Well, that didn’t take long 🙂 Chris has already posted a comment:
I think you’re projecting your own backpack insecurity and
inadequacy feelings onto me. You’re going to be begging me to carry some of your
stuff in my super comfortable, internal frame, light-weight, high-tech
amazing. The backpack is the same weight as yours yet carries so much more and
is going to be soooo comfortable to use. And don’t be afraid of that price! I
snagged one on eBay for less than half that.
I might be able to recommend
a good counselor if your personal problems continue.
So…I guess I need to put it up for a vote. If you feel, as Chris obviously does, that a modern steamer-trunk is required to spend 15 days in Europe (or voyaging on the S.S. Polar Explorer), please speak right out. However, as a reasonable and contemplative adult you steadfastly believe that compact and stylish wins the day, you may wisely agree with me.
Anyway, lets go.
