Rated 5 out of 5 by emperorming78 Just the ticket.
First pack I have owned. I did a lot of checking on reviews and opinions about the Camelbak VS Osprey argument and I have to say I'm not disappointed. I'm not used to riding with stuff on my back and it's first outing was Glentress. After the first few minutes I didn't notice it at all. It is heavier than most packs but what's a few grams here or there. The quality and finish are excellent. The features are good with more than enough pockets to throw most things bar the kitchen sink. The material although not waterproof does shed the majority of water and is easily wiped clean which for Blighty is a must. The actual bladder has a bit of rigidity which means it sits in the pack and on your back comfortably. After two days hard biking no sore shoulders or back. Very impressed. Usual speedy and good CRC service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Redmerlin09 Awesome trail pack
After using camelbak for years I decided to switch and use something else and the osprey is just brilliant, it has many useful features and the reservoir is very good and easy to fill with its handle. The only thing it could do with and you can probably buy one as an extra is a cover for when it's really wet weather.

Do not look any further for a hydration pack... The raptor has and does everything... Anybody that sees mine wants it... It won't help your skills but it does not get in the way, unless you take a fall and I consider this a basic back protector... You will feel so cool getting it ready and wearing it... It works really well... No bad points... Get it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by dotty94 awesome hydration pack
I did a lot of research before buying this backpack and after riding around with it for a couple of months now and can say this is the best hydration pack ever! it has so many nifty features; the magnetic bite valve is awesome and very useful. i love all the little separate compartments like the tool pouch and the spot for your phone and sunnies and stuff. the best thing about this backpack though is how good it feels on your back when you're riding, its like its not even there. definitely a well thought out backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pitachu Great Hydration Pack
This is really a great hydration backpack.
Really love the magnetic holder for the mouth piece to prevent the
tube from slapping up and down into my face when riding.
Fits my contour perfectly and most of the time, I forgot I am wearing
the pack until I need a drink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 87openyoureyes Great Bag!
I was very nervous about spending this much money on a bag, it had its first use this weekend and i couldn't be more impressed.
I ordered both the raptor 10 and the raptor 14 from chain reaction, i definitely feel the 14 doesn't take up any more room but offers you more flexibility for taking an extra layer.
I used the bag to clim Helvellyn and striding edge, lots of scrambling and moving at a fast joggin pace on the flats. The bag did everything i wanted!
Buy This Bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gelopski Fantastic backpack!!
Perfect size backpack for packing the essential items. I use this for all mtb rides plus use for commuting (so it can still hold a decent amount of stuff).
The hydration pack is very easy to fill up and is comfortable when carrying.
The added roll out tool section is very handy

I got Raptor 14 and it is awesome backpack. Its becoming part of your body as you wear it. Very comfortable and well designed. You can put in it all stuff you need for riding: pump, extra tube, tools, chain, lube, first aid and it still be comfortable to ride on a bike. Hydration system is also perfect. I ordered Osprey Raven 10 for my girlfriend.
