Peak Design makes good products
I love Peak Design products. I have a few straps, camera hand strap, 5L Sling and now the Tech Pouch. Great organisational bag for travelling and was hoping to use it with a strap for daily use. This version (Amazon) is slightly different from the Peak Design website version (external looped attachm...

REI Co-op Flash 22 Print Pack
great for theme parks, hikes, quick overnight trip
It's great for just about anything really! rolls up small enough to fit in a nice crevice in my pack when backpacking. I like how you can both cinch and clip the top for added security. Nice little padding on the straps. Even when in 100+ degree heat for 9+ hours, helped to keep my back cool and wic...

REI Co-op Flash 22 Print Pack
Nice Pack with Mediocre Pocket Design
For context, what I want out of this pack is to use it on long day hikes (8 - 14 miles) with a lot of elevation gain. I carry something like the Ten Essentials. I don't use a bladder; both side pockets carry water.
The pack very light. It also has light mesh shoulder straps, which I definitely li...
