The Millican Smith Utility Pouch delivers on durability, simplicity, and versatility. The Bionic® Canvas fabric is one of the best we’ve come across, and while the rolltop opening may not be as quick as a zipper, it has performed well for us in real-world testing. It does have a lack of internal organization, but if you’re after a minimal pouch that does its job well, this is a great piece of gear.

The Arc’teryx Blade 28 is a solid one bag travel pack for the ultra-minimalist or a weekend pack for everyone else. It’s a good bag with excellent build quality, solid materials and ample packing space, but we were hoping for something that would set it apart from the competition—and, unfortunately, we didn’t find it. In particular, we were disappointed with the laptop compartment and lack of hip belt or sternum strap.

We’ve been impressed with the way Peak Design has thought through every little feature on this pouch, and it easily ranks as one of the most functional toiletry bags we’ve tested to date.
