The K-Way Meru 25 is a compact, lightweight 25l daypack - perfect for a day trail. The pack sits comfortably on your back and provides good lower back support and has adjustable waist and chest belts, which helps to spread the load across your body, rather than putting the brunt of the pack weight on your lower back.
The Meru 25 has three compartments. A front pocket, big enough to accommodate a bottle of sunscreen, some snacks, toilet paper and our map. The main pocket has a parting for a hydration bladder and the accompanying incision in the side for the drinking tube. The main pocket comfortably held two fleece jackets, sandwiches and an extra water bottle - there are also two external carry pouches with compression straps that can easily take a 1 litre water bottle. At the bottom the back is the zipper for the bottom compartment, which could probably hold a mid sized towel.
The Meru also has a bright yellow rain cover at the bottom of pack (look closely - it's well hidden) and loop holes for walking stick at the back of the pack. All in it's a great little pack, light and comfortable to wear and more than adequate for a day hike.
