The Hoboroll by Gobi Gear: A Product Review


The Hoboroll Inside View

Today I received my Hoboroll by GobiGear in the mail and I have to say I am really impressed!  I’ve always had a problem trying to figure out how to pack my clothes into my backpack all while making sure it took up as little room as possible.

When my Hoboroll is fully packed and compressed, it’s around the same size as an average rolled up sleeping bag which is great because saving space is a very important factor to me.  I save almost half the space by using this product!  As for portability, it’s really up to as to how you want to carry it.  There is a built in carrying handle / shoulder strap that you can use, you can strap it to the bottom of your backpack if you have the available attachment straps or you can place it directly in your backpack.

For those of you who want some specifications, the Hoboroll is 15″ long by 10″ in diameter, weighs 3.5 ounces and has a capacity to hold 19 liters.


The Hoboroll packed away!

As for myself, I keep the Hoboroll in my backpack as I like to keep all my items together and have them completely protected from the elements.  It’s actually the last thing I place in my backpack so when I need an article of clothing I just open my pack and pull it out – it’s that simple!  You can also organize your clothing to keep the clean separated from the dirty.

This is such an ingenious product it makes me wonder why I didn’t think of something like this myself!

Some of the key things that I love about this product are that it reduces your packed volume by up to 50%, has five storage compartments to organize your clothes, is made of high quality material and even has a carrying handle / shoulder strap to carry it if you wish.  There are also integrated loops / straps on the outside of the bag enabling you to attach other items.



Check out Gobi Gear’s video below to see how easy it is to organize your clothing into the Hoboroll:


All in all, this product deserves a 5 out of 5 in my books and if you are looking for a better way to organize your clothing and keep it as compact as possible then this product is for you!  Order yours from Gobi Gear today, you won’t be disappointed!

I received the Hoboroll for free from Gobi Gear for review as coordinated by Deep Creek Public Relations in consideration for review publication.
