    Hikelite 26L Backpack

    You might feel like those speed hiking fast-and-light days are behind you with the advent of having to use trekking poles in order to give your knees a break, but you can still strap them to Osprey's Hikelite 26 Backpack and relive your golden days on the trail's mellower sections. The backpack's AirSpeed suspension cushions, ventilates, and wicks moisture away when you work up a sweat, and it dries quickly when you're back to the grueling steepness.

    • AirSpeed back panel provides cushioning and ventilation
    • Rain cover and hydration compatibility keep water where it should be
    • Top pocket is scratch-resistant for electronics or sunglasses

    Great Pack!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This backpack is the perfect day pack. The frame is supportive but not obstructive. The straps are comfortable and do not rub, even on bare skin. Easy to adjust to the user, and extremely comfortable. I got the turquoise color, and it looks even better in person! The material is durable and stays relatively clean for what I put it through. I would recommend this to someone looking for a good hiking pack or just a durable day to day pack.

    Hikelite for the win!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used this pack for over a year and absolutely love it! For it being only a 26L I can fit so much gear in it. The vented back panel really helps with keeping me cooler than my other traditional day-packs do. I shopped around a lot before purchasing a new day hiking pack and really this one was full-featured and includes a rain cover as well as being equipped for a hydration system. It also has built in safety whistle on the bottom strap. I abuse this pack and get it pretty dirty and it wipes down to look clean each time. I don't think the photos on the site do it justice.

    HikeLite 26 Takes on Sedona

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I took this pack on a recent trip to Sedona where I guided women on three separate hikes. It was the perfect pack; I could fit snacks, extra water, a first aide kit, cell phone, extra jackets and sunscreen into this small but mighty day pack. It fit me like a glove and with it's amazing ventilation system, I never got sweaty. Each hike was a different journey and this pack held out for rock scrambling, river crossings and canyon hiking. Great overall pack
