I hopped on Backcountry.com in search of a pack to use while mountain biking. I looked no further than the Mid Mountain pack! As soon as I saw it, I knew that was exactly what I wanted. This pack has the use for multiple outdoor activities. I also use it while going for short day hikes. It has just enough storage and hydration pockets needed to become the perfect little hike pack as well! I am sure I will end up using this pack for more uses in the near future. Super stoked to have this pack, and super stocked to see the Backcountry brand releasing such awesome products!

I used this hip pack in a 100 mile speed hike, some much shorter day hikes, and mountain biking. I like its versatility and the space I get in what looks to be a small container. Fits 2 32-oz bottles. I also like how tight it can wrap around my waist; I am fairly small and this is the only hip bag that I can secure without the pain of it bouncing all around.

It holds just what I need for shorter day hikes. It holds my bottles securely and I like having my phone secure but easily accessible for quick photos. The belt buckle broke on my first one and BC replaced quickly.

A tad too small. Straps + zip don't work

The thought is there but you can't actually strap a jacket on and use the zippers if you cinch it down which is a critical flaw. I bought this because I thought I could hold a jacket on the outside and access the innner pocket without removing the jacket. This is not possible because the cincing affects the zip closure. too bad...so close yet so far.

Wanted something that could easily carry the essentials while being lightweight and comfortable. Storage is well thought out and I don't have to deal with my tools and co2 rattling around my whole ride.

I really wanted to love this pack and do in almost every way. It is extremely comfotable and you will forget it is there. The one thing keeping this from being perfect is not having any type of leash or collar for your water bottles. I specifically bought this for summer to carry the extra bottles but after about 60 miles wearing it I do not trust the bottle holders, especially on a one way flow or rowdy decent. (Backcountry if you add leashes I will buy another in a heartbeat). With that said it is fine for recreational XC or a family ride and probably perfect for hiking. I am returning it and trying an Osprey Savu 4L next because it has the dual bottle holders and they have leashes and is also reasonably priced for Osprey.

I'm an Urban dad who bike commutes and during the stay at home order wanted something that would allow me to carry some basic's while taking my 3yr old son for bike rides around the neighborhood. Water, hand sanitizer, extra masks, etc. Turned out this little pack can also handle a windbreaker on the outside. Was amazed by the amount of organization it provided. Found it incredibly comfortable even when fully loaded. No issue's while riding a bike. The only issues I found was regarding the straps and buckle. The buckle is offset, which is great, but it's tucked so far into the padding it's difficult to unbuckle/buckle. And although it fits my 34" waist there isn't much strap left over. I'd be concerned if I was a 36"+. A little more length would also allow you to wear it over your shoulder like a messenger bag.

Excellent pack, holds two 26 oz water bottles securely. straps stay tight, and the packs feels very secure. I do wish it held a little more in the main compartment. It's large enough for wallet/keys/phone, plus multi tool, patch kit & snacks. Don't think a spare tube would fit. So far the construction of the pack appears to be top notch. Would recommend it for a half day ride. Great alternative to a hydration pack, but probably won't hold quite as much. Don't plan on packing a lunch in it.

Very good, one gripe

Familiarity:

Fit:
True to size

32" waist It took a little tinkering, but once I got the straps tightened correctly it disappeared on my back. I carry a multi-tool, Leatherman Freestyle, 2 CO2 + inflator, tubeless plugs, spare link, couple of zip ties, small Lezyne HV, dog poop bags, and my phone. There's enough room left for a tube or snacks if needed. One thing I would change is switch the zippered pocket with the loops, and have 1 big loop with 2 small loops. This would let you put a pump in the big loop and have it sit in the widest part of the pack when closed. Having the loops on the bottom means it folds into the narrower part which isn't quite wide enough for my pump, which I have free-floating right now. Not a deal-breaker though.

What a game changer! Plenty of room in the zipper for my tools, phone, and snacks. The pack sits perfectly on my hips-forgot it was even there. Therefore, I was able to climb technical sections better! It was also nice not to have backpack weighting me down. So my back wasn't sore at the end of my ride. Can we also acknowledge the Shark color? Nothing on the market like it! Nice not to have the same pack as everyone else.

Killer stash pack

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This pack can be my best friend and my worst enemy mainly because there are so many spaces to hold anything and everything I may want or need. Plenty of space for tools, tire levers, spare tube, snacks, two water bottles, a cell phone and still have room left! Plus none of the back sweat or bulky pack bouncing around on your ride. Definitely a fan but I do wish the cinches stayed a bit snugger. Overall though, I am a big fan of this hip pack and it will definitely be replacing my camelbak.

What is the maximum length of the belt?

Hey There! The maximum length is 41.5 inches. Hope this helps.

Hello, what bottle size will the pack hold? Thank you, Martin

Hey Martin, The bottle sleeves will comfortably accommodate a standard 22oz water bottle. The straps across the sleeve will allow you to have smaller bottles held securely, or give you a bit more room. For best performance, I would advise you to pair the pack with two 22oz water bottles. Hope this helps to answer your question!
