What do you leave your house with every day? Keys, wallet, book, medication. And if you’re going away for the weekend? Add a change of clothes, second pair of shoes, toiletries, devices and their chargers. And if you’re going into space? Wait. What? You’d think you’d need to take more, right? But no. NASA’s Personal Preference Kit is 5″ x 8″ x 2″. Yeaaaaah. Sorry, NASA, but that’s just not going to work for us.
Those of us who are earthbound fortunately have more options. Take this Constellations Backpack, for instance. It has 15 times the area of NASA’s PPK but is still super-portable. Navy blue with screenprinted constellations and silver piping, it has a decorative metal Ramsden sextant on the outside as a tribute to navigating by the stars. And, of course, it has a laptop / tablet pocket inside main compartment since we know you don’t leave home without it.
