Mountain Hardwear Windpack - Daypack: Reviews

   Photo: Mark Wiens


A two-in-one pack is the smartest choice on a hut trip, and the Windpack is one of the year's best. The main pack's 2,550 cubic inches easily swallowed sleeping bag, clothes, and tequila on a three-day hut tour in Colorado. And chasing face shots, the detachable, 500-cubic-inch yo-yo pack had enough space to carry shovel, probe, shell, and lunch. 4.5 lbs;

Bonus: The open pocket between the main pack and the yo-yo is a handy place to stash a shell.

Bummer: The yo-yo doesn't carry quite as well as some stand-alone packs.
