This is a great and cheap option for a small daypack. Osprey is known for their packs so the fact that they can deliver a pack under 30 dollars with still a lot of needed features makes this a trustable item.

The coolest thing about this daypack is that it packs into one of its own zip pockets. This makes it easy to throw into your luggage as a backup pack in case you want to venture out of the hotel or have a spontaneous hike that your other purse or backpack just doesn’t cut it for the outdoors. It comes with dual side water bottle pockets and a main pouch. The shoulder straps are lightly padded. Honestly it all seems like a great value for 30 bucks.

Osprey Remnants Simple Tote and Everyday Tote

The difference between these two totes is the shape and the pocket location. On the Simple Tote the shape is a bit of a more wide and shorter tote with a zipper pocket located on the outside of the tote. The everyday tote as a non zipper pouch located on the inside of the tote and it is a more of a tall and skinny tote.

Both totes are an easy and packable way to have a tote that can be easily washed and not worried about due to the ripstop material. It’s a great option for beach trips or just throwing random stuff over your shoulder or into the car.

Simple Tote

Price: $20.00

Zipper sacks are a hit right now because they allow for things to be organized. I use these for both clothes in suitcases and random electronics cords. Osprey is known for their smaller packable bags so this will still be a great option just for cheaper.
