    This was great to see---and it seems that the Smart Alec needs more "rounded" things than "squared off" things! But I wish the smaller packing would go a bit slower, or we can "see" more clearly what is going in first, second, etc., A bit slow motion would not hurt. The packing list helps but....

    Ishiro was sooo good to stand there!

    Very informative packing for a hike, presumably overnight.


    Darcy and Scott could you add a still picture, with captions describing each item, at the beginning of each packing video?


    I second Shiva who says that the content is difficult to distinguish at regular speed.

    Totally. And it's not like I was off camera with a bag of treats or anything like that...

    LOL... If I had treats near my dog for that long, she would have cycled through most of her tricks, including sit, shake, high 5, high 10, and down.

    Really wish you had shown a few seconds of the person standing still with the backpack on.

    One general problem with TB is that it's very hard to get an idea of how big your bags are in use, as your photos & videos rarely show people actually wearing/using your products.

    It would be great if you would add still pictures of the same person (or persons, ideally of different statures) wearing each of your products. (Some other bag companies do this!)

    Thanks for the feedback, Mark. Here's a different video about the Smart Alec that you might find more helpful for getting a sense of the size of the bag:
