      I use an old REI day pack that isn't made anymore. Every once in a while I look at replacements becasue it isn't going to last forever. I like it becasue it has 2 water bottle pockets on the sides, and another small storage pocket on the back, so you don't need to dig thru the body of the pack to get to them. I also like that they totally zip shut -- nothing will ever fall out of em.

      For day hikes I use any old thing. Usually grab one of the kids old school backpacks. (Those decade old mozzarella sticks I find in some hidden crevice can come in handy :) )

      Once I grabbed a mini bag from when they were really little. The straps were too small to wear as a backpack so I just slung it over one shoulder and walked on. It's all good.

      I have a Rei Traverse that I use. It sounds just like yours max.

      It's very similar -- but my side water bottle pockets are taller and also have a zipper that totally closes it -- nothing will ever fall out of it.
