Patagonia Black Hole Pack 25

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is the 25 liter Patagonia Black Hole Pack which is the smaller of the two Black Hole packs (the other is 35L). Like all of Patagonia's Black Hole line, the pack material is durable and water resistant. The pack is just the right size and has smart features making it a versatile day pack. Likes Sleek and simplistic design: The fabric is burly and water resistant and has not shown any wear since I've had it (since fall '14). What sets this day pack apart is it has one main compartment with a… Full review

Goruck GR1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very well made and reliable ruck. This product will last you forever... period. If it doesn't, send it back to the factory in Montana (MADE IN USA!!) GORUCK's products are guaranteed with their SCARS promise, and they WILL make you a satisfied customer. I had to return one of mine after absolutely thrashing it for two years of carrying excessive loads, dragging, traveling, throwing, mudding... you name it, I did it. The shoulder strap started to come loose from the body, they replaced it no questions… Full review

REI Flash 18 Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars I got my first one of these when they first came out and would still be using it if it hadn't been stolen out of my car. I use this constantly in and out of town. A full hydration bladder makes a great back panel to cushion your back from pokey things like crampons (inside a crampon bag of course) or stove and teapot. I would load this with gear for early morning/breakfast hikes. Survival kit, stove and teapot, extra layer for taking extended break to eat, and Z-rest pad sits it on. I used stretchy… Full review

Millet Radikal 32

rated 5 of 5 stars Great little climbing pack. Enough room to spend a night out rough and to bring all your toys with. Stable enough for climbing and biking while fully loaded. pThe first pic is of the ice axe system, particularly the straps and cover for the pick.Pic 2 is the helmet carrier strap. It unfolds from its own pocket on the top lid. For these pics I loaded the pack with what I would normally take out for a winter day in the mountains. A 40 degree synthetic bag, a space blanket/tarp, crampons, a small stove… Full review

Kelty Men's Impact 30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great pack for long day hikes. I use this pack for all day hikes. I also use it for all my winter hiking/snowshoeing trips. The panel loading is great for stuffing bulky items like winter layers and such. The suspension really transfers the load to your hips and keeps your back cool. The waist belt pockets are large enough for a small camera (or cell phone) and energy bars. The map pocket is nice too. The sleeping bag compartment is way too small for my summer bag but I use it for my emergency kit,… Full review

Deuter Futura 24 SL

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Cómodo para caminar en trayectos donde la temperatura es muy alta. [Comfortable for walking on paths where the temperature is very high.] I also have the Future 20. As option for bigger trips more days I bought this backpack to make an excursion three holidays in my beloved country Colombia. After use of the backpack I can say the following: 1. Like its companion (Future 20 liters) is very comfortable to walk and allows for ventilation, which is observed in the trips made with higher climes to… Full review

Swaygo Push Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars The Push Pack by Swaygo is a completely waterproof, nearly indestructible day pack that proves once again that anything big companies can do, cottage manufacturers can do better. The Push is ideal for cavers, canyoneers, white water rafters, and anyone in need of a durable, waterproof pack. A recent article in Outside Magazine inspired this review. Outside ranked the “best” waterproof packs. Swaygo's line were not included in the list—cottage vendors are rarely acknowledged by trendy mags. Full review

Granite Rocx The Cascade

rated 4 of 5 stars The Cascade is an all-in-one convenience pack that delivers on many levels. There is ample storage and multiple compartments to store everything you need, including a cooler that attaches to the outside of the pack. Perfect for day trips to the water or the mountains, the Cascade is a pack that can be used year round, regardless of where you go. Who: Granite Rocx is a company based in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, that specializes in making functional and unique backpacks that are perfect for any day trip. Full review

Osprey Tempest 30

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfy, light day pack with all the features I could want. I just got this day pack after owning the Osprey Ariel 55 for ten years and loving it. I wanted a smaller day pack with the same wonderful women's shoulder harness. This little pack does not disappoint. It is just as comfortable and adjustable as the larger pack and carries more than you would think. Fit: Fits great. Designed for women's shoulders. I have a long torso and I like that the length can be adjusted easily with the Velcro inside… Full review
