CamelBak 2012 Fourteener Daypack
Camelbak has a reputation as being one of the best companies in terms of hydration products. The CamelBak Fourteener holds 3 liters of water in the built in Antidote hydration reservoir that comes with the pack. The Fourteener is a front access pack with has multiple organizational pockets, including easy access side pockets. This pack is designed to carry loads of between 10 and 25 pounds. It has side compression straps with areas for you to attach surplus gear with caribiners. Of the packs on this list, it’s a little on the lighter side so it is a great daypack but it won’t fare as well on an overnight excursion. On the bottom of the pack there are straps where you can attach your trekking poles, climbing rope, or an ice ax.
