Greatly Improved

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own an older raptor 6 and this reboot addresses all of the old issues with the pack. First and foremost, hip pockets now have zippers so you can actually use them without fear of losing whatever you put in there. Second, the older pack had a fussy zipper and fastex buckle access to the bladder pocket while this has the newer single zipper which goes all the way down the shoulder strap. MUCH faster, MUCH more secure, and eliminates the older elastic bands (that lost their elasticity over time) which secured the hose to the strap. A+. New tool pocket has also been relocated to the proper place and there's a zipper in a zipper for the small stowage pocket to fully secure valuables. All in all the best hydro pack ever, and the 6 seems the perfect size for anything from epic all day trail rides to short stints. if you own a Raptor 6 this is worth the upgrade due to the vast number of well thought out changes.

Great pack but 2014 bladder lid is poor

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pack is a great size for a full day ride. Tube, bike tools, patches, pump, 3L of water, food, and a thin jacket all fit. Well organized inside. Waist belt zipper pockets are awesome!

One important complaint though: The 2014 bladder lid is terrible. It is very hard to get my fingers between the frame and the cap to screw and unscrew it. Also the lid keeper is very tight and makes it even harder to screw, I removed my lid keeper. One time I thought it was screwed tight only to find out that I had cross threaded it and it leaked all over the place.

Stock photo: try to get your fat fingers in there with enough force to close the lid. Harder than it should be.

Great Pack

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great small pack but with enough room to carry some tools, a tube, and maybe a light layer.
I have a Raptor 14 that is a few years old. I wanted a smaller pack for summer riding, as the 14 can hold a full change of clothes, winter gloves, etc. The Raptor 6 fits the bill perfectly. Some improvements over the past few years since I bought my Raptor 14 are the zipper pockets on the hip belt. I always wanted to be able to close the old style pockets but couldn't, but now they added a zipper. Perfect. Also, the new airscape back is much better then the old style as it has some voids that allow the air to actually flow through.
As far as the new reservoir design, I think Iike the old style better. It just seems easier to fill and load into the bag. This one is still good, but I like the old style better. The new 3/4 turn lid is harder to close also, and the flatter bladder is harder to get into the bag. Maybe its due to the smaller bag. This holds a 3L and I think the 6 used to come with a 2L.
I also think the tool wrap is useless in this size bag. On the larger bag, its incorporated into the bag. On the 6 its just an extra bonus, that to me is useless. If you use the wrap, it doesn't really fit the bag that good. I rather put my tool into the pocket inside of the bag so it lays flatter. Im only carrying a small multi tool, so the wrap is bigger than the actual tool itself.
All in all, these aren't negatives that would keep my from buying it again, they are really just personal preferences. Osprey is still better than Camalback and all the other brands out there.

Nice Size

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great bag for mountain biking. I like my bag to be nice and small, but some are just too small and are a huge pain if you ever need to throw in anything beyond your basic tools and maybe a bar shaped piece of food. The Raptor 6 is pretty small and simple overall, but does have enough extra room if you want to indulge yourself in some other luxuries such as a full sized sandwich, long sleeve shirt, etc.

Quality is great of course, I've never been let down by Osprey in that department. My oldest Osprey is an Atmos 50 from 2006 which is still going strong. And it has some nice little touches like the super clever helmet holding contraption, magnetic hose, removable tool bag, etc.

Oh and it's comfy too. It still gets hot and sweaty on your back while riding, but I have yet to find a bag that really solves that problem so I'll let that slide. 4/5 stars because there's nothing crazy or mind-blowing to elevate this to the elusive 5 star level, but I definitely love mine and would recommend it to anyone looking for a simple hydration pack to fit tools and a few other things.

Nice Bag
Nice Bag

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first Osprey Hydration Pack but it wont be my last. I was looking for a small bag for 50-100 mile MTB races. i wanted to just be able to carry my food, tool, water and maybe a rain jacket. So size wise this is a perfect bag.

My Favorite features in no particular order.
1. The small pockets on the waist strap hold a gel flask and some energy chews that I can access while riding. Since I can't reach my jersey pockets
2. The bite valve is perfect. No leaks and great flow. I also love the magnetic holder on the sternum strap. Nice detail.
3. The bladder is easy to get to and fill. The spine really helps when filling.
4. The Airscape back panel really does keep your back cool. You still sweat but nothing like I do with my Camelbak.
5. The Lidlock was not something I ever really considered but I do find it handy when I throw my bag in the truck. It is a nice way to not forget your helmet.

Made for biking but good for hiking too

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have just replace my camelback blowfish with this backpack because I heard good reviews on it. I have only taken it mountain biking twice, and several times hiking. This backup is great. I love its separate tool pouch, its pump pockets inside, and the mesh pockets for small electronics and keys.
The hard surface that helps it keep its shape and the bag close to one's body is outstanding. At times, after I have drank about half the water in the reservoir, I felt like I was not even carrying a backpak. Unlike my camelback that bounces around even when the straps are pulled all the way. It is smaller than the camelback blowfish, but I didn't need all that space anyway. This is a great design for mountain biking, but the using it for hiking did not pose any problems, so I recommend it for both uses.
I liked this pack so much (Raptor 6), that I got the Raven 6 for my wife. She has only used it hiking and reports with big grinning smile that she loves it. She was replacing a northface day pack. Once again, we like the fact that it stays close to your body and feels almost like a vest. The side hip pockets are a brilliant addition for quick access to snacks and even small electronics. HOWEVER, if it rains, the hip pockets are not a good place for anything that can get wet, as they are made of mesh that is exposed to the elements. I give it a 5 stars!

Osprey has rain covers available (from B.C.), but they may still not cover the pockets. Type in osprey raincovers (no spaces), and you'll see the selections. A 'XS' will fit 600-1200 cu in. size packs. Can be folded up and stored inside or outside of pack, just in case!

Great upgrade for my camelback blowfish.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great bag. I consider it an upgrade for my camelback blowfish which I have had for a few years. I like the size of the Raptor 6, I like the hydration bladder which stays flatter than any of the camelback's that I have used. Also, I love the tool (removable) pouch and the extra pockets around the waist band. I have only taken it on a couple of rides, but it seems solidly built so I imagine I will be using it for years.
I liked this so much, I bought the Viper 6 for my wife and she loves it as well. It is definitely a well made backpack. I use it for mountain biking, but my wife uses it for hiking, it works fine for either activity.

Responded on

If she decides she wants a larger pack in the future, suggest she look into the "Raven" series. The straps are designed a little differently to better fit a woman...and it does...I have tried both the Raptor and own the Raven, and there's a noticeable difference!

Front view of the little clip that 'holds' the helmet in place; elastic band adjust to hold any size helmet. Here it's shown with a size 'M' *Specialized S-Works Prevail helmet with no problems at all!

Also notice the perforated shoulder straps allowing additional air to pass through, beside helping in the comfort factor.

No Worries! Easy to attach/remove. Frees-up your hands on stops to enjoy the view (or whatever); and keeps helmet safe and sound, relatively speaking.
