Innate Mentor Organizer Sacs Review
For the active person that is into traveling, it is common to want to find the lightest and smallest gear so you can carry more with less weight and less bulk. I’ve been testing out the Innate Mentor Organizer Sacs over the last few months for traveling to see how they stand up to the active travelers needs and wants.
When traveling, I like to wear different outfits on most days depending on the length of the trip and whether I will have access to a washing machine. While I might carry more than the typical minimalist backpacker, I still like to keep my load light and/or compact. The Innate Mentor Organizer sacs help in that they allow you to put your clothes in the bag and push out all the air, similar to that of your typical traveling plastic bags. The difference of these bags compared to the Innate Mentor Organizer Sacs is that the Innate Organizers are roll tops similar to a dry bag that you would take on a rafting trip, although they are a little different.
The seems in the Innate Mentor Organizer Sacs are welded, so there is less chance for water to leak through compared to most dry bags that are sewn together with taped seams.. The material in the Organizer Sacs is made of 30 denier rip stop nylon with a laminate on the inside for waterproofing. The outside is treated with a DWR for added water repellency. While traveling in Costa Rica with these sacs, I didn’t notice any liquids getting in or out of these bags and the same goes for the smells. I ended up using the Organizer Sacs to keep my small dirty laundry apart from my clean so all my clothing wouldn’t stink.
The Innate Mentor Organizer Sacs have a plastic window where you can look into the bag to see what contents are inside. If you end up having too much stuff, the window can get blocked by one piece of clothing when compressed, but if you have less, it is easier to see inside. In case it is super important to know what is inside, there are labels on the outside of the sacs where you can write what contents you have inside.
To multipurpose with the Innate Mentor Organizer Sacs, you can take these out backpacking or camping to store your food in. Dry bags are good to use for backpacking as I tie a rope around the handle and sling it over a branch where it is out of reach from a bear. The downside is the fabric is a little lighter than most dry bags which means it won’t hold up to hitting lots of branches all the time. From time to time, you should be safe.
Overall, I found the Innate Mentor Organizer Sacs to be super convenient and handy while traveling and give them two thumbs up.
