Matador Freerain24 2.0 Packable Daypack Review

The Freerain24 2.0 from Matador is an unbelievably light pack that offers incredible packability and water resistance for your daily travel needs.

  • Solid, simple aesthetic… sleek and stylish.
  • Totally water resistant… roll top seal and water resistant coating make this thing air proof, let alone water proof.
  • Great water bottle holders… one on each side, both with stretchy mesh and nice strap cinches to keep things in place.
  • Expandable capacity… need to carry a little today? Maybe more tomorrow? The roll top can accommodate both large and light daily loads.
  • Note: Matador also makes a smaller 16L pack with the same features.
