Great purchase Review by Nathaniel

Though I've been profusely shedding weight from my backpack recently, one thing I cannot give up is a packable day pack (I know, I can hear you hyper extra ultralight fellows laughing already). I use it in camp, around camp, or of course, on day hikes. I find it indispensable, but at about 10 ounces, my REI flash 18 was just too heavy. I absolutely love the pack, and still use it around town, biking, traveling, and day hikes, but for backpacking, the riksak was an extremely cheap and easy way to shed half a pound from my pack. The riksak is very well constructed, extremely comfortable, water resistant, and suprisingly spacious! The extra thin foam in the shoulder straps is a nice touch as well as the combined chest strap and should tightening straps, a testament to gossamer gear's attention to detail and intuitive design. Also, this pack is suprisingly sturdy for its weight and materials, albeit I haven't thrown it around.

An excellent, multifunction pack that I will enjoy for years.

Thanks!

Excellent for super ultralight backpacking and travel Review by ManiacJWJ

Because of recent back surgery, I carry most of my gear in a lumbar pack. All my bulky light items (<3 lbs) including my sleeping bag, GG Sleeping pad, my silk liners and my tent go in the RikSak.

I also used the RikSak to carry my iPad and other light items when I was traveling in Europe for 3 weeks on business.

It handled both with ease and comfort. See www.hikingfreedom.com (Posted on 5/2/12)
Excellent bag Review by Gadget

I have owned the RikSak for approximately 3 months now, and have put it through several day hikes and overnight "death marches". The simple design works very well, and the wide shoulder straps add noticeable comfort versus competitors products; when looking at the value of this high quality piece of gear versus say a cuben fiber sack of the same volume, the RikSak offers virtually the same weight for a fraction of the price, and, with a little care, will last several years.

Good stuff (sack)! Review by JerryW

I really like this unique bag. The material and stitching are a bit delicate so you do have to look after it, but provided you do it should last OK.. recommended!
I was not sure if it would be comfortable without any adjustments whatsoever (eg sternum strap) but in practice it has been just fine. (Posted on 3/24/12)
Awesome! Review by Mud

Took this little thing out for a hike last week, I absolutely love it! So light it's ridiculous. Loaded it up with an Arc'teryx Theta AR, trail mix, beef jerky, donuts, Fleece, 32 oz water bottle, small first aid kit, and leather gloves. Even with it stuffed, the pack still felt super comfortable, I feel it has to do a lot with the width of the shoulder straps.

My only complaint would have to be with the material, it scuffs easy. But if you take care of it, I think this would last a long time.

Thanks for making awesome gear Gossamer, I'll be returning for more in the future! (Posted on 1/31/12)

Bought three last spring and it is always my first go to pack. From over nights and airplane carry ons.... Now they have them in black! I guess I need one more! The cargo to weight ratio is the best you'll find (Posted on 1/19/12)

This pack is perfectly simple. As others mentioned, I use it as a stuff sack for my sleeping bag when I hike. I then have a daypack to take the essentials when I wander. I couldn't be happier withnthis pack! (Posted on 1/6/12)

If you've ever needed a basket on your road bike, stuff this little beauty into your tool bag under your seat. (Posted on 9/13/11)

I've been using the Riksak for over a month and love it. I use it as a stuff sack for my sleeping bag when I hike so I always have a great little daypack with me when I venture out. I don't hike without it anymore! (Posted on 6/10/11)

A functional day pack for little more weight than a stuff sack. Used it for day hiking from a base camp with water, lunch, jacket, etc. Very light and straps are comfortable. (Posted on 6/7/11)
