Best Uses for the Cotopaxi Batac 16L
The Cotopaxi Batac is a great backpack for short day hikes. The ultra-lightweight design is great for packing your hiking necessities and more!
The adjustable sternum strap is easy to use and adds extra comfort when out on the trail.
The internal sleeve divider is great for storing items separately in the main compartment. While you can also use it with a hydration reservoir, there are not any hydration ports to feed the tube to the outside of the pack, so keep that in mind if you are looking for a pack with hydration compatibility.
Travel & Everyday Adventures
The inside mesh zipper pocket in the main compartment is the perfect size for holding your keys, cell phone and a few smaller items. The front zippered compartment also has a small mesh pocket for other items that you might need to have quick access to.
This backpack was originally designed to pair with larger travel bags, so it is perfect to stow in your suitcase when you are traveling. It is lightweight and packs super easy and takes up very little room in a larger travel bag.
Appearance and Functionality
The Cotopaxi Batac is quality-made with durable nylon so it is lightweight yet made to last. Each pack has a one-of-a-kind Del Día colorway, which means no two packs are the same!
The design and function of this pack was very well thought out. The Cotopaxi Batac is a very versatile pack that will serve many purposes for years to come!
What Does it Hold?
The Cotopaxi Batac has plenty of storage space! On a typical day hike, you can easily carry a rain jacket, some sandals, a water bottle (and/or hydration reservoir), a hat, a lunch, and lots of snacks!
There is also still plenty of room for a change of clothes and more smaller items, so the storage is definitely ample!
The Bottom Line
What we Love
The Cotopaxi Batac is a quality made pack. We love the unique color combinations and that each backpack is one-of-a-kind! We also love the story behind the Del Dia products and how they work to reduce waste by using remnants and repurposing materials as they create these packs.
What we aren’t so crazy about
While not a deal breaker, we would love to have a port for a hydration reservoir. Since it doesn’t have the port, this would not be our number one pick for a hiking backpack.
However, it definitely has become our go-to for everyday adventures with its lightweight design and colorful and fun look!
Where to buy
If purchasing from Amazon, you will not have a choice as to what color you will receive as it is completely random. However, if you wish to hand select the color combination, be sure to purchase directly from Cotopaxi!
