KEEN developed its Newport daypack to be a perfect fit for Fresh Air Junkies who can’t wait to get out of the office and into the outdoors.

If you’re a Fresh Air Junkie who can’t wait to get from the office and into the outdoors, then the Keen Newport dapack may be a great fit. The Newport is a lightweight and ergonommic pack for your laptop, water bladder and a change of clothes, allowing you go from office to trailhead as quickly as possible. It’s size, (20 x 12 x 8-inches) is large enough to fit plenty of gear, yet it’s slim and conforms to your body, making it great for mountain bikers and fast paced hikers.


A full size bike helmet easily fits in the Newport's outer pouch.

KEEN’s philosphy in making shoes that are lightweight and breathable, is definitely evident in the design of the Newport pack. The back panel features a breathable mesh and preforated foam panel that allows air to cool your back and keep sweat to a minimum. This makes it great for hot day hikes or long mountain bike rides. It also has additional padding on the back and shoulder pads, to make carrying heavy loads more comfortable.

The front expandable pouch is a great design that easily secures a bike helmet or any other gear that you want to access quickly. They’ve also added two water bottle pockets on each side of the pack that uses an elastic band to help keep them in place. . .
