Day Hiker (Survival Bag)

A Listmania! list by William Fink "Will" (Pasadena, MD, USA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Couple of bags, and basic supplies for adventuring into the wild. Good for long or short day hikes, but could be modified for longer trips by adding a sleeping bag, tent etc.

Also includes some knife picks. While not the absolute favorite (I love Chris Reeve Knifes, not offered by Amazon) they are decent and should server you well."
Osprey Stratos 36 Backpack
1.  Osprey Stratos 36 Backpack by Osprey
The list author says:

It's tough, light and very comfortable.  Features include ventilated back, rain cover, bottle holders, internal frame, hydration compartment, and loops for attaching tools.  This pack comes in three sizes, so you can get the right size to fit your torso."
