Though the design honors the 35+ year history of this waist pack and has not changed much in shape, modern features make this version of the Day the best yet. Features now include a tuck away waist belt for messenger style carry, removable shoulder strap, traditional front panel bungee, interior tablet sleeve, smart phone compatible waist belt pocket, ridged EVA back panel padding with stash pocket, side water bottle holders, hanging inner sanctum pocket, zippered front panel pocket with key clip, bottom compression straps, and a headphone port. We have heard this product used for just about anything including a 3 day backpacking trip in the Sierras. Where will this fanny pack take you?
If you have had a Day pack in your lifetime, you already know how useful it can be. If not, what are you waiting for?
Don't ever use a backpack again for day hikes! Lumbar packs are the best. Saves your shoulder, prevents sweaty back. Just get the camelback lumbar bladder (https://www.backcountry.com/camelbak-crux-lumbar-reservoir) and you can carry a bunch of food, clothes, water, everything in the lumbar pack. Also, get a magnetic clip adaptor to route the bladder hose and you are wicked stoked: https://www.rei.com/product/150338/platypus-magnetic-drink-tube-clip
I ordered this pack in red. Bob Wards sent me an email days later saying they didn't have it and they cancelled my order. I asked to substitute another color. Nope they couldn't be bothered. POOR customer service.
