Now we typically stickto reviewing larger, one bag travel backpacks, day packs, slings, and items of clothing when it comes to video reviews, but this time around we wanted to showcase some of our highest rated products that we've never featuredon this channel before, and these are all itemsthat we ourselves use on a day to day basis.
And better yet, everysingle one of these products have been fully reviewedover on our website, packhacker.
com, wherewe go pretty in depth, and you can find our overall rating and best buying options too.
We'll leave the individual review links down in the description below, so make sure to check them out.
And if you're new tous here at Pack Hacker, please consider subscribing.
So, without further ado, let's dive into someawesome travel products.
(upbeat music) First up, part carabiner, part clip, Heroclip, of which we have all three sizes.
The medium here, which isactually their largest size, the small, and also the mini.
Heroclip's founder formed the idea when she needed an extra set of hands while hiking with her children, but there are a milliondifferent use cases for them.
For instance, if youattach one of these things to the top handle of your bag like this, you can then swing this hook out here, and use this to hang it up.
Now, this comes in surprisingly handy if you're somewhere likean airport bathroom, where the only other option isto pop your bag on the floor.
You can also use a Heroclipto hang your bag or sling on a table when you're out and about too.
And of course, these thingsalso just work as carabiners, which have a milliondifferent uses themselves, like clipping your water bottle to the outside of your pack.
Though just note thatHeroclips are not designed to be used for climbing.
Honestly, if you're lookingat buying a carabiner, we think you might as welljust spring for a Heroclip, and get that extrafunctionality and versatility that they bring.
And at the time of this video, we actually have apromo code with Heroclip through our Deals Vault, which you can gain access to by signing up to our newsletter.

(upbeat music) Next up, these Tom Bihnpadded organizer pouches, both protect and organizegear inside of your pack.
From a first glance, these things look likepretty ordinary pouches, and to be honest, they are, but there's just somethingabout these things that we really like.
They feel great in your hand, and because they are padded, you know that whatever you putinside is going to be safe, and that's just a great feeling to have.
They're available in four different sizes, micro, mini, small, and medium, which offer an excellentvariety of different use cases.
We've got the mini, which holds our foldable Rove sunglasses, and the small, which canhold most smartphones, aside from the Plus and ProMax sizes.
These things really are ideal when you're traveling with electronics and other delicate items.
And although we wouldn'tnecessarily recommend traveling exclusively with these things, because for their size, their capacity isn't anything special, they are a great additionto your pouch collection.
(upbeat music) If you're fed up withbulky and jingly keys, then you ought to take a look at the KeySmart Original Key Organizer.
Sure, there are fancierand flashier key organizers on the market, but this thingis as simple as it gets, and we actually really like that.
Plus, it still doesexactly what it needs to, which is holding your keys together in a streamlined case, that saves space and allowsquick and easy access.
And it weighs next to nothing too.
Keys can be attached to either end, and to pop a new one on, simply unscrew one ofthe screws, like this.
This can swing open, and then simply attach a new key on.
Then pop that back into place, and simply screw this oneback down, just like that, and it's all surprisingly straightforward.
We also like the attachment point here, so you can attach anything that won't fit inside the key organizer, like a car key, or a fob, with the use of a carabiner.
We'd recommend a key organizerto pretty much anyone, and the KeySmart Originalis a great choice.
(upbeat music) The Thule Subterra Powershuttle Plus is a tech pouch with enough organization that you can fit small SD cards, and full sized headphones.
In fact, there's so muchgoing on inside of this thing, let's just dive straightin and have a look.
Let's start by first unzipping it.
As you can see it's a niceclamshell design here, and then inside we have on the left, if we start here, we've got a pouch, little sleeve at the back, which is nice.
We've also got a zippered mesh pocket, which for the moment, we'vejust got some Apple Air Pods in, but that's nice to putyour little smaller items.
We've got some little places here, so you can pop your cables.
We've got a nice pen little sleeve here, which is always nifty to have.
And of course, moving onto the right side, we've got your full size headphones.
We'll just pop them outthe way for the minute.
We've got a little kindof mesh compartment at the bottom here, which is done up with a little button, which is nice.
For the moment, we've just got some, you know a little Apple mouse in there.
Pop that back away.
Then we've got two additional pockets at the back here.
We've got a little SSD at the back here, and the other one has got a power bank, and that's because, if you can see here, there's a little hole here which you can actually passa power bank cable through, pop your phone in here, and it comes out here, and you can charge your phone, even though your powerbank is still inside, and that's actually pretty cool, but mainly, if you've got afull sized pair of headphones, this is a really great pouch.
Now some tech pouches go really simple, and just have an empty space for you to throw a load of stuff inside, and other ones can go alittle bit overcomplicated, and have loads and loads ofsmall little tiny compartments, for absolutely everything.
This thing is somewhere in between, and we must say the organizationis probably just right for most people.
The bottom line is, the ThuleSubterra Powershuttle Plus is a great tech pouch, and if you plan on traveling the world with a load of tech gear, you can't go wrong with this thing.
(upbeat music) Available in three different sizes, these humangear GoTubbs canbe opened with one hand, and provide a great place forsmaller items during travel.
