I wish I'd gotten this months ago!
- 5' 5"
For cycling, this pack is everything I was looking for and more! I was hesitant, reading the reviews of this and other Osprey hydration packs, but with a little Google help and some attention to detail I can counter many of the negative comments I've seen. Here's the basic pluses though: I wanted something that not only held H2O for MTB trails, but could also work for layers and lunch on longer days and rail-trail rides. I liked that this held a full 2L bladder and also had that extra external zip pack pocket. When I first took this out of the package and put it on, I thought it was too narrow and nearly returned it. Instead I tested it out by adding a tablet and stuffing a shirt in. The weight put the pack in place and it's perfect! Some reviewers complained about the difficulty with the magnet on the end of the mouthpiece. I believe those folks may not have realized a - that you can cut the hose so that it is the right length for you personally, b - that the hose may come on the wrong side (Mine came attached to the left shoulder strap, which for me being right-handed needed to be on the right shoulder) and c - that the little magnetized clip comes loose. Once you move it so that it slides freely - I had no issues getting it clipped on the first try - easy easy - on a 3-hour trail ride recently. And after cutting the hose a couple of inches, it's even easier, though honestly it was also fine before. Here's what really caused me to love this though: the size!! Holy cow this little pack holds a lot!! I did a 3-hour/30-mile rail trail ride recently in SW Virginia. It was a cool day, low 60's and cloudy, so I knew I'd likely be on/off/on/off with my light wind jacket. I also thought if the sun came out I'd probably get hot enough to want short sleeves. So on my inaugural test ride with the new pack - it held the following: 2 full liters of water (plus an extra bottle clipped in my cage on the bike, just in case) lunch plus snacks (sandwich, apple, to-go cup of peanut butter and multiple bars/packs of nuts/etc) phone keys wallet with ID/insurance cards/etc a drywick t-shirt my light wind jacket (which I indeed took on and off throughout the day!) Earbuds in charging case Small travel/emergency bike pump pack of tissues ziplock bag of sanitizer wipes for restrooms along the way (glad I had those!) various other items - chapstick, small container of advil, band-aids, etc.... ALL of that was inside the zippered pouch of the pack and it was surprisingly not full, even so. Seriously - this little pack holds a TON of stuff!! The two outside pockets I didn't even use on this trip - but was thrilled to know I had that space for future, especially with the seasons changing and the need for heavier clothes comes into play. I can't wait. | *side note to add that it is also super lightweight and not hot. I was surprised to find that to be the case, as I tend to heat up easily, but no extra back sweat, no discomfort at all. Even fully loaded at the start, full water bladder, the pack was completely unnoticeable. Truly, this little thing would be my go-to pack of choice for planes, volcano hikes, and any other outing and adventure. Now if we could just get rid of this little virus so I can travel again... 'Til then, it'll be 2 wheels and 2 feet! Off we go!
