Our friends at 221b Tactical have been busy making an affordable lightweight daypack that is just the thing for geeks, gamers and just about everyone else.
Their Geeks + Gamers pack folds into itself like a packable jacker, and basically turns into a travel pillow. If you’re looking for a three-day adventure pack to head out to the woods in, this may not bae the pack for you.
However, if you are sporadic user like me, this is something that I would keep in my ride for any time I decided that I want to take a spur-of-the-moment day hike. Or maybe just for a day at the beach.
Either way, 221b makes some great stuff and at a MSRP of just $39.99, this is a must-have for me.

There are many times when traveling that, once you get where you’re going, you want to drop off your bags and luggage and hit the streets, sights, beach, or trails.
