The Arrio 18 made by Gregory is a super light pack has plenty of room for everything you’ll need on any day hike. It’s got a comfortable, ventilated suspension system and shoulder straps to keep you cool, a mesh water bottle pouch, and two zippered external pockets.
There’s also front bungee webbing that’s great for quickly stowing jackets and other layers, while the built-in hydration pouch and hanger is compatible with Gregory’s QuickDry 3D Hydro system (not included). The top-loading main compartment is a perfect volume for the amount of gear that prepared day hikers need to carry.
MSRP: $89.95. Gregorypacks.com
