Built for the canyon and the classroom.
Thanks to its comfy Anvil Airway back panel, hydration-compatible sleeve, and dual-panel loading design, the Mountainsmith Red Rock 25 Daypack is equally at home in the classroom or out on the trails. Whether you're packing a stack of books or a mess of climbing gear, the V-style compression straps and removable webbing waist belt help to keep the load balanced.

- Webbing strap waist belt keeps the pack close in so the bottom doesn't sway, and the belt can be removed when you don't need it
- Dual-panel loading design is great for the trail or carrying books to class
- Hydration sleeve with a hose exit port allows for convenient thirst quenching (reservoir not included)
- Vertical-access stash pocket is ideal for a rain jacket or extra layers
- Interior organizer sleeve allows this pack to perform as a book bag

Good hiking pack, but not for EDC
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Purchased this pack for everyday carry, but found a few things in the first day of use that I didn't care for. 1) The compression straps get in the way of accessing the two main compartments. Especially if you have to get in there frequently. 2) The organizer sleeve is lacking and doesn't provide quite enough pockets for my EDC stuff.
As for a day hiking bag it works great and it is my go to pack for that job. I ended up purchasing a North Face Jester pack which is a much better EDC pack.
Great pack but
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
This pack seems great, but I have 2 problems with it.
1. As a woman (it may feel different on a man) it sat oddly/uncomfortably on my shoulders, enough so that I noticed right away when I was filling it with all my stuff and just prancing around the house to see if it was comfortable. This to me was enough to return it. No use in having a pack thats not right.
2. The material (duramax nylon) was such that I felt if you had anything damp in the pack or got the pack wet at all it would not take long for it to start to smell. Im assuming it would take a while for it to dry if you got rained on too.
Other than these problems it seemed to be a great bag. Lots of usable pocket space and separate areas to put things, I was able to fit my 2L hydration pack, a days worth of food, hygiene stuffs, extra shoes, 2 days of clothes and my large Northface board jacket. There are lots of ways to fit all your things, 2 mesh pockets and lots of clippable/strapable space on the outside.
The waist straps are good enough to keep the pack from bouncing around, however dont expect them to add comfort or distribute weight. Also the hole for the hose of my hydration pack is smack in-between the shoulder straps and that was odd for me, I prefer them to be on the side a little.
All that being said I would recommend this pack to any hiker who finds it comfortable!
