Watch my attempt to pack one of these packs with gear for an overnight backcountry hiking trip.


I’m excited to announce our October gear Giveaway.  Our good friends at CampSaver have graciously donated this very light weight Mountain Lite 30L Backpack from EXPED worth $180. The 30L size is ideal to use as a day pack for hiking, backcountry skiing or boarding. When this pack arrived at my door step I wanted to keep it instead of running this giveaway but that would not be fair, would it?

    I used a prototype Exped pack for two months and loved it, but I had to give it back. This looks beefier, but still nice and light.

  13. Barbara De Rossi said on October 28, 2013 10:47 pm:

    I started hiking “seriously” just last weekend. It was the right crew and I enjoyed a lot. I just want to do it again and that backpack would be the right one for me.

    Awesome pack!!

  16. Dawn Trautman said on October 29, 2013 1:02 pm:

    I could use a smaller pack… mine is too big for small trips and I end up carrying too much stuff since it fits!

  17. Brad said on October 29, 2013 1:51 pm:

    I have just started hiking with my kids, and it would be great to have a nice backpack to take on day trips.

  18. Phil said on October 29, 2013 2:34 pm:

    Metal pull tabs for bag closure…bomber! Looks like a great minimalist rig!

  19. Enrique said on October 29, 2013 2:48 pm:

  22. lori b said on October 30, 2013 11:52 pm:

  23. paprheron said on November 3, 2013 5:07 pm:

    Nice pack!great for those short trips and if you super ultra lite for anything

  24. dbasty said on November 4, 2013 10:29 pm:

    I’d use this as a day pack while treeplanting! light enough to not be a burden yet solid enough to withstand the elements

  25. Nikki Hoeppner said on November 5, 2013 9:49 am:

    I like how you have different options for strapping things like snowshoes on to the outside. Biggest pain with my daypack that I have, nothing ties on it nicely

  26. Steve said on November 5, 2013 11:49 am:

    The pack looks very versatile. Agree with Nikki that the outside straps look effective.

  27. Becky said on November 5, 2013 12:35 pm:

    Look very comfortable even for short people. Lol

  28. Debra 'Kibort' Studniarz said on November 5, 2013 1:21 pm:

  30. melikegarfield said on November 5, 2013 8:28 pm:

    I’ve starting hiking in the last year and actually need something like this to help me survey some of the woods for my grandparents who have left a bunch of land unattended for years. I have very little equipment and this backpack would be an awesome start.

  31. Brian Czernik said on November 5, 2013 8:32 pm:

    My oh my…if you saw what I currently use for a backpack you would know how bad I need a quality backpack. Of course probably everyone entering needs/could use one 🙂

  32. C Doyon said on November 6, 2013 8:20 am:

    Comment from a frenchie… Ce sac me semble vraiment bien, et j’avoue êtes séduite par sont “lite side”! 🙂 J’en veux un!!!

    I should win this Amazing Backpack so my husband and I can have outdoor adventures together. Hiking, camping, fishing and learning all nature’s wondrous secrets. We have raised 4 lovely children who are grown and independent. Our youngest child is in his 2nd year of university. My husband and I never had a honeymoon or travelled much as you can imagine. With 4 children everything has been focused on their needs. Two years ago my husband and I started hiking and this has been such a peaceful and restorative experience. It is at these moments that we connect with the people we love in a deeper way. As the purity and the grandness of nature is so awesome, it inspires your heart in a profound manner of joy. This backpack would be the perfect essential item for our hikes together. Thank-you to the sponsors, hosts and everyone who contributed to make this contest happen, Cheers!

  34. rosannepm said on November 7, 2013 2:25 am:

    I’d like it for my son who recently studied abroad and would like to visit the people he met in their states and countries. This is a great day pack

  35. Scott Yates said on November 7, 2013 3:43 am:

    I’m lucky enough to have a large pack I bought at a garage sale for multi-day hikes. I also have a snowboard backpack which isn’t bad for day hikes but we all know that good gear does help make experiences better. I would definitely appreciate it.

  36. Katie said on November 12, 2013 2:09 pm:

    I’m about to travel to Peru and need to buy my first pack ever. Plus red is my favorite color so i’d rock it through the countryside!

  37. Jill Myrick said on November 12, 2013 7:05 pm:

    My husband and I travel and hike regularly.
    This would be perfect for taking with us. I know he would love it as would I.


  38. Maegan Morin said on November 12, 2013 8:38 pm:

    I would like to win because we do a lot of hiking and this would be great! Its looks really comfortable!

  39. Anna H. said on November 12, 2013 10:37 pm:

    I would love this pack to store my gear and lunch while out on the ice or snow with my kites, looks like exactly what I need

  44. Przemek Mroz said on November 13, 2013 9:16 pm:

    I would love this pack! I need to retire my ratty old pack…

  45. Laura said on November 13, 2013 10:29 pm:

    This looks fabulous (anything RED is, in my opinion!) and would be perfect for gathering up our little troop of 7 and hitting the trails. It’s difficult without the right gear for everybody when everybody wants to go! The right pack could make the difference between staying stationary and heavenly hiking. Thanks for the opportunity and for sharing with others what you’d rather keep for yourself! Magnanimous of you!

  46. Barry Boyd said on October 5, 2017 2:09 pm:

    This would be a great asset to have!
