Summer is in full swing, which means it’s time to start planning some adventures… The best daypacks are purpose built for exploring, travel, commuting, and everything in between. We’ve picked a handful of our favorites and done all the testing and legwork for you. Now you just have to load up and find your own wilderness.
Bike Commuter: Osprey Radial 26
We spent much of May riding eighteen miles to and from the office every day. Every mile was accomplished in comfort with the redesigned Osprey Radial 26. From the harness to the internal organization, this pack is built for serious bike commuters. A padded laptop compartment fits up to a 15 inch laptop, with an additional zippered tablet slot. The main compartment fit a change of clothes (who wants to show up to the office in sweaty spandex?), a sketchbook, and lunch with ease. On the outside the Lidlock helmet clip and water bottle side pockets kept everything within reach when it came time to get back on the road.
