perfect day pack

i’m a big fan of bags with one pocket to toss everything in and this bag is perfect!

Great pack for going light

Took this pack up a class 5 scramble the day after I got it in the mail. It stayed where I needed it too and didn’t shift around on me which made it feel like it wasn’t there. Super light weight. The pockets, dividers and overall design I think will lend itself well to a variety of uses. Only complaint is that I wish the back panel and straps had like 1/8-1/4” more padding for a little more rigidity, but it’s not a deal breaker and is comfortable enough as is.

Great & Comfortable

I'm so happy to have gotten this pack. It's the perfect bullet pack for multipitch climbs, quick day hikes, or another additional pack to add to multi-day backpacking trips. Highly recommend.

Great little pack

This is a great little pack for any lightweight adventure. I use it for light and fast hikes to bringing it with me up a multi pitch sport climb, with just room for a puffy, water, and snacks.

Excellent Day Pack, light and feature rich

Bought for a trip down Coyote Gulch in southern Utah and it was the ideal choice. It held a 3L water bladder, snacks, light camp stove, 2 mtn house meals, headlamp, first aid kit and more. I wish BD had better product photos and descriptions b/c there are features not listed. It has an internal water bladder pocket and hose pass thru, two side sleeves and one of them has a velcro pass thru with tethers for treking poles, the other is great for quick access to the size of a 20oz water bottle. My gripes would be 1) the sternum straps are clasps, so adjusting them is finicky. Set and forget. One came off on the trail and my friend saw it fall, otherwise it would be lost forever 2) the over the top cinch is hard to do with just 1 hand. You have to create space under the black loop to get the hardware on. BD should put a pull tab on it like they do on the Cirque 22 ski vest.

Solid and lightweight

I have been using this pack for multi pitch climbing and for alpine day push and it’s great. Resistant against the rock and easily foldable.

Solid mini backpack

Great upgrade from a drawstring bag but not to a full size backpack. Lightweight and comfortable to bring around for various activities
