When we set out to design the Daybreaker we wanted a daypack that could be used for a day hike but was also versatile enough to be used for traveling, days around town, peak bagging in the mountains, or hut to hut trips.
The Daybreaker is Six Moon Designs take on a clean, simple day pack. We set out to create a pack that was traditional in design but also features more modern, lightweight materials.
The Daybreaker daypack is the result of years of traveling, backpacking, and outdoor adventures. We took the time to think of what we liked and did not like out of the day packs we had been using. The side pockets are a great example of this. They are deep enough to keep your water bottle from falling out when putting your pack in an overhead bin and angled just the right way so you can still reach your bottle while hiking. Hate losing your keys? We do too. That's why we put glove hooks in both zippered pockets. Everything is wet and you need to rest? Just pull out the removable sit-pad and kickback. We just really enjoy this pack and think you will too.

Perfect for my day hiking needs. Also, pretty stoked on the top expanding up making it around a 30 liter bag. Looking forward to using it for my primary bag on an upcoming trip.
Great whether you have a little or a lot to carry! It’s extremely light and a super cool bonus is the removable sitting pad!
My second SMD backpack (OG Swift!) and 4th SMD product, this bag exceeding a high expectations set by those. It's a bit big for just a quick hike, but the lazy dog doesn't carry his water so I'm usually loaded up. This bag would carry a sub10lb weekend load ok - but I bought it for my day hike habit. In this use I don't mind a little extra weight for a lot extra usability. Pockets and straps and such are well-done, all things you need, little of what you don't. The quality & details like the 3D lid elevate this from a cottage-gear bag to "is that from a retail store?" still at the cottage-gear weight, and deep pockets for the dual 1L bottles, sit pad etc. I don't LOVE shoulder pockets, and these aren't removable. But they hold a phone or dog cookies well so I'll adjust I'm a really picky shopper and keep coming back to this company for the same reasons. We balance a lot of variables (cost, weight, ... ) and they get them right
I got this for 3 , perhaps 4 season use, which would include mountain hiking in Maine. This pack is simple but has all the features you really need. Enough separate pockets but not too many. I particularly like the big outside pockets, which are big enough to stow lightweight crampons and ski poles. Having said that I would caution that unless the poles really collapse they could tip out easily if snagged. The pockets on the shoulder straps were just right for camera and Inreach GPS The pack is terrifically lightweight without seeming flimsy, less than half the weight of its predecessor. I do a lot of bushwacking and I have no concerns that this will shred. The waist belt and sternum straps are simple but do the job. The buckles are small and not to be done with mittens.
This daybreaker bag was excellent. I went on a 3 day backpacking trip and lemme tell you this back held up greatly. I’m a 5’6” skinny male and i packed this thing to the brim with equipment. It felt comfortable at all times. I felt like a badass wearing this too, it has like a tactical look that i love. But overall great bag
