An almost perfect hydration pack with storage

Verified Buyer Reviewed by kathyr from Seattle on Wednesday, May 13, 2015
First let me be clear: I Love Backpacks! I have more than any one person could possibly need-or so my husband tells me. I wanted to wait until after a 6-day self-guided bike trip in Umbria and Tuscany to send a review as this is the pack I eventually ended up taking with me while on the bike. I found the size perfect--I was able to put hat, gloves, a windbreaker, snack, sunscreen, ID and small coin purse, and rain jacket in the large pouch and belt pockets. I love the horizontal 2L hydration pouch and my only complaint is that it was a bit awkward to install once full. I never did quite figure out how the side straps cinched in as the pouch emptied so I ended up tucking the sides in, which still allowed me full use of the belt pockets. Once in place and on the back, the backpack was extremely comfortable, and I could not really feel the weight of the water. This is probably the best biking pack I have found so my husband inherited my previous pack, which was also very good but just not the same fit or capacity.
