From urban scavenger hunts to trail running to day-long tours of ancient ruins, you want the sleek and speedy Arc'teryx Aerios 7 Daypack backing you up throughout the adventure. This lightweight, body-hugging pack never strays far, even when you're romping over rough-and-tumble terrain. Fill your hydration bladder with the day's preferred beverage, and throw in an extra pair of socks, a few energy bars, and a long-sleeve top in case the sun sets before you're finished.
The body consists of 210D ripstop nylon to resist rips and snags, and is coated with silicone so it sheds water like your cat sheds in July. In high-wear areas, 100D mini-ripstop nylon offers support and reinforcement when conditions turn gnarly. Good weather or bad weather, you put a pack on your back and start hoofing it, soon you'll be sweating. To lessen the sweat, the backpanel on this minimalist daypack consists of Aerofoam, a 900D single filament mesh heat-set into three dimensional peaks and valleys. Even if you're stuck in the flatlands, these dips and swells maximize airflow and minimize perspiration-produced discomfort. Similarly, Aerform mesh shoulder straps support rapid drying so you can hike more comfortably and for longer.
An elasticized modular waist belt can be positioned higher on your belly when your bounce-factor reaches fasten-seatbelt levels. The bungee on the back either compresses the bag when you've got room or holds a shell when the weather is iffy. Hydration-compatible, the bladder and hose clips enhance the Aerios 7's stability as you race to the next clue in your urban adventure challenge.
