Raptors are good at the whole fast-and-light thing.
Just right for a medium-sized day hike or mountain bike ride, the Osprey Raptor 10 Hydration Pack offers room for extra layers, lunch and a camera. A three-liter reservoir stows all the water you could need for day the trail, and a lightweight, comfort-oriented design helps keep your back and shoulders happy for mile after mile.
- Easy-fill HydraForm reservoir slips in and out easily, and its bite valve easily rotates open or shut
- Reservoir straw sticks magnetically to the pack’s sternum strap, so it won’t flop around as you walk
- AirScape suspension system incorporates a mesh molded back panel for a balance of padding and ventilation
- LidLock helmet clip gives you a spot to stow your bike helmet when it's not in use
- Stow an extra layer in the stretch outer pocket
- Organize bike tools and a spare tube in the internal pocket’s slots
- Inner key clip eliminates lost-car-key disasters (we’ve been there)

Great pack for the money!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I originally bought this for mountain biking, as something to hold my gear and a snack in. It works great for that, but I use it a lot as a travel pack. I have used it at amusement parks, long hikes, short fishing trips (5 hours or so), and have even used it as a carry on for flying. I am impressed with how high-quality the materials are and I recommend this pack to anyone who loves being outdoors. Don't worry if you never plan to use the hydration bladder, because I never have and I still love this pack. It has many internal pockets which provides easy organization and the straps are all easily adjustable. But beware... once you go Osprey... you never go back :)
The size is fitful

I bought this bag for my wife, it's Very beautiful and practical, appropriate size fits
her height very well
Great enabler for alcoholics :)

Got this for my little sis, here is her review:
The backpack is great, I enjoy using it for long walks on the beach, although instead of putting water in there I prefer a nice Merlot.
Great Mtb pack with plenty of features
Tons of organization make finding stuff on the trail simple. The shoulder straps and back are the same as my favorite Talon pack I use for backpacking, the straps are ventilated and have a little stretch to them so it doesn't restrict movement while leaning into berms or getting off the back bombing downhill. The hydration bag is ok, still prefer Platypus. The pack is heavy for Osprey, I'd never use it for long hikes, but is fine for biking. My only gripe, I wish the magnet was moveable so I could adjust better to put the tube on the left side, I hate having the tube hang across my whole body like how it comes out of the box, too much in the way for mtb. Still gets 4 stars despite the weight and magnet because the magnet is a great idea and works fairly well on either side, and the weight is comparable to most hydration packs out there, just not as light as Osprey can be (44L Talon weighs about the same and has a frame.)
Great for White Oak Canyon Trail
Perfect for my day hike. Packed a light lunch, first aid kit, Chapstick, and sanitizer. Dug all the pockets and plenty of water capacity. Fit nice too.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Great riding pack! It fits so snug that I hardly notice it while running and biking. Its not the biggest bag in the world, but it fits everything i need for rides and runs and still has plenty of room to fill up the water bladder. Love this bag.
Osprey Raptor Bike Hydration

I'm kicking myself for not getting this pack sooner. I usually hate wearing hydration packs when mountain biking since I do not like the added weight on my back and they seem to slide around. This Osprey pack does not bother me one bit. The shoulder straps on this pack are comfortable and the lower harness takes the weight off your shoulders while keeping the pack from moving to your chest on technical descents. The best part about the pack is the size for me - It is perfect. I can stow everything I need for a ride - extra tube, multitool, pump, food, gels, camera, extra jersey - easily in the pockets without cramming it all in. The helmet mount is slick. I don't use it much, but when I do it sure is nice to have and easy to use. The bladder on this pack had a stiff flat side to prevent the dreaded water sausage in your pack - probably one of the best features. The bladder also is easy to remove and fill with water and ice. Cleaning the bladder is a bit more difficult than my Hyrdrapak that I could turn inside out, but the features of this pack far outseed that only flaw. The hose is long and I thought about cutting it at first, but really works well with the magnet on the end. Get this pack, you will not regret it!
Is the weight listed here accurate? 2lb...
Is the weight listed here accurate? 2lb 11oz looks to be about 1220 grams or so, but the Raptor 14 is listed at 850 g. I mean, I'm all for a larger bag that is lighter don't get me wrong.
From Osprey's website: 1lb 11oz for the M/L. 710g. Looks like they typed a "2" instead of a "1" on accident...
Mine weighs 2.31 lbs or about 36 ounces, tags and all. It is pleasing to purchase an Osprey pack, the materials used and manufacturing quality makes me smile as I check it out. I own 4 Osprey packs of varying sizes.

