When you first see that a backpack is from a hammock company, you'd likely get the idea that it's super-comfortable and lightweight. With the Hammock Bliss Ultralight Travel Daypack, you'd be right on both accounts.
The backpack folds into its own pocket so you can store it in small spaces like carry-on luggage, glove compartments and even a purse--it packs down to just 6 x 6 x 2 inches. It weighs just 6.5 ounces so it won't add much weight to your load. When an actual backpack is in order, you can unfold it into a decent-sized daypack that provides 1100 cubic inches worth of space.
This ultralight backpack is a very convenient option for those that hike or travel casually and want to have access to a backpack for carrying their belongings. Instead of being forced to lug along a big, heavy frame pack, one has an ultra-portable, lightweight solution whenever it's needed. If you think there's a chance that you might need a backpack on your trip, throw it in your pocket and be prepared.If you don't use it--you'll forget it's even there.
The backpack loads from the top and is made of durable, water-resistant nylon. It includes an interior pocket to store small items such as keys or wallet and two mesh side pockets. Double padded shoulder straps help keep you moving comfortably.
It certainly doesn't provide the support of a traditional suspension pack, but for casual use, it sure beats carrying all your clothes and gear by hand. And at just $30, it is quite competitively priced for what it provides.
