Adventure Armenia is a capsule of bags developed as a collaborative project including Harry Kazazian, (Owner and CEO of Exxel Outdoors LLC), Serj Tankian (renowned artist, composer, activist, and lead singer of System Of A Down), and Sako Shahinian (Creative Director for Exxel Outdoors LLC). This talented group enlisted HEX to work with the team to bring this collection to life.
The purpose of the capsule is to “shine a light” on the beauty of Armenia and support the local economy through Eco-tourism not only to the cities, but also in the smaller villages and countryside. We have selected the non-profit organization, Hike Armenia to receive proceeds from this project. The organization believes Armenia can become a premier hiking destination by developing hiking infrastructure and sharing the awesomeness that is Armenia with the world.
The bag was better then I expected. Was able to pack a weeks worth of clothes! Also held iPad, charging stuff, Bose headphones in its case and a bunch of other stuff. Only recommendation is to let the pack air out for a few days before you use it. There are some waterproof materials that smell a little rubbery. After a few day sitting open was fine
The quality and patterns of the bag are awesome. Also love the philanthropic aspect of the collection as well. My ONE issue with this is utility. For a bag this size, it should be able to carry/organize more things - better efficiency. And if using 30L worth of space, the bag may need better support. Side pockets can be larger - especially the insulated one - it can barely carry a soda can, not even most reusable bottles fit. All that space for a can? Would've loved to see a larger pocket, or just two equally sized pockets with no insulation that can carry more items. Even with the weakness of utility efficiency, I use this bag at 75% of its capability and still love it. Would buy again. And would love to see this item updated or expanded. The Armenian tapestry design is so beautiful!
Literally the coolest backpack I’ve Owned. Built like a brick and really compact. The only thing I’d change is the key loop strap thing to not be attached to the big Velcro’s pocket. Sorta weighs it down
