A lightweight and innovative offering for technical day hiking, the Exped Skyline 15 offers over 900 cubic inches of storage capacity and employs a unique suspension system that lets you make adjustments to maximize ventilation or pull the pack in for a closer fit.
Backpacks with suspended back systems offer excellent ventilation but often offer less stability than the “full contact” backpanels often used on packs. The Skyline 15 features Exped’s Switchback suspension, a hybrid design that allows the suspension to stand away from your body when ventilation is preferred or sit closer to the body for better load control. A fully padded hipbelt and contoured shoulder straps provide further adjustability to dial in fit.
The panel-loading main compartment has wide-open access up top through a large u-shaped zipper and can also be conveniently reached through a front zippered entry. Internal pockets and dual side external pockets provide additional storage options. Other features include integrated trekking pole attachments and a stowable rain cover. A lined internal pocket and a drinking tube pass-through make the pack hydration compatible (hydration system not included).
The Exped Skyline 15 daypack is available in your choice of color options.

Real Customer Reviews
- Innovative Day Backpack
Likes: I was looking for a small daypack that had a rain cover, trekking pole holder, and hydration system compatibility.
I started looking at the Osprey Talon 22 but ended up at the Skyline 15. Unlike the Osprey, this one had an internal frame (HDPE frame sheet with spring steel reinforcement) and a rain cover.
I appreciate that the hip pockets are larger than normal, and I like all the pockets (9), especially the two internal mesh. The details such as glow-in-the-dark feature at the end of the pulls is a nice touch. Finally, I can get stuff from the bottom thanks to the quick access door-zipper in the front.
Dislikes: No Torso Length Adjustment (Though Backlength Range is 16.5 - 20.5 in)
- Nice Daypack w/ fun gimmick
Likes: -Good size for day hike/bike/adventure
-Hip pockets for easy access to snacks/phone
-Included rainfly incase you get caught in weather
-Lots of adjustment straps to get it fitting perfectly
- Great technical backpack!
Likes: Adjustability and interior pockets for organization makes you maximize the small space on this great daypack
- Great New Design
Likes: Bought for DH. He loves it! Great fit. Extremely well padded hip belt (reminiscent of Osprey's AG series). Equal padding & contoured pack straps. All packs' straps should be slightly S-Curved - not just 'women's specific'. Huge,well-placed side zip pockets & gigantic side "water" pockets. Many inner compartments. Front lower-side zip access to main top-loading compartment. Great color blue, too! Many + features for relatively small-med pack. Would recommend highly.
Dislikes: Wish it came in smaller sizes for women w/somewhat smaller frame & less carry needs.
