Lightweight 22L Pack

Backcountry made the Lightweight 22L Pack so that you can get away from the hustle of everyday life or the bustle of work whenever you want. This minimalist pack features the perfect amount of space for lunch, layers, and a light rain shell—everything you need for quick day hikes—and includes a dedicated internal sleeve for stashing your hydration bladder. Mesh padding on the shoulder straps and back panel offer breathable comfort during warm outings, and the pack is equipped with both sternum and waist straps to help you handle heavier loads. A zippered pocket in the lid provides easy access to smaller essentials, and assorted loops at the front give you a spot for extra gear or a pair of trekking poles.

  • A minimalist pack for short day hikes
  • Durable polyester construction is ready to travel
  • Mesh back panel and shoulder straps offer breathable comfort
  • Shockcord attachment points let you stow trekking poles
  • Internal sleeve can be used for a hydration bladder
  • Internal cinch closure secures your gear

Grab and Go Pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This pack is great as a bring along adventure pack for trips where you're traveling by plane and want a single carry on + something you can bring on a hike, as a second smaller day pack during backpacking trips with a down day, or as smaller, lightweight hiking option. It's great that it can be rolled up to fit into another bag or pack while traveling. I also like the zipper compartment on top to hold essentials. The only con I have: I wish there was an external water bottle pocket for times you don't need or want to bring a bladder.

Small pack, big rewards

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Like many, I've been needing a smaller pack for hikes that did not require a larger backpack. This is super lightweight, packable, and works great for traveling. Plus, the colors are super great too!

Great lightweight daypack or travel pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this pack to take on trips where I would need a light packable daypack for day hikes. Last trip to Austria I found myself wishing I had a smaller pack than my travel backpack to take on some shorter day hikes I did. So far this has fit the bill! It’s very light but good volume and also packs down small in my suitcase. Excited to take it on more adventures !

Super lightweight, minimal day pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great backpack for a range of adventures! This bag is super packable, and lightweight. I really enjoy bringing it on longer trips, as it fits in my duffel really easily, and doesn't disappoint on day hikes.


    Very light weight and easy to fold up and pack away. Makes a great pack to stash away for when you unexpectedly need a pack. Comfy when wearing it as well!

    Anywhere and Everywhere Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Everyone needs a light daypack like this one. It is so handy you have no idea what you are missing. Sometimes a standard daypack is just too much... This is super light, can roll up very compact if you need and fits everything you need for a day at the rock gym, hike, office, or casual overnight. Just enough pockets to not lose tiny things in the main compartment. Padded and breathable back mesh.

    Awesome - barely felt it at all

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Super lightweight option - with a sleeve for a water reservoir. I was able to fit a fair amount of things in here too: rain jacket, oranges, phone, and also a friend's jacket. The hip strap was helpful, the chest strap cut across my chest in a slightly odd way, that I had to adjust a couple times, but nothing too major.

    I do wish there were one or two more pockets inside as I like to stay more organized, but for a lightweight day pack, I'd say it's a great option.

    Awesome - barely felt it at all

    New Go-To Daypack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Well, my boy just made fun of me saying "so you've gone 100% backcountry now huh?" After a week straight of using this bag every day, it's become my new commuter pack. It's super lightweight but still has a laptop sleeve in it so you can actually use it for everyday things when you aren't out adventuring as well as bring it with on a trail. I wish it had a few more pockets for organizational purposes, but glad it has the outer loops to clip on carabiners etc.

    Great light weight day bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This bag is perfect for all the little adventures you do during the day. I couldn't be more pleased with it.

    Easy to open, easy to carry

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The cinch to the main bag is super easy to use. Pull one to close, pull the other to open. Perfect amount of space and weight for a day hike. Was able to bring water, snacks, treking poles, microspikes and a rain coat easily. Hardly felt it on my back.

    Easy to keep with you

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Throw in some water and a snack and you're always ready for a day hike. Large enough to swallow most anything you'd need for a day outing, and light/small enough that you won't hesitate to keep it with you.

    Great daypack

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    this backpack is perfect for a day hike it is light weight and has good storage. There is good back support and sufficient padding which adds to the comfort and makes it great for carrying something heavy as it keeps it’s shape and support. The front straps are very functional which help support and spread out added weight. It’s simple and efficient with a single main storage area with just one division, as that is all you need.

    Thanks Brian. Happy Trails!

    I got this for after-work uphill ski laps at the resort. It's light and low-frills--perfect to haul uphill, then throw my skins in for the descent. (We're talking skiing on a groomer, so no need for a touring pack.) It is great quality and just what I needed.
