The Stratacous Series RADPAK by MountnGo is designed to be your backpack for life. Made with adventurers in mind, the lightweight bag is both functional and durable unlike any other. It’s made with 900D ballistic nylon so it can withstand anything the world might throw at it.

 

Traditionally used in military apparel, 900D ballistic nylon sets the RADPAK apart from its competitors by making it virtually indestructible. I mean, it won’t stand up against a hurricane, but it also won’t be brought down by a mere tumble down a hill. It’s packed full of features every outdoor traveler could use. The pack boasts a honeycomb neoprene backing that is both breathable and sweat resistant, along with a reversible rain fly that can be used to hold shoulder and waist straps.

 

RADPAK also contains an integrated external USB connection, snowboard and skateboard carrying straps, molly webbing, D-rings and a water bottle mesh pocket. There’s also a handy security band that connects to the roller bag trolley for smooth sailing through airports. Best of all, it’s TSA carry-on compliant. Inside, there’s easily enough room to hold enough gear to last you weeks on the road.

 

The RADPAK is set to retail for only $170. Shipping has already begun, so check out the website for more information on features and ways to order one of your own.

Dealing with FOMO When Studying Abroad

The Fear of Missing Out greatly affects students who study abroad. For months students look forward to the countries they will call home, whether for a semester or a year, and then after they arrive, the loneliness and separation sets in. It’s difficult to be away from family and friends for a long amount of time and studying abroad is no exception, no matter how badly a student wants to fall in love with their city.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Taking It Back to Basics at Ghent’s Gruut Brewery

Breweries are everywhere today and, while many craft and microbreweries specialize in particular styles of beer, few are quite as specialized as Ghent Gruut Brewery in Ghent, Belgium. Here, the current craze for hop-heavy India Pale Ales is entirely eschewed as absolutely no hops at all are used in the brewing process. Before you clamor to claim this can’t be beer at all as everyone knows the four ingredients of beer are grain, water, yeast, and hops, consider hops weren’t actually added to beer until the 13th century. Before then, all beers were flavored with herbs and spices, or gruut, as the French population of medieval Ghent called them.

Honeymoon in South Africa

For many couples, honeymoons serve as a once-in-a-lifetime luxurious trip, often fulfilling a bucket list destination or experience. South Africa is one of those places. The country offers a variety of experiences, whether you want a relaxing or adventurous honeymoon.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
