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.

Simple and good

Very light as a result of simple design. Big external pockets are very useful. Great materials. Good value. I’m a fan.
