Finding an affordable backpack that still suits all travel needs can be like searching for a needle in, well, a backpack. But Sherpa Adventure Gear specializes in all-purpose products that meet every storage and toting need, whether you’re looking for your next stylish carry-on or personal item, or just need a sturdy bag for your daily commute.


Sherpa’s Yatra Adventure Pack is a compact backpack that stands out from other outdoor gear with its unique design and identifying colored strap that runs down the middle. Nepalese for “journey,” the Yatra offers 21.5 liters of storage space, lined with Himalayan-inspired printed taffeta. A fleeced-lined laptop sleeve can be accessed from the inside of the backpack or on the side through a clandestine zipper.


The exterior material is durable water-repellant Courdura that resists tears, abrasions and water. A roll-top closure and adjustable belt help secure items inside, which can be stored in multiple organization pockets or in two of the large external pockets with snap-closures. When open, the bag measures 28 inches tall by 12.5 inches wide by 5.25 inches deep, and weighs 25.4 ounces.


The Yatra Adventure Pack can be purchased on Sherpa’s website in black or Thaali Camel for $79.95. With each purchase of a backpack, Sherpa donates a children’s book to a student in Nepal.

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.
