Black Diamond Octane Pack - 2011 Closeoutis rated5.0out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromElegant DesignI decided to upgrade from my 20+ year old Dana Design Colter because I wanted a daypack that could more easily accommodate a hydration bladder. This is what I would call a larger daypack (or it could be considered a small overnight bag) and it is a bit large to use as a running pack. I felt the pocket design and over-all design was quite functional. The way the hip belt attaches to the pack, allowing movement, is brilliant (it really works). I'd like to see more than one pocket on the front of the pack (there is one on the front of the hip belt but I'd like to see two hip belt pockets and also some on the front straps). The pack is a relatively heavy and actually weighs a bit more than my "ultra-light" full-sized backpack - but it is extremely comfortable - highly recommended.

Rated5out of5byfromYes, the suspension really is amazingsnagged this with my REI dividend last time around. Thought it looked a little gimmicky but I have been looking for a good sized daypack and smaller overnight pack. This fit both needs. As soon as I tried it on I couldn't wait to hit the trails. This pack has been great for day hikes. I have been able to scramble, climb, run, and watch out for my 3 year old son unencumbered by the pack. It really lets you move. I have not tried an overnight yet but will in October. I have packed it though and was able to fit my gear in and keep right around 25 lbs with the following: REI travel down REI Passage 1 w/ footprint and fly MSR Dragonfly w/ 11 oz fuel GSI Outdoors Halulite Microdualist Cookset Rain jacket and atom LT hoody Sawyer squeeze water filter 2 L camelbak in hydration sleeve 2 32 oz nalgenes in side pockets Food, headlamp, first aid, etc. Throwing the list in so people can get an idea of what it fits. I use sea to summit compression sacks to get things down to size but the bag is roomy. The stretch sleeves are also very roomy and the angle of the side pockets is perfect. Also, having a little one, I really appreciate the easy access hip pouch. Can't say enough about the bag and for the life of me cannot figure out why REI can't move them. Your gain if you pick one up. I talked my buddy into grabbing one when it went under $70 for a few days.
