- Hydration packs. Name yours.
I recently went from an old Camelbak Mule (with 3l Antidote bladder) to an Osprey Raptor 14. They both great packs but overall the Osprey just takes it. It has some great features (the toolroll in the bottom of the pack – removable if needs be), the little magnet on the hose that attachs to the sternum strap, the ease of getting the bladder in and out. The bladder itself is pretty good too. 14l is big enough for all dayers and the storage pockets on the waist strap are useful to stash Haribo in! It’s wider and doesn’t sit as proud from your back as a fully packed MULE. Pretty impressed overall. YMMV!
Rogan Josh – seriously? Seems the worst of both worlds. What’s so bad about a bladder? You don’t have to stop to drink, you can hold more, like rob jackson says, it doesn’t dig in & you can use it as a pillow when bivvying.Posted 4 years agoCalamity JamesMember
EVOC 10cc pack for everyday riding, used with a Camelbak 3L bladder. EVOC nice and low profile, plenty big enough for most occasions.
Camelbak Hawg NV when I want to take my SLR camera or more stuff than I probably need for safety’s sake. Feels huge after wearing my EVOC pack.Posted 4 years agodragonMember
Camelback Chaos which is as mentioned above is brilliant.
Camelback Rogue (v. old) which is rubbish, no waist strap so it moves around a lot.
Berghaus Vapour (15L), which has some nice features, but must be the least waterproof pack ever, it’s hardly even showerproof. Like all Berghaus rucksacks I’ve had, it has annoying flaws, that make you wonder if they ever tested it outside the design office.Posted 4 years ago
