Like many relationships, building a love affair with your backpack, or any other piece of your gear, takes time, effort and sometimes just doesn’t work out the way you had hoped when you started out. Usually it starts out promising, with the excitement of new beginnings but as you spend quality time together things begin to cool as you discover the nuances and flaws to the design and it just isn’t really what you were looking.
Very much like people, backpacks and gear usually cannot be changed from what they are. As far as back packs go, up until now it has been for the most part one size / type / configuration for everyone with all the pockets, zippers and compartments in the same place and little to no customization options. There’s an option to just start over and find another brand or manufacturer to see what their set up is. Or you can get a new one custom made with a unique and different design, if you are will to fork over big bucks to have one custom made.
That is up Until now.
