hiking without backpack?

Can I get away with hiking without backpack? I'm going on a trip soon, and there might be hiking involved. But, I also want to pack superlight, and don't really want to bring my hiking pack (it's a 30L pack, so it does take up some space). I've tried stowaway backpacks before but they are rarely comfortable. If I'm just bringing water, a clif bar, and my ID, do I really need a backpack? can I get away with a canvas tote?

also, any suggestion on how to make those drawstring backpacks comfortable? or a cheaper alternative for Chico's stowaway backpack?
