After a Few Months Use...
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The pack is still awesome. I often am out riding 4-5 hours or more and the number one thing I like about this pack is that I forget it is there (except for the mouth tube). Plus, the two pockets offer a fair amount of room for keys, a couple protein bars, wallet up top and the bottom is available for shedding smaller items like knee warmers/skull cap (both fit together) or shoe covers. The bottom can also fit a base layer.
I also have a water bottle attached to my frame that I use for an electrolyte mix. Could use the pack for that too but prefer water. Its been through rain, mud, it's easy to clean, reasonably easy to fill on the road. I have not felt a need for anything larger (a question when I bought it, and I'm glad I chose this one).
