A do-it-all daypack is an essential for summer adventures, and the Nine Trails hits the mark. Testers loved its mesh-covered backpanel’s breathability when the mercury climbed, and also noted the pack’s stability under loads of up to 25 pounds. (The 26-liter women’s version received especially high praise for its dialed fit.) This top-loader has a huge, U-shape zipper for no-hassle gear stuffing, and its large back shove-it pocket fit extra layers easily while hipbelt pockets kept snacks close at hand. Grab select colors in both the men’s and women’s styles at Backcountry now. Buy Patagonia Nine Trails 28L now for $55 (65% off) / Buy Patagonia Nine Trails 26L now for $50 (69% off)
