Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Designed for runners, this daypack offers lightweight suspension and superior ventilation, keeping you comfortable mile after mile.


Like its namesake hummingbird, the Gregory Rufous Backpack is light, speedy, and feeds on delicious nectar. If nectar's scarce, it will also gobble up miles of trail without a second though. Weighing in at just over one pound, the Rufous has enough room to hold a two-liter reservoir, two water bottles, and a windbreaker or rain layer without making you feel like a lumpy monkey is trying to ride you like a rodeo bull. All your snacks will fit in the dual waist-belt mesh stretch pockets, and the front water bottle pockets are easy to reach when you're on the move. The Rufous rides smoothly, too, with a Bio-Sync suspension system that features an ergonomically-molded back aero-mesh panel with strategic foam inserts and a flexible strap-to-pack connection that allows the straps to move without jerking the pack around and throwing you off balance.
