Venture Pal Lightweight Hiking Backpack

This Venture Pal Lightweight Hiking Backpack is perfect to take everything you need for a short hike, long walk, or a trip to the pool. It is designed with a waterproof inner compartment to put wet or sweaty clothes in, and packs up easily so you can take it with you anywhere you go.

These Lightweight Hiking Backpacks are perfect for travel. They are small enough to fold up and keep in your suitcase, and that means you can use them for day trips or just hitting the grocery store. My area recently banned plastic bags (which is awesome) and I keep one of these Backpacks in my vehicle to use as a grocery bag.

When it comes to being ready to take a day trip or go for a hike, being able to carry the gear you need is critical, and these Backpacks are perfect to bring everything you need with you. It is lightweight, but has an internal volume of 40 liters, putting it in that perfect “goldilocks” space to carry a lot, but not too much.

Lightweight Hiking Backpack Scoring

I love my Lightweight Backpack so much I bought one for every member of my family for vacation. We have a family policy of carry on luggage only so we don’t get stuck at baggage claim. These Backpacks are perfect for once you are at your destination and want to bring suntan lotion, water, or other items wherever you go.

When it comes to survival it will likely have a low impact on survival, which is why I’m ranking it 199/1000. On the hand, I don’t go anywhere without one, so maybe I should have ranked it higher.

  • 40 liter total volume in lightweight durable pack.
  • Includes one waterproof pocket. Perfect for wet or sweaty clothes. Made of high quality tear and water resistant nylon fabric.
  • Heavy duty metal zippers.
  • Weighs only 0.7 pounds and easily folds into its own pocket.
