Deuter AC Lite 22

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great everyday bag that can suffice for a light overnight backpacking trip. This has become my go-to bag for day hikes, car camping, fishing, and anything between. It carries all of my essentials in comfort with the Air Comfort back and even a 3L Hydrapak reservoir. It can even double as a short backpacking pack if you are a minimalist or use ultralight gear.  Full review

Deuter ACT Trail 28 SL

rated 5 of 5 stars I love my 28L pack and cannot wait for more adventures to come! Bring it on, Nepal! The fit is incomparable to other packs, especially in the chest/hip area. Fits like a glove! #Deuterforlife Full review

HackedPack v.1.1

rated 3 of 5 stars HackedPack’s Hammock Backpack is a combination hammock and backpack. HackedPack’s durable nylon backpacks include lots of pockets. I've used this on a few light weekend outings. It's OK if you have a small sleeping bag you want to use with the hammock. If you strap on the outside it works. A 25L capacity. There a nice hip belt and the packed weighted down rides fine on your back. Nice huge parachute nylon hammocks are triple-stitched to hold up to 500 lbs, aluminum gate clips are rated to 20… Full review

Osprey Kestrel 28

rated 5 of 5 stars Packs great. Plenty of loops to hang extra items outside the pack. Included rain cover. Easily adjustable hip belt. LOVE THIS PACK!! After giving my old daypack to a friend, I felt lost without something to take its place. I have heard a lot about Osprey packs and thought I would do some research. So far, everything I have found has held up. This pack is the perfect size for single night trips, day trips, plane carry on... I use it for everything. I have lent it out to friends doing single night… Full review

Deuter Futura 26

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight and durable pack, good for camping as well as longer backpacking trips. Rain cover is excellent for inclement weather. Recommended for general use. Brought this on a three-week long backpacking trip through rural China, and it held up excellently through all kinds of weather. It was monsoon season and the rain cover was very helpful and dried quickly. I have previously used it on several camping trips while climbing mountains. The pack is slightly tall for me (I'm 5 foot 2 inches in… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Summit Pack

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I wanted a small light daypack and this one had the benefit of being watertight (until it ripped). I've been using this small day backpack about once a week for 1.5 to 2 years, mostly lightly packed with a few items for work etc. I purchased this pack because of the cuben fiber material which is a lightweight material with the added benefit of being watertight. This pack is made of cuben fiber laminated with a thin layer of woven nylon fabric which makes it as heavy as many of the daypacks on the… Full review

Gregory Cirque 30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great sturdy daypack with versatile pockets. I've put this pack through the ringer on many day hikes and scrambles.  I like the large top pocket and the main compartment is roomy enough for everything you'd need for a day hike. The hip pocket is handy too. I rarely use the long pocket on the front, but it is surprisingly roomy. It will only do for day hikes though. I tried packing it for a quick overnight and my sleeping bag took up the entire main portion.  The straps are comfortable and don't… Full review

Granite Rocx The Cascade

rated 5 of 5 stars Best backpack for the beach and 1\2 backpacking Best backpack, nice fitting for comfort. Large compartment, cooler, leakproof. Full review

Osprey Skarab 32

rated 4 of 5 stars A rugged, roomy pack for day hikes, with a lot of attention to detail, but the omission of a quick disconnect for the hydration reservoir as a standard feature is a frustrating flaw. There’s a lot to like about this pack, but also one annoying omission. I’ll do the bad news first, then talk about the pack’s better points. But first, here's a pretty picture of the subject stolen from the web: A Glaring Omission The hydration reservoir lacks a quick disconnect—but Osprey will be happy to sell… Full review
