- Recommend me a backpack?
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.

I was after similar to you, around 10L, also i’m not bothered about hydration packs.Posted 4 years ago
After looking at a few options i bought an Osprey Syncro 10.
It can take a hydration pack but it’s an extra so i use the space for other items, all Osprey bike packs have a helme holder which is very useful.
Yep it’s about £80, with a very good bladder (3l baffles to keep it’s shape 1/4 turn opening) That hooks properly into the bag. Proper pockets for stuff.
I’m guessing the EVOC doesn’t come with bladder?
I’m a bit out of touch with camel back prices as this one was a present and the last one lasted for 7 years. It’s only died as 1 zip has gone the rest of them work and it still gets used as a spare bag. After trying a few others back then these work and last. Back to price vs value.Posted 4 years agotheblackmountMember
I’ve got Dakine packs – bombproof but heavy. As are the Evoc’s – good for posing around Trail Centres I guess 😉 Depends how much weight means to you.
These are superb – very light ( 1/2 to 2/3 the weight of the above depending on model)and a hell of a lot tougher than they look:
Clever bladder system which is stored low down / wraps around your Kidneys.Posted 4 years agocpSubscriber
black camelbak mule from Merlin for less than 60 quid?Posted 4 years agoMackemMember
I’ve got an Osprey Viper, it’s great.
45 quid with hydration pack…Posted 4 years agoAlexSubscriber
Lots of good packs there. 90% of the time I ride with a Camelbak Charge LR. Light but tough, bladder is round the waist (only 2ltr tho) and easily enough space for tube/pump/rain jacket/tools and a sarnie. I much prefer this to my old Lobo mainly because the weight of the water is non your hips.Posted 4 years ago
