I’m not a fan of frills. The cords, the straps, the bungees—it’s all too much. I’m going for a bike ride, not a two-month hike on the PCT. This Osprey pack ($110) doesn’t play. Every doodad has an actual purpose, whether it’s locking your helmet down on stops or smuggling wine into festivals with the massive 85-ounce hydration vessel. (Not that I’ve ever done that.) It’s a small pack, but it packs some punch. (Or wine.)
