Gregory Salvo 24

rated 5 of 5 stars Great little pack for a day hike! This pack is perfect for a day hike. Right amount of organizational pockets that let you place your gear for quick and easy access. Nice vented back panel that breathes and wicks away moistUre. Hip belt with small pockets to store quick access items. Not too small and not too big. Just perfect! Full review

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A relatively small, highly durable daypack that moves easily from commuting to the trail. While this is no lightweight for a backpack this small, it is comfortable to carry and supremely easy to access the contents. With inner sleeves that swallow a laptop, tablet, and cables, it would be a super solution for commuters who prefer a backpack to a briefcase. It's basically a smaller, stripped-down version of one of my favorite larger daypacks, the 38 liter Mystery Ranch Snapdragon. The lack of any… Full review

RōM Outdoors RōM Pack

rated 3 of 5 stars The RoM Pack delivers in durability and diversity. If you're looking for a twist on a daypack, the RoM Pack is hard to beat. I had the opportunity to review the RoM Pack. The RoM pack offers a durable daypack that transforms into a fleece lined blanket and water resistant poncho. This pack also includes a drawstring stuff sack as an added bonus.  The pack weighs in around 4.6 pounds, slightly heavier than most daypacks I've worn hiking, but could be worn on a shorter hikes without much extra effort.

RōM Outdoors RōM Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars RoM Pack is a very versatile, well made, day adventure pack. Transforms into a blanket or poncho for your exploration needs. This is my go-to bag for sporting events and day trips with my grandkids. I received the RoM Pack to review while out adventuring. I like this pack as a day use, event oriented carry all. It is excellent for excursions to the park or sporting events and has plenty of space to attach necessities. I used it for a 4.5-mile hike and it was comfortable to carry even without the… Full review

Osprey Flux

rated 4 of 5 stars This has been a great day pack. The multiple compartments allow separation of gear, clothes, and food. Very comfortable and well made. Full review

RōM Outdoors RōM Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars A backpack that has a few specific applications and performs very well for those situations. Perfect for picnic adventures or a backup car poncho/blanket. The pack is very comfortable and quick to take apart and put back together. I received a sample of this product from the brand or its representatives in exchange for a review.  I recently tried out the RoM pack on a day trip in Cheaha State Park where we packed in food for the day and planned to stop mid-hike for a nice break and to check out… Full review

RōM Outdoors RōM Pack

rated 1.5 of 5 stars The RōM Pack is a convertible backpack that can unfold into a poncho or a blanket....but ultimately it is this idea that is the reason the product fails. This isn't something that solves a need and even if it did, the execution was poor. The RōM Pack is a convertible backpack that can unfold into a poncho or a blanket.  As a backpack… What I like: It is stylish The material quality is heavy duty What I didn't like: It is very heavy…when empty The main pocket isn't very large due to the excess… Full review

Matador Freerain24

rated 5 of 5 stars Needed a durable, lightweight, and small packed daypack for peak bagging. The Matador FreeRain24 ended up being perfect! Needed a daypack to use on a recent backpacking trip. Was going to do some day hikes and summit attempts from basecamps so needed a small pack that wouldn't take up much space or add too much weight to my 65l backpack.  At 5 oz and about the size of an apple when packed down, this appeared to be perfect. Took it out for a summit attempt, loaded it up for an 8-hour trek and headed… Full review

Deuter Fox 30

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Quality is fine, but didn't meet the specs for torso sizes. I bought this online to introduce my 7- (almost 8-) year-old grandson Nyca to backpacking. I'd searched extensively online and felt this would be right. WRONG! Upon receiving it I adjusted it to the smallest torso setting and loaded it with a bit less than 10 lbs. for a test walkabout with me. In the short mile it kept flopping around no matter what adjustments were made. Returning home I got out the tape measure and to my surprise, the… Full review
