High Sierra Impact Backpack

The Impact daypack from High Sierra is perfect for just walking around.

The Impact daypack from High Sierra is perfect for just walking around.

My husband and I recently went to the Peace River Arts Festival. It's held in Laishley Park downtown, where dogs are welcome, so we brought both of our dogs. I realized I really needed a small daypack-style backpack that I can use instead of a purse to haul along all the things that women always need to haul.

I wanted something smallish and lightweight; I wasn't looking for something to go hiking with in the mountains, just something to substitute for my purse when a purse isn't convenient. I have a fanny pack, but it's not big enough to hold all my usual stuff plus doggy supplies such as a portable water bowl, bottled water, clean-up bags, etc.

I looked at both the Jansport Right Pack and the High Sierra Impact. Both are reasonably priced, and it was a toss-up which one would work better for me. I ended up choosing the High Sierra Impact daypack for several reasons:

  • It has a front zipper section with organizer pockets for pens and other small items
  • It has a side mesh pocket for water bottles
  • It has a pocket on one of the shoulder straps for a cell phone
  • It has padded shoulder straps and a padded back panel, so that things inside won't poke me uncomfortably in the back
  • The shoulder straps are contoured, not straight-cut, so it feels more comfortable on my shoulders

I probably would have been happy with the Jansport Right Pack, but I do like the little extras that the High Sierra Impact has, and the Impact was actually less expensive. For a small, lightweight, inexpensive daypack, the Impact will serve me well.

You can get the High Sierra Impact backpack/daypack from eBay and Amazon.

Update: I've taken to using this instead of my purse almost all the time. A backpack is much easier on my shoulders and neck; no more sore neck on one side from the weight of a purse, even when it gets pretty full and heavy. It easily holds a lot more than a purse. When we go to fairs & festivals where I might make several purchases, I just stuff them into the pack.

After nearly 2 years, the backpack is holding up extremely well under frequent use. I've purchased a heavier-duty pack for traveling, but this daypack is my standard everyday pack, and my purse is relegated to the back of my closet.
