- Dakine hydration packs and which computer?
2 completely different questions here:
1- Need a new hydration pack, my tescos bladder has started leaking and it’s a bit small anyway. I’m looking at Dakine as I have an older Dakine backpack which is by far the comfiest backpack I’ve used. Which of the mid-priced (around £50) models should I be looking at bearing in mind I may be getting a DSLR in a few months, so needs enough room for that + all usual tools and probably a thin jacket as well. If not Dakine, who else does something with a similar build quality and comfort?
2- want a computer for my road bike to track my mileage mainly. Not too fussy so long as it’s accurate and will clamp onto 31.8mm bars. If possible I would like the option to be able to turn off the current speed from being displayed as I find this a bit demotivating on climbs and such..Posted 7 years agoLummoxSubscriber
Second the dakine nomad, great tool spares pocket, foldaway straps for pads/ tripod? Fleece lined glasses pocket, massive main section and separate bladder section. Also bombproof consruction.
Only neg is the bite valve on the reservoir, cut it off and fit camelbak bite valve.Posted 7 years agoJamieMember
3-4 years ago I bought a Camelbak Mule. I found the straps surprisingly uncomfortable and sold it on and bought a Dakine Nomad.

…as for Q2. I use my Forerunner 405 these days, but before used a Cateye Micro Wireless which seemed quite good.Posted 7 years agogbichanSubscriber
I have a drafter. Carry a DSLR with 18-200mm lens plus usual spares and waterproof jacket no problem. Struggle to fit the camera in when I’m carrying a full face and pads but don’t tend to chance the good camera when I’m doing something more risky anyway. Would happily recommend the bag.
