Why we made this
Whether you're heading into the hills for an adventure or embarking on the daily commute to work, the Rapaki 26L Backpack is ready for the journey.
  • Product Description
    A backpack to get you from the city to the hills comfortably and safely, the Rapaki 26L Backpack lets you tuck away your laptop, clip on your cycle light and race into weekend without a hitch. Inspired by our local Rapaki Track in Christchurch, New Zealand, this pack comes with internal organisation compartments, hip belt pockets and two drink bottle pockets for on the go hydration — or if you prefer, throw in your hydration bladder for easy access to water while cutting a lap on the local single track. Made to last, the harness has reinforced, contoured shoulder straps and strategically-placed foam padding with a mesh overlay for ergonomic comfort and increased breathability — plus the sliding rail sternum strap allows you to lower or raise the strap for a personalised fit.
  • Design features
    420D Oxford nylon fabric with PU coating
    Padded harness with mesh overlay for breathability and comfort
    Internal pockets and laptop sleeve (holds 17" laptop)
    Tuck-away hip belt
    Hydration compatible
    Cycle light loop and reflective strips
    Two water bottle pockets
    Capacity: 26 litres

  • Care
    You are best to clean your pack with a natural, non-detergent soap and a soft-bristled brush
    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 clean — wash with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics
    Do not tumble dry, iron or dryclean

Very Comfy, and fits more than you'd think.
This thing is super comfy. the semi rigid curve of the back fits my back like a bag shaped glove. This has its caveats however, as the inside of the bag is a bit of an odd shape, making it difficult to pack neatly without cubes etc. However you can squeeze quite a lot in, I was surprised how much I fit.

Having the waist strap stowable is a nice idea, but unfortunately its VERY difficult to tuck it away. Unless there's some secret instruction that Macpac haven't seen fit to share with it, you can expect to spend several minutes on this take and still be unsatisfied by the results.

Similarly, the external bottle holders are fiddly to get even a medium sized bottle in. I don't know, I just felt I needed a third hand to open it up properly.

Overall, super comfy, great capacity, decent compartments, weird shape, average looks.

Pretty good.

Great day pack
For something so small, it holds a lot of stuff and is very comfortable to wear. Very pleased with my pack

Haven't used yet, but looks a good size day pack. Feels confortable. I like the idea of being able to tuck away hip straps if not needed

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.

How do you remove the hip belt?
Brad C on Aug 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It pulls inside the backpack ! It becomes internal ! If that makes sense
Does this pack come with a rain cover?
Jess P on Oct 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jessica,

No it does not have a rain cover. But this one should match the size of the pack.

Kind regards,
The Macpac Team
Hi, I’m wondering how the hip belt folds away. Are there instructions? Many thanks!
