Closeouts. Performance and convenience converge in the DaKine Amp hydration pack. Separate pockets hold your hydration system and tools, and the ventilated back panel helps you avoid the dreaded sweat-soaked jersey.

I looked a long time to find a bag with all of these features without being too big and cumbersome. For my long day hikes, this bag has it all: hydration bladder, soft compartment for sunglasses or phone, raincover, ventilated back, padded straps, helmet pouch (good for a windbreaker), and several pockets. The waist belt is even removable--perfect when I want to minimize the bag for travel. It is all black, which makes it more versatile--no colorful trim to make it conspicuous or loud. If I want to be more visible, I'll attach a reflector. This bag is durable and fits well on my 5'3" frame. Bags with these features cost $100+, so this was a great value at $55. Re the interior space, it accommodated a pair of rain pants, a bulky wind jacket, a pair of Teva water sandals, an extra shirt and a pair of socks, plus small binoculars and wallet in the pockets. It won't fit much beyond that except lunch and snacks. This fits my needs perfectly, but if you want to carry more, you may want to go with a larger bag.
