This pack is sold and marketed towards the long distance shooting crowd, however as an outdoors man (and EMT) I immediately found it to be very well suited for day hikes or such activities (mountain biking, etc.) where one would want to keep weight down while still being prepared for possible emergencies that could arise. This pack fits essentials like a bandages, tourniquet, knife/multi tool, a note pad and pen, a small water filter (lifestraw, etc.), small flash light, and hand held GPS.
|Contents: bloodstopper bandage, Samsung Galaxy 5s, Leatherman multi tool, Garmin Venture Cx, Rite in the Rain pen and Pad, gloves are notably missing but before heading out at least 2 pairs will be added.|
The pack itself lends to additions inside since both side of it are lined with Velcro attachments so it can be somewhat modified to fit your particular taste/needs better. It really looks and feels very sturdy, yet light enough to be worn all day with out fatigue, zippers are sturdy and hard to break(considering how not delicate I can be at times this is a plus).
All in all this pack is something I'd want in my equipment quiver for day activities, and to teach myself to minimize how much I carry on a day trip.
