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.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This bell is nice and small on my handlebar and fits well. It was easy to put on the bike.

I use this mountain biking and it's plenty loud on the trail. I'm not sure about city riding like another review mentioned.

I've been eyeing up this bag for a while and finally bought it. I'm so glad I did!

I love the bright color but besides the look there's so many great things about this bag. The reservoir is 3 liters and easy to fill up. The bite nozzle is magnetic so it's easy to quickly grab a sip while you are riding and clip it back on all while not missing a beat in your pedaling. The air pocket on the back is awesome. I don't sweat nearly as much as I have with other hydration packs on my back. I barely notice this one is there.

While this pack does fit everything I need for riding, it's a bit tight in there. It fits my spare tube, pump, tools, phone and a couple of energy bars. However one evening it got late and I tried to put my sunglasses in there. It was a tight fit with everything else in it. I'm thinking that the 10 might have provided me the little extra bit of space that I'd like without adding too much bulk.

This bag seems really durable also. I've used it many times and it still looks brand new!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really liked how cute this top was. It did not look like your typical bike top. However, the fit was really strange. It was tight in the bust, especially in the underarm area. But then the integrated bra elastic at the bottom was super loose. I wouldn't be able to bike in this top with that fit so sadly I returned it.
