This day pack has been reliable for the last four years. I can't think of a single negative issue I have had with it. It is an excellent day pack for hiking or travel.


  • Comfortable to carry
  • Zippers are very durable


  • Is a bit small for anything beyond a day trip
  • Water bottle holders are a bit tight.

I have used this as my go-to day pack for a number of years. At first I questioned the price but managed to find it on sale. It can carry enough gear for most day trips while being comfortable to carry.

The only negative issue I have found is that when fully packed the mesh water bottle holders are a bit tight for a 32 oz bottle. It fits nicely in an overhead storage and under a train seat.


Thanks for the review, Zachariah!

I took this on a day hike to the top of Mt. Marcy…

Max. Load Carried: the most I carried was around 30-35 lbs.

Price Paid: $50

I took this on a day hike to the top of Mt. Marcy and for being a small pack this works really well. The only downside was the pack was a bit to small, or I just packed to much. But all and all nice pack.
