Gray Large Rucksack Backpack by Just Porter

Talk to any frequent traveler and you will quickly learn that travel gear can make or break your travel experience. Just as a chef is dependent on his kitchen equipment, and mechanics rely on their tools in the garage, travelers bank on the quality and functionality of their gear. Which is why I am pleased to share my NEW Rucksack Backpack from Just Porter with you. Not only is this a high-quality backpack, but it is also incredibly functional, comfortable and convenient. Plus, when you purchase a backpack from Just Porter you partner with them in giving backpacks to children in need too!

Gray Large Rucksack Backpack Review by Just Porter

As soon as I cut the orange tape on the Just Porter box and reached inside to grab my new backpack I fell in love. From the durability of the waterproof material to the accessibility lent by the roll top and the endless functional pockets found both inside and outside this bag makes the Rucksack Backpack a fantastic choice for travelers and commuters alike. Not to mention it’s adorable too. The image below shows you the Rucksack Backpack at it’s largest capacity. Note that it can be rolled down to a smaller size and it appears larger on my 5 foot frame than it does on the average person 😉

But, wait that’s not all… Just Porter was born out of a heart for giving back. Founder Chris Baher was doing some humanitarian work in the Philippines where he happened to come across a poor school in a rural area. He went to a local market to purchase school supplies and returned to the school to pass them out. From this bore his 1/3 idea. It’s more than just then 1 for 1 give back scheme that we have come to know and love.

When you buy a rucksack backpack from Just Porter they give a bag to a child in need full of school supplies. It's their get a bag, give a bag program!

The 1/3 means you purchase 1 backpack and Just Porter will

  1. Go to an area and hire a local bag maker,
  2. Fill that bag with school supplies purchased from a local vendor, and
  3. Give that backpack full of supplies to a child in need.
