Remember your bag might seem safe when it’s at the top of the park in a pile of bags but things do go missing so make sure you don’t leave anything valuable in your backpack. If your going to spend the day filming new tricks then take a couple of practice laps and then get straight at it. When you’ve finished keep your backpack nearby or call it a day and head out of the park. You never know who’s watching you and people take advantage of bags being left unattended. I’m talking from experience on this one! These bags would make great Christmas presents too so if your stuck for idea’s then this could be the perfect gift. 🙂
