Backpacks are a standard part of the load-bearing equipment of soldiers, especially infantry, in most countries, and military-style packs are regularly available to civilians in military surplus stores. Well-known examples include the United States ALICE field pack and the British Army PLCE rucksack attachment, both of which are widely available to civilian markets both as actual military surplus (new or used) and as replicas. Such packs are often, though not always (e.g. the USMC's ILBE pack), external-frame packs, with the pack itself lashed or pinned to a metal or plastic carrying frame. For units that are entering combat situations, packs may be loaded heavily and can weigh in excess of 100 lbs. Each soldier may carry extra weapons, ammunition, rations, medical supplies, tents or other shelter material, and extra clothing.

SEATTLE (November 27, 2018) – This Giving Tuesday, Thirty-One Gifts and World Vision are partnering together once again to double the impact to those in need. The company will match every donation to World Vision on November 27th with up to $2 million in product, helping families around the world with items to keep babies warm, deliver medical supplies, and keep girls in school.
“We’re honored to be involved with World Vision for the fifth year in a row,” said Wendy Bradshaw, Executive Director of Community Affairs at Thirty-One Gifts. “We’ve been very pleased to see our products used to assist people who are in need around the world – whether it’s survivors of a natural disaster, refugees, or children in poverty. It’s our pleasure to help more individuals and families in need everywhere through our donation match. We are hopeful many people will double their donation through this match on Giving Tuesday.” https://i.pinimg.com/originals/03/28/be/0328bea4e3ca58149d95008747900974.jpg
The last item I received was the Key Fob. It makes it easy to just ‘throw’ my keys into my bag. It has a round key ring on one end and a clip on the other. I carry mine clipped to each other (the clip is clipped to the ring) to form a ‘bracelet’ to slip on my wrist if needed or to clip to my purse. My husband and I switch vehicles often, so it also makes it a lot easier to remove or attach the car or house keys. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/e5/08/ec/e508ecd0c24747e3103b62e5ff4b28f5--shay-mitchell-style-shay-mitchell-makeup.jpg?b

In addition to their use in outdoors pursuits, backpacks are sometimes used in other sports as well. Hydration packs, sometimes used by athletes and military personnel, carry water (in either a bladder or a rigid bottle) and have a tube connected to them from which the wearer can drink without removing the pack; this feature is also included in some more general-purpose hiking backpacks. Backpacks that carry skateboards have also become more popular in the youth culture. https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/40/53/c1/4053c1017776c828e0a9c5885485eaee.jpg

Specialist backpacks are used by fire services for wildfire fighting, as well as by rescue services for Search and Rescue. These backpacks are generally very modular, allowing the pack to be reconfigured to the users wishes and are designed to load around the wearers hips. They may include features such as sections for water bladders and specially designed pouches, such as those used to carry personal fire shelters. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/cd/2e/2f/cd2e2fabbd184e9cd04b5dcaac354063---gifts-thirty-one-gifts.jpg?b

The external frame is typically made from aluminum, other lightweight metal alloy, and recently reinforced synthetic polymers or plastic and is equipped with a system of straps and tautly-stretched netting which prevents contact between the metal frame and user's back. In addition to comfort, this "stand-off" provides the additional benefit of creating air circulation between the frame and the wearer's back. For this reason, external frame packs are generally considered to be a "cooler load" than internal frame designs. External frame packs have a fabric "sack" portion which is usually smaller than that of internal frame packs, but have exposed frame portions above and below the sack to accommodate attachment of larger items. In addition, the sack can often be removed entirely, permitting the user to customize the configuration of their load, or to transport a non-conventional load such as a quartered game animal. Military packs are often external frame designs due to their ability to carry loads of different shapes, sizes and weights.
I found this particular item so interesting because there are so many ways you can use it. Thirty-One consultant Annmarie Sayyarath showed a way to use it on her Facebook page as an ‘entertainment center’ in the car with an iPad on the top and other different activities in it to keep your child occupied during long trips. I’ve also seen where you can use it as ‘diaper central’ with your diapers and wipes stocked in it, a first aid kit, to hold snacks, etc. You can also use it for “mama stuff” like jewelry, accessories, makeup and toiletries while traveling. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/7c/4d/71/7c4d718d06ef60da2368d38ed1c3ead3.jpg

Finding the perfect 31 Gifts product in a color or pattern that clashes with your style is a big letdown - but it’s a problem that never needs to happen when you view the 31 Gifts catalog. With several different prints available for each item, even your base selection will reflect your style preferences! From there, embroidered personalization adds initials, names or phrases, allowing you to pick even more options - thread color, font, symbols and more - to truly personalize your product. Thirty One Gifts’ collegiate line makes a wonderful gift or special self-indulgence for college sports fans, and even Fido can get in on the fun with beautiful leashes that match popular Thirty One Gifts patterns. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/cb/0a/12/cb0a12ebd911a1ced32c2a32d78b3644.jpg
