Great for traveling
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Love to bring this pack with me when I travel! It's small enough to count as a "personal item" for TSA so you can bring this AND a carry-on onto the plane and can also pack away neatly if need be! Great for little excursions in or out of the city!

Great little pack for light loads
- I've used it several times
The Speed Lite series is my go-to for any activity, and this littlest in my collection is great for a short hike where you just need water, a snack and light extra layer. It's like hardly carrying anything at all! The shape of the pack is comfortable and the shoulder straps are just the right balance of padded and still lightweight. You wouldn't want to carry too much weight in it but that's not what it is designed for. If I'm carrying a "full size" day pack I go up to the 30 or 32 liter which is perfect and designed to carry more. This is perfect for a quick errand on my bike, trail hike or job, or short day hike is moderate conditions. Love it!

Perfect Daypack for Short Trips
- I've used it several times
This has quickly become my go-to daypack for very short trips. If you're doing a hike under 2-3 hours and need just enough room for a spare jacket, a water bottle and some small items, look no further. I also use it for lugging around our dog's things (harness, extra leash, food and water bowls) and it's perfect. It's also become my travel bag as a "day of" arrival type bag. I'll use a large duffel as my primary suitcase and stick this bag in the duffel to use to carry around small things as we're walking around or for going to the gym.
