The ideal dayhiking pack is small but durable, organized but simple, and comfortable but able to carry moderate weight. The Hikelite nails that trifecta, and has emerged from a year of near-constant use in fine condition thanks to a 100-denier nylon packbag and 500-denier nylon bottom. Storage options include a hydration sleeve, side mesh pockets for a water bottle and doggie bags, a front stuff compartment for quickly stashing a windbreaker, and a 2-liter front pocket to hold sunglasses, a GPS, and snacks. A mesh trampoline backpanel kept our backs from overheating even in 90°F temps, and we didn’t feel too much pack sway while carrying up to 30 pounds.$100; 1 lb. 9 oz.; 26 liters; unisex one size
