πŸ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Truly compact. Super easy to pack so it's truly convenient to bring as your secondary bag.
  • Extremely lightweight but reliable.
  • Offers decent organization considering the simpleness of this pack.
  • Simple to use and easy to integrate into your daily activities.

πŸ€” Things to Consider

  • The straps aren't padded and aren't the most comfortable straps to use on the bag. The materials can end up chaffing your shoulders.
  • Does not offer any special features. It is just your simple usual daypack.

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "I love this backpack! I got it a few years ago, and have used it for several different purposes since then. It's such a small bag, but it carries so so much stuff, enough that I've begun to call it my carpet bag like the one in Mary Poppins. I've taken this backpack on vacation, and if you're at all worried about someone unzipping the bag you can put it on with the zippers against your back and it feels about the same (I tossed it on backward on accident). I've loaded it up with college work, it worked great, and I've tossed dog gear in the bag and been very pleasantly surprised by how the fur doesn't stick to the bag. Overall I love this backpack, and I don't usually like backpacks at all!"
  • "I cannot recommend this bag enough and I hope that TB will not discontinue it. To me, this is the best packable light backpack to bring on trips (and fit in your luggage if you travel minimalistic) or use as EDC."
  • "This bag in Halcyon is a must for traveling. I use it as a day bag when I travel. I love it so much I often use it at home too. It’s a half backpack, a half security blanket. The shingle pockets are especially useful. I really like the unpadded straps too."

TOM BIHN Daylight Backpack

"The bag itself looks simple and understated, great for traveling where you don't want to attract too much attention for the risk of being targets of a crime. It doesn't look awfully fashionable but not unfashionable either."

Drive By :: Tom Bihn Daylight Backpack

"The best uses I’ve found for this bag are short-term activities where packing a couple of jackets and some water is the extent of my carry needs...It’s just a simple and honest bag with tried and true elements. And if that style speaks to you, this is definitely a bag I’d recommend."

Tom Bihn Daylight Backpack

"If you are someone who rarely uses a backpack, but wants to have one around for those odd occasions you want to use one. Or if you are someone like me who likes to travel with just one travel bag, but wants a backpack when you get to your destination — the Daylight Backpack is a great option. I’ve not seen anything else quite like it out there."
