Keep 'em coming!

Ditch the backpack and join the lumbar pack movement with the burly, comfortable Dakine Hot Laps 5L Lumbar Pack. Crafted from tough-as-nails materials, this pack securely conforms to your waist with an adjustable buckle and breathable, AirFlow backpanel to provide a fit that you won't even notice as you rally berms and pump rollers. It comes equipped with a squat, lumbar-shaped, two-liter hydration reservoir, and still has plenty of space to stow all the gear you're used to having on hand for your rides. The magnetic buckle auto-locates your hydration hose for fumble-free access, and a Phaser bite valve at the end of that hose provides squishy, easy sipping that won't hurt your teeth. Internal organizer pockets carry along tubes, tools, snacks, maps, and your phone, while external attachment points securely clip your safety lights and folding knife to help get you out of tough situations.

  • Get out there with just your trail essentials in this lumbar pack
  • Durable construction holds up through rougher rides
  • AirFlow backpanel promotes cool breathability
  • Hydrapak two-liter reservoir keeps hydration close at hand
  • Multiple pockets and attachments points carry your vital items
  • Side compression straps secure and stabilize the fit

Made for Trail

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this to replace a day pack I was previously using when riding my mountain bike. So far I am psyched on this pack. It has the perfect amount of room for all the tools you need to carry and a few snacks. The exterior lashing on the bottom works great for being able to strap an extra layer on in case you get hit with some inclement weather. The bladder is the perfect size for short or long rides. This pack is also low profile enough that i usually forget I'm wearing it. The only improvement I see down the line would be better strapping to orient the pack a little better on your lower back and some smaller stache pockets like the EVOC comparable packs. That being said I love this pack and if you are debating making the move over to a hip pack over a backpack I would highly recommend it.

Great Lumbar Pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Starting to see these everywhere, and I can understand why. Super comfortable, durable, and useful. We were worried that this would cause an issue with sweat or temperature but the AirFlow panel really does help with the breathability in the heat. Best pack so far!

I wanted to love this!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this for my girlfriend and here is her review:

I really wanted to love this waist pack. I got it because of all the great reviews on this site and from friends. I think the bag was made very well, it is very functional and stylish. However, it has been VERY uncomfortable for me. I tried it on 2 rides and 1 hike. I'm on the bigger side for a female cyclist, size L-XL, and this pack cuts into me in a painful way. I cannot find a comfortable spot on my waist/hips for it to rest. Like I said, I know people who love these and I'm guessing it has to do with their size.

Fanny gang

    So much easier to use than a backpack and your back doesnt get super sweaty and it holds enough water to do almost any ride and it has enough room to carry a spare tube and food.

    Wayyy better then a backpack.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Fit is simple, effective and roomy when needed (5L option)
    Plenty of space for a tube, tools, nutrition and a fairly full bladder
    Small outside easy access pockets for a tiny tool or chapstick.
    Magnet bladder hose holder holds great even on the wild decents
    Overall adjustable with a good amount of straps.

    When full the bladder is pretty bouncy, I have to fill half and bring a water bottle.. which is no big deal really.

    Straps to compress work, but if you are running really light they dont compress the bag enough for me.

    No closure option on the hose so sitting in the back of my car it sometimes leaks a little

    All in all I am very happy with this and would take this any day over a backpack for the coolness (both temperature and style points) factor.

    No More Sweaty Back!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This hip pack is awesome and keeps the back sweat free from backpack sweat marks. I have found that loading the pack with 1/2 to 1 L makes it the most comfortable to ride with especially if you are carying a tool and repair kit. Love the magnetic hydration tube which is easy to snap back into place while riding. Also has good compartments for storing tools/extra tubes or plugs.

    So Much Cooler than a Backpack

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    For exceptionally long rides where more than 2 liters of water, layers, snacks, and more are needed, a traditional pack would make sense. For rides under a few hours, this is the perfect go to. As the reservoir becomes less full, you can cinch down the straps on the side, allowing for a tighter fit, reducing the chance of the pack bouncing up and down. The straps on the bottom are perfect for holding pads or a jacket. The interior of the pack has compartments and elastic straps perfect for organization. If all of that wasn't enough to sell you, then purchase this item knowing that you will look incredibly stylish and all of your riding buddies will be envious. Plus, your back has the freedom to breathe freely.

    Hopped on the fanny train

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Fanny's used to be whack but last year they came right back and I hopped on the train. This thing is truly awesome. It fits perfectly snug around the waste with easy access to the hydration hose. My favorite part is that it stays secure and doesn't bounce/move around when you opening it up on the descents or get some airtime. As a previous reviewer said, it's my go-to for everything except a big all day ride when a backpack would be required.

    Fannypacks are BACK!!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    They can call it whatever they want, but at the end of the day, it's a fannypack with a hydration system hose sticking out of it, and it's perfect for MTB!!! And it's another "why didn't I think of this first". This is well made (as with most Dakine stuff) and the 5L version allows me to take just the essentials (tube, small pump, levers, car keys, small amount of food, small tools), along with a bladder full of water for a day of riding. Just a couple of tips, based on my experience. When fully loaded, I cinch down the strap and keep the pack sitting just over my hips. Keeps the pack in place and stable, no matter how technical it gets. Loosen the pack, as I consume the water, allowing the pack to ride a little lower on my back to increase comfort. Second, don't overfill the bladder, in fact, fill it to just under the Max indicator. Too much water makes it very difficult to fit into the pack. Other than that, extremely satisfied with this system and my go-to for anything under 3 hours.

    DAKINE Hot Laps 5L Lumbar Pack

      Not too big, not too small. I use this for everything but full-day rides. I can even keep a lightweight layer inside when the hydration system is full.
