Win 1-of-3 Kathmandu Packing Cells Perfect For Backpackers

In celebration of my birthday today, I wanted to give you guys a gift  instead of me getting them all because that wouldn’t be fair would it?!  So, I have teamed up with Kathmandu and they were kind enough to give me 3 of their NEW compression packing cells in either Azure (blue) or Magenta (purple), you get to choose.  They retail at $39.98 each!

What is a compression packing cell and why would I need one?

A compression cell  compacts your luggage so you can fit more in.  Like the video below, you put your clothes into the cell and then zip the top.  Once it is closed you then open the valve and push down on the pack releasing any air that’s trapped inside!  If you’re a backpacker with not a lot of room in your backpack then this is perfect accessory to have! It is really good to compact those big feathery jackets too! Watch the video below to see how it works.

Kathmandu has been my favourite brand ever since I started travelling when I was 19.  I brought my big 70L hybrid backpack from there and 18 countries later it is still in good condition.  I highly recommend their products because they are super high quality.

How to enter: All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me where in the world you would love to take your compression packing cell using the #AnitasKathmanduCompetition.  Would you take it backpacking through India or on your travels to Madagascar?  Tell me below and you’re in to win!

    Just starting to think about taking some major time off after my current contract finishes and travelling through Central America! This would be so perfect.

    Such a tricky one, but I would take it to Norway! If I don’t make it there, this would be perfect for my trip down to Queenstown later this year! Ohh love that it comes in magenta purple too! #AnitasKatmanduCompetition ?

    A compression cell would be brilliant for us to take our toddler more places in NZ and then to the skies for a family adventure to Europe.

    I would take it on my girls weekend in Barcelona. Thanks to great timing I am in the UK just at the right time for a weekend away with 4 besties. We are only taking cabin baggage and this would mean so man more things to wear.

    I would take it on our upcoming RTW trip for myself, hubby and three boys. Hopefully it would bring some organisation to our chaotic packing style! #AnitasKatmanduCompetition
