Don't leave home without it.
When you're packing up for an all-day enduro ride with your friends, you could reach for the backpack you dug out of your parents' basement a few years ago and fill it up, resigning yourself once again to riding with a sweaty back and water bottles bumping into your waist every time you hit a jump. Or, you could make the leap to something from this century with Evoc's Stage Technical 6L Bike Daypack.
Perhaps most importantly, the pack includes a 2 liter hydration bladder, so you'll be able to actually take a drink without getting off your bike to grab a bottle out of your pack. Another modern benefit of the Stage 6L is its highly ventilated back panel, which uses a mix of mesh fabrics from Evoc to usher air through the EVA-padded straps and along the full length of the back panel to keep fresh air circulating through a sweat-prone area. Inside the bag, Evoc includes space for a dedicated tool compartment, and on the outside, a lightweight attachment system that accommodates a range of off-road helmets, including full-face, without adding unnecessary bulk.
