Spine VPD Air 13L Backpack

Every trail ride is a bit different, with some drawing ear-to-ear grins and epic stories, while others leave you a bruised, painful mess after a brutal fall over rugged terrain. Give yourself added peace of mind from the unexpected spills that happen on trail outings with the low-profile, unobtrusive back protection of the POC Spine VPD Air 13 Backpack. Seeing it occupies the lowest rung of POC's VPD Protection series, the Spine VPD Air 13 Backpack provides relief from everyday spills on the trail without the restrictive feel of burlier pads.

This trail-riding pack features a low-profile back protector that's certified to EN 1621-2 level 1 standards, which is a European certification that ensures protection from forces under 9 kN (kilo-newtons). Although not as protective as rigid, downhill-worthy pads, this certification standard means you'll be protected from the regular falls that happen when you're pushing your skills on technical trails.

Besides its protective properties, the Spine VPD Air 13 Backpack features storage for a three-liter hydration reservoir, helmet attachment for standard lids and full-face options, as well as dedicated storage for tools and smartphones. Breathable mesh straps bolster support while facilitating ventilation, so you can pedal comfortably for long distances without slogging in sweat.

Finally I have found a backpack that is comfortable and practical for mountain biking! The POC 13 liter has enough space for a day's worth of gear and supplies. It does not move around or chafe. And the integrated spine protector gives an added measure of protection. I really like this product and recommend it without hesitation. I may also purchase the larger POC should I decide to do some extra long days and need more storage. Even though this pack was pricier than ones I have used in the past, the quality and design are well worth it.

POC Spine VPD Air 13L Backpack

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

I purchased this to use while MTB and love it. It fits comfortably on my back while riding and holds enough water to get me through longer rides. Plus plenty of pockets to carry all the gear/supplies that you need.
