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.

    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!!!

    Great Daypack

    I have been looking for the perfect daypact that wasn’t heavy but wasn’t so light it collapsed on itself. I finally found it in the Daybreaker 20 ounce pack. I have used it on several day hikes and can’t say enough about the pack. The zipper Pouch in the lid Is perfect for items u want quick like snacks, maps, small first aid kit, or anything else you would like to store for quick grab items. I also like the internal zip pouch with a clip for my keys. There is also a pouch to hold a hydration bladder which can be removed or left in to store small items and a removal sit pad which helps with back support. Nice wide shoulder straps and love the shoulder strap pockets which are big enough to hold my iPhone 8 Plus. Loops on both sides of the stretch pouch in back hold carabiners to attach items on the outside. The only improvement I would make would be to add loops at the top to compliment the two hiking or ice ax loops at the bottom of the pack. Not a dealbreaker because you can put them under the edge of the lid before hooking it in place. If your worried about the extra 4 liter extension collar being filled and not being able to close the stationary lid for me it was of no concern. I filled it up and was still able to strap it down in place because of the extra length on the straps. I highly recommend the pack. I purchased the blue and the color they show is exactly the shade of blue you receive.

    Nice pack for back country skiing

    No frills, easy to use and highly dependable. The 210 ripstop is strong enough to not be damaged by shovels or other ice tools, and the side pockets are nice to hold bottles in a way that I'm able to reach them without taking the pack off but still secure enough I haven't lost one even in my inevitable tumbles down the slopes. This immediately became my go-to pack for trips into town or trying to summit Colorado mountains. I expect this pack to last many years
