High Sierra Loop Hiking Backpack Review 2019

Packing your stuff can introduce a whole host of problems. If you are traveling, then packing can result in big, bulky suitcases which make moving from place to place a hassle. Similarly, if you are a student and need to pack for your school, an unwieldy bag is a problem in itself. So you need something that is suitable for both school and travel without the sort of problems we discussed above. High Sierra claims its Loop Backpack is exactly the thing you have been looking for.

Features of the High Sierra Hiking Backpack

High Sierra Loop Backpack is extremely well built. Nylon and mesh construction enables the bag to fight off moisture. This makes the backpack practically waterproof. This is a huge plus for any backpack that is targeting people who are constantly on the move.

Keeping things organized is also an issue when it comes to backpacks. It is nice to see High Sierra taking this into consideration as the Loop Backpack has different compartments for organizing stuff. The organizer compartment on this bag has multiple pockets for your stationery and other smaller stuff like keys.

Gadgets are a part of our everyday life. So it is quite fitting that the Loop Backpack has a dedicated TechSpot sleeve. The TechSpot sleeve serves to securely store your tablet. The inclusion of this sleeve makes this bag stand out from the crowd since it enables you to take your tablet wherever you like.

Moving on to the outside we have several compression straps. These compression straps make this backpack manageable. Two compression straps on the sides, one on either side  and one on the bottom provide extra support to save larger stuff like a tent or a sleeping bag. There is also a monster hook on the front for attaching more accessories.

Staying hydrated is important when you are out and about. High Sierra knows this and has accordingly included two mesh beverage pockets to make it easy to access water bottle and such.

Finally, there is a suspension system on the shoulder straps providing shock absorption. This is a really helpful feature as it makes carrying heavier loads easier.

Available in a whole host of colors, the Loop Backpack costs less than $30.
