SPARTAN AND PACKABLE
No suspension system, extraneous buckles, or even a sleeve for a hydration bladder. And that’s why we love the Cierzo: It’s perfect for those times when you’re not sure you’ll need a small daypack—be it a business trip to San Francisco or a river trip with the possibility of day hikes. Weighing in at less than a ham sandwich, the Cierzo folds down into its own integrated pouch so you can stuff it in your luggage, car, or larger pack. Testers climbing on Utah’s Castleton Tower even used it as a modified haul bag—its ripstop nylon is as burly as it is light. Want more minimalism? The hip and stern straps are removable. 10 oz, 1,098 cu in; arcteryx.com
