Why We Like The Epic 8 Hydration Backpack

All-day gravel epics or big ride on the mountain bike on new terrain have us wearing the USWE Epic 8 Hydration Backpack. This quality, functional, and surprisingly spacious backpack includes 3L of water storage along with its overall capacity. We're using this pack to easily stuff in c02's, bacon strips, and even a light change of clothes to get ready for the long haul. The NDM 1.2 provides a 4-point harness to keep the pack in place and bounce-free while we ride.


  • Mid-sized bag for long trail epics
  • Strong material resists tears and abrasion
  • 3L water capacity keeps us out for long rides
  • Plenty of storage for multi-tools, tubes, and food

Stays in place but too small

I've used it several times

Get the 12L! The harness is great and very comfortable. The pictures on the website are misleading... you can fit all that stuff in the pack but only without the bladder! A full bladder and very little else fits in this pack. Wish I had purchased the larger version but I trusted the pictures and figured that was about what I carried. But once the bladder is even half full of water, the pack loses tons of storage. *Doesn't have the refinement of Camelbak packs either. Little things... designated spot for keys, extra zippers inside, soft cellphone storage. The concept is great. Just size up unless you want a small race bag or short ride bag.
