Going far with a light load? The 2020 Editors’ Choice Award-winning Zerk has you covered. It lacks a suspension, but its running vest-style shoulder straps support loads up to 30 pounds. The straps also have super convenient pockets for keeping snacks, sunglasses, lip balm, your phone, or other items handy making it a solid choice for everything from day hiking to weekend trips to ultralight thru-hikes.
