Gregory Jade 50 Backpack Review – Video

Finding the perfect travel backpack is like finding your favorite pair of jeans. They are personal. It can take a lot to find just the right brand, quality, comfort, style, cost, or even color to fit the bill of what you need or want. And what you end up with may be completely different than what your travel buddies get. The bottom line about backpacks is that they need to work for YOU, and be just what YOU need to make hauling your stuff around a success.

I have found my match. If you haven’t seen my video How to Choose the Perfect Travel Backpack, I recommend you watch that one now so you can understand exactly what you should be looking for in a good backpack in the first place. In the video below, I take the information presented in How to Choose the Perfect Travel Backpack a step further to apply it to my Gregory Jade 50 and explain how it has earned its status as my go-to travel pack.

My Gregory Jade 50 is a women’s size small that I got at the REI Outlet. Check out your local REI store, or even shop online for the backpack of your choice, and don’t forget to search backpacks on the REI Outlet for a chance to save some money! This is a HUGE money saver and REI offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, you just can’t go wrong with that!
