About Daypacks for Hiking:

Day hikes are probably my favorite kind of hiking there is. Although I like backpacking, I don't like to carry all my gear, all the time. When I go out for a quick walk on the trail, I only need to bring my daypack. Inside the pack I can fit everything I'll need to keep me rockin' out all day.

Any basic day-long hiking backpack will leave you enough room to carry some food, for lunch and snacks, a rain or cold weather jacket in case the day turns nasty. You should also always keep a first-aide kit with you too, just in case. In my daypack, I always keep the stuff I just listed, as well as a roll of duct tape, and a paracord, which come in handy if something breaks and I need to repair my backpack on the trail. I'll also always keep a utility knife, and lighter (or other source of fire). You never know what's going to happen out in the wilderness, so it's important to keep you daypack stocked full of essentials, just in case something happens.

Day backpacks will come in different styles to suite all of your needs. You can get packs that are made specifically for hiking, biking, water sports, urban exploring and just about any other reason you can think of. Personally, I have one for just about every scenario that I end up in. I have a daypack about 30 liters in size for hiking. I also have one about 20 liters in size for biking. This gives me just enough room to carry some spare parts and tools, along with a hydration bladder, some snacks, and jacket for bad weather. My water sport daypack is something I use mainly for kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. The backpack is fully waterproof, just in case it gets wet, and has enough room to carry all the gear I need on a short trip.

Daypacks have come a long way in the last few years. Many of them will now offer some sort of airflow to help keep your back cool and dry out on the trail. You know, something like a suspension system, or air vents that keep the air circulating. You'll also see things like rain covers. These are great to keep in your pack for when the weather turns nasty. Simply pull the cover over your pack and you'll be waterproof. Another great feature has got to be the common place of hydration reservoirs. No need to carry a water bottle with you anymore, just keep the hydration bladder in the daypack, and you'll be able to keep your hands free for taking pictures and feeding squirrels.
