It’s Friday, and that means it’s time to share ShopWiki’s Product Picks of the Week!
Kelty Redwin Backpack - Described Below
Take advantage of fall’s gradual cool down to enjoy some time out and about. Whether you’re looking forward to a hiking day trip, a drive to visit relatives or just meeting up with friends for lunch, it’s important to take advantage of the weekend as much as you can. After Columbus Day, you won’t have a lot of free time until the holiday season, so make the most of the time you do have!
All Packed Up
Long before you head out the door, it’s important to make sure your bags are all set. Even if you’re more of a “reading your iPad at your in-laws house” kind of weekend traveler, it helps to have a bag to tote as your must-have emergency entertainment. That’s why this week, backpacks are our Product Picks of the Week! Take a look at some of our favorites from The Houseboard Shop and Eastern Mountain Sports!
Picks of the Week
Before you can buy a backpack, you need to know how to get a good fit. EMS.com has a helpful video on the subject:
Our camping backpack pick? The Kelty Redwing 44 Backpack (pictured above) works well as a multipurpose pack, getting you through weekly commute and then helping you hit the trails early Saturday morning.
A commute friendly removable waist belt for a lighter load during the work week.
The backpack is Redwing hydration compatible for longer trips that require a water source.
An easy access front panel: a must for camping and air travel alike.
Convenient carry handle, ice axe loop and mesh water bottle pockets make this a perfect grab and go bag no matter what the situation!
Day trips call for backpacks with lots of pockets; you”ll quick and easy access to all your gear without digging around too much, whether you’re reaching for an energy boosting snack or a first aid kit.

Kids need a bag for their hobbies and weekend hang outs too! And no one is immune to the charms of a panda backpack. The EcoZoo Cotton Kids Rolling Backpack is among the most kid friendly, letting kids drag their stuff behind them rather than straining their backs as they do during the week.
