What Worked and What I Forgot For My First International Stage Race
Main travel bag: The Beast Gear Hauler by Orange Mud ($100)
This sucker is huge, has minimal bells and whistles, and gave me plenty of confidence. I packed my smaller bag (which is huge itself) in the Beast, along with my shoes, sleeping bag, food, and everything else I needed. Nice!
There are no pockets, no extra compartments, just raw, secure, space. It’s made of some type of un-rippable material, is essentially waterproof, and the zippers are huge. Nothing worse than blowing a zipper, and I didn’t have that fear. The straps are made of seatbelt material and are meaty, though weren’t long enough for me wear on my back.
Bonus: Bright orange makes it easy to find in luggage claim. And yes, it complied with size requirements for all airlines I’ve used (domestic, international, and inter-Indian.)
