Ive used a Dakine pack for the last few years. Its great but is too small, it only holds a litre of water and a multitool/phone etc.
I dont need an expedition size bag but as well as a bit more water something I could stow some food, a jacket etc in, mibbes 10 litre or so.
Id rather not spend mega bucks tbh, and much as I love the bright colours they are murder for an OCD like me to keep clean.
What say you?
