Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great little unit
I've had this 3 litre pack since early this year in the then hot Aussie summer, until now in the cooler conditions. I've raced a couple of races with it on my back, and done numerous long and short rides, and I have to say I'm happy with it. The side pockets allow me to carry Gels, or bars, there's space for a first aid kit, tools and tube in the smallish rear pocket. If you want to carry a jacket it sort of has to go under the straps, as the rear pocket is pretty small.
Great unit if you don't have to carry heaps of stuff. Easy to clean, and fill etc.
It sits well on the back and I have never been bothered by it.
I would give it 5 stars if the rear pocket was a fraction longer so that my pump would fit in there...
