What? No mens?? I've got wide shoulders. My shoulders are never going to fit into something designed to accommodate women also! :D

I do love it however. Would look pretty amazing with an Acadia patch slapped on the back to commemorate it's 100th anniversary this year also. I love my day pack now dearly, but just may have to have both.

Ooooh. More goodies. The other pack looks very similar to what I have now. And it's comes in men's and women's. Not sure why you're worried about it Kathy, the nearest National Park is in Maine! :P

It would have helped if I linked this.

https://www.rei.com/s/national-parks-centennial-gear?ir=collection%3Anational-parks-centennial-gear&page=1

Would have helped more if I narrowed it down farther to the men's version of the pack in question.

At a minimum this patch will be on my pack as soon as I find one.

I like this one too. I'm wondering, how many packs does everyone own? Only counting real packs, something you'd take on a day-long hike. Not a book bag with shoulder straps.

 Re: Might have to get a new pack :)
I have three packs. A small one that holds a 2l water bladder and other small essentials. I've used this for when I have multiple small hikes where I can refill at my car between them. My daily driver 45l kelty that I bring pretty much everywhere. I have a 65l that I haven't used yet that can carry everything and the kitchen sink for overnights. I have 2 old school EMS and kelty packs with an outboard aluminum frame. I have no idea what to use these for if at all.

I have four packs. A 75L backpacking one, a 45L day pack/warm weather overnight pack, a smaller day pack for short, quick hikes and the Kelty kid carrying backpack. I have one more that is specifically designed for hiking with camera gear but I think I have only used it twice and I'm not even sure where it is at the moment.

I have all told 5...a winter osprey, a 28L Deuter, a smaller super lightweight Gregory summit pack, my old external frame I just cannot get rid of yet and, of course, this one:

Couldn't resist. Fits really well, works with my gear, had time to spare and money from Christmas that I'd earmarked for a winter bag but then saw Joe's post......

I have 4 packs: 65L Osprey Atmos, 36L Osprey Stratos, 40ish L Gossamer Gear Gorilla, and a regular old North Face daypack. I mostly use the Stratos and Gorilla these days.

This might just become the official Hike-NH pack. 8)

It would go nicely with a shirt from here.

I'm surprised whoever put this together didn't make a patch. Or cafepress doesn't do that.
