Verified Buyer Reviewed by M from NE Indiana on Monday, April 11, 2016This pack is really well-made like all Dakine stuff. I'm especially glad Dakine used the Hydrapak bladder and valve. The zip-close top means you turn it inside-out for cleaning and drying. The bite valve is the best around. I had to get a Hydrapak Plug and Play attachment right away, though. Otherwise you have to "fish" the tube in and out every time you fill up. I don't know why Hydrapak doesn't include one with all their bladders. I had to buy one for my last pack, too.
Overall I love this pack. Nice ventilated back and tons of adjustability in the straps. Inside storage is well-placed, and I'm sure the exterior straps will be useful.
Reviewed by Dillon from Utah on Monday, June 3, 2013It's very light weight, small, super portable, great construction, seems really well made. I wanted something convenient to carry my pocket items int (keys, wallet, etc.) as well as my handgun when not carrying in my waistband. This first the bill perfectly. It's really quite small so don't expect to fit a lot in it, it's a day pack. There's a few too many straps and buckles for me, but I guess that's because it's for bikers. But it's nice that the waist clips come off. I recommend it.
Reviewed by Beach Skater from Los Angeles on Wednesday, May 8, 2013Got this hydration pack to use on long skates (30 to 50 miles) and, after some modifications, it is great.
Pros: Low profile, stable, holds 70 ozs of water, easy to fill and empty, comfortable waist and sternum straps, several zippered and open pockets for carrying iPhone, Cliff Bars and other stuff. Good overall design.
Cons: Lousy bite valve - I used it once and then replaced it with a CamelBak valve, long floppy strap ends and a tendency for the waist strap to loosen up - I cut them down and sewed Velcro onto the remainder to keep them from flying around and keep them tight.
Reviewed by Emma the Mountain Biker from North Carolina on Thursday, April 25, 2013The actual bag is awesome but the bladder that comes with it is terrible. The mouthpiece is too hard to open while mountain biking and air stays in the tube and makes it difficult to get water.
Question & Answer
“What type of mouthpiece/valve is on this pack? Does it have a lock position? Also, someone mentioned a zip closure at the top of the water bag. Can someone tell me more about that?”
The mouth piece does have a locking position and the blabber does not have a zipper, it has a "slid and lock mechanism". Kind of like a sliding clamp.
“Does this pack have capacity to carry personal items such as camera, light weight change of clothes, small food supplies?”
Might be a tight fit.
If you're also carrying the typical repair items (tubes, pump, misc. tools) this might be a tight fit, unless you are able to use the straps to secure some clothing items outside.
