Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Ever since my first Osprey backpack I have always been a fan of the design and quality. For my longer mtb rides I definitely needed a 3 liter water bladder plus room for bike gear (tools, snacks, etc.) so I went with the Raptor 10 over the Raptor 6. The Raptor 6 has a 3 liter bladder, however there is not much space for bike gear when the bladder is at full capacity. The compression straps on the Raptor 10 meant to prevent gear from shifting when the pack isn’t stuffed full is what sold me on the bigger size. The pack breathes much better than my Camelback Lobo (3 liter bladder). The only thing that I am concerned about with this pack is that the bladder seems like it will fail early at the seams where soft and hard plastic pieces meet. My plan is to switch to a Camelback or Platypus bladder once this one fails (only a 1-year warranty on the Hydraulics system from Osprey). Upgrade the hydration system and this will be a solid pack for biking and hiking.
