Remember in the Gilmore Girls revival when Lorelai tried to recreate Wild? When she opened her bag, all of her gear spilled out and it was impossible to fit her stuff back in. We love Lorelai, but we don’t want to be like her (at least in this scenario!).
Our brand-new Good Times Collection will help you carry everything you need this summer while still keeping your belongings organized. Phew! These bags are water-repellant, cute, and they’ve got multiple compartments so you can find anything. No need to spend forever searching for sunscreen or hair ties. Plus they’re made from recycled fabrics, so you can feel good about what you’re carrying around all day.
So which bag is right for you? It depends on which kind of adventurer you are.
Best for Camping
The Far Out 65 and Far Out 55 feature a roomy top-loading main compartment with a drawstring closure, so you can bring whatever you need. Plus a special bottom compartment makes it super easy to get your sleeping bag in and out. You’ll be grateful for the easy access at the end of the day when you’re ready to crash, trust us.
These Far Out 65 and Far Out 55 models also come with a fully removable lid with a large zippered compartment. This feature is great for when your bag is overflowing; you can use the drawstring to close it and the lid will make the bag taller to give you extra space. And if you’ve got tons of bigger items—say, trekking poles or a pillow you simply can’t live without—you can use the laser cut lashing points and bottom adjustable strapping to carry more loot.
Bonus: These models also come with the Forkastic Camp Tool, a removable aluminum stay that provides back support and doubles as a multifunctional tool once you set up your tent for the night. Think: It could become a s' mores maker, bottle opener, wrench, fire poker, giant fork, or something else entirely. The options are endless.
Best for Day Hikes
If you are looking for something a little less all-encompassing than the big camping bags, the Far Out 40 might be for you. This bag doesn’t come with the removable lid, so it’s a little smaller and better for a shorter trip. (That said, it still holds a full-size sleeping bag and the Forktastic Camp Tool, if you want to take it on a longer journey.)
For smaller items, you can use the zippered external loft pocket and there are dual side zip pockets too. This one also comes with double stretch mesh pockets for your water bottles and there’s a sleeve for your laptop or a three-liter hydration system. There’s even an emergency whistle on the sternum strap, just in case.
Best for Beach Days and Music Festivals
The Good Times collection includes more than just backpacks. Our insulated Chill Pack holds 40 cans and 6 pounds of ice, making it essential for a hot day under the sun, whether you’re hanging by the water or listening to your favorite musicians at a festival. Your drinks are sure to stay cold, thanks to the double-thick insulated base and leak-proof liner. And don’t worry, there’s a bottle opener included—everything you need to quench your thirst all day long.
