    Most comfortable daytrip touring pack?

    Looking for suggestions on a daily use touring pack that focuses on comfort above all else. Something in a 30-35 liter size and relatively lightweight.
    What ya got?

    Iíve only tried a few but the Mammut Spindrift 32 is by far my favorite, by far most comfortable pack Iíve used, and has a rigid frame sheet that helps carry better than other packs under 3lbs. Itís only $127 at backcountry and 12% cash back thru activejunky

    I'll throw another vote toward Mammut packs. My go-to is an older 30L with the removable airbag system. It's extremely comfortable for me, albeit not likely in the "lightweight" category given the thicker material it's constructed of.

    Was in the shop last week trying both the Mammut Nirvana 35 and Ortovox Haute Route 32 with weights in the bags, amazing how much better the Haute Route carried on my long torso body at 6'2".

    My Mammut and higher end Dakine packs (Poacher series) have fit and carried very well, but Osprey, Gregory, and Ortovox all makes packs that I'd take a hard look at if I were in the market.

    Really like the Osprey Kode 32. Keeps most of the pack off my back allowing sweat to evaporate.

    Happy with the Deuter Freerider, way more comfortable than the BD and BCA packs I've had. I have the older 26L model but the 30L looks similar.

    Whatever fits. We're not all shaped the same and neither are packs.
