Sometimes, even a dedicated nature photographer like me just wants to stop and smell the roses…without taking pictures of them.
In that spirit, MIU COLOR claims its company promotes the “slow life,” a more relaxed, eco-friendly, unhurried existence. Among the wide range of products they offer through their worldwide distribution system, the new MIU COLOR Packable Handy Lightweight Nylon Backpack Daypack serves as a nice option for those occasions when you want to go out for the day without a bunch of camera gear.
Fashioned from durable nylon, the MIU COLOR daypack is as handy and packable as its elongated name implies. Spacious when open (12 x 16.5 x 6.3 in.), the backpack folds easily to a very flat, compact size (9 x 5.5 in.) to fit in your other luggage, making it a convenient bag to take along as a light alternative to your main gear bags. Its carrying capacity makes it an ideal backpack for a day trip, with just enough room for snacks, a light jacket, flashlight, sunscreen, and other essentials, including pockets for two water bottles on the outside of the pack. The breathable mesh shoulder straps make the backpack comfortable enough to tote all day. My wife Autumn wore this backpack when we went hiking in Sequoia National Forest, and she was able to carry everything we and our two dogs needed for the entire afternoon.
True to its name, the MIU COLOR daypack is available in two brilliant hues, an electric blue and a neon green. The eye-catching colors and the reflective patches on either side of the pack ensure the bag is easy to spot, so you and your fellow hikers can keep track of one another in thick forests and oncoming drivers can see you on dark, winding roads. If you get caught in a light drizzle, the water-resistant fabric will help keep the bag’s contents dry, another feature that makes this a nice outdoor pack.
So the next time you feel like communing with Nature rather than snapping photos of it, consider taking along the inexpensive and well-made MIU COLOR daypack. Let’s all enjoy the “slow life”!
