Massive Travel Bag Review: Minimalist Backpacks & Gear from Aer, Bond, and Wandrd

Many of you have asked me what bags I use to travel or in my everyday carry. In this video I’ll be showing you my favorite travel bags and pouches from Aer and Bond Travel Gear. For all the bullet journalists watching, I also have a review and inside look at the Wandrd Travel Journal.

This is obviously a little different than my normal videos, but I love using and reviewing travel bags, backpacks, and really anything you can put things in. I also believe the care and intention we put in to our journals, thoughts, and ideas can be transferred to what gear we choose to carry our “bujo tools” in.

I mention this in the video too, but it bears repeating in written word. I love to travel with one bag, not only for how much easier it makes the actual travel (no checked bags anyone?) but because of how it forces me to think about what I travel with.

With a large bag or roller I can bring so much with me. I don’t have to think or consider what I’m packing. If I think I might need it, toss it in! With one bag travel, I have to think a lot more and be much more intentional about what I bring with me.

To me this fits so well with the bullet journal ethos. To put care and thought into what I choose to “bring with me” during the day and what I choose to leave behind or save for next time.

Like I said, this is a different video but I hope you still like it. Let me know what you think in the comments! I also timestamped the different reviews so you can hop around and watch what you want. It’s a long video too.

  1. Hey everyone, have been looking forward to sharing this video with you! I know it's a little different, but I did it for two reasons.
    1. I love using and reviewing bags, backpacks, really any kind of sturdy physical product. Can't get enough!
    2. I also believe the care and intention we put in to our journals, thoughts, and ideas can be transferred to what gear we choose to carry our "bujo tools" in.

    Let me know what you think of the video and if you get worked up about bags and everyday carry like I do! 😃🎒🧳

  2. 🎒 Very cool…I love your Bujo EDC videos . 💪😍👍💓💗💖
    21:43 I am an ORGANIZATION FREAK I love them cube bags….do you have any packing cubes, that have a good clear labelling system/color labelling system on them. ❓❔

  3. Hi Matt,
    I have made many changes in the last 30 to 60 days I have done away with social media I have stopped watching the News it has been such a freeing and amazing experience. Beginning the first of April I started a form of bullet journaling in the digital format thanks to an app called Bear. I want to thank you for being an inspiration for me start this journal.

  4. Great video and showing how you "actually" use it.
    Really refreshing look compared to all the other "bag review" sites / videos.

  5. I love the bond pouch set you got, especially the color of the inside of the pouch one. I’ve been thinking of a new carry on, but I don’t know if I want something that rolls or something on my back. Since I’m only traveling back and forth from Denmark to back home, in the states, I’m not sure the journal is really needed. Maybe I should look into traveling a bit more around the EU

  6. Hey, can you do some budgeting/finances in bullet journals video? I want to be financially responsible but I'm currently struggling 😂
