Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary Great Small Pack
Got this little pack thinking it would be way to small for what I needed, but I was surprised. For quick day hikes, it carries all the essentials I need, food, water, a shell, first aid kit, journal, etc. It also has a small inside pocket for keys, pens, phone. The material seems durable so far, and the color is awesome! What sold me was the comfort. The mesh back panel and flexible shoulder straps make this an awesome pack to carry. I use it almost daily to carry my iPad, notebook, jacket and water bottle for work, then it doubles up on the weekend for my quick adventures. Overall very impressed with the quality and comfort of this pack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tim Good bag but too small
This is a nice bag. It's simple, which makes it different from other bags. There are no fancy bells or whistles. The main problem is that it is not quite big enough to use as a day pack. If it were 20 liters, it would be great. The size is the only flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vickie This should do the trick.
I haven't used this pack yet - I got it primarily to take on long, multi-pitch climbs. Hydration compatible is one nice feature of this pack. I chose it because it otherwise does not have a lot of pockets or straps. It seems to go along with the great idea that less is more. If it is anything like other BD packs and equipment I own it will prove to be the perfect choice.

Its a small, simple, very usefull little pack. Bought new, two days later used in NYC and the BD logo on the side had come off, kind of peeled away from the pack. Only used to walk arround Manhattan under a couple of semi rainy days. Terrible durability I might say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sarah My much-loved everything pack
I use this little pack for everything. Some examples: going to the pool or splash pad with my kids, packing my teaching supplies & kid necessities for church, going to the zoo, short-medium hikes, taking the train to the city.
I was worried the capacity would be too small, but that has not been the case. It doesn't fit towels when we go swimming, but will fit snacks, change of clothes (1 adult, 2 little kids), EDC stuff, etc.
For hiking it easily fits a 2L hydrobak bladder, 16 oz platypus, my 10 essentials kit (a small OR organizer stuffed), a silnylon poncho/tarp, a lightweight top layer, and a bunch of food.
I highly recommend this slick little pack for anyone.

by Phillip A small bag for manly men...and also for the ladies.
I have been searching for a small day pack that will be easy to stow under an airplane seat, and yet big enough to fit a jacket and other small essentials. I hate lugging around a giant pack that is only partially filled - especially when it is hot and you are trying to enjoy your vacation but instead are constantly trying to adjust your huge pack. Are you trying to have a great time exploring the town or are you about to climb Everest?
