Vertical Plus 10L Hydration Pack

Vertical Plus 10L Hydration Pack

Giving the trail a thrashing while your gear is flopping around on your back like a family of wild ferrets doesn't add much joy to the flow session you set out to enjoy. With single day riding and exploring in mind, the USWE Vertical 10L Hydration Pack supplies just enough stash space for essential gear like clothing, snacks, and first aid kits, but not so much that the contents throw off balance at every root garden. Holding contents closer to you, the Vertical's NDM Race Harness hugs the torso with comfortable mesh straps that add breathability for charging hard down the single track under blue, summer skies.

While loaded with features, the Vertical is not a mixed bag, as the internal macro and micro pockets provide expert organization opportunities to help you look like a pro when bailing out the friend who misplaced their multi-tool. A two-liter Hydrapak Elite hydration bladder slots into a separate, compressive sleeve — for extra control — and the tubing connects to the Plug-N-Play coupling for quick operation between the switchbacks.

USWE sets you up for on-foot adventures as well with trekking pole attachments. And should your quest send you off the beaten path and into the evening, reflective elements aid visibility and LED-light attachments hold your blinkers and lighting gear to brighten your way.

The Vertical fits torsos 84-110cm in circumference.

Constant adventure companion.

I've put it through the wringer

I've used this running, hiking, kayaking, and on days at rugby tournaments. Incredibly comfortable strap system. Plenty of storage. Extremely easy to clean reservoir. Nothing to dislike here.

Incredible suspension system!

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

Got this for my wife to use as a hydration and sundries pack while bushwacking for the native Scrubjay in Ocala National Forest here in Florida. You can dial in the suspension to fit practically anyone and there is still elasticity in the straps, so if you are breathing heavily or contort your body, the suspension gives with you. I weigh 100lbs more than my wife and I tried it on too, after adjusting the straps; and also found it uber-comfortable. I'll use it for light mountain biking and easy multi pitch climbing where I want to change into approach shoes at the top. Whether you are an avid mountain biker or a "weekend warrior" like us, I think you would find the fit of this pack unlike any other, meaning although it absolutely does not move on your back, it is absolutely comfortable across your rib cage and chest. Oh, and there's a GoPro mount that works with this pack; which is pretty cool if you ask me! This is most certainly NOT the last USWE product I'll be buying; I'm shortly going to order an Explorer 26!
