I really can't recommend this pack.

You can't dump the water without getting your pack wet.
You can't fill it without getting your pack wet.
The water and the center compartment share the same space so you if you store stuff in that compartment, you have to empty it to get a full water bag and then put it back in.

There's not really room for a spare mountain tire.
The bottom compartment that doubles as a saddle-bag is a kludge. It works, but who'd actually switch it back and forth? (I'm considering seeing if I can put a bigger saddle pack there that'll fit a mountain tube and the tools that're in there).

The only good thing is that the water compartment is insulated and keeps it cold/cool in hot weather -- especially if you add ice!

External access to a 72-oz Omega HydroTanium Reservoir, makes refilling the Velocity during a century ride quick and easy. An innovative and unique detachable saddlebag allows a cyclist to add or detach 30 cubic inches of cargo depending on length of ride. Insulated to keep liquid cool. Low profile design. Sternum strap for stability. Reflectivity improves low-light visibility.
