Carry what you need and nothing more.
With its low-profile shape and rugged dependability, the Mountainsmith Tour Lumbar Pack holds all the gear you need for a day hike or urban adventure. Mountainsmith equipped the Tour with its Delta Compression System, which ensures loads up to twelve pounds are evenly distributed for comfortable carrying. All you have to do is adjust the waist belt and cinch down the compression straps, and your lumbar pack won't bounce as you go up the trail or walk downtown. The waist belt tucks away in case you decide to sling this bag over your shoulder with the removable, padded shoulder strap (sold separate). The Tour has two mesh pockets that each hold a 32-ounce water bottle. Not to mention, you can use this lumbar pack as a carry-on, too—it even has an airplane ticket pocket on its back panel if you decide to take it abroad.

The lumbar pack that helped start the craze in the 80s, the Tour pack lives on in its modern incarnation as a favorite of hikers and outdoor-minded travelers. With a broad swath of versatile uses, this pack tends to become a cherished possession in every outdoor enthusiastâs gear closet. However, it does not stay there long as it gets used daily as a hiking pack, disc golf bag, messenger bag, office briefcase, carry on travel solution, diaper bag, and whatever you can think of.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bag is lightweight, comfortable, easy to access, and very well built. Surprising how much you can stuff into the bag. I mostly use this bag for travel as it's easy to carry around with all the stuff you need for the day and takes the weight off your back.
