Ozark Trail Rucksack

rated 4.0 of 5 stars

The Rucksack has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best daypacks for 2022.

I don't make it a habit of buying my gear from Walmart, but this was a excellent purchase. I use this pack on a daily basis to carry my office clothes while I ride my bike to work and to carry light loads while out Geocaching.

I'm also an Appalachian Trail Maintainer & Trail Crew Member - it's not uncommon to see sledge hammers, picks, buckets, bow saws, etc. strapped to this pack while hiking to and from trail work details. I've had this pack for 2 years and I've beaten the living daylights out of it and it still performs just as well as the day I bought it.

Design: Ozark Trail Ruck Sack
Number of Pockets: enough
Max. Load Carried: 2 sledge hammers, 1 bucket, my lunch, a first aid kit and my rain gear
Height of Owner: 6'1"
Price Paid: $30

I can't think of a reason not to give it 5 stars. I priced other internal frame daypacks before my trip and this was by far the cheapest. I took this pack on a 5-day mountain bike ride from Pittsburgh, Pa., to Washington, D.C., and it performed very well.

It has a wet clothes compartment the same size as the internal pouch, and a hidden raincover that came in handy. Several pockets and straps as well. I was carrying 27lbs or more on my back the entire trip and had the bag packed to the point zippers had to be pulled together and stretched to their max. I didn't have a single failure on the bag for the whole trip. It even has a sleeve and special pocket for tent poles.

Number of Pockets: Lots
Max. Load Carried: 30lbs
Height of Owner: 5'9"
Price Paid: $30

I found the Ozark Trail Rucksack great. For only $30 I use it for many things. Outdoor activities such as hiking and biking, and also for school. The front and hip straps make it very comfortable and takes alot of the pressure of your shoulders and back. It also has a place for a water reservoir. I think it is a great backpack.

I've found this pack to be wonderful. Just about every other daypack I've had falls apart under the weight of my books (med school). This one so far shows no signs of wear. I also like the fact that for my outdoor activities, it's designed to hold a hydration bladder. It's very comfortable and well made. It even has a rain cover built in, which is great when I'm riding my bicycle across town on a rainy day.

Well, the straps ripped on me and I was screwed for the day hike. I am never ever getting camping gear from Wal-Mart again.
