Looking for a lightweight, versatile, and affordable backpack for travel or urban adventures? Than check out the new Timp pack from Lander. It comes with a surprising number of features to help keep you organized while on the road, but won’t manage to break the bank in the process.
Made from durable, water resistant rip-stop fabrics, the Timp is designed to go where ever you do, while making it easy to carry your all of your important gear around at the same time. In addition to a larger main compartment, the pack has a number of organizational pockets that make it easy to keep the bag neat and tidy no matter where you’re headed. That includes a sleeve dedicated specifically to holding a tablet in the main compartment, as well as an easy to access exterior pocket for your laptop that comes in particularly handy when traveling through security at an airport.
Other nice features include reflective elements that make the pack more visible in low light conditions, a quick-access pocket for storing your passport or other important documents, and a nicely padded backpanel that offers more comfort than I expected from a bag with such a minimalist design. Well-placed grab-handles make it easy to pick up the pack and go at any time, while an adjustable sternum strap allows you to dial in just the right fit. The pack is even hydration ready, which is not something you find all that often in a bag that seems more well suited for urban adventures rather than backcountry escapes.
The minimalist design of the Timp backpack gives it a sleek, modern look that is definitely appealing, but aside from the laptop sleeve, there isn’t a great deal of padding to be found here. Under normal circumstances, cargo stored in the main compartment should be fine, but I’m not sure I’d want to drop the bag while carrying anything all that fragile inside.
On the other hand, the minimalist approach does manage to keep the Timp from becoming overly bulky or heavy, which is something that commuters and frequent travelers can both appreciate. The fact that it can do so while still managing to carry a heavy load with ease makes this a handy pack to have your disposal however, and should make it a favorite for every day use or as a carry on during a flight.
The other impressive thing about the Timp pack is that it carries an affordable price tag too. Some travel backpacks will cost you an arm and a leg, but the 25L version that I tested costs just $129.99, while a smaller 20L model has a price tag of $99.99. Both are pretty much identical in terms of features, with the main difference just being the amount of capacity that they have to offer.
For a durable, high quality, minimalist and good looking backpack at a great price, it is tough to beat the Timp pack. It has everything most of us would ever need to handle our daily commutes or travel adventures. The fact that it won’t make your wallet whimper in pain is a nice added bonus for sure.
