The North Face Men's Jester

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This day pack has been reliable for the last four years. I can't think of a single negative issue I have had with it. It is an excellent day pack for hiking or travel. I have used this as my go-to day pack for a number of years. At first I questioned the price but managed to find it on sale. It can carry enough gear for most day trips while being comfortable to carry. The only negative issue I have found is that when fully packed the mesh water bottle holders are a bit tight for a 32 oz bottle. Full review

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Dry Daypack 22 L

rated 5 of 5 stars UltraLightweight at 2.3 ounces; fits in your palm! Just purchased from Backcountry Edge: regularly $32.95 but on sale $28.95. Half-moon or U-shaped zipper makes loading easy. Super lightweight and appears durable enough for summit pulls and this will be my go-to pack for section hiking and thru-hikes when I explore around base camp or head to town. Disclaimer: have not yet field tested, so will update review.  Full review

Osprey Mira 34

rated 5 of 5 stars The perfect day pack. This is a Rolls Royce of a pack that rides like a Lamborghini: In it, I put the filled 2.5 L hydration bladder which, btw, is THE absolute best hydration system I’ve ever seen in any pack, bar none, ever, my Crazy Creek chair (in the side stretch pocket) rain layers, extra layers, hat, gloves, Buffs, food for the day, hygiene kit, compass, flashlight, emergency supplies, first aid kit, lip balm, sunblock. And it’s not like I’m carrying this pack, it’s more like the… Full review

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Day Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars Amazing product. Unbelievably light and compact. An amazing product. Always carry one in my Osprey Aether 70's top lid pocket. Surprisingly sturdy for 2.4 ounces. Sized at 20 liters. I backpack in Harriman State Park, and in the warmer months,  the creeks and brooks dry up. No problem, I set up camp, leave the large pack behind, and go for water with the Ultra Sil. It easily carries 5 liter water bottles (2 CamelBak Chute and 3 Platypus soft bottles), as well as my filter and a jacket.  Saw that… Full review

CamelBak Sequoia 22

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great hiking pack with lots of attention to details that matter. There's a compartment for a hydration bladder as well as a pocket for a water bottle. There are several other pockets of various sizes, including generously sized hip-belt pockets. The curved back and soft wide pods allows for ventilation and comfortable carrying. As a person who hikes most days of the week doing trail patrol, leading hikes, and volunteering at our local state parks in Sonoma, I need a technical pack. It has to have… Full review

Osprey Talon 22

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent daypack. Very comfortable. Bought in 2016 for day hikes and travel. Really comfortable for both myself and my wife, who is half my size.  Bought because I was so impressed with my Aether 70, and Osprey always seems to get rave reviews. The hip belt allows you to load this thing down and still be comfortable on a long walk. Also has a water reservoir slot, which I use often. Great little pack. Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Dyneema Summit Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars No way this deserves 5 stars! The fabric is fantastic and the design works for me since I was not looking for anything complicated.  Top closure ensures it will resist a storm but seam tape around shoulder strap stitching is already failing after a single light use. At this price I can’t see how this can be justified. Also, I got mine and it is missing the compression cords, which for me indicates sloppy QA prior to sending it. The seam sealing is the same thing. Fix these issues and it's a winning… Full review

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