You may not think that being able to open these things with one hand is that big of a deal, and neither did we until we first started testing them, but we've been surprised athow often it's come in handy.
We found the small sizeto be great for earplugs, chewing gum, and coins.
The medium for jewelry, hair bands, and smaller bars of soap, and the large for SD cards, USB sticks, and small bites whenyou're out on the road, like nuts and dried fruits.
If you're not sure what size to pick, we'd recommend the medium, as it's a pretty good balance, and our go-to for most items.
If, like us, you'reconstantly finding small bits and pieces laying around that need a home, these super versatile containers are a great choice.
(upbeat music) An ideal spot for credit cards, travel documents, coins, and a passport or two, the Fjallraven Passportwallet is a great accessory to travel the world with.
Like all Fjallraven products, it's crafted with durable fabrics that feel great in the hand.
And it's pretty easy on the eye too.
Plus, it has a thoughtful interior that we'll run through right now.
So we'll start just byunzipping it all the way, just like this, and then you can see inside.
So first of all, we've got these fourcredit card slots here.
Then just below we'vegot this ID card slot.
Then on the right hand side, you can see we've got thislittle zippered compartment, which is great for coins, any little tiny objectslike that, it's perfect.
Then just behind, we'vegot two passport sleeves, so one on the left, andthen one on the right.
So this is a really solid passport wallet, if you're traveling withmore than one person, as a couple, or as afamily, anything like that.
And then at the back, we've also got a little compartment here, where you can put money, more passports if you want, and also, you know, anytravel documents there.
Now, the G-1000 material in this thing does pick up dust a littleeasier than we'd like, but the truth is, youreally can't go wrong with the Fjallraven Passport wallet.
(upbeat music) You may or may not haveheard of Stasher bags, but let us tell you, theyare a real game changer.
TSA compliant, packable, and reusable, these things are a greattravel friendly alternative to single use plastic bags, and they're great to usearound the house too.
They're perfect for snacks, toiletries, and even tech if you so wish.
Plus, they're dishwasher safe, so they're easy to clean.
We love how they're available in a variety of sizes, styles, and colorways, and we even made aquick look video on them over on our Pack HackerQuick Hits YouTube channel, which is where you'll findrundowns of the newest gear, product comparisons, pocket tours, and quick look reviews.
If you like this video, and you're into what we dohere over at Pack Hacker, we'd highly recommendsubscribing and checking it out.
(upbeat music) If you've ever searchedfor a travel tripod before, you've more than likely comeacross the JOBY GorillaPod, and that's because, well, they're a great product.
They come in a wide range of sizes, all of which we breakdownin our full review, over on packhacker.
com, and they can be used inthree different ways.
First, you can use themas a traditional tripod.
Second, as a grip to hold your camera while you're out and about.
And finally, as a wrapping mount, so you can attach your camerato pretty much anything, if you can wrap the legs around it.
The flexible legs can takea little while to master, but these things have really impressed us with their versatility, practicality, and durability too.
Not only are they a great size for travel, but they've also enhanced our creativity, and if we're travelingthe world with a camera, or even just a phone, we're more than likely carryingone of these things as well.
(upbeat music) The durable and sleekMystery Ranch Zoid Cell is a fantastic place to keepyour delicate items safe, like a small camera kit for instance.
And that's exactly howMark here at Pack Hacker has been using this thing, and still is at the timeof shooting this video.
Like most Mystery Ranch products, this thing feels incredibly well made, and we've really been digging it.
It's a nice size that will fit comfortably into nearly any bag, and let's have a little look inside.
So first of all, we have tounclip this little buckle, and that opens up likethat, which is really cool.
And then opening up the main compartment, with this long zip, wecan take a look inside.
Now there's really nothingfancy going on here.
It's just a large pouch, but it's got some nicepadding on each of the sides, and we really enjoy using it, because of its simplicity and versatility.
And then on the side, ithas got one external pocket, which is this zipper alongone of the sides here, and that's just for putting any little bits youneed quicker access to.
You zip this up, and seriously, our favorite thing about thisis the speed zipper from YKK.
It sounds a bit silly toget that excited about it, but it's one of the bestzippers we've come across.
Not everyone will be able tofind a use case for this thing, but if you can, we'd reallyrecommend picking one up.
(upbeat music) Finally, let's take a look at these Topo Designs accessory bags, which have become a real go-to item for us here at Pack Hacker.
They're available inthree different sizes.
We have micro, small, and medium, and you can get them in a wide range of different colors as well.
And to be honest, Topo Design sums themup perfectly themselves on their website, by saying, “Our utilitarian accessory bags allow you “to organize all of your cables, chargers, “pens, notepads, and other essentials, “and stop them from ending upat the bottom of your bag.
” Now these things don'toffer as much protection as the Tom Bihn padded organizer pouches we mentioned before, but you can fit more stuffinside of them for their size.
So selection of bothprobably isn't a bad idea.
And at the time of shooting this video, just like Heroclip, we have apromo code with Topo Designs, through our Deals Vault that you can gain access to via signing up to our newsletter.
