REI Stuff Travel Daypack Review
I remember my first overnight camping trip to Lake Ann in Colorado. Here I was with my Dueter backpack stuffed to the brim. I was excited to get out and lug this thing around and be able to set up camp and survive for a couple of days with just the things on my back. It is really a liberating experience to go out into the wild with your pack and just enjoy nature. However, once I set up camp I wanted to explore more of what Lake Ann had to offer. Off in the distance the Three Apostles loomed and I was dying to climb them. At this point I realized I didn’t have a day pack or anything to carry water or food. The day I returned I started looking at how to fix this situation. My Deuter pack came with an attachable daypack but like a rookie I left it at home. For me this answer was simple, next time just attach the daypack. For others the answer may not be so simple.
Or…actually it could be. All you really need is a collapsible day pack to stuff into your main hiking pack. My wife has a similar version of the REI Stuff Travel Daypack that comes in backpack form and she loves it. The REI Stuff Travel Daypack weighs only 10 ounces and has a 22 liter capacity. The REI Stuff Travel Daypack can fit a water battle in one of its two side mesh pockets or you can put them inside like I do. The REI Stuff Travel Daypack has a zipper top like most large hiking packs and a drawstring to get into the main compartment. This pack is made of very tough material and should be no problem getting what you need for a little side adventure.
