Doing nearly anything in the outdoors requires some degree of preparation. Preparation for both expected situations (like lunch at a mountain viewpoint) and hypothetical circumstances (like a flat tire three miles into a bike ride). In both cases, you need to bring stuff with you and to do that, you’ll need a bag. Backpacks are the official bag of the outdoors, and they aren’t just for hiking either; there’s a backpack for every activity, from skiing and mountain biking to running and, well, backpacking. Right now, three of our favorite new packs are on sale at Huckberry for as much as 35 percent off.
Hydro Flask Journey Series Hydration Pack 20L
This year, the maker of some of our favorite water bottles decided to make its first hydration pack. We’re impressed with the results, and particularly like the comfy and breathable mesh back panel and overall rugged construction.
Rocky Mountain Underground Core Pack 15L
Rocky Mountain Underground began as a ski company but in recent years found that it can make some pretty damn good bags, too. The 15-liter Core Pack is geared toward riding bikes, but its compact size and sleek appearance make it perfect for shorter hikes and daily use as well.
Fjällräven Bergtagen 38L
The Bergtagen is a bigger pack for adventures that require lots of gear, like ropes, extra layers, additional meals and maybe an ice axe. Fjällräven made it with ski mountaineering in mind, but we like it for mountain excursions that don’t involve snow, too.
