Three months of planning are finally coming to an end, and I have a good news to share with you. I am going for a 50-DAYLONG-BACKPACKING TRIP this summer. To add to it, I would be exploring most of the India and keep you posted on the same.
Now comes the time of shopping, and the very first thing that any backpacker should be putting in the shopping list is definitely a decent pair of shoes. So, my search started and eventually I ended up by ordering Salomon X-Ultra Blue outdoor shoes from Jabong.
This is not the first time that I am using Jabong for shopping. I often shop online and I think this has been the best value for money deal ever [Read till last for the reason]. Why Jabong? Jabong has got a good collection of International brands, much better than the other Indian shopping websites.
I was a bit disappointed when it came to packaging of the product. Other websites provide an additional box covering to give extra protection to the item in the box.
Why I chose Jabong for my last order of three winter jackets was because of the heavy discount that this site offers. This time too, the discount was rather beyond my expectation. I got the shoes for 3250 INR, which is 50% discount. Jabong has definitely received some brownie points for the discounts and the wide range of collection part.
Personally, I loved the interface of the Jabong website. The White & Black interface is similar to what I’ve used with Urban Rabbit, and then there are the products making the website colorful. The products are sorted in a good way, and there are many different ways to look for a product, be it brand-wise or category-wise. Jabong loses some points for the packaging but earns some brownie points for discount and the large stock of apparel that they offer.
More about Backpacking: Backpacking is the outdoor recreation of carrying gear on one’s back while hiking for more than a day. Personally, being a solo backpacker is one kind of an experience.
