Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bob in NH from White Mts, New Hampshire on Monday, May 29, 2017I bought the pack mainly because of the no sweat suspension frame and secondly the 100oz bladder with reviews of no rubber taste which others lack having. I ordered the Thermal insulated bladder covering elsewhere since it wasn't available here to keep my water cold all day. I am not a cyclist, but hike and this pack will accomplish my needs with its extra expansion for carrying needed items for a day hike. The pack is made sturdy and well thought for the users needs. Very impressive and I highly recommend it to minimize those sweaty backs we all hate. I'm sure the trend will be gearing this way in the future now that its exposed. Why have it any other way....
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rockerc from Tucson on Saturday, May 6, 2017I finally cracked and recycled my trusty old Dakine pack. This seems a worthy replacement. The 100 oz reservoir is a must here in the desert, and airflow to my back is also highly desirable. This ticked those boxes, and I liked the idea of the pockets at the waist band for access to essentials without taking off the pack. I have never worn a chest or waist strap on my hydration packs, as I always thought them restricting, but thought I would give this a try. Glad I did!
It did not take long to get used to the straps, and they do make the pack feel more secure. The wire frame and air gap to the back are extremely comfortable, and even loaded up with additional water bottle, snacks, tools, spares and all the other necessary bits to survive in the desert on long MTB rides, this feels about as good as a pack of this weight could. So far I have used it on several half day rides in 90 degree heat and it never feels too much. The straps and helmet holder are well thought out and user-friendly, the reservoir is easily removable, quickly cleaned, and seems durable.
My only slight niggles are:
- The cap on the valve is not easily removable with one hand, so I just leave it dangling and put it back on when I stop. The valve itself can easily be unscrewed with one hand and is quick to do.
- The zippers on the waist pockets are difficult to zip up again where they are positioned. You would need the arms of an orangutan to achieve 2 handed operation. I have now figured out a way to zip these up fully with one hand now, but it does involve a good measure of digital dexterity that is slightly annoying.
- The side mesh pockets could be usefully a little bigger so as to be able to hold water bottles, but this would make the whole pack less sleek, so a minor thing only. I usually take a full 100 oz and another plastic bottle inside the pack for emergencies.
Overall, a great product tho!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by High Country Hunter from colorado on Thursday, April 20, 2017Under a full pack with hydration reservoir the back mesh support panel smashes out flat giving no suspension or air circulation. It might work for light loads I'm just not sure how you would keep the pack stable and square on your back if not secured down. Not for me.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anne from Sedona AZ on Monday, April 10, 2017This pack is comfortable, has adequate H2O pack, and space for small lunch and light jacket. I like the way it sits on my hips and also how the internal frame provides ventilation to your back. I would recommends this product.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kim R. from North Carolina on Monday, March 27, 2017I read a lot of reviews and watched a lot of videos to figure out which pack I wanted. This is a great pack - it's light, the pockets are very useful, and the mesh back and straps keep me cool. The 3L of water is a great size for long hikes and there is no yucky taste in the bag or the line. I'm pretty new to hiking, so I'm not used to carrying a pack - but I love this bag.
Oh! And it arrived much quicker than the shipping estimate said, which is great because it came in time for our camping/hiking trip! Thanks so much!
