Hi, !

Quick note: I just noticed my friends Jason and Travis have launched their Tortuga backpack giveaway contest!  

I travel a lot, so it's important to me to have a comfortable, high-quality piece of luggage to take with me around the world.  I've tried a lot of things, but the Tortuga backpack is my favorite by FAR!  It's the only luggage I use now.  The only downside: it's pretty expensive. *cough*$300*cough*  I had to save up for mine, and it was totally worth it.

But Jason and Trav are running a giveaway right now and if you win, it could be yours, free!  Thought you'd like to know!

What makes the Tortuga backpack so great? 

  • It's designed to maximize the space you're allowed for a carry-on item. 
  • It's big enough that you may never need to check a bag again! 
  • It has tons of great features, like adjustability to accommodate a range of body sizes, comfortable padding, waterproof fabric in case you get caught in a rainstorm, and lots of pockets to organize your stuff.

...and that's to name just a few things.  

If you're skeptical about packing light, check out this article:  Top 10 Benefits of Traveling With Carry-On Luggage Only.  

Trust me, as someone who's done it many different ways, carry-on-only travel with a good backpack is infinitely more enjoyable. 

So jump on this Tortuga backpack giveaway!  I'll be jealous (but happy for you) if you get it for free.  Good luck!

Happy Travels!
