    Will 32 oz Nalgene bottles fit in the water bottle pockets?

    Hey Michael! It will be a tight fit, but 32oz Nalgene bottles should fit in the water bottle pockets. Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions; I'm always happy to help you out. - Zina Bougri // zbougri@backcountry.com

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    While I tend to prefer the more traditional backpack for excursions, my folks absolutely hate them. Enter the Drift Lumbar pack. Bought this as a gift for them as they get out exploring during their retirement and they totally love it. Comes with a fully adjustable shoulder strap to keep weight distribution optimal but virtually eliminates SBS (sweaty back syndrome). Pack size if perfect for a camera, snacks, and water for a day long hike. Sits comfortably at the waist, and has tons of available adjustments.
