REI Flash 22 Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A lightweight day pack that is incredibly versatile. Great if you want a single pack for many purposes. It's a fantastic, versatile day pack. I'm using it for hiking, day trips to city, hauling around stuff for me and my kid, biking, errands, and travel. It's really light. While it doesn't have a ton of frills, this means that the pack doesn't weigh as much as the stuff you put in it (a problem with many day packs). You can also adapt it to your needs. For example, I bought a cheap cell phone pouch… Full review

Deuter ACT Trail PRO 32 SL

rated 3 of 5 stars I'm returning it. Urgh I so wanted to love this one!   The pack is superb, beautifully made, top materials, they really thought of everything.   Why am I returning it? Because it does not fit me at all: Even though this is from the SL line, meaning "slim line", women specific, I swear it actually fits like a man's pack. The hip fins are not nearly as angled as they need to be and neither are the shoulder straps. I got nasty rub spots on my neck, collarbone and hip.   It's a real shame because… Full review

Osprey Kestrel 32

rated 5 of 5 stars The little engine that could. This pack is superb! I carry a 2 L bladder, extra layers, rain layers, food for the day, map, compass, first aid kit, extra mini Sawyer Squeeze, trowel and TP, sunblock, Buff, socks, hat, and the pack feels wonderful. The adjustability is off the charts. I can tweak the harness, shoulder straps, hip belt every which way easily. The rain cover is easy to pull out and stays put, and the reversible straps allow me to either compress the load or carry my snowshoes. Sometimes… Full review

Gregory Citro 25

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Citro 25 is a good-sized and reasonably lightweight day pack with a surprisingly strong spring steel frame. The Citro's multiple pockets should appeal to organized hikers. The included 3D Hydro 3 liter reservoir is excellent, and the hydration solution is unusually flexible. A small pack that can swing above its weight, depending on your needs and gear. BACKGROUND/DETAILS The Citro 25 falls into a popular niche of large day packs that can carry a decent amount of gear for a variety of conditions. Full review

Deuter Speed Lite 20

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a simple and lightweight pack. It is great for a day hikes when a tremendous amount of extra gear isn't needed. The straps and outer pockets are great when you need to bring just a little more along than you thought you would. The ability to lash stuff on makes this a nice pack for winter use as well as summer. Fit: This is a one size fits most pack. It doesn't come in different sizes. I'm 5'9"-ish with a medium build and medium torso length, and this pack fits perfectly. I was able to try… Full review

Osprey Stratos 24

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I'm really happy with this purchase, and it has made my day hikes far more pleasant. Fit When I bought this pack, I was over 300 pounds with a 54" waist. This pack juuust fit comfortably. Now that my weight has come down quite a lot (thanks to all that hiking), it fits even better. Comfort This pack is really adjustable and it took just a minute or two to get it really dialed in nicely. It just feels like part of my body when I'm hiking now. And I really love the ventilation. I don't arrive with… Full review

Osprey Stratos 24

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Extremely comfortable daypack with one main large comportment, two smaller zippered stash pockets, two side mesh pockets, and two hipbelt pockets. Other features include an integrated raincover, sleeping pad/bag straps, a trekking pole attachment point, and an ice axe loop. Overall, it's an excellent daypack with one slightly annoying feature: an awkwardly designed and/or placed hydration sleeve. I absolutely love this pack. It's a perfectly-sized daypack that has just about every feature you would… Full review

Black Diamond Speed 30

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Seems high quality, but has several flaws, including workmanship. The pack is nonadjustable, so if it fits you then great.  1. The stitching is not great for the brand or for the intended use. In mine the drawcord area is already starting to come apart and that is after one month of light use. Apart from that it's holding up but doesn't look that durable.  2. The hood design— it's a floating removable hood, which is a good idea, but the hood does not sit well unless the pack is full. It 'falls'… Full review

Red Rock Outdoor Gear Engagement Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars Great affordable daypack, which can also easily accommodate an overnight backpacking trip. Very comfortable carry in both day and overnight modes in part because of compression straps. Not as "tactical" in appearance as other packs from this brand, but still includes ample MOLLE attachment points. I recommend it as a versatile pack for the prepared day hiker or overnight backpacker, but not for the UL crowd. I picked up this pack on a good sale, but even at full price, this is a good value backpack. Full review
