Is it cringe of me to dayhike with my backpacking pack? I love the thing. It's super comfy, barely feels like a burden to me (weight wise) once strapped up and all, and lets me carry everything I could possibly want. Obviously I adjust what I take depending on the hike's length, but I find it silly to have to need to pay for a dayhike pack and a backpacking pack just to fit in. Is it really that much of a sin to just go out with my backpacking pack for everything?
>>
Do what you want, nobody fucking cares.
>>
>>2752436
This. Who cares? Also, do you know what dry run training is? You pack all your backpacking shit and just go for a hike. Just live life dude. We're all headed to the same place in the end.
>>

I only bring this up because while I was out on a trip I overheard a pack of women commenting on how one of the people they passed had such a huge backpack (I was getting ready to head out, they were coming back in)
>>
>>2752440
>listening to women

Don't do that
>>
>>2752440
lmao what are you 12? don't listen to women. your chances of getting laid increase when you decrease the relevance of their insanity.

People will think it’s odd and they are making fun of you behind your back
>>
I always have my pack, mind you it isn't a big one, it fits well and I need it to carry a deers legs and steaks out in, should I be so lucky.
>>
I think if i get one itds be a medium size one, those other onea while good can be at the poiint of too large and cumbersome. Just make two trips or dont be a cuck and survive in wild
>>
>>2752435
Get a smaller pack for day hikes. You think your full-size pack is comfortable but you don’t have a frame of reference. Smaller backpacks are designed to carry a load closer to the wearers center of gravity. They’re narrower, shorter, and rounded or tapered at the bottom (unless no thought went into the design, in which case the bottom will be flat). Your larger pack has to sacrifice that for space. And the issue is worse the larger your pack is. You can cope by cinching down your compression straps, but this is obviously just making the best of a mediocre situation.
>>
>>2752435
you can buy an appropriate one for 10$ on temu/walmart

>barely feels like a burden to me (weight wise)
bullshit. its 3-5 pounds heavier than lighter backpack. not to mention to extra sweat.

what do you even bring onto a dayhike?
I only bring water, walking sticks and maybe rain stuff and calories
>>
>>2752533
NTA, but my 48L pack is 2.3lbs with the brain (which I’ve removed). I still use a different pack for day hikes.

>what do you bring?
Rain jacket or umbrella, food, water, water filter, first aid kit, sunscreen, headlamp, hammock, change of socks, emergency tarp sometimes, fleece, beanie… so little that a smaller pack is absolutely justified. Not every day hike is a two hour stroll in nice weather, nor is it an all day affair starting at sunrise and ending after sundown. It’s not always during mild weather with no rain, nor is it always wind driven rain from nowhere. But the pack is always the same one.
>>
i go on day hikes (short walks in the woods) with my Karrimor saber 60-100 with the rocket pods on, fully loaded
>>
Whenever I see someone dayhiking with a backpacking kit I assume they're trying to condition themselves for the real thing.
>>
>>2752440
Why do you care about what random women think?
>>
>>2752533
For any hike where a day pack is suitable, an extra 3-5 lbs is negligable. Post wrists.

no pack without hip suspension will ever be more comfortable than a pack with hip suspension

Yes. Did I say otherwise?

Using the right tool for the job doesn’t fit the meme.
>>
>>2752435
I go on rucks with a heavy pack all the time. It's great training for bigger and longer trips. You'll be in better shape than normies who hike with a light pack or no pack all the time. Serious hikers do this all the time.
>>
>>2752654
Day packs don't have them.
>>
>>2753005
Therefore, day packs are never "the right tool for the job" except maybe on the normiest of urban strolls.
>>
>>2753005
Both of my daybacks (20L and 30L) have them
>>
>>2753005
Fucking retard, holy shit.

Don't worry about it. I've dayhiked a handful of times while wearing my external frame pack loaded up with books, just for the heck of it.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAH bubbas you're making me cry hahaha this board has apocalyptic levels of bubbaonic plague, imagine being this frail.
The only thing I would add is you should always get a pack somewhat larger than you need as to have a little space left when fully packed for the trip.
