The first pack-able backpack of its kind [giveaway]

In my family, we like to go hiking with the dog just about every day. We typically bring water, poop bags, and a couple snacks. I'm not a fan of carrying things while I walk around though.

Enter Matador.

Matador started a few years ago in a San Francisco bedroom where they stumbled on a trend - people sitting outside on their coats and lugging bulky blankets across town to parks and beaches. As we often do, they thought there has to be a better solution, and that's when the Matador Pocket Blanket was born.

Matador up! Let's hike.

What started as a pocket-sized blanket that unfolds to seat four people became a passion for designing and developing pack-able (as in collapsible) adventure gear. You probably haven't heard about this, and that's because it’s a totally new category.

Matador's mission is to make your travels and adventures more convenient through high quality pack-able gear. You can find their gear in more than 2,000 stores around the world, and of course on their website.

And then there's the most capable pack-able backpack ever, the Beast28, a technical pack that packs away for travel. It's the first pack-able pack of its kind.

Matador up! Hiking with the dog at Callahan State Park.

What's the 28 for? Perfect for far-flung adventures and destination hiking, its ultra-light design and 28-liter capacity holds enough gear for day hikes and short overnight treks.

What's cool about this pack is that it packs up into a compression bag (included) to save space. When it's stuffed into the bag it's smaller than a football. Check out the size comparison below.

See how small it gets when packed?

It also has waist and sternum straps that are pretty comfortable and didn't bother me at all on a recent hike. I'm a big guy too.

I'm a fan of this pack and I intend to use it a lot more. It's significantly lighter than the only backpack I have (which is really meant for laptops), and I can fit a lot of stuff into it. Whether you need to bring stuff camping, to work, or to the airport as a carry-on, consider Matador backpacks.
