UltrAspire Kinetic Bottle Vest

rated 4 of 5 stars Versatile, comfortable, flexible, usable. Skeptical at first, but this pack has become a fave! Normally I don't think I would have picked this pack for myself, I thought I was a bladder guy. After trying it out a few times I was pretty happy with it. I remember a few people asking me about the pack at the time and commenting how my elbows would hit the bottles. That has been no problem at all. The location is in a great spot I think. Lower on the back creates a nice low center of gravity, feels… Full review

CamelBak M.U.L.E.

rated 5 of 5 stars Durable, light and versatile, with plenty of room for essentials. Chest strap and hip belt have Velcro straps to hide extra strap length. It's been on many hikes, and has stood up to being scraped, dropped, squished, rained/snowed on, and more. I have had this backpack for many years. It replaced my original MULE. I love the burnt orange color. It has plenty of room for snacks, water, and essentials for a long day hike. I have hiked all over Southern Utah, Central California, and parts of Virginia… Full review

Outdoor Products Mist

rated 4 of 5 stars A great value-for-money day pack; well designed with excellent construction and materials. I had been looking for a multi purpose daypack for some time and had just got to thinking that I would have to make my own when this turned up in a warehouse sale. It met all requirements for day activities, Tenkara fishing, traditional fly fishing, day and short hikes. With UL tarp and gear I can even overnight at a pinch in summer. I have never had a hydration pack before and now realize that a couple… Full review

CamelBak Rim Runner

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a great all-around pack that has proved to be very durable. This has generally been a great pack. I've used it every other day for years. Roomy enough for a bunch of outerwear as well as a supply of toiletries, tools, etc.  The main thing I'd nitpick is the side pockets, which are not adequately designed for anything I care about losing, which is a shame since they'd be very convenient. This is quite frustrating since many of my friends utilize side pockets for oodles of stuff. There are… Full review

Osprey Viper 13

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a hydration backpack that offers a little space for extra stuff and does its job extremely well. With its included proprietary 3 liter water carrier, the pack is a very comfortable and highly usable way to bring water on your daily excursions. I particularly like the way bladder integrates with the pack. The array of pockets and openings is a little daunting initially. Introduction: The Osprey Viper 13 was my choice for a small hydration backpack for day hiking and occasional longer cycling… Full review

CamelBak Pursuit 24 LR 100 Oz

rated 5 of 5 stars A great day pack in the 20 to 25 liter size. This is a great pack. I tried (7) packs on at my local REI store (all weighted down — approx 15 lbs. each), and this pack was the clear winner.  Fit: It was the most comfortable pack I tried. Comfort: After walking around the store with this pack on, I almost forgot that I was wearing it. Capacity: For a daypack, this size fit my particular needs. At 24 liters (3 liters being the bladder), it is perfect for my needs If you are looking for a daypack… Full review

CamelBak Trail Blazer

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent day pack for hiking summits or valleys. Ample interior space, large bladder for water and good exterior storage for last minute additions or items that need to be readily accessible. I've had this pack for the past four/five years and have worn it on many day hikes and snowshoe trips. There is ample space to store a wind jacket and extra layer, headlamp, first aid kit and water filter, in addition to the hydration system (completely filled) and snacks. For those time when I over packed… Full review
