I started looking for a few different names for this post because I have a day pack and some very UL gear and it’s still not big enough. So what’s it really good for? Maybe snacks and water when going to the beach so long as you use a micro towel and not a beach towel.@JupiterHikes uses a PalantePacks Joey. It’s 26L and he does many different types of hikes. What’s interesting is that he’s confident that where he is going and what he needs will fit in those compact 26L. He’s also spent a few extra bucks to make sure he has what he needs and nothing more. Albeit he’s added a fanny pack.
