Platypus Tokul X.C. 8.0
Source: received it as a sample, freebie, or prize (Evergreen Mountain Biking Association)
Fantastic light hiking or mountain biking pack.
- Big Zip hydration pouch
- Decent sized pouch for carrying rain jacket, phone, keys...
- Would like a hard cover pocket for protecting phone.
- A touch narrow for people with really broad shoulders
I'm an avid, though novice, mountain biker and this pack has been great. It's a lightweight hydration pouch with the Big Zip hydration pouch which is a real boon. The Big Zip pouch is the quickest and easiest pouch to fill and empty. The pouch itself is a great size for carrying a light rain jacket, a pair of gloves, a phone and car keys.
I'd love to have a hard cover over the pouch to give me a little more protection for my phone, but otherwise, it's fantastic.
