Osprey Daylite

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a very lightweight pack, easily adjustable for either of the two us of, who are of very different sizes! Best used for short day hikes or winter activities in which a large capacity pack is not required. This little day pack weighs barely a pound, yet has served us well as a second pack for day hikes. It is very durable, comes in a variety of colors, and has nice features that project it a bit past other basic "sack" day packs I have had. The capacity is a bit small for me to use it as my… Full review

The North Face Men's Recon

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a versatile high quality pack that will take all the abuse you can throw at it. I don't have enough good things to say about this pack. I use this primarily for my everyday carry needs, but I do intend to test it out on the trail as well. Let's start with the quality of the pack. This pack is very solidly built. All of the zippers are very functional and solid. I wouldn't ask for better clips for the compression straps. They are sturdy and strong.   The pack has a very solid back panel. Full review

Marmot Flux 24

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a great pack for day hikes. Comfortable and durable with plenty of space. Like everything in life this pack has its pros and its cons. I find the back panel to be well designed. It provides nice breathable support that doesn't hinder the storage capacity of the pack. I wouldn't consider this an ultralight pack by any means, but, unlike my REI Flash 22 that I also use for day hikes, this pack has a nice organizational admin pocket and a floating pocket on the front.   I use the admin pocket… Full review

REI Flash 22 Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars If you want a lightweight quality day pack with plenty of room for a day hike, then this is your pack. I have had this pack for at least three years now. It's typically my go-to pack for day hikes. I am a bit of an over-preparer on a day hike and I always have enough room. Typically I carry a fleece, rain jacket, first aid kit, two 32 oz. water bottles, and a survival kit, baby wipes, sunscreen, etc. not to mention my wallet, keys and phone and I have plenty of room for everything. If there was… Full review

L.L.Bean Escape 20 Day Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pack for day hike, includes a hydration hole to insert your own. Great fit on your back. I got this pack and have used it on several hikes. I like that the side pockets can hold a water bottle if you don't want to use a hydration system. It has some great pockets to separate gear. And useful outside straps to prevent bouncing if not too much in pack. Nice durable contraction. I'm 6'2 and it fits on my back quite nice. Has a padded hip belt the breathes well to use on a trail run as well. A… Full review

Osprey Talon 22

rated 5 of 5 stars Meets all my expectations for a durable, easily accessible, and multi-functional day hike backpack. Exceeds its own advertising for a comfortable, stable, and ergonomic fit that reduces fatigue and strain. For the novice or day hiker Osprey has constructed the backpack of choice. Compact and good looking it can easily double for biking, fishing, and canoeing trips. Ultralight hikers may find the components and wearability an intriguing option. Full review

REI Flash 18 Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars The Flash 18 is a lightweight daypack when all you need to carry are items like water, snacks, and a few layers. It packs down to almost nothing and can be flipped inside out to be a stuff sack. When I'm traveling or backpacking, I often take this to use as a day pack. It also works well as a pack to wear while multi-pitch climbing. Likes Lightweight: The pack is lightweight and compact. Rolled up, it's about the size of a hotdog. Simple drawstring closure Hydration compatible: There is an internal… Full review

Osprey FlapJack

rated 5 of 5 stars Super comfortable bag, sits perfectly on your back. I think this is a great bag. It has become my favorite for all my biking needs. The bag sits snugly and comfortably on your back, so it is practically an extension of your body. The low profile design means is doesn't shift around when you move, and it is not bulky enough to get caught on stuff. I've been surprised to find out how much I can pack into it, much more than I had expected. The inner sleeve expands to help secure your goods, and the… Full review

Mountain Laurel Designs Core 28

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very simple, lightweight backpack for those fast and light adventures. This is Ron's latest pack at Mountain Laurel Designs; it's offered in two sizes (22 and 28 liters), I'm reviewing the 28 liter one, although besides volume they appear to be identical. The listed weight for the 28 liters is 8.8 oz (including the removable waistbelt and sternum strap), on my scale the weight is spot on; the material is a 210 d Dyneema X fabric, a very hardy fabric (same material that is used on my Exped Lightning),… Full review
