Heavy-duty fun.

The Duthie A.M. 15.0 is the largest back in the Platypus collection, and it’s equipped to handle full days on the mountain so you never have to worry about leaving any gear behind. A roomy main compartment pocket easily stores your rain jacket, snacks, spare parts, and sunscreen, and the three-liter reservoir in the hydration sleeve makes sure you never get dehydrated on the trail. Even if the sun beats down on you, the ventilated FloatAir suspension helps provide airflow to your back while the fleece-lined eyewear pocket safely holds your sunglasses or goggles when you need some extra protection from the rays. The Duthie also features a carrying system for a full-face helmet and pads, pump sleeves, magnetic hose retention, rain cover, and several pockets to keep you organized and prepared for any flat tires or photo-worthy spots.

  • Hydration sleeve, magnetic hose retention

Awesome Pack!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my boyfriends review of this item:

This pack is very well thought out. The pockets, mesh organizers, and overall architecture of the pack is on-point. You can fit a lot of stuff in there without it becoming too awkward. If you’re into the all day adventures this 15L is probably the right fit, if you’re in the max ~2hr bike ride camp I’d go with the 10.

I’ve used it chiefly for mountain bike riding, where it shines. It easily cinches down for a 40 min spin, or takes the food, rain jacket, and layers for an all day ride. While crushing the biking, it has remained comfortable on some long runs (8mi), and a number of long hikes (<20mi). It stays nice and cool with the mesh/open back, and the snack pouches on the hip belt are handy.

The shape of the pack lends itself to mountain biking, as it is more curved and conforms to the curve of the back while on the bike. Initially I had some sores/hot spots after my first long hike with a pretty full pack, but I later found I was riding the pack too low on my back. After adjusting the straps for a higher posture, the pack was much more comfortable for hiking and running.

I really like how the Big Zip bladder is integrated into the pack. The snap features do a good job orienting the bladder and they are surprisingly easy to manipulate when removing the bladder.

I really like how light the pack is by itself, but that also comes into play as a concern for its longevity. I’ve used it extensively for 4.5mo, and so far so good — I hope it keeps up, it's my new favorite pack.
