Good afternoon everybody,
For this video, I unbox and show a new backpack I just received and which replaced my last, very recent, Patagonia Arbor rucksack pack - the Metrosafe LS450 by Pacsafe.
For those of you who watched my last unboxing video of the Patagonia Arbor backpack, I ended up returning it. It looked nice and all, with its’ classic looks, lash tabs, and simplistic design and functionality. But, I just felt too uneasy with the way it operates; specifically, with it having no zipper at all for the main compartment. I also felt it was too loud in appearance with not one, but 7 (lol), faux-leather “lash-tabs” throughout (which I am sure I will never use anyways). I just thought it screamed “mountain expedition time!!!” if worn in a densely populated city. The big fat Patagonia tag smack dab in the middle-front of the pack was also a little attention prone. It also lacked decent padding (important for me, since this will be mainly a pack for my electronics). Lastly, for cons, there were too many straps dangling everywhere (overhangs from the waist, shoulder and main-compartment tie-down straps). A couple things I did like about it though, was that the face material was a nice robust and tough canvas and also its’ shoulder straps were slim and minimal. Other than that, and only that, I couldn’t justify keeping it. The many cons simply outweighed the few pros, imo. So, I returned it and replaced it with this here Pacsafe backpack.
This is my very first Pacsafe product I’ve owned. Up until only a month or two ago, I have never even heard of the company. I was made aware of it by random YT travel vloggers (I enjoy watching those kinda vids), with an occasional video here and there where the travel vlogger recommended and praised Pacsafe products. After noticing more and more vloggers mentioning Pacsafe bags, it was only natural for me to further research them. And, after much reading and consideration on which new backpack and brand to get, I was sold. They seem to be one of the very few companies that have legit security features on their bags and at the same time being relatively affordable. After much self-debate, I narrowed my choices down to a few and ended up with the Metrosafe LS450 backpack. This will be used as a daypack, electronics bag, travel “personal item” bag, camera bag, grocery and shopping bag, etc., etc.
After playing around with it some and thoroughly inspecting it, I am truly impressed. I am impressed by its’ aesthetics and stealthy looks (sure beats looking like a hiker with the Patagonia Arbor in downtown), all the security features, nice build-quality, ample padding throughout, and the list goes on and on. This backpack is easily the best backpack I’ve ever owned in my life (mind you, I’ve only owned cheap Jansports all my life, and then the Patagonia Arbor briefly, which again, I returned after a few days of owning it). For the money, this LS450 feels worth it; but not so much for the Arbor.
