Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonsey70 Good short ride backpack
I have a camelbak Mule NV which is a fantastic all day use backpack but found that I could do with something smaller for short trail rides. The Evoc CC had just one front zip pocket but it is enough and I can fit my phone, compressor, car key and bike tool in to this. In addition, there is enough room in the main pocket around the water bladder for a spare inner tube and some energy bars. Its very light and I hardly notice I am wearing it. More importantly for me, I specifically wanted the waist strap and the Camelbak alternative in size to this does not have this item. There is not a vent system against your back like the Mule NV and at first I thought this might give me a sweaty back but because it is a lot smaller this has not been an issue at all. I will say though that the material does not look to be as sturdy as my NV and I am not sure how good this will hold up to mud and rain when winter comes but it suits me for the summer evening rides perfectly.
