We have prepared here a list with best day hiking packs, Amazon bestselling versatile items for fast and light hiking tours and other outdoor activities.
What is in the list
The term hiking may include a variety of activities, but these relatively small packs are so versatile that you can use them for hiking, bicycle riding, walking, running, commuting, mountaineering, travel, and you name it.
Some great examples in the list come with a hydration bladder included, so this is indeed a bonus which you will need in your daily adventures. Most of them have side mesh pockets included, so here you can store your water bottles and also your tripod, umbrella, or anything similar. They usually have side straps added so when you store such items in the side pockets you can fix them in place with the straps.
Such straps are also to cinch your pack and to stabilize the load. If you carry food the amount of stuff in the pack will reduce in the pack during the day, so you might use such straps and reduce the volume of the pack.
You will see many of them with loops on the bottom, so those are for trekking poles or even for an ice axe if you go to some more demanding adventure.
Those are usually panel loading type packs, so you have a long zipper to get to the main compartment. With such a design they look like ordinary backpacks for city use and you can indeed use them for such a purpose as well. You will see many pockets to keep your stuff organized.
You will notice that these are incredibly affordable packs, and you should know that they are unisex models. Though some of them come in a variety of colors so you can choose something that is more appropriate for men or for women. If you would still want some gender-specific packs, check our separate list for women like these Gregory packs for women and also Osprey packs for women. See also our list of hiking packs on sale.
