Why We Like It

The Arete™ is a simple, lightweight daypack that's perfect for all-day adventures like sightseeing a foreign city or festivals & concerts. The rucksack closure gives it a bit more style than other hydration packs, without compromising functionality. Three external zippered pockets provide just enough organization for all your daily carries. Daisy chains allow you to strap additional items or layers to the pack if need be (check out the Night Ize Gear ties).

Apart from the awesome 1.5 L included hydration reservoir, my favorite thing about this pack is that it easily folds up to tuck into your luggage for your next trip.
