Small pack for day hikes

Hey Guys here is a daypack I have been using for a while:


This daypack is for the large greenbelts and city parks in and around Austin Texas. These large parks are technically in the city limits and there are a lot of people who might freak out if they see someone with a military style bag.
I also use this as my work GHB as i can keep it in my office with me without drawing attention to it, i take it in every monday and bring it home every friday and leave it locked in a file cabinet at my desk that way i always have something around just in case. Of course this really only has to get me to my car where there is a larger get home bag but who knows i might not be able to make it to the car. The bag is intended for a one use item and none of the items are for long term survival its just in case i get stuck out in the woods overnight.  The great thing is the whole pack weighs in at about 5 lbs so you forget your carrying it.  That does not include water weight.
