REI Flash 22 Backpack Review + Gear Haul Out

I've spent some weeks hiking with the REI Flash 22 pack as an ultralight day pack option, and it's been great. The pack is minimal, and just has everything you need for a day hike. In this video I'll walk you through the Flash 22 and do a quick haul out of my day hike gear.

Hi, I'm Cris Hazzard, aka Hiking Guy, a professional outdoors guide, hiking expert, and author based in Southern California. I created this website to share all the great hikes I do with everyone else out there. This site is different because it gives detailed directions that even the beginning hiker can follow. I also share what hiking gear works and doesn't so you don't waste money. I don't do sponsored or promoted content; I share only the gear recommendations, hikes, and tips that I would with my family and friends. If you like the website and YouTube channel, please support these free guides (I couldn't do it without folks like you!).
