- HU: Evoc fanny pack £34
just ordered one of these, anyone with longterm experience, i’ve read the camelbak continually slips
use code ECWJ2R for £5 off = £33.15
black or olive green (no bladder included) (its £71 for the bladder set)
seems a good price, it’ll hold a bottle, or bladder so considering ordering the ergon 1.5l bladder as i cant find a reasonably priced evoc onePosted 8 months ago
Our daughter has been racing using mine as her backpack hurts her shoulder [broken collar bone injury]
She came back from the EWS yesterday and had used mine in practice but had to use a backpack for the race which held her back protector.
She raved about it so much that we ordered another last night, so I can have mine back
My only concern is in the event of a crash that it may put too much pressure on one part of the spine
Mine stays in place but that might be a women thingPosted 8 months agotuskaloosaSubscriber
I’ve been using one now for about 6 months with a 500ml bottle no bladder.. holds a fair amount ( spare tube, co2 cartridge, assortment of bandages/band aids and some pain killers, lezyne pump, tubeless repair kit, small container of links etc and my multi tool). If it’s a night ride I tend to thrown in the foil blanket if I’m on my own.
Doesn’t move much I like the padding at the back as well. Not sure how it will hold out with a bladder.
I have slight difficulty in trying to cinch the straps tighter when it’s on my waist so pre-cinch the straps and then dorn the pack.
At that price it’s a bargain.Posted 8 months agobullroarSubscriber
Recently bought one with a bladder. Used it on couple of rides, works fine, much less intrusive than a back pack. If you fill the bladder to 1.5L space is limited so I have been running mine at 1L which is enough. Agree about it not being the easiest to cinch when wearing it but even when not fully tight it doesn’t move around much.
The bladder is made by Hydrapak but Evoc branded. It fully opens so can be turned inside out to dry. The hose routing is a bit fiddly and attaches to the waist band or jersey using a clip and magnet, ultimately it might require a Plan B for when the clip goes AWOL.Posted 8 months agoalpinMember
that’s cheap… paid 80€ for mine with the bladder back in Jan.
never use the bladder as my frame takes a 750ml bottle which if i drink a pint of water before setting off does me ok for a few hours, although saying that i did stuff a 500ml bottle in the net the other week on an big ride.
pack easily carries essential tools, some nuts/bars and a Montane windproof. i usually stuff a long sleeve through the loops on the long ups.
even using a Bluegrass back protector my back is no where near as sweaty as it was when riding with a pack.Posted 8 months agobullandbladderMember
Surprisingly good. If you’re not sure about going for an arse-pack you could do a lot worse. I changed the hose/valve on mine for a spare Camelbak one. The supplied valve is a bit crap.Posted 8 months agodirkpitt74Subscriber
I’ve got a Camelbak FlashFlo – picked it up in the Wiggle sale last year with 1.5l bladder for about £20.
Used it quite a bit and it’s less bulky than a back pack.
As others have said if you fill the bladder full it doesn’t leave much room for other stuff in the pack.
You have to keep adjusting the belt as you go through the water though – I found the little side cinch straps didn’t make much difference.Posted 8 months agovincienupSubscriber
Ok I got suckered too… sounded like a good price to try one at. Mines held up to 22nd to, so blatantly awaiting stock. No worries, I’ve learned never to order from Tredz if I’m in a hurry.
So, apart from the standard Hydrapac, what fits and what’s recommended bladder wise?Posted 8 months ago
