Home>>Daypacks for Adventure Racing, Trail Running and Endurance Competitions
Typically, I attempt to match the mandatory packing list and the race length against (anticipated hours to complete) one of the packs I own. Most adventure races, marathon trail races and endurance mountain bike have mandatory gear lists as well as minimum requirements for water on-hand for the start of the race. The GoLite 24 Pack listed below has received excellent reviews from individual users as well as Adventure Sport Magazine.  I have used a similarly sized (1200 c.u.) hydration pack which is more than adequate for 24 hour races as well as peak bagging in summer and early fall months.

Technical Daybacks>>

Bottom Line: Match the race requirements and your personal needs to find the smallest and lightest pack available.
