Another Amazing Product from HMG
After having such tremendous success with my 3400 Southwest pack, the Daybreak Pack is the third major HMG product I elected to put into my ultralight backcountry exploration quiver and I could not be happier with the decision. No other daypack shares the total package: comfort, durability AND ultralight.

Favorite Pack Evah
Carries beautifully. I've loaded it with three liters of water, stove and pot, lunch, snacks, and a couple of layers, and it doesn't even feel like wearing a pack. Extremely comfortable! Worth every penny, awesome.

Great Day Pack
I’ve used the pack now on several treks. I can easily say it’s the best pack and lightest I’ve ever had. I am very impressed at the smart design and quality.

Great daypack

Holds just enough clothing food and water for day out on trail. I like the big pockets for water bottles and it’s waterproof just like my junction pack.

Nice Bag - built well.

Love the bag. A bit too big for a day pack if I’m honest but I bought it because I love my southwest. Perfect for those very long day trips or just general outdoor adventures. Please make a slightly smaller bag HMG.

Lightweight, durable, easy to store and easy to use

With a large front pocket with a drawcord, a drawstring at the top of the side pocket, a zipper that opens to the side, and an internal computer storage pocket, this rucksack is very easy to use for both city use and overnight mountain trips.

Light and sturdy

I use this small backpack for traveling, day hiking and backpacking if I don’t need a shelter. I love this backpack. It’s light, holds water bottles easily in both pockets and most important to me is water proof
