Realizing the need for a multi-use pack that rules the streets and mountains, Burton created the Day Hiker Backpack to cater to your adventure-fueled lifestyle—without sacrificing functionality for the daily grind. Its vertical board carry and hydration-compatible laptop sleeve facilitate easy hiking when you're scouting fresh lines beyond the lifts. Mesh water bottle pockets provide convenient hydration on day hikes and cross-town jaunts, while the front-zippered pocket offers a convenient spot for stashing everyday items, such as your wallet, phone, and keys. Additionally, you'll appreciate the super-comfy ergonomic shoulder straps, with removable waist belt for extra support with heavy loads.

Does the Job
The bag has 4 pockets, one for lenses (soft lined as well), 2 water bottle holders, and the main pouch. The water bottle holders hold the typical 16 oz, vending machine water bottles, but are probably not big enough for any sizable canisters such as a 32 oz nalgene. The big pouch is big enough for my food, water, and extra clothes, and sits nicely on my back, the waist buckle is easy with mittens on, but the chest buckle is difficult to get with my mittens on (I can do it, it just takes a while because the buckle is kinda small). Overall nothing glaringly wrong with the bag, haven't carried my snowboard in it though so I don't know how it does with that.
What you would expect
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought this pack as a gift for a friend who took a birthday snowboarding trip to Austria. He's very happy with the quality and style of this backpack. It holds everything he uses for a day on piste and is what you would expect from Burton.
Lots of storage room without being bulky making this great for day hiking or just traveling back and forth to work. The pockets help keep you organized which I love. I have only used it on a couple of occasions so far, but first impression is that it is very durable. I bought this in the toxin bonded color and the color shown is spot on.
