Being in the travel business, I seem to find myself on the road more and more. Packing for long trips is fairly easy: I pull out the large suitcase, pack it up, and go. Packing for a short day trips or even short tours on my longer travels can be a real hassle. I tend to carry a Sackpack or Gymsack type of bag for this; my problem with it is there is no separation for articles I bring and no way to make the bag more compact when I only have a few items. The HOBOROLL, a Kickstarter project from Chez Brungraber, solves those problems. The HOBOROLL is a small nylon stuff sack with five internal compartments (think of the inside like a pie chart) to allow you to keep items separate and accessible. The HOBOROLL has drawstring openings on each end allowing easy access from both sides, outer radial compression straps so you can compress the bag, and a zippered compartment that allows the HOBOROLL to be stuffed inside of it and easily stored when not in use. The HOBOROLL is 11″ x 14″ and weighs 2.8 ounces. It currently comes in two color choices. This project has several pledge options, with a pledge of $35 getting you a HOBOROLL of your color choice. This project is seeking funding thru August 14, 2014, and if successfully funded, will start shipping in the March 2015 time frame.
