What others are saying about Pack Hacker

Pack Hacker consistently delivers on answering all my questions about gear I’m contemplating purchasing or gear I haven’t heard of yet. When I’m looking for honest, thoughtful reviews, Pack Hacker is home. They don’t produce puff pieces about bags, apparel, and accessories in order to sell clicks. They rate gear based on rigorous testing and all the analysis, comparisons, ratings, guides, and recommendations are made by true bag nerds.

I had no travel gear before leaving for my first long-term trip (6+ months abroad). Pack Hacker is the best, most consistent, and easiest resource I’ve found in all my research—and I love how much detail they provide. It’s like having a personal shopper for travel gear!

Alexandra F.

While preparing for a 17 day trip to Morocco, I was at a loss for how to pack. The folks at Pack Hacker helped me prepare for my dream one bag travel trip and the entire experience gave me a massive confidence boost. I’ll never travel any other way again!

Laura F.

I’ve always thought I was weird for geeking out about this stuff but I’m glad to know there are plenty of other people out there who obsess about bags and optimizing their travel system as much as I do. Pack Hacker takes the guesswork and stress out of my bag purchases, helping me find the right bag for my needs.

Minoru I.

Searching for the right pack or travel product has been such a hit-or-miss issue for me over the years. I’ve probably returned (or kept and never used) more items than I’ve actually liked. Especially since buying more online. Enter Pack Hacker to the rescue! Their reviews have saved me so much money and even more of my time.

Nathan G.

I love how Pack Hacker cuts the fluff and gets down to the info—they’ve helped me discover what features I’m looking for in a backpack. And they consider many different types of travelers, which is great when trying to figure out your travel style.

Lauren R.

Seeing unbiased, honest opinions from like-minded travelers helps me decide what gear to pack when planning my next trip. I especially enjoy learning about gear specific to female travelers which can be hard to find elsewhere.
