Wikibuy partnered with bloggers such as myself for this program. I received monetary credit for my time, creativity, and SEO platform. I was not told what to purchase nor what to say about any product mentioned in these posts.

For the past year and a half, I had been searching for the ideal backpack for travel and work. I had romanticized the concept of buying a military backpack. A year ago, I even mentioned my trip with my son to Nashville’s Army & Navy War Surplus store.
I wanted something that was rugged, understated, and practical. When I did find one that came close to my idea of what I believed I was looking for, it was a bit more than I was willing to spend.
But all my dreams came true this week when the folks at Wikibuy reached out to me and offered me a $75 credit to spend on anything I wanted, in exchange for spreading the word about Wikibuy and including a link back to their site.
Wikibuy operates as a website and Chrome extension that finds you the best deals across the web on products you already are looking for. They don’t sell the products, they just match you with the best prices.
I immediately agreed, yet I figured most of the 75 dollars would go towards the backpack. Fortunately, I was way wrong.
Not only was there free shipping and no tax, but the total for the Reebow Tactical 3 Day Military Assault Backpack was just $33.99.
That’s amazing because all the other bags I had found on my own were easily double that amount. With the remaining stipend Wikibuy gave me to promote their website today, I ordered a backdrop to start using for my YouTube videos. You should start seeing it displayed in my upcoming videos within the next couple of weeks.
So, back to my backpack; it is everything I was looking for. It’s perfect for my needs.
Our family travels from Tennessee to California (where my wife is from) once a year. This will be my carry-on. I can easily toss it under my seat on the plane and not have to deal with awkwardly stuffing it in the overhead bin.
And as opportunities are increasing for me as a freelance writer and videographer for other companies, this backpack will easily store my equipment; including my laptop and tripod.
I am not a suitcase kind of guy. I prefer everything to be compartmentalized and easily accessible. To me, that’s an important element in how men are wired.
This backpack is an extension of my identity.
Of course, I will point out the underlying irony that a “family friendly” daddy blogger is promoting a “military assault” backpack.
Oh well. The only “weapon” I’ll be hauling in it to “shoot” anything with will be my Canon PowerShot G7 X camera.
Yeah, I got jokes too.
