Hydration Tech

I wanted a hydration pack that had medium storage capacity. The Race EXP is half the size of my main bag, yet it holds my helmet, emergency kit, keys, wallet and more. The spring frame with mesh panels keeps the pack off of my back --I like that a lot! The adjustable sternum straps and other features make this a well thought out bag. I'll reserve judgment on the rain cover and the reservoir until I use them.
