All the water you need for a day in the mountains.
The Mountain Hardwear Fluid 12 Backpack keeps you hydrated in the mountains whether you're running on the trail or hopping boulders off the trail for a day. The soft shoulder straps feature Power Mesh ventilation to help keep you cool on warmer days, and Mountain Hardwear made the pack out of nylon ripstop dobby to keep it durable and as light as possible. It features a stowable waist-belt for a secure fit when you need it, an easy-access hydration sleeve (reservoir not included) with ports on the left and right sides for your convenience, and compression straps that provide a close fitting suspension to keep everything snug against your body while you run. The top pocket has a fleece lining to keep your sunglasses and smartphone scratch-free, the zippered front pocket is perfect for snacks, your wallet, and keys, and two deep side pockets can carry extra water bottles or other gear.

Perfect for a day on the trail
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I needed a smaller pack for quick out-and-back hikes and this is ideal for me. It's big enough to hold a bladder, shell jacket, and snacks without feeling like it's too large. I used it last week on a hike up to Grandeur Peak and it performed just as I hoped. There's plenty of adjustment in the straps and it's quite comfortable. If you need something small for day hikes, this is an excellent choice.
Great day pack
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Perfect size for a day hike, live the color and it's really comfortable!
