The Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 30 is an excellent pack for day hiking. It could also work well as an overnight pack for a minimalist backpacker. This pack is waterproof with a rainfly, thanks to OutDry technology. There are plenty of straps to attach climbing gear, ice axe, hiking poles, camera tripod or other items. My primary use case for this daypack is transporting my camera gear and lenses in a waterproof pack. The pack is very lightweight and comfortable. My only gripe is the mechanism that is used to open and close the main compartment. It’s not a problem, after becoming used to using it though. #MountainHardwear
