    How to choose an overnight pack

    Designed to fit all your essential gear for an overnight stay under the stars, overnight packs are typically smaller, more compact and a lightweight option if you're looking for something a bit smaller than a multi-day hiking pack (which are typically meant for days of hiking and camping in the backcountry).

    Since you’re staying overnight, it’s important to consider a few features before picking your next hiking companion:

    • Capacity: With the lower end at 35L and the higher end at 55L (and lots of options in-between), the capacity you choose is dependent on how much gear you’re bringing and how many nights you’re hiking and camping for.

    • Fitting your pack: Comfort and stability are key when fitting your pack; while you can follow fitting guides at home, you may opt for a professional to fit your pack. It should fit snugly without any rubbing or discomfort.

    • Organization: Pockets and internal organization pouches are features to look out for so you can easily grab a new pair of socks or your first aid kit.

    • Hydration compatibility: When you’re keeping pace with friends to get to your campsite you don’t always want to stop for a drink, so picking a pack that’s compatible with hydration bladders is key to staying hydrated on the go.

    Shop overnight packs from brands like Osprey, Gregory, MEC, Black Diamond, Deuter, Salomon and The North Face.
