Our Best Day Packs For 2020

Escaping the city for a day or heading for a stroll in the hills? You’ll need a pack that can carry everything you’ll need, wherever you’re heading, without weighing you down. Here are our top daypack picks for 2020.

Lowe Alpine Airzone Pro ND33:40

A versatile pack designed for the hills, in an exclusive colourway, the Airzone Pro ND33:40 features a warp-knitted mesh backsystem for comfort and breathability all day. External pockets and plenty of compression straps give you plenty of scope to carry extra layers, walking poles, a roll mat or an axe, while a large-capacity top pocket allows quick access to all your essentials.

Osprey Talon 22

Iconic for good reason - if you’re moving fast through the wilderness, the Talon is for you. The AirScape mesh covered accordion foam back panel has ridges that fit to the contours of your body, allowing maximum air flow and keeping the load stable as you move, while Stow-On-The-Go and LidLock external features let you attach your trekking poles and helmet with ease.

Montane Trailblazer 18

A multi-sport pack designed for fast pace and low weight, the Trailblazer 18 delivers a customizable, body-hugging fit without restricting movement thanks to enlarged shoulder straps and COVALENT harness. Internal organisation allows easy access to hydration, food and essential kit.

Osprey Transporter Panel 20L Daypack

New for AW20, the Transporter is a durable and water-resistant commuting pack built to withstand anything the daily grind throws at you. Internal organisation features include a water bottle sleeve and padded laptop section, for a sleek profile that still offers space for all your essentials.

Osprey Arcane Tote Bag

All the function of a day pack combined with the city-ready style of a tote? Osprey have done it, and it’s as impressive as you’d expect. Made from a recycled pack cloth fabric and featuring an internal laptop sleeve as well as two large front pockets, utilitarian function combines with clean lines for an essential everyday companion.

The North Face Isabella 17L Daypack

At home on the commute and in the hills, the Isabella is the perfect size for a day’s escape from the city. Clean, contemporary design, roomy interior and women’s-specific back panel and shoulder straps make it ideal for carrying all the kit you need in comfort, all day.
