- Product Review (submitted on January 21, 2014):
- I have used the RikSak several times hiking the Camino de Santiago in Spain and found it very useful and comfortable. First, I checked my full size pack on the plane, so I used the RikSak as my carry-on. On the trail, I occasionally took advantage of opportunities to slack-pack, sending my big pack ahead and only carrying the RikSak for the day. Otherwise, the RikSak was useful inside my full size pack, as a stuff sack for clothes or sleeping bag. It's super light weight made it possible for me to have the luxury of a day pack, with no weight penalty. The RikSak is durable and using it as a day pack, I can comfortably carry jacket, first aid kit, extra socks, water, snacks and rain gear. I like the lightly padded wide straps of the RikSak and find them an improvement over the narrow straps on the tiny Sea to Summit pack. The RikSak's price and quality are excellent. Thanks, Gossamer Gear, for another great product!
