availibilty on this side of the pond and they look goooood( it's so unfair that you rebels have the best and widest choice of gear - I'm crying into my tea!). Ta and cheers form Albion.

This whole backpack craze, which has suddenly been popular the last 10 years or so, needs to end! Why did people suddenly have the need to carry so much stuff with them when they aren't even hiking or traveling? People wearing backpacks have no business in crowded subways. They need to either take them off and put them between their feet, otherwise, take a damn taxi! Quit being inconsiderate!

Do you ever review any timbuk2 bags?? Would love your thoughts
payperview714 (1 year ago)
OK, just got the S25 today and have to admit in Halcyon it really not only looks like a Dad bag but a Dad Diaper Bag...ugh...back it goes in exchange for manly Ballsitic. At least I can admit I was wrong. +1 on your call.
Keith Mander (1 year ago)
What's your watch Chase?
payperview714 (1 year ago)
Love your reviews but still can't forgive you for calling the Tom Bihn Synapse 25 a "dad bag'. Still shaking that off!

Stop selling me on every bag!!! Haha, every video I watch I'm like, "yep, this is the bag for me". Then I watch the next one and you convince me that's what I want. I'm new to your videos but do you have a number bag that you use no matter what?
Jay Gatz (1 year ago)
Lol this was entertaining... thanks for the information have you EVER heard of or would you review the RE factor ASO bag?... thanks

Hey Chase! I saw that you loved the new Tortuga Nomad backpack. Can you do a review on it? I Just ordered mine but would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks! :D
March Fourth Ventures (1 year ago)
Subscribed! Great work (is it really work?!)! I hope your wife lets you keep making videos... How about a '2 bagger' carry on option??? I need a carry on duffel-type carry-on bag (work and play clothes mostly, no tech!) and a large 'personal item' bag (Tech, book, headphones, extra pair of shoes - size 12...i know, it sucks) that can be used for meetings. I do lot of int'l travel, want them to look sharp and every ounce counts...any suggestions from you or the community? My current go-to is a victorinox garmet duffel and sort of old 17" victorinox laptop bag. I would go with a double minaal but don't need or want tech in both bags.
Alex Prendl (1 year ago)

Nice video. I find I need a water bottle holder on a small daily use or travel backpack. Not on a one-bag travel pack, but anthing I'm going to use walking around. This requirement eliminates some very, very nice bags.

I prefer using Alan Garner's satchel
