If you have been following me for a while you may already know that I am going to get married abroad (you have to read this post if you consider doing it), so a visit mid-April was obligatory. But before taking my new bag for an adventure outside of the UK I decided to give it a test run during my first Spring-Summer hike just in case.
Cabin Zero decided to help me out with my worries and treated me to a bag from their classic line in any colour of my choice. Lately I am walking around with my head in the clouds, so I picked one of their bags in a subtle blue colour. It was a close call between Blue Karma, Galactic Green, and Samui Blue.
On photo below you can read all about the technical bits and bobs you might want to know.
Packing Time! Water, two Barbour jackets, and few other camera bits and bobs fitted perfectly. Jackets are 'must have' in Scotland for me because as you can see from the pictures weather changes a lot! We had very sunny morning so our jackets were cosy in the bag just waiting for us to use them.
After looking at the sky I knew we will need jackets sooner or later. In case you wonder this time it was way sooner than expected. Sunny morning was followed with a rainy afternoon just to be sunny again later on, which is always a sweet way to end the day. All packed and ready to go!
We started out Spring with a gentle walk up the Scotty Hill in Banchory. It's a very easy walk and there are three different ways to reach the top. Of course we picked the longest one, not because we wanted to... We just went the wrong way, which is not a problem because I knew that afterwards we will go to one of my favourite places in Banchory, Birdhouse Cafe .
I forgot to mention! If you lose your bag Okoban Global Tracker will be helpful to track my bag. I just have to remember to finally register it. Blue Karma was designed to be a perfect cabin bag (sorry Wizzair, Easy Jet, and RyanAir I guess I still will only use a handbag).
I was lucky to catch a rainbow, pure perfection!
The bag comfortably hugs my back, something I really like as I am only 5’2’’ and the wrong bag pack easily disrupts my centre of gravity and posture. Thick padded shoulder straps are comfy and do not dig in into my shoulders, which would be an issue during longer walks from a train station to a hotel.
Lockable zippers also give me extra peace of mind whilst asleep on a plane. I can be really worried about it even though I do not carry anything that could not be replaced. I guess it's just the thought that someone would look through my private possessions. If it becomes lost during transit Okoban global tracker, which is attached to the bag, will help by locating the bag.
It does a dreamy job! Cannot wait to take it for an adventure in Poland. Are you getting yourself ready for Summer hikes and travels?
