- New waist pack user feedback
After 10 years with a Mule, I got a Dakine Hot Laps 5L for both hydration and tools/tube.
It’s very pleasant as it gives more freedom of movement and less sweatyness.
Drinking is less intuitive as replacing the pipe back in position is still a bit hit and miss.
Overall it’s great though and I would recommend it.Posted 10 months ago
Agreed, I got the cheapish Evoc PSA one, great for MTB, family bike rides and even ran half a dozen hill races with it, rock solid due to having a nice big wide waist band and a half decent strap locking system.Posted 10 months ago
I use the Hot Laps 2 with a bottle on the bike, I really like it.Posted 10 months ago
I love my fanny pack, wouldn’t be without it. Still use a proper pack for big days or when the weather looks changeable and spare layers might be needed.Posted 10 months ago
Yeah it’s good eh! I have the 5l with the bladder for bigger days out and the smaller hot laps with the bottle for evening rides. Neither are too bouncy and sit well on my hipsPosted 10 months ago
I’ve got the Evoc one from the PSA earlier in the year.Posted 10 months ago
Even with the 1.5 litre bladder full I can still get multitool, small pump, snacks, keys, snacks and my Altura Mayhem 2 waterproof in it.
Another fan of the Hotlap 5L. Just wish it could hold the chin guard from my helmet like my old Drafter can.Posted 10 months ago
I must have have missed out on the Evoc PSA, how much was it? The Dakine 5L was £42 deliveredPosted 10 months ago
+1 for the Hot Laps, no more sweaty back.Posted 10 months ago

Not much cheaper tbh Nick, 30 quid or thereabouts.Posted 10 months ago
I got myself a camelbak repack. Holds plenty, very comfortable. I use a bottle on the frame so took the bladder out for more room/less weight, but you’d easily get enough for a shorter ride in there even with a hydration bladder in there.Posted 10 months ago

Where from please?Posted 10 months ago
Ditto here on the Evoc PSA. Liked it so much I bought the expensive bladder to go with it. Amazing what it can hold actually.Posted 10 months ago
I have a camelbak, not sure what model but not the latest model.
Fit isn’t great but it is so much more pleasant to have my back open to the breeze that I really don’t mind.
I’ve often wondered if on a hot day i loose more fluid wearing a back pack than i actually carry.Posted 10 months ago

It was with Sprocket Cycles 2 weeks ago but they don’t seem to list it anymore. I should have posted a PSA sorry, as this is better VFM than the Evoc at £38 without bladder and magnet, which the Dakine has as std.Posted 10 months ago
I have a recent Camelbak Repack, really good. The fit works and I find it as secure as a backpack. It can get a little bouncy with a full bladder but that subsides once I’ve had a couple of drinks. Great to slim down for anything other than all day rides. I’ve had it a year and I’ve gone back to my Camelbak full pack only maybe once.Posted 10 months ago
I am using a 30 year old Podsacs one had been discarded I attic, unloved. It does catch A LOT of muck that would other wise be sprayed up my back.Posted 10 months ago
