    Take a break from the city.

    Summit towering peaks, traverse dicey ridges, and squeeze in afternoon treks with Hyperlite Mountain Gear's fully-featured, ultralight Daybreak Backpack. Weighing barely over a pound, the Daybreak boasts a surprising 17L capacity suitable for a day's worth of food, water, layers, and even climbing gear. Hyperlite acheived such a phenomenal light weight by building the pack out of Dyneema, a material used in climbing gear for long-lasting durability.

    Despite its light weight, the Daybreak is incredibly comfort, with padding at the back panel and shoulder straps, as well as a waist belt that stows away when you don't need it. The front pocket doubles as a hydration sleeve for your reservoir, and the internal sleeve doubles as a laptop sleeve for casual days. There's also a removable attachment system for ice axes or trekking poles, and a zippered internal pocket for valuables and electronics.

    Perfect for day hikes

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just took this on a 13-mile hike up Mt. Timpanogos and back, and found it to be the perfect tool for the job. The outside front pocket accommodates a 2L water bladder with ease, and the two side pockets hold another water bottle and/or whatever other small things you might need quick access to. There is one small inside zipped pocket for ID/cash, etc., another larger internal pocket, and otherwise there's just one large area which easily held two jackets (one puffy, one light), a first aid kit, a hat, and sunscreen. The pack itself is quite light and the chest and hip straps work great to keep it stable and in place.

    Great daypack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    A well thought out designed backpack. It is not the cheapest backpack out there for a reason. It is just a great, very well made pack and I would buy again.
