rated 5 of 5 stars The greatest travel and every day backpack. The greatest travel and every day backpack. This backpack has everything:water resistant rain cover, good material so far, sturdy. The bottom of the backpack has a little leg bar thing to allow the laptop to stand space for laptop specifically, storage space for books or anything that needs a big space, another storage pocket for pencil or papers or folders, front pocket for any extra stuff, small pocket on the back for anti-theft. 2… Full review

Matador Freerain24

rated 4.5 of 5 stars FreeRain24 is lightweight, waterproof, and packable. After receiving the Daylite16 as a gift last year and loving it, I decided to try the FreeRain24. Why not? Their gear cost a little more than I would usually spend, however it is of very good quality. This packable bag is only 5.5 ounces and had a minimalist design. Not a lot of extras but it doesn't need them. This bag packs a lot. After using a 16L bag this seems like a duffle bag! It has one large main compartment, and a smaller zip pocket… Full review

Osprey Kestrel 28

rated 3 of 5 stars Good backpack with a need for big improvement. I bought this one because I have very good impression of my Kestrel 48 which I purchased one year ago. I 100% agree with one of the reviews here—this pack needs a rigid stay/frame/wire for transferring the weight to hip belt. The picture shows how the backpack sits on my back. I carried about 10 lbs in the pack, but as you can see the back panel was bent. The weight is not well transferred to the hip belt. I have read the issue about back panel's… Full review

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
