Small pack, big rewards
Like many, I've been needing a smaller pack for hikes that did not require a larger backpack. This is super lightweight, packable, and works great for traveling. Plus, the colors are super great too!

Great lightweight daypack or travel pack
I bought this pack to take on trips where I would need a light packable daypack for day hikes. Last trip to Austria I found myself wishing I had a smaller pack than my travel backpack to take on some shorter day hikes I did. So far this has fit the bill! It’s very light but good volume and also packs down small in my suitcase. Excited to take it on more adventures !

Super lightweight, minimal day pack
Great backpack for a range of adventures! This bag is super packable, and lightweight. I really enjoy bringing it on longer trips, as it fits in my duffel really easily, and doesn't disappoint on day hikes.

Very light weight and easy to fold up and pack away. Makes a great pack to stash away for when you unexpectedly need a pack. Comfy when wearing it as well!

Anywhere and Everywhere Pack
Everyone needs a light daypack like this one. It is so handy you have no idea what you are missing. Sometimes a standard daypack is just too much... This is super light, can roll up very compact if you need and fits everything you need for a day at the rock gym, hike, office, or casual overnight. Just enough pockets to not lose tiny things in the main compartment. Padded and breathable back mesh.

Awesome - barely felt it at all
Super lightweight option - with a sleeve for a water reservoir. I was able to fit a fair amount of things in here too: rain jacket, oranges, phone, and also a friend's jacket. The hip strap was helpful, the chest strap cut across my chest in a slightly odd way, that I had to adjust a couple times, but nothing too major. I do wish there were one or two more pockets inside as I like to stay more organized, but for a lightweight day pack, I'd say it's a great option.

New Go-To Daypack
Well, my boy just made fun of me saying "so you've gone 100% backcountry now huh?" After a week straight of using this bag every day, it's become my new commuter pack. It's super lightweight but still has a laptop sleeve in it so you can actually use it for everyday things when you aren't out adventuring as well as bring it with on a trail. I wish it had a few more pockets for organizational purposes, but glad it has the outer loops to clip on carabiners etc.

Great light weight day bag

Easy to open, easy to carry
The cinch to the main bag is super easy to use. Pull one to close, pull the other to open. Perfect amount of space and weight for a day hike. Was able to bring water, snacks, treking poles, microspikes and a rain coat easily. Hardly felt it on my back.

Easy to keep with you
Throw in some water and a snack and you're always ready for a day hike. Large enough to swallow most anything you'd need for a day outing, and light/small enough that you won't hesitate to keep it with you.

this backpack is perfect for a day hike it is light weight and has good storage. There is good back support and sufficient padding which adds to the comfort and makes it great for carrying something heavy as it keeps it’s shape and support. The front straps are very functional which help support and spread out added weight. It’s simple and efficient with a single main storage area with just one division, as that is all you need.

I got this for after-work uphill ski laps at the resort. It's light and low-frills--perfect to haul uphill, then throw my skins in for the descent. (We're talking skiing on a groomer, so no need for a touring pack.) It is great quality and just what I needed.

Is this pack waterproof?

What size hydration bladder does this pack use?
February 17, 2020
Hi Matt - this pack is meant for short day hikes so a smaller bladder would be more optimal 0.5-1L.

Is there a “hook” for a hydration pack and how does the tube exit the pack?
August 9, 2019
Hi Melisa, There is a small velcro loop above the hydration sleeve for the bladder and the tube exits just above that to the rear of the pack. The tube will emerge just above the grab handle on the rear.
