Travel Forums Travel Gear Urgent day pack help needed!!! :)

Hi...I have a Vango Nando 60+10 which has little loops on the straps... Now I need a daypack (15 or 20 litres max) which can clip on from its own straps onto these loops...which means the daypack will sit on my chest with its straps attached to the straps of my big backpack

ANY HELP ?? I'm so stuck and i leave to Oz in a few weeks :(

You're honestly going to haul 85 - 90 litres of stuff around?! I can't imagine being attached to a boat anchor like that...

Good luck and have fun.

Adapt any daypack you like using caribiner clips and other fixings available from most outdoor shops?

Plus I agree with Terry. I'd be travelling with around 40 litres personally, although you didn't ask for advice on that aspect so feel free to tell us to butt out!

Hi hi,

I second Andyf.
I'm traveling with an Eagle Creek Packable Daypack, who is my best travel accessory so far. It's really cheap, and the quality is good! Plus, it's packable and extra, extra, extra light.

I'm going to second what the others have said and say that that sounds like wayyy too much weight. Honestly, I just use a mid-sized purse as my daypack - it slides into my sleeping bag at night to be safe, or the top of my pack which gets locked up and is with me while on the move. Allows enough room for a couple of maps, camera, a small guidebook if necessary, and key travel documents (money, passport, medical insurance, etc) Keep it cross-body and it feels more comfortable to me, never has to be taken off - even sitting for a bite to eat! - and is very inconspicuous.

Hope that helps.
