Deuter’s Pulse 3 hip-belt pack is an excellent choice for those quick hikes with the dogs. It’s lightweight, has enough room for snacks, and contains a 1.5L water bladder. The ventilated-yet-snug fit is perfect when working up a sweat, plus it fits nicely in my kayak. Added bonus: I use it to keep travel necessities right by my side when flying.
