Daybreaker Daypack

20 oz - 580g Daypack

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.

    Loving my new Daybreaker

    Two things hit me when I first used this pack: it is roomy and it is incredibly light for day back! I broke in the pack during a trip to the Rockies--I used it on the plane as my carry-on, and then out on the trails for day hikes. I loved how easily it expands and contracts to fit my use. I liked how it kept the weight off my shoulders. I like the secret key/card pocket. The top pocket was roomy enough for a large map, and anything else I needed quick access to. Loved having super easy access to my phone for pics in the shoulder pockets. Great pack--looking forward to having it for my future adventures.

    Daybreaker Daypack (black)

    Well made. Just the right size for a day (or 3) out on my local trails.

    An ideal pack for hiking — in the city or the wild

    This is a really great, super utilitarian backpack. Two friends and I went on a week-long trip to Mexico City with just these packs as our personal items—no other carry-ons of any kind. They worked great. The primary inner pocket is well designed; items stack upwards rather than outwards, distributing the weight nicely. What I really like is that there are also a lot of smaller pockets (including one that hangs down inside the main cavity), giving you a lot of options for storing items that you want to keep separate or to which you want quicker access. Other pros: - Really lightweight - Great, comfortable+breathable padding for the shoulders and back - The elastic water bottle pockets on the sides are great and very versatile Cons: - can't think of any! Absolutely recommend.

    Versatile Bag for Multiple Activities, My Go-To

    I’ve used the Daybreaker in three different capacities: as a my sole piece of luggage for international travel, as a day hiking pack, and as a school bag. It has carried my passport, my Tevas, and my textbooks. In each of those roles it has served me well, with one tiny exception. If this is as far as you read, well… of the day packs I’ve worn, this is my favorite. As luggage: It’s as expandable as it is compressible. It fits a ton of stuff, but also can roll up to be put in another pack or under the seat in front of you. Deep outer pockets and secret inner pockets keep valuables secure. Doesn’t attract attention As a hiking pack: Love the big, stretchy side pockets for oversized water bottles and fishing gear. Convenient top pocket for phone / map / etc. Waist belt and chest straps, while small and not massively supportive, definitely help at the end of the day As a school bag: Coolest looking bag on campus Without any rigidity to speak of, it does tend to cave on itself if weight is not distributed well. Like just having one textbook in the main pocket. Front outer pocket hard to reach into while bag is closed. But just put your pencils in the top pocket dude! This bag is more comfortable than any day pack I’ve used and that’s my favorite thing about it. I probably use it way beyond it’s ____scope but hey, it gets the job done. Usually there is always something in a bag that leaves me wanting. Can’t find it here.

    Awesome Pack

    I was looking for a pack that was light but would be stiff enough to not collapse. I found that with this pack. I like that he collar will expand for the extra 4 liters. Although the lid is stationary it is big and flexible enough to accommodate the extra height and still clip shut as it should. This pack also has daisy chains to attach carabiners for carrying extra gear on the outside.The lid has a nice roomy zipper pouch for extras. There is also a small zipper pouch inside the pack for keys or small objects as well as a removal water bladder pouch, however I left it in and use it for small items so I don;t have to dig to find them. I like the stretch mesh better that a fish net type material. I have an iPhone 8 Plus and it fits perfect in the shoulder pouch. I am 5'3" and the pack fits me well. I really love this pack and highly recommend it!!!
