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.
