For the October Contest, Hiking Lady has partnered up with GobiGear! GobiGear was founded by a full time botanist who travels the world in her spare time…recent trips include treks in Africa and Asia! She certainly knows a thing or two about efficient packing 🙂
The GobiGear HoboRoll is a lightweight compression sack that is intended to help you organize and protect your gear while adding a mere 3.5 ounces to your pack weight. I have yet to try one, but it looks like a neat invention!
- Dimensions: 15 inches long x 10 inches diameter (38cm x 25cm)
- Weight: 3.5 ounces/100 grams
- Capacity: 1160 cubic inches/19 liters