Water- check. Carbs- check. Rain gear- check. Let's Go! Here atop Hahn's Peak with Steamboat Lake in the background.
My only complaint- it is Not comfortable when I do long rides on my mtn bike when I need more than two water bottles. I've adjusted and readjusted and it still presses on my spine. Good upright though.
I bike cross country in the NE USA. I have been using this pack for three years. Previously, I owned a Camelback Stealth, which is much smaller, for two years. I greatly prefer the Osprey. Mostly, this is because the Osprey has more storage but is equally compact. Believe it or not, I squeeze a micropump, spare tube, compact rain jacket, bike tools, small first aid kit, wallet, cell phone, keys, 3L of H2O, and 1500 calories into mine. This constitutes everything I need for up to 8 hours of riding. The Osprey also looks cooler than the Stealth, allows better back ventilation, gives more H20 with less effort, and has a more durable bladder. Additionally, this pack is very well constructed. Mine, though dirty, is still as good as new after three years of abuse. In fact, the original bladder has only now begun to lose a little bit of water, although I think this is only through the bite valve. If I have any complaint, it is the bite valve. While it is easy to use (I love the magnet), it is also easy to bite through if you drink while riding. For this reason, I am on my second valve, and am currently in need of a third. Overall, this is an AWESOME pack. Unless you want to carry your life on your back, it will not disappoint you. Just a tip... if you tuck the hose under your arm (through your arm pit), then bring it across your body to the magnet, it will be in better position for a hands-free drink.
Very well done
I've used a lot of different hydration packs for mountain biking - Camelback, DaKine, Deuter, Wingnut. The Raptor's been my favorite of the bunch. The storage is well thought out, the dividers are useful, and there's plenty of room in the 10 for a long ride. It easily fits 2 extra tubes (I'm tubeless, but I also ride with enough "Anyone got a spare tube, I pinched again!" guys) a multitool, a Leatherman, shock pump and tire pump, a couple of Clif bars and gels, and a small rain jacket just in case.
The Raptor is the best fitting pack I've ever used once gravity takes over. I liked the Wingnut fit and concept, but I never did get totally used to it on the downhills.
Long-term, I've got some reservations about the bladder, specifically the mouthpiece. My Dakine pack used a Nalgene bladder, and while the Raptor doesn't have the leak prone disconnect on the bladder side, it's still got the same mouthpiece that seemed to leak like a sieve after three months or so. I'll update in the future if the same thing happens here.
The Raptor is also pretty good at not heating up your back too much, but not as good as the Deuter with the rigid hammock they use. I'm more than happy to make that tradeoff for the organized space and the downhill fit, which were both places the Deuter was just not good.
And that little magnet? Genius. I HATE having the hose flopping around and tapping my knee on a climb.
This is by far my favorite pack I've ever owned.
This is my 3rd Osprey pack and I love all of them. Great quality and functionality. It has enough room for a few bike tools and some food for the ride.
The only thing I'd change is that I wish it had a pouch on the shoulder strap like the Verve does to keep energy gels in. It has some pockets on the waist belt, but they don't have any way to close them, so I'm a little worried they'd fall out if I put them in there. Other than that I love it!
I have the generously sized Kode-22 for...
I have the generously sized Kode-22 for off-piste but I need something a little more compact...the Raptor 10 with 3 litres seems even a bit much, but the 6 with only 360 cubic inches, is that a bit small? 2 litres of water is ample...I'm having a hard time visualizing 360 cubic inches.
I would really only have the need to pack an extra jacket, cap, snack...no tools or equipment (that's what the K-22 is for!). I have alternatives for overnights...so this is strictly multi-season day use.
I have a pack from camelbak that is 400cubic inches and I use it for the same purpose, so I'd say this one should work just fine for that.
There is little storage in the Raptor 6L--just a small pocket where you'd fit your cap/snack. Extra jacket could stuff in the shove-it pocket on the front...
If I were you, I'd go with the 10L. I stash an extra jacket, hat, snack, and gloves and that is pushing it... Plus, as far as water amount, you never have to fill your 3L reservoir up all the way but the days you want a little more than 2L of water will be a rough day on the trail.
Took my raptor 10 around Africa and back home, getting use every day, and it worked so well for everything I put it through. Gotta love the solid feel of all the components, the durability and the design are top notch. Perfect for fitting everything you need for a solid day trip, also works perfect for a day on the dirt bike, and who could complain about Osprey's warranty?
Perfect for Mountain Bike Day Trips
I own a lot of Osprey packs and love every one. This piece is no exception. Fits perfectly on the back, holds everything you need and then some. Plenty of room for you gels, gear, etc. And the Osprey hydration system works great. I love this thing.
I'm going to grip this little pack sometime...
I'm going to grip this little pack sometime soon after browsing and reading pretty much everything. Primarily for Mtn bike riding. Thought you folks might shed some light on a query. I have a Dana Designs daypack from WAY back in the day, back when they made them down the road in Bozeman! I know, not China? Amazing times back then. Anyways, it's the sickest little daypack I've ever owned(you kids have probably never even heard of the name) and I was going to add a bladder to it and make my own little rig to hold it inside. Thoughts on MSR or Osprey bladder? I know from other gear that MSR is usually pretty worthy, but this has got nothing really to do with anything I've ever owned. I guess it's a taste/leak scene for the most part, the Osprey model almost looks like it's manufactured stronger, but who the hell can really tell from images. Anyways, if yer bored and have some knowledge, throw it my way. Thanks!
From using both a MSR and an Osprey, I'd say go with Osprey hydration system for this purpose. If you are looking for a water container that is absolutely bomb-proof and works well with just about every water filter in the world (more of a backpacking purpose) the MSR is great (ultra pricey but again lasts forever!). The Osprey reservoir is very rugged and has a framesheet in it to prevent the reservoir from turning into a water sausage--it stays flat against your back. So for a mostly mountain bike purpose or hiking purpose, it is very stable and reduces the amount your pack will "roll around" on your back.
Hope this helps!
Thanks, Kate! I didn't really think about the filter scene, which helps because I have an MSR Miniworks filter! So Maybe I'll roll with the MSR, because I will have this little Osprey pack as well. I'll have to see about also rigging my large backpack to hold the bladder as well. Hmm. Seems I have some projects to get after, nothing wrong with that. Stay safe, darlin'!
Hi, i am looking for a hydration pack for...
Hi, i am looking for a hydration pack for short fast day hikes and trail running, this pack looks perfect for what i'm looking for but i am concerned about the size and if would fit my frame? I am 6'3"
i'm no expert on packs, this is the first and only pack i've ever had, but i have no complaints with it. it was perfect for a 10 hour hike. i had enough room for a sandwich and some cliff bars, a first aid kit and a light jacket. plenty of water for 10 hours. very comfortable and light weight. it is good looking as well. some dude even yelled back that he liked my pack as he ran past me down the trail.
