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

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

3V Gear Outlaw Gear Slinger

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Single arm sling pack with support strap. This is a great bag for short hikes. First off, I love this bag! I originally bought it as a messenger-style bag for when I'm biking around town, but it has also become my bag for day hiking adventures. One of my favorite features of this bag is that it is a single arm sling pack. I find this design more comfortable to wear for short stints than a traditional two-arm backpack. I love that when I need to grab something I can just swing it around to my front… Full review

Wild Things Guide Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars This light, old-school day pack is great for people who want a low profile pack with plenty of tie-down options. Made for climbing, this pack should prove to be very durable. It has light but very comfortable shoulder straps and a removable lid and back pad for those who want to minimize weight. Unpadded hip belt and crude hydration accommodations might not thrill some people. I purchased the Guide pack a year ago because most of my 'day' packs were larger, heavier, and made to carry more weight. Full review

Arc'teryx Cierzo 18

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent compact day pack. It's ideal as a summit pack, for travel, or just smaller day hikes. The Cierzo is a truly excellent pack with a number of innovative features. Its design as a summit pack defines it but doesn't limit its utility. Primarily it's a great multi-pitch rock climbing and summit pack for longer trips where you don't want to haul your 60Litre up a mountain. But this compressibility makes it ideal for travel and daily use as well. I took this pack trekking in Peru and on the odd… Full review

Osprey Daylite

rated 4 of 5 stars Great lightweight daypack. I bought this from the REI Outlet. I wanted a lightweight day pack that I could carry with me while canoe camping and backpacking in case I stayed at a campsite for multiple days. Very lightweight. Great for carrying water, food, a shell, and any other smaller gear you want to carry. My Gregory Triconi 60 has a lid fanny pack, but I don't like taking the pack apart to use it. Set up at Dutch Doctor Shelter in Harriman State Park, and had to hike to a lake to pump water. Full review

Osprey Daylite

rated 5 of 5 stars Great all-around day pack for many uses from outdoor active to around town travel. I got this pack last year and I've used it on several outings, from day hikes, snowshoe trips, cross country skiing, and even just shopping around town while travelling. The pack is comfortable and has enough pockets to stow everything I need while not being too busy with excessive pockets. The integrated hydration pocket holds a water bladder securely, but sometimes I simply tuck a water bottle in the side pocket. Full review
