6. REI Flashback Daypack. If a hiker is on your holiday shopping list, consider the REI Flashback Daypack ($44.50), which is ideal for day hikes with a fully padded back panel. Ultra-light, it has shoulder-strap snap loops to attach belongings, an internal fabric sleeve and an interior zippered pocket for additional storage. We love how it looks a little old-school vintage, while still being so performance-based!
Best for: The outdoorsy type who likes to get out into Mother Nature for the day!
