Re: [John Muir Trail] Lightweight day pack
- I have and like the Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Pack as well. I have used it mostly on bicycle tours where it was used for day hikes, as a laundry bag, bear bag, grocery bag, airline personal-item/carry-on, and stuff sack. Depending on how much I will carry in it and how often/far I will use it, I sometimes prefer the heavier (10 or 11 ounces depending on what year it was made) REI Flash 18 for the same purpose.

> I ended up ordering this Sea to Summit pack and received it today. It comes in at 2.4 ounces as advertised and packs down in a tiny integrated stuff sack. I loaded it with a few pieces of clothing, a couple of water bottles, first aid kit, and camera and it seemed comfortable enough. That should be enough for Half Dome, Whitney, or any side trips. So if anyone else is looking for a lightweight day pack, this is a good option IMO. It can serve as a stuff sack for clothing so it is dual use.
