Trek Light Gear

Bindle Daypack

After some quick and questionable research, we've learned that it's currently illegal to marry your backpack in at least 45 states in the US.

Which is unfortunate, because you're gonna love this thing. 

The Next Big Small Thing

The Bindle Pack™ is an incredible ultralight, ultra strong daypack offering plenty of room for everything you need for a day's adventure, including your hammock and all needed accessories.

While it's an ideal pack for a day hike on the trail, this extremely versatile backpack is designed for every day use. It's perfect for traveling, commuting to work, grocery shopping, cycling, music festivals and much more.

The best part? Just like our hammocks, the Bindle stuffs into its own tiny 3.5oz pouch you can fit in your pocket. It's okay to fall in love.



The Incredible, Unforgettable Bindle Daypack.

What happens when a lightweight lifestyle pioneer like Trek Light Gear decides to make an ultralight backpack? This.

Using the very same parachute nylon material that helped us revolutionize the hammock world, we created a daypack that forced the entire backpack industry to think twice when they use the words like 'lightweight' and 'travel-sized'. 

Strong. Ultralight. Designed for your lifestyle.

Little Life Saver

I keep the Bindle pack in my carryon bag when I fly. Then anytime the airline desk agent says we all have to check our carryon bags I am able to pull out my essentials (laptop, magazine, headphones, meds, etc) and keep them with me on the plane in this little guy. The pack has been all over the USA and all over the world with me from Papua New Guinea to India, to Peru, to all over Africa! It even went with me when I was a first responder in Puerto Rico. It's about 5 years old now lot's of travel regularly for my job and it still in good shape. Zipper, straps, and seams all holding up really well. This was a very good buy.

Thank you, Grant! Such a smart way to use the Bindle. Glad it's spent so many years traveling with you. :)
Great Daypack

We keep this daypack in the car to carry our waters and our snacks for those days we have errands or for road trips. When not in use, it stays folded up and hangs on a headrest. My seven year old likes to carry the day pack on the trip, so I love how far it adjusts. It can fit a lot of things in it! Perfect for day hikes and outings with my three kiddos.

Thanks so much, Kendra! Happy trails with your daypack!
Great Day Pack

This is the lightest day pack I've ever used. I took it on a couple day hikes to test it out and it held up nicely. I do wish there was a pocket for a water bottle, but for short day hikes, this wasn't a big inconvenience. I loved the "secret" pocket in the back and the straps feel nice and durable. I'll be taking this bag with me on some international trips and I can't wait!

Thanks for the feedback, Maya! Happy adventures with your new pack.

Fantastic day pack! I’ve taken it camping, hiking, music festivals. It’s the perfect little backpack and keeps great condition! Easy storage. Just wonderful

Best day pack

This is a great day pack to take on trips. Being so small it is easy to throw in your larger bag. I love the side zipper pocket to get to items more easily. Very light and comfortable to wear and washes well. I have bought this bag for each member of our family.
