Delivering excellent on-and-off trail performance, the classic Mountainsmith Day lumbar pack has 800 cubic inches of storage capacity and excellent organizational features. The Day utilizes highly durable Cordura fabrication.
The waistbelt of the Day has a wide wrap-around style and utilizes an ergonomic pull system to provide on-the-go adjustment. The foam-padded, breathable waistbelt provides more support than comparable lumbar packs and remains comfortable to wear even on hot days.
Larger than traditional lumbar packs, the Day has a full 800 cubic inches of carrying capacity but still weighs well under 2 pounds.. Unlike full-blown daypacks it is compact enough that your movements remain uninhibited.
Featuring three separate compartments and two additional storage pockets, the Day offers multiple organizational options. A zippered pocket on the inside of the main compartment provides a hideaway for keys, coins and other valuables. Adjustable mesh side pockets feature an elastic closure and can accommodate 32 ounce water bottles (not included). A bungee attachment on the front of the pack allows you to carry a jacket, sweatshirt or additional gear.
With varied carrying options, the versatile pack can also be used as a shoulder bag, a briefcase or as an add-on pocket for a full-size backpack. Optional Mountainsmith Strapettes (sold separately) can be employed to serve as shoulder straps and provide extra support when heavy loads are being carried. A rain cover (sold separately) is available to protect the pack in inclement weather.

Real Customer Reviews
- Seems very well made, but just not comfortable for me
Likes: Seems like material is very durable, and well made. Good bit of room for a lumbar pack.
Dislikes: I wore this around the house with varying amounts of weight, and just could not find a comfortable way to wear this. The major problem is with any weight above what I would consider the bare minimum the top of the pack leans back away from your body. I made every adjustment conceivable with the straps and belt and could not compensate for this, which limits this packs ability big time! I also tried the pack with the Strapettes which definitely helped and made it more comfortable to wear, but basically made the lumbar pack into a mess of straps to navigate when taking on and off! Wanted to like this, but ultimately ended up returning.
