I'm a petite woman and needed something light. This backpack holds my iPad, water bottle, etc. I have a huge problem with my neck and back and yet I found this to be quite comfortable. After a couple of days of museums and shopping, I didn't have any problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by veterantraveler2 Best of the crop!
Have had my day pack for more than a year and it is perfect. Hardy, handy, and the side pockets carry a bottle of water, or a smart phone, or the car keys snugly. Dressy enough to go anywhere; frees my hands and prevents aching shoulders. My only "wish" would be to have another good color alternative (such as dark green, dark red, or navy blue, etc). I'm buying a second one immediately. Please keep it in stock, LLB!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2ndHalf Great for a carry-on bag
My husband & I travel a lot by plane and this little backpack is perfect to use as my second carry-on piece of luggage. Then, once we're at our destination, I use it for day trips carrying a sweater, water bottles, or whatever the trip may call for. I love mine!

I loved this bag. Everything fit perfectly in it and it was easy to carry. Unfortunately someone broke into my car and stole it a week after I had it. I hope they are enjoying it as much as I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MLovesM Best Mommy Bag out there!
I purchased this originally to carry my essentials, a beverage, and my larger sized camera around for vacation. This bag has met my expectations and exceeded it. We call it the Mary Poppins bag. Things just keep going into this bag and there is still room. On a day-to-day basis I carry 2 diapers, a hard wipes case, a sippy cup, an extra juice box, a photo brag book, my cell phone, extra car key using the clip on the outer pocket, my wallet, lady essentials, chapstick, a toy or two (sometimes even a ball), a separate wallet sized bag of flash drives that I have to keep with me, pens using the provided slots, extra credit cards using the hidden pocket inside and even have space to stick my toddler's LL Bean Rain coat inside while we are in the stores. Whew! But yes, even with all that inside it is not snug, and it is comfortable and light to wear on my back. Allowing my hands to be free. I can even put a changing mat inside if I think I will need it. Just a perfect, perfect bag. I will be ordering another to keep for when this wears out. So far, I have used it everyday for a year and it is perfect. I wish it were machine washable, but that isn't a necessity. Just love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JaneNY well designed beautify daypack for kids
I loved everything about this small backpack: the sea glass color, the design--easy for organization, except for the small size. I would have kept it if I had small children or planned to use it to stroll the street. I needed a replacement for the backpack I used for work so had to return it to get the stowaway day pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hones Very nice (small) backpack
I wanted a dressier-looking backpack for travel and outings where I want to be hands free. This is perfect - about the size of medium-large handbag. The fabric is great - I love the charcoal grey color (it's not actually black). Lining fabric is very pretty and it seems to have enough pockets without going overboard. My only tiny complaint is that the water bottle pockets are a bit small... only the smallest of my aluminum water bottles will fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HolleyA So close...
I loved everything about this pack online. I read and understood the measurements. However, upon receiving it (which was super fast ! Thank you) I was completely disappointed. The opening to the pack is so small.
I purchased the matching Wayside wallet and couldn't fit it in the pack except up on its end and then nothing else could fit next to it because the opening couldn't open any further to turn the wallet inside the pack.
The material is great, the color is way more grey than I expected (thought it would be more black) and the organization is good. It probably could have used a small zipper or open pocket in the front flap.
So, in closing, if you have small items you plan on putting in this pack then I highly recommend it. My wallet, standard checkbook size and the wayside wallet, just won't fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GDub Great small backpack/large purse
I've been wanting to replace a decrepit quilted backpack/purse but until the Wayside Day Pack nothing worked. The Wayside Day Pack is just the right size to hold everything I want to carry around with me and still have room for a library book and a snack. It's lightweight and well-designed with lots of pockets in the right places. The only thing lacking is an open pocket on the back to slip maps or tickets into, but having to open a zipper for those things is not a real problem. I haven't yet used the Wayside Day Pack for hiking, but it should be just the right size for short day hikes where all you need is water, snacks, and a light jacket.
