Is the forecast for your planned hiking day looking like rain? Do you live in Seattle? Do you like to always be prepared? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions (I know I did), then you should totally check out The North Face Base Camp Hot Shot Backpack. Constructed of the same laminated, water-resistant nylon as the legendary Base Camp Duffel, the BC Hot Shot is a bomber daypack that's built to last. It features a laptop / hydration sleeve in the large main compartment and a smaller compartment with organization, because TNF knows that you like to be able to find your stuff. Just in case the 30 L internal volume isn't enough for all of your gear, the Hot Shot has an external webbing daisy chain to clip on extra equipment. Talk about awesome!
Phthalate-free TPE laminate, 1680D ballistics nylon Pronunciation: "THAL-ate." That silent "Ph-" is a real killer.
Large main compartment with internal mesh pockets Compatible with most 15" laptops
Secondary compartment with organization
Side mesh water bottle pockets
Durable, water-resistant zippers
Removable sternum strap with safety whistle on buckle Because you like to always be prepared, right?
