Whatever you’re toting, carrying or packing, Thule has a vessel for you. From rooftop carriers to sports racks to backpacks, Thule specializes in getting your stuff from A to B so you’ll always have what you need. Thule’s line of backpacks ranges from hiking sacks to biking bags to snowboarding bags, with the Versant backpack measuring as one of the most versatile.


The Versant backpack comes in both men’s and women’s varieties, tailored to each gender’s unique anatomy and comfort needs.


A waterproof-lined bottom keeps the bag protected from the wet ground during rainy weather, while a removable VersaClick rolltop pocket serves the same function but to protect items inside the bag from rain above. Even with the rain cover over the bag, slide pockets are easy to access, and the top lid converts into a sling pack for shorter hikes.


Additional accessories include the Thule VersaClick Safezone Pocket, which can keep electronics protected from rain and snow, as well as a VersaClick water bottle sleeve that attaches neatly to the backpack.


The Thule Versant backpack comes in three sizes: 50 liters, 60 liters and 70 liters, which cost $239.95, $259.95 and $279.95, respectively. The bags can be purchased on Thule’s website and are available in black, green, blue and red, depending on the size.

Tips for A Once-in-a-Lifetrime Visit to Germany

Sundays are for rest. Germans are not usually out and about bustling with their businesses as Americans do on a Sunday. There are usually only a few establishments open on Sundays, like museums around German cities.

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.

Review: La Palette, Paris

This historic café-restaurant is found in the Saint German neighborhood, not far from Notre Dame cathedral.

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.
