Great pack but 2014 bladder lid is poor
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pack is a great size for a full day ride. Tube, bike tools, patches, pump, 3L of water, food, and a thin jacket all fit. Well organized inside. Waist belt zipper pockets are awesome!

One important complaint though: The 2014 bladder lid is terrible. It is very hard to get my fingers between the frame and the cap to screw and unscrew it. Also the lid keeper is very tight and makes it even harder to screw, I removed my lid keeper. One time I thought it was screwed tight only to find out that I had cross threaded it and it leaked all over the place.

Stock photo: try to get your fat fingers in there with enough force to close the lid. Harder than it should be.

Awesome, but stuff pocket too small
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this thing, tiny, light, hood cinch works well, zipper works well, good fit. This over a base layer and R1 is perfect for a cool day of XC skiing or other heavier activity. Slightly water resistant. Great for cutting the wind at the top of a cliff.

Downfall: The stuff pocket is too small. I sewed extra material onto the pocket to make it so I can stuff it more easily. Without the modification, it took a good minute to cram it in tight enough to zip closed. With a crude, hand-sewn mod and added zipper pull, it is way easier and quicker to pack away and start up the next pitch.

Super fast to install, would take about 5 mins to swap to your friend's car. Universal mount fits on any bars. Fast and effective loading of your bike.

Complaints: Cable lock is pretty wimpy. Rear ratchet strap needs to be longer, I can barely fit it around my 2.2 tires, glad I dont need it to fit around fatties.

I have been using green for a year now, love them and they fit great. I had a thought that perhaps it was a bit too high of an arch though, so I tried blue. I use F (11.5-13 M) and have a size 12 foot. I find the green to fit perfect, and the blue to be too narrow in the heel. As for the arch support, exactly as you would expect, just a bit shorter than green.
