New gig which will require more frequent travel again so looked for a lightweight, durable, minimalist work pack. Landed on the Nomin 2.0. Not cheap but not disappointed either. Will last a while and get used/abused.

Link?


I used to travel for work a lot and my wife is on the road for about 23 weeks a year. We've both found that a minimalist pack is the best way to go. The more pockets and stuff you have the more opportunities you have to have a pocket wear through. Plus the more pockets you have the more weight you add.

@DougNg I'm guessing that it's the very expensive and equally lovely Arc'teryx Veilance Nomin.

"Arcteryx Veilance Nomin"

Carryology reviewed version 1.0 over two years, and was smitten despite the price. Urbancarry also has a review, in which they give it grail status.

I quite like the look of the Seque tote, which is a simpler bag than the Nomin. I wish that they made it with a set of backpack straps, though.

The Outlier Ultrahigh Rolltop and Quadzip have a similar aesthetic, but are more minimalist. I suspect that the Nomin will be tougher.

Urbancarry, Everyday Carry, and Carryology have reviewed various versions of these packs.

I stumbled across this backpack on Farfetch the other day, but it was expensive, and has now sold out. But it's popped up on sale elsewhere, and it's quite tempting.

"Olubiyi Thomas Backpack"

That said, something like the Lotuff Leather Duffle Backpack or a Frank Clegg backpack will probably be better made.

The Nomin has been on my list for a while. A Visvim beat it last time but I might have to get one when they release the fall version.
Anyway, here is the new SDR dyneema tote:

Now I am annoyed.....

I have absolutely no need to carry around a mill in cash, nor do I need to minimise the risk of radio frequency tracking, but I want one of these so much  :) :) :)

Not today perhaps, but who knows what the future may bring? Buy one now and you’ve just prepared yourself for all sorts of eventualities. It’s just sensible, Boy Scout forward planning.

I’m sure Paula would agree....

@David_pll When looking for a new Backpack def consider Ortlieb  -> https://www.ortlieb.com/en/rucksack/

I own one of their Bike Backpacks for a couple Years now, no signs of wear at all, solid as a Rock, waterproof and Made in Germany.

Eddie, you need to learn this now.  Your mummy completed her job 10 months ago, since that time and forever more, Daddy is the fount of all knowledge and sage advice....

By the way, Eddie is adorable.  Sure he's yours?
