While carrying a pack is standard operating procedure for trail runners and ultrarunners, who need to stow water, nutrition, a lightweight jacket and first aid, most casual runners find the practice cumbersome… But the options for hydration packs have become so good and so diverse in the last decade that we find ourselves wearing them for even a quick five-miler when all we need to stash are keys and a phone. These six are among the best on the market, each with unique features that set them apart from the field.

Best Pack for Day Hikes: As avid fans of day hikes, we are firm believers in bringing along exactly what you need and nothing you don’t. The Osprey Syncro 10 isn’t the largest of the line, but it’s not the smallest either.

Kim Havell says she started her ski career as an alpine ski coach in the Telluride valley. From there, she gradually made the transition into freeskiing, climbing and ski mountaineering. Today, Kim says she has skied on all 7 continents – with first descents on 4 – and explored over 50 countries…Gear Institute caught up with her to find out a little more about her gear needs when out adventuring.

Gear Institute: Sounds like safety is job one for much of your gear—that’s something we like to see. Beyond those items, what do you carry? And more specifically, you get exposed to a ton of gear from sponsors—what items from those supporters do you really love?

Havell: I love my Adventure Medical Kit first aid kits. They are light, well-thought-out kits designed specifically for outdoor needs. I load everything into one of my Osprey Packs—the size and model depends on my specific plans, but they have a pack ideal for nearly every adventure.
