catatan #31: review Gregory Muir 24

Muir24


Tidak banyak data dan referensi yang dapat digali mengenai daypack/ backpack keluaran pabrikan amerika, Gregory ini.

dari website resminya, www.gregorypacks.com, tak banyak detil deskripsi mengenai backpack ini. diproduksi pada musim gugur 2009, gregory muir 24 merupakan jawaban atas kebutuhan tas yang mumpuni. mumpuni untuk digunakan sehari-hari, juga mumpuni untuk dibawa ke alam.



tujuannya jelas, pabrikan gregory mendesain tas ini agar pengguna dapat menggunakannya baik untuk diluar ruang, berkeliling kota, atau untuk travel. karakter tas ini sudah terlihat saat melihat kompartemen dobelnya, bagian interiornya dapat digunakan sama baiknya untuk laptop maupun sistem hidrasi. keunikan lainnya adalah sabuk pinggangnya dapat dilipat jika tidak digunakan.



jadi jika anda suka dengan tas yang dapat dipakai sehari-hari ke kantor, namun sekaligus bisa untuk liburan akhir pekan, yup! tas ini sudah mengcovernya hehehe...

di Indonesia, keberadaan gregory muir 24 bisa dibilang langka. jangan keberadaan, silahkan surfing dan riset di internet, bahkan mesin pencari sekelas google pun tidak banyak menyajikan informasi mengenai tas ini.

gregory tipe muir ukuran 24 liter ini datang dengan 3 sampai 4 varian warna dan mayoritas diproduksi oleh pabrikan gregory di asia. di jepang dan beberapa negara di asia tenggara, kita dapat dengan mudah menemukan keberadaan tas ini. baik pada punggung pengguna, ataupun informasi di dunia maya. sayangnya, informasi tersebut menggunakan bahasa lokal, bukan internasional.






35 tahun berkarya di industri pembuatan tas, Gregory telah berulang kali menyabet gelar tas terbaik dari beberapa media luar ruang internasional.

saya terbilang beruntung bisa mendapatkan daypack ini, mengingat statusnya yang langka itu hehehe...
lewat akun pertemanan facebook, saya menemukan seseorang yang melego barang ini beserta beberapa barang setipe dan se-merk. pertanyaannya mengapa saya memilih daypack ini? semata-mata karena saya memang sedang mencari sebuah tas untuk dipakai sehari-hari, dan juga memiliki kemampuan untuk saya bawa ke alam sewaktu-waktu. saya akui saya beruntung mendapatkan daypack ini, meski dengan mahar yang cukup membuat mata istri saya terbelalak ketika saya beritahu. namun seiring berjalannya waktu dan saya jelaskan tentang produk ini, ia mulai dapat menerimanya walau sesekali meledek saya.



bila saja saya dapat sedikit meng-quote perkataan Jon Krakauer dalam bukunya Into The Wild, (sayangnya dalam bahasa inggris nih hehehe);

“I'd like to repeat the advice that I gave you before, in that I think you really should make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. 

If you want to get more out of life, Ron, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty. And so, Ron, in short, get out of Salton City and hit the Road. I guarantee you will be very glad you did. But I fear that you will ignore my advice. You think that I am stubborn, but you are even more stubborn than me. You had a wonderful chance on your drive back to see one of the greatest sights on earth, the Grand Canyon, something every American should see at least once in his life. But for some reason incomprehensible to me you wanted nothing but to bolt for home as quickly as possible, right back to the same situation which you see day after day after day. I fear you will follow this same inclination in the future and thus fail to discover all the wonderful things that God has placed around us to discover. 

Don't settle down and sit in one place. Move around, be nomadic, make each day a new horizon. You are still going to live a long time, Ron, and it would be a shame if you did not take the opportunity to revolutionize your life and move into an entirely new realm of experience.

You are wrong if you think Joy emanates only or principally from human relationships. God has placed it all around us. It is in everything and anything we might experience. We just have to have the courage to turn against our habitual lifestyle and engage in unconventional living.

My point is that you do not need me or anyone else around to bring this new kind of light in your life. It is simply waiting out there for you to grasp it, and all you have to do is reach for it. The only person you are fighting is yourself and your stubbornness to engage in new circumstances.” 
― Jon KrakauerInto the Wild
