Sweet pack to ride with. I love the gazillion pockets that you can store everything in. I wish it was a touch bigger, but I am sure Dakine has a reason.
Not sure why they don't make an off-the-back model either, but still a pretty nice pack. Worked for both riding up and then down Mt Ashland. Then the next weekend riding Seattle to Portland on a Roadie, carrying a tent and a sleeping bag on it. So it is definitely versatile! Name another hydration pack that can do that!!!!
