Day Hiker (Survival Bag)

William Fink "Will"
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."

"I really like this pack too.  While not quite as rugged as the first one in the list, I've grown to like it more. 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."
