I enjoyed your entry on the whistle, but I’ll tell you what REALLY caught my eye was the picture of the whistle on the Daypack. I love the looks of that Daypack! I can see that it’s from REI, but I can’t find anything like it on the REI site. Do you know if they still carry one like it?

Thanks for the question, Shannon! I’m glad you like my daypack! That is the old version of the REI Women’s Traverse Daypack, which REI re-designed this year. Mine is a couple of years old.
The new version has a bit of a different style, but it is a very good pack (even though I prefer the maroon and gray color combo on mine!)
A pack that has more similar styling to the old version of the REI Traverse Daypack is the REI Lookout Pack. It is a 40L pack and has convenient pockets and comfortable shoulder straps. A friend of mine has one and really likes it.
