When you don’t want to carry a backpack, try L.L. Bean’s Day Trekker Waist Pack that comes with an extra strap so you can carry over your shoulder. It’s lightweight and roomy enough to stash a rain jacket and snacks in the main compartment; the stretch sling on the bottom holds more gear or a 32-ounce water bottle and there is another front stash pocket that makes it easy to reach your phone.  ($59.95)

And now that I’ve moved to downtown Denver and am walking everywhere, I’ve become a fan of L.L. Bean’s Stowaway Hip Pack—ultra lightweight (just four ounces!) with two zipper compartments and just big enough for a phone, keys and small wallet. It also stows inside a pocket. A bargain at $19.95.
