Recent Daypack (under 2,000 cu in) Reviews

Granite Gear Ancho 18

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great lightweight daypack for short hikes; has an internal pocket to hold a hydration bladder, two external side pockets, and a front long zip compartment for easy access. I use this for bike commuting and for short excursions where I don't need any gear. Granite Gear really puts a lot of thought into product development. The side pocket zippers are oriented front-to-back so you can unzip and grab things without taking off the pack. I love this bag. It's lightweight, the color is great, and it's… Full review

Kelty Redwing 32

rated 5 of 5 stars Great Kelty quality, comfortable, and useful pockets various gear. This is the perfect size pack for a day hike or overnighter. It's a bit on the spendy side for a daypack, but I expect it will last me five years or more. Very comfortable daypack with just enough space, but not too big. I've used other packs in the 40-45L range and for most day hikes they are just overkill. And while it would be a stretch to bring a lot of gear for an overnighter, it could be done with this pack if you pack smart… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Dyneema Summit Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars The Hyperlite Mountain Gear Dyneema Summit pack is probably the simplest, most indestructible, lightweight pack I've ever owned. It's withstood many summits in the Eastern Sierras, slot canyons in southern Utah, peak bagging in the White Mountains in New Hampshire, and even some minimalist two-day trips into the mountains. The design is very black and white. Pack most of your stuff in the single roll-top closure compartment, and clip anything else you might need to the outside. Like everything else… Full review

5.11 Tactical All Hazards Prime

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great day pack, lots of options for adding Molle style additions like water bottle holder, additional pockets etc. Glasses holder on top protects fragile items and two zippered compartments hold lots of gear securely and organized. H2O bladder is a real bonus on this pack. Love the pack, it fits several needs as a daypack or even just a bag to take to work or the gym. I love the options that are available with the Molle system.  Full review

MindShift UltraLight Dual 36L

rated 4 of 5 stars The Mindshift Gear Ultralight Dual 36L is a well built, cleverly designed backpack targeting the cross-section of ultralight/lightweight backpackers who are serious about their photography. The backpack is filled with clever features which make on-the-move photography very convenient, while still maintaining the look, feel, and performance of sleek outdoor backpack. Introduction: The MindShift Ultralight Dual 36L photo daypack is a very interesting product, and one that addresses several interests… Full review

Gregory Athena

Great pockets, good space, but small straps (meant for a shorter/smaller person). First...I read a review that said this fits small (meant for a smaller woman or larger child) and that is true! That said, it fits me perfectly because I'm small. So...I haven't actually filled/tried it yet, but it's exactly what I wanted style wise/pocket wise. Hard to find a daypack/travel pack with external pockets like I needed, but this has it at a great price! (Moosejaw has a killer deal on it as of 5/10/16)… Full review

Outdoor Products Fieldline Alpha OPS Daypack

rated 4 of 5 stars Good, basic bag. Comfortable to carry, roomy interior. Good for EDC, day hikes, or Get Home Bag in car or office. Good for a beginner who doesn't want to spend a lot of money on a starter bag. I picked up this bag last year from Amazon. I was looking for a black tactical-looking daypack to replace one I had worn out. This Fieldline Alpha Ops Daypack was a decent replacement for the price. It's not my every day bag but it's getting decent use. As soon as I got it last year, I loaded it up and took… Full review

EMS Packable Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best for summer and ultralight hiking, this pack is a bargain, even at EMS list price of $40. Can hold a maximum of 25 lbs, although you will be happier at 15 to 19 lbs. The material is tougher than it looks, the seams are properly stitched, and the value is awesome, for a 25L (1500 cu in) 9 ounce pack. I used it in March for a two-day /one-night 30-mile R/T on the Appalachian Trail, the weekend that many NB thru-hikers were starting. It held up well and I even had a 20-degree down bag / 2 pound… Full review

Ozark Trail Atka 28L

rated 4 of 5 stars Ozark Trail Atka 28L lightweight backpack. Before purchasing this pack I used a more traditionally styled, and heavier, backpack for daily walks. I recently attended a seminar that explained the major difference of carrying lighter gear while outdoors. It really made a lot of sense. So while in Walmart, I saw this very lightweight bag today and decided to give it a try. While walking in various environments I only need to carry a few items: some water, orange juice, glucose meter, rain jacket,… Full review
