Comfort and protection.

Hi there, I am interested in purchasing...

Hi there, I am interested in purchasing one of the POC VPD 2.0 packs, and was looking at both the 15l and 16l, they look drastically different in size in the pictures, oddly enough with the 15 being much larger. I am wondering if there is actually any difference to them other then size? I want a relatively minimalistic size bag, which the picture of the 16 seems to display, however, logically the 15 should be smaller. Thanks in advance for any insight!


Great Pack- so far so good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this pack for downhill mountain biking and it has been great so far. Great fit, the protection is still flexible enough that i do not feel motion is impaired.The hydration pack compatibility is great helped a lot when riding porcupine rim in moab. Still tons of room for my tire pump, spare tubes, and snacks

Will a 3L Camelback Bladder WORK with the POC VPD 2.0 Spine Pack 16?

I believe POC works specifically with Hydrapak and built their hydration sleeve to fit their 2L and 3L models. Camelbaks models are actually a little larger in than their models but should fit in this pac. now keep in mind that if you do go with the 3L you will have less room for everything else.

I actually out of curiosity just tried to stick my 3L camelbak bladder in my Poc, it did fit. But as Wayne said it did take up more room so you must account for the lack of space for other things in the pack
