Clakit and Keep Moving

Durable Pouches Safeguard Valuables

Top Travel Gear 2018 and 2019
Two of my favorite outdoor recreational activities are hiking and fly fishing. Some days, I don’t want to lug a heavy backpack or fishing vest. The Clakit strap and pouch ranks high on my Top Travel Gear 2019 list. You’ll find the system extremely comfortable and convenient for outdoor activities. 

Are you tired of rummaging through your backpack in search of that one item you need?

My 2018-2019 top travel gear pick goes to Larry Schessel, Clakit founder.
I’m not downplaying the importance and usefulness of backpacks. But when I hike or jog, I don’t want to rummage through my backpack every time I want to use my phone.
Larry is an avid hiker and traveler and while knapsacks serve a purpose, he says, 
“They (backpacks) are great for carrying things on your back. But they are inconvenient for accessing gear you often need, like your smartphone for pictures, water and snacks.”
Top Travel Gear 2018-2019: Clakit
Carry your cell phone and other important items “under your nose.” ClakIt travel pouch will securely hold your smartphone, money, passport, etc.

Clakit gets my vote for top travel gear, best outdoor gadget, and travel accessory for two years in a row because I use the strap and pouch often and it’s incredibly durable and convenient.

The idea for Clakit was born while Schessel hiked in the California mountains. Getting his hands on items he needed from his backpack was a laborious task.

“Every time we needed something we had to stop, take off our backpacks, search for the item and repack – whether water, smartphone, map, wallet, snack or permits,” Schessel noted.

Backpack storage problems Solved

Schessel designed The StrapPackTM by Clakit to solve his backpack storage problems by allowing easy access to valuables. Secure yet accessible pouches easily clip to your backpack’s front shoulder straps, so you can safely stash your belongings within sight and reduce the risk of theft. For folks who don’t want to wear a backpack, Schessel offers the Clakit Strap System ($14.95). Patented nylon clips secure the pouches to the strap system for a lightweight alternative to a pack.
Accessories available are the Smartphone Pouch Bundle ($19.95), Pocket Pouch Bundle ($14.95), Water Bottle Pouch Bundle ($14.95), Adjustable Utility Pouch Bundle ($19.95) and Two-Zipper Pouch and Clip Bundle ($19.95) and the Water Bottle Pouch Bundle ($19.95). The options are endless and the price is very reasonable and affordable.
I’ve sampled the Clakit strap system, clip and the Smartphone Pouch Bundle while walking our recently rescued Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd pup. We take one to two-mile walks almost every day and as you can well imagine, he’s very energetic and strong. I was at a loss for a safe, convenient pouch or fanny pack to carry my cell phone and keys. The Smartphone Pouch saved the day.

Ideal for your commute and travel adventures 

Keep your valuables “under your nose” while commuting or traveling. StrapPackTM pouches allow you to have eyes on your belongings and help to prevent theft.

Schessel says, “Storing gear on the front pack straps just makes more sense.”
