I’ve used the Flyweight for a year now and find it very functional. It’s been with me hiking the Alps in Chamonix as well as touring cities in China. It is my carry-on on flights and yet packs down to fit in my rolling back on travel days. It holds a jacket, sweater, and water for a casual hike or a day of city touring. It is designed as a real backpack, not a sack with shoulder straps. The waist strap is a real help for the trip home when it is fully loaded and heavy with purchases.

Then bust it out when your adventures take you to splendid waterfalls and on short day hikes where that rolly suitcase just won't cut it. This highly compressible daypack is very light so you won't notice you packed it till you need it. The pack stuffs into its own pocket, and the nylon ripstop fabric is coated to shed light moisture in case you get too close to the waterfall.
