James Alcornwrote a review of Evoc FR Enduro Protector Hydration Backpack on March 19, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
There are a few things I like about this pack such as the general look and styling of it, overall fit, non-bulkyness of it. But I think it would be better if the waist strap was the same width as the buckles as it feels a bit like what I imagine a girder would feel like and it really makes you sweat. It would be nice if there was a half-way decent place to put a cell phone. The top compartment isn't as the phone just sloshes around in there and is difficult to reach. I would rather see one of the stretchy sleeve pockets on both sides of the pack actually have a zipper and be fleece lined for a cell phone. I probably would have chosen a different pack had I thought about these things more. In the end, it's just a cool looking average pack with an above average price tag.
