Why we made this
Whether you're heading into the hills for an adventure or embarking on the daily commute to work, the Rapaki 26 can handle the rigours of the journey.
  • Product Description
    A day pack to get you from the city to the hills comfortably and safely, the Rapaki 26 L pack lets you tuck away your laptop, clip on your cycle light, and race into weekend without a hitch. Inspired by our local Rapaki Track, this pack comes with internal organisation compartments, hip belt pockets and two drink bottle pockets for on the go hydration — or if you prefer, thrown in your hydration bladder for easy access to water while cutting a lap on the local single track. Made to last, the T-Bone™ harness has reinforced, contoured shoulder straps and strategically-placed foam padding for ergonomic comfort — plus the sliding sternum strap allows you to lower or raise the strap for a personalised fit.

    Suitable soap types are: pure soap, vegetable soap and Nikwax Tech Wash®
    Rinse the pack well and dry it in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight
    Do not put your pack in the washing machine as this will void your warranty
    Always try to keep the zip teeth as clean as possible
    Wash zip teeth with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics

Not as durable as I'd hoped for
I've had this pack for less than 3.5 years and the side pocket that is unstitched has frayed and the fabric is now coming away from the zip and it hasn't even had a hard life.

Best backpack ever!!!
I've had my Macpac Rapaki since about 2014. I've used it every day, it's literally become an extension of me. It's an awesome day pack & carry on. What's surprised me the most about the Rapaki is it's ability to handle heavy weights without it feeling heavy thanks to the amazing harness system. I'd highly recommend the Rapaki, it's given me years of reliability & comfort. I've recently had to retire my Rapaki after all these years. But I'll be getting a new one soon.

For tall people and small loads
Bought two years ago for a foray into one bag travel. Did a 2 week trip with it. I had three issues with it when travelling, one is that the backlength is a bit long for me, second is that it's an odd shape to pack and when packed full it is difficult to access items without pulling everything out, third I have the black version and the grey highlights are lighter in real life than the photos which means it doesn't blend well in an urban context. Since then I've used it occasionally for day walks and found the harness to be very stable when the hipbelt is used. Longevity wise most of the pack has held up well. Only two issues, the side pockets are very easy to put holes in and the waterproof backing of the main fabric is peeling away at the top of the main compartment which means it's no longer showerproof.

Best small pack ever.
Cycling to work the pack always sits comfortably and the design means my back isn't absolutely drenched at the end of the ride. Breaths well and is comfortable to wear.

great in every way
I bought this daypack after elaborate research to replace my 20y old macpac cyclone. I was looking for a 25l daypack with enough protection for a laptop, an external storage option for a jacket and easy accessible side pockets without mesh. If possible It would also have to look nice. No black pack f.i.
The rapaki 28 looked too big for daily commute and had an external storage option but he 26 option was easier available in Europe, so I bought this one.
I'm very satisfied with this daypack, it has the ideal size, two great external pockets, fantastic internal organisation and although not adverteerde, it even had bungee cords for a jacket. It is very comfortable and very stable when chest or hip belt is used.

Can i use this on a plane as carry on luggage?
Kiri M on Nov 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: yes generally speaking you can. I regularly use it as my personal item that goes under the seat in addition to another bag. this depends on the airline though, some have rules that might exclude it.
Is the hip belt really removable on the Rapaki 26L? I can't see how as it seems to be sewn in.
CamTheLegend on Mar 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Cameron, this is not removable, however this can be folded back up into itself. We have asked our Website development team to remove the word removable from the website as this is not entirely true. If you are near a local Macpac store we would recommend popping into store and having one of our friendly staff demonstrate how to fold the waist belt back into itself. Cheers :)
Hi, the strap at the bottom of the pack, (bottom front facing out when on) what is this for and how do you use it please?
Barbara W on Jan 3, 2020
On the straps you Cary the pack with there are two straps to secure it. A big on on the bottom to go around your waist and a narrow one on the top to go around your chest. Adjust to sit comfortably.
If you carry the pack on walking trips you don’t really need them. I use it on my motor bike to secure it when riding.
Have fun
The pack also has small velcro strips on the inside and outside of the waist belt, outside connects to the vertical should strap for some reason but any idea what the internal one is for?
Craig W on Jul 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Craig, the internal one is for when you retract the hip belt inside, these are used to make sure they don’t slide back out again. We hope this helps, Thanks.
