Summit towering peaks, traverse dicey ridges, and squeeze in afternoon treks with Hyperlite Mountain Gear's fully-featured, ultralight Daybreak Backpack. Weighing barely over a pound, the Daybreak boasts a surprising 17L capacity suitable for a day's worth of food, water, layers, and even climbing gear. Hyperlite acheived such a phenomenal light weight by building the pack out of Dyneema, a material used in climbing gear for long-lasting durability. Despite its light weight, the Daybreak is incredibly comfort, with padding at the back panel and shoulder straps, as well as a waist belt that stows away when you don't need it. The front pocket doubles as a hydration sleeve for your reservoir, and the internal sleeve doubles as a laptop sleeve for casual days. There's also a removable attachment system for ice axes or trekking poles, and a zippered internal pocket for valuables and electronics.

It comes in small, medium and large, and will stay snug and comfortable while you navigate tricky terrain.
