Snota – 5 out of 6 stars

As reviewers for Jakt & Fiske Magazine put it, the 36L Helsport Snota day pack is great for both organizing and finding your gear.

Snazzy Snota

The facts: A small backpack, suited for shorter hikes. 36L capacity, 1kg. Features include a zippered side pocket, open side pocket, three large internal compartments, drinking bladder compatible, and soft back plate. Equipped with compression straps on the sides and a removable hip belt. Comes in black, violet, red, orange, green and blue, and is also available in a 29L version.

Functionality: Whether skiing all day or just getting in a quick hike before breakfast, this small and versatile pack is a great choice for those shorter trips. The pack sits comfortably on your back and, despite its small size, has plenty of space for everything you need. The carrying harness is excellent with its soft and flexible back plate, and the removable hip belt is a nice addition, especially for such a small pack. The large front zipper opening is a really handy feature, with multiple options for opening – you can open from the top like a regular pack, or from the bottom to access that vital extra pair of gloves, or you can open the whole front for easy access to everything. The light-coloured liner is a nice touch. Easy to organize and comfortable to use, all in all a great day pack!
