I use a dakine session. carries the essentials and barely noticable on.
What are the bladders like on the Dakine’s?
I was about to stick this on the classifieds when i got round to it.
Any use? Its in good nick, but no bladder. Camelback MULE.
Thanks for the offer but I need a new bladder as well.Posted 6 years agovondallySubscriber

Not bitter, just tight 😀
And a bit annoyed at wasting a lot of cash over the years on expensive backpacks.
The Decathlon one above is excellent, as is the Alpkit Gourdon I use too.
Neither cost more than £20.00 and both are better than the pricey ones I used to buy.Posted 6 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I’m after something smaller that will carry pump, tube, levers, keys, phone.
I’ve got 2 rucksacks, a tiny camelpack one which litteraly holds a helmet lamp battery a litre of water and the stuff you describe. A bigger lezyne one, which is OK but I don’t really like, it was cheep though and holds a lot of water + food + gear for all day rides. but for short rides you cant beat a jersey and a bottle on the frame. Soo much nicer. Even for slightly longer rides I only suplement it with a 0.2l saddle bag to take the CO2, tube, levers, patches, chain links, and multitool so I can keep a gillet and wallet/phone/key in the jersey for even less weight.

Used a variety of packs, including Camebak, Dakine and Deuter, and I still go back to my Wingnut – in terms of gimmick-free, functional, ergonomic design it’s the best I’ve used by a country mile. Otherwise I’d personally go Dakine again, or Osprey.
Other half has an Osprey Raptor 10 – very nice piece of kit, albeit one supplied with a punctured reservoir.Posted 6 years ago
