Who needs a backpack?

Only have time for a couple of quick laps before work? Then leave the bulky backpack at home and load up the basics in the Dakine Low Rider 5L Hydration Pack. The 70oz Hydrapak reservoir holds more than enough water for a short session, and the Phaser valve allows hands-free drinking so you don't have to waste any precious time stopping to stay hydrated. Breathable air mesh keeps you from getting soaked with sweat during mid-day rides, while the safety light attachment and reflective logo help you stay visible when you're riding in low light after work. Internal organizer pockets and a padded fleece-lined pocket keep your tools, spare tubes, energy gels, and phone secure and in order.

Game changer

    I went into this product with hope, but admittedly a bit of skepticism due to my particular taste being so off the wall from previous injuries. I was hoping to find a solution to carrying a moderate amount of equipment, without having to use a backpack, due to the amount of strain and lack of comfort on my shoulders while climbing. For a while I switched to Frame based techniques, but I still ended up packing certain things in my pockets, and just like any other trail slayer, I hated it. Dakine really nailed down a solution for those of us that aren’t huge on the previous pack models. The fit is spot on, and wearing an equal amount of weight around my waste wasn’t a major learning curve at all. I was able to carry everything I needed, and even left the water bottle behind to make sure I wasn’t too loaded down. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking to stray away from bulky hydra-packs.

    Great Alternative to a Small Backpack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have been able to take the Lowrider on a few rides and so far am very pleased. The hydration bladder is huge for a fanny pack and the closer system is a lot easier to use than camelback's system. Even when full of water the pack did not flap around excessively and the interior of the pack still had lots of room for a layer and snacks. The only problem I found with the pack is that the interior pockets are hard to access when the pack is full of water. The mesh pockets in the interior aren't really that functional at that point. pocket accessibility and compartmentalization are both better on the camelback Palos.

    The Best!

    Tired of people laughing at the sweat stains under your riding backpack? Consolidate all that mess just above your rump. Low profile and comfortable to ride with.

    Jumped on the Bandwagon!

    Well, after much debate, I went for it and jumped on the fanny pack bandwagon. As someone who has a tendency to pack too much even for a short ride, I am hoping this will help curb those habits.

    I've only taken it out for a few rides, and while I still like the concept, I am still getting used to it. I always want to have enough water so I start every ride with 2 full liters- making the pack slightly cumbersome but after a little bit and drinking water, the load gets easier to carry. I'm obsessed with the color, and tired of having a big pack for shorter rides. I also find it super funny that fanny packs are back in style so this is also an entertaining trend for me!

    But overall the functionality is great, I just need to learn to pack less and better!

    Fanny Pack!!

    if your looking for that minimal approach this just might be your solution, that h20 bladder adds a bit of wight so on the ruff stuff it trys to move around but if its cinched up correctly its ok . It will fit with the bladder full a phone(in a case), tube,key/fob, two co2s, inflation divice, two snacks/bars and my money/ id cards.
