Fantastic light hiking or mountain biking pack.


  • Lightweight
  • 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.
