Adults' L.L.Bean Stowaway Ultralight Day Pack is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good lightweight pack I bought this day pack for shorter hikes, and it fits the bill for that. However, it seems almost a little too light and flimsy. For example: if you only put a water on one side, then it will definitely be lop sided. Also, I wish it had a firm bottom liner in it. It's ok, but I thought it would be a little sturdier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! Super light, super strong. Holds just enough. Very comfortable to wear when it’s nearly empty and when it’s stuffed full. Perfect for a day hike. Only recommendation would be to make the side pockets deeper. My taller water bottles often popped right out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I've had the regular size Stowaway Day Pack for several years which was brought me to this one. That one has been and continues to be my go-to. While I knew the form factor was smaller, I had high hopes for a Stowaway 2.0. I returned it for several reasons. First, there are no external zip pockets. Sometimes, it's nice to be able to unzip a pocket without having to access the main compartment. While the item photos do not depict a pocket, I did not realized how much I missed having one. Second, when partially filled, it did not carry well. Third, I did not like the straps on this one compared to my regular Stowaway. Sure, they are mesh and breathable. However, I prioritize comfort over anything and these straps were not even close. I think the deal breaker was how cumbersome it was to unzip the backpack. It took too much effort with the way the zippers are configured. Honestly, if they re-sized the regular stowaway by 80% of its size, roughly 18L, it would make me a Bean believer once again. Keep everything the same and I'll be first in line to order. I prioritize function over form. Yes, this ultralight accomplishes a minimalist carry. However, it comes at the expense of utility. I definitely can see where this might work for some. Unfortunately, I was not one of them.
