The North Face TreeHugger - Day Backpacks: Reviews

Old-School Cool

A 1,950-cubic-inch daypack made out of merino wool? Yup. And it's not a greenwashed gimmick, either. For starters, the merino wool here bears little resemblance to your favorite sweater; the yarn is worsted and given a ripstop treatment so it's durable yet light. While the overall design is old-school—a single internal compartment with two massive side pockets—there were just enough modern touches (hydration sleeve, trekking-pole attachments, etc.) to appease testers. The only bummer: No pocket in the top lid. 2.6 lbs;
Versatility: 3
Comfort: 3.4
