I have been on the look out for a little day pack for when I am flying, on the train and day tripping. I want my hands to be free and I don't want to worry about handbags and the safety around that when I am in Rome and on the train etc. This is a small pack but will hold my waterbottle and snacks, maps and jackets etc. and it fits rather comfortably in every regard. I also knew I wanted a lovely bright colour. Nothing better than RED to make this girl happy. The great thing about this little inexpensive purchase is that I will be able to use this pack for trail running and day trekking when I get home.
