For any outdoor activity that involves more gear than you can carry in your pockets for one day, you need a daypack. At first glance, all daypacks may look similar, but they actually have lots of functional differences. To figure out which daypack is best for you, consider these four things:
Activity: How you’ll use the daypack can determine a lot about what features you need.
Capacity: The size pack you need also depends on how much gear you plan to carry.
Features: Things like frame type and pack access affect how the pack works for you.
Fit: Torso length and hip size are the most important fit factors.
Nearly all are compatible with hydration reservoirs and have water bottle pockets on each side
Lots of torso size options and different suspension designs help you choose a pack that fits your body
A narrow profile allows you to move well while climbing with the pack on
Most include a padded back or a framesheet for comfort with heavier loads; they usually have a frame that helps center weight on the hips
Include specialized features such as an ice axe loop, crampon patches and daisy chain for lashing gear
Reinforcements and heavier fabrics help minimize damage from abrasion
Some climbing packs work for backcountry skiing/snowboarding
A waistpack, water-bottle pack, running vest or small technical daypack are all good choices
These packs are designed to limit jostling while you run
Pockets are positioned for easy access to snacks
Most vests and packs are compatible with hydration reservoirs
Many have organization features, such as: a laptop sleeve, dividers, separate compartments and an organizer panel to hold small items
Many travel bags have a front opening (panel opening) rather than a top opening
Some have dual zippers with space for travel locks
Some allow you to tuck straps away to keep them from getting caught in conveyor belts at the airport or train station
Most are sized to meet carry-on luggage guidelines
While designed for travel, many are ideal for getting to school or work
Road cycling packs have a compact, low-profile design that keeps them light and stable on your back without creating a lot of wind resistance
Mountain-biking packs are often a bit larger to accommodate extra gear, clothing and bike tools
Some are designed for commuting and include features such as a laptop sleeve and organization panel
Most have low-profile waistbelts that won’t interfere with your pedaling
Many are compatible with hydration reservoirs
