    Syncline 16L Hydration Pack

    Why have a quiver of hydration packs when one will do the trick? Dakine's versatile Syncline 16L Hydration is low-profile enough to join you on quick lunchtime rides, but boasts enough storage for your long weekend excursions. Plus, it stays super stable through all of it thanks to its lumbar-reservoir design. Perfect for rugged switchbacks and bumpy downhills, the lumbar reservoir places the weight of the water-load towards the bottom of the pack, ensuring a more stable ride and keeping you on-balance when your water starts to slosh around. The hose still feeds over the shoulder straps like a traditional reservoir, and features a bite valve and magnetic hose-clip for convenient drinking. On hot days you'll be glad you've got a breathable Air Flow material on the straps and back panel, and when you need to do some emergency repairs on your bike or tires you can reach into the handy tool-organizer pocket in a flash.

    • Streamlined and stable pack for any and all of your trail rides
    • 3-liter lumbar reservoir keeps the load low for greater stability
    • Breathable straps and back panel keep you cool in the heat
    • Bike-tool pocket keeps repair gear organized and close by
    • High-flow hydration hose features a bite-valve for ease of use
    • Magnetic clip keeps your hose in place on rugged terrain
    • Helmet and armor attachments add convenient storage
    • Integrated rescue whistle keeps you prepared for emergencies
    • Item #DAK01LX

    Ok pack, not great

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I'll preface this by stating that I've been using an Osprey Syncro 20 for the last however long....it's fairly beat up now and I needed a new pack but, not to be picky, that model is only offered in red (too flash for me). I've heard good things about Dakine and how this company really cares about riding/riders so I thought I'd take a chance on their product. First off, there aren't a lot of buzzes/whistles with the pack..i.e., the shoulder straps are fairly minimal (no padding) and the waist belt is just that, a waist belt. This isn't really a problem but overloading the pack might cause comfort issues on longer rides (3+ hours). There are two side pockets, one mesh, one zippered which will carry something of use, I'm sure. The cushioned stow pocket is big enough for a pair of glasses, maybe a phone, etc....nothing too big though. The pack has room enough in the outer ("tool") compartment for all the junk I carry on my rides (stuff to fix my bike: frame pump, shock pump, spare tube/inflator(s), tool pack/etc.). Two zippers secure it along with two velcro tabs at the top (not a fan of velcro, long term). The main compartment is decreased in volume due to the water bladder occupying the lower portion of that area so stuffing a jacket/windbreaker, etc. is limited. That said, there are straps that can be deployed from under the bottom of the pack that are advertised to carry pads (which I don't have/use) which I probably could use to secure a jacket (rain or otherwise). Not a great solution but one I'd have to use. The water bladder is following what I've noticed is a new concept of placing it down lower in the bag (vertical) so it essentially rests on your lower back and not all along your spine (horizontal). I don't necessarily like this but, then again, I don't remember when I've filled up a water bag to 3L so it's kinda of becoming a nonissue for me. Getting to the bladder is pretty nifty/clean due to it being in a separate compartment, of sorts, and makes for filling it up a breeze..the hose is a quik-connect too so that's pretty cool. The pack material is durable enough but I'm curious about it's long term hold up. All in all...it's an OK pack and will do for most uses.

    Does the bladder have a connection to separate it from the hose entirely? Or would the hose have to be routed out each time I want to clean/fill the bladder?
