Gear Review – Gateway Front pack

Categories:Backpacks | Gear | Gear Review

Gateway-frontpackThe Gateway front pack by Seek Outside is like having a fanny pack but instead of having the belt attach around your waist the pack connects to your backpack.
Plenty of room for a drink, snacks, camera, and maps.

There is a drink holder compartment with a pocket and a zippered section that is divided with a small organizer inside.

My first impression was that it was smaller than some of the other front packs that I have tried and it was also not incredibly easy to use.  The pack came with no instructions and when I contacted the company about it they sent me to a video of a guy wearing the pack and talking about how great it was. Nothing was said other than you just hook it up or something to that affect.   The product is not water proof but it is made up of ripstop nylon so it does have some water resistance to it. It seems rather durable and could hold up to some heavy use.

Overall I would not see myself using something like this but it might be good for on the go parents or someone looking for a a little extra storage space and quick access to gear.
