What the Customers Are Saying

As of this writing there were 2,448 customer comments and 106 answered questions on Amazon.  I've read through the comments and answered questions to find common responses on the Hikpro Ultra Lightweight Backpack.  I've looked for the pros and cons and condensed the results here.  I hope that this makes your backpack shopping shopping experience easier and faster.

Item Specifics

The Hikpro Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack is made with high quality water and tear resistant nylon material.  It is durable and abrasion resistant made with SBS Metal Zippers.  It is reinforced in more than 14 places with what is called the Bartack Process.  This bag is made to last for many miles and years.

This backpack weighs a mere 6.5 ounces and is made to carry 20 liters of capacity.  The diameter of this backpack measures 18 x 12 x 5.5 inches.  It is perfect for day trips, airline travel, school, camping and shopping.

Great for Airline Travel

Many of the customers who left reviews for the Hikpro Ultra Lightweight Package Backpack used it for travel.  One of many happy customers reports, "I purchased 2 of these back packs for a 21 day trip to Europe for my husband and myself. They are light weight. I wore mine daily packed with a camera, sweaters, bottles of water, 2 extra battery packs, hats for my sons and occasionally a light weight towel. While my husband didn't wear his backpack, we ended up packing it with clothing inside our suit case so we could easily pull it out if our carry on baggage was overweight. We flew on 3 different smaller airlines in Europe who are very strict on their weight limits for baggage. It was so convenient to just pull it out and go at the check in counter."

Foldable

The Hikpro Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack folds into a small pocket about the size of a sandwich.  It is made to throw in a suitcase, purse or vehicle.  It's great for airline travel.  Just throw it in your luggage and avoid extra weight baggage charges.  If your luggage weighs too much, simply take some things out and pack it in the Hikpro Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack as a carry on.

Comfortable

This backpack is made with wide, breathable mesh shoulder straps.  The straps are easy to adjust the length.  The locks also adjust firmly.  Be aware though because there is not much to it, there is also not a structure to it that will protect your back from uncomfortable, sharp or hard objects. So make sure to pack smart and not have anything hard next to the section that will touch your back.

A customer talks about the comfort of this backpack here, "I needed a small backpack for a day hike. I used to hike a lot and know that the ideal ones have back support, but they end up being quite heavy, even without stuff in them.  I was skeptical buying this product at first, due to the lack of rigidness in the material.  However, I am super happy with my purchase!  It was so comfortable, you just need to pack your stuff in neatly to avoid things poking into your back.  It's very lightweight and I was super comfortable for the 4 hour hike.  It amazes me how it folds back into it's tiny pouch and takes up no room, being stored in a closet or suit case."

Colors

The Hikpro Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack comes in 7 different colors.  You can choose from black, bright orange, dark purple, dark green/Teal, light blue, navy and red.

Compartments

The Hikpro Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack has 3 zippered compartments to help keep you organized.  The main compartment is large enough to carry larger supplies.  The outer small pocket is great for quick access for items such as books and a camera.  The inner zippered pocket doubles as a storage pouch.  It's a perfect place for storing valuables such as cash and credit cards.  Two large mesh  pockets are great for water bottles and an umbrella.

Common Questions

Here are some top questions that I found for people considering buying a Hikpro Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack.

  • chevron-circle-right
    Will the typical 32 oz water bottle fit in the side mesh pouches ?  As answered by a customer:  "22 oz is the size that fits best."
  • chevron-circle-right
    I want to use it as purse while spending the entire day at a museum. Will I feel all the different shapes of stuff against my back all day?  They could though the company receives lots of photos of dogs in the hammocks.
  • chevron-circle-right
    How many compartments are there. It looks like two?  As answered by a customer: There's technically three: there's one large pouch that's essentially the size of the bag; there's that outer zipper that can hold some pens, a deck of cards, travel docs, etc.; and then an inner pocket that actually forms from the bag's "shell" that is good for securing small items, like phone chargers, change, your passport/wallet, keys, etc. I hope that's clear! And then there are the two water bottle pockets on the sides."
