Got a free red, white, and blue Consigliere on a promo from a friend. It is a nice pack, not a lot of volume, but is great for short runs up the canyon.
I didn't keep it long as I was not impressed with the color/volume and have far too many bags to my name anyways. I did like the separate camera pocket and the straps (since they were super adjustable and velcro'd down).
Would probably be a great snowboarding pack as it is toted here in Utah.
Although this is designed as a "men's" hydration pack,…
Size: 7 Litre - 2 Litre Bladder
Number of Pockets: 3 plus straps at bottom and outside for pads
Height of Owner: 5'4"
Price Paid: $120 Canadian
Although this is designed as a "men's" hydration pack, I fits me comfortably and I'm a 5'4", 117 lb., narrow shouldered woman. Tried on lots of other types of hydration packs, none fit as well. Doesn't ride up around your neck in order to snug it up across the chest. Perfect length for a shorter torso, doesn't rub up against your tailbone!
I've used it for hiking and when mountain biking. Can wear it for 6 hours easily in hot weather, just over a jersey and no chafing. Lots of room for extra layer, food, rain jacket, camera, spare tube, multi-tool. I'll probably use this on the winter hikes too. Stable on your back and really comfortable to wear.
The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because I wish they'd included a helmet clip in the design, rather than the straps for pads.
