Familiarity: I've used it several times

Needed a smaller pack with hydration for a day long adventure up and over Mt. Washington. I'm 5'10" and I bought the M/L. Fits great. The light weight frame directs the load to your hips and the mesh panel keeps the air flowing between your back and the pack. There are plenty of zippered compartments to organize all the items you like to bring along with you. The 3L bladder with the semi rigid panel slips in and out of the pack easily. The bite valve is ok, the flow could be better. The magnet on the valve is a great feature. It keeps the hose from flopping around. All in all I highly recommend the Manta 28. The 28 maybe too big for MTBing but perhaps the 20 is ok. I actually went with the Raptor14 for MTBing.
