Plenty of space, pockets and ventilation. Will make for a great day hike pack too!
Pricey, limited color options
This is a great riding pack. It is narrow and compresses well. The magnetic bite valve holder is pure genius and works well. Pockets, layout and the tool kit pouch are awesome. Ventilation is better than most and the pack doesn't move around when you're hustling over rough terrain. In fact, you almost forget it's on you back until you need some of its contents.
The Raptor 14 is available in blue, black and red. It would be nice to have some earth tone color choices too. This baby is awesome, but it is a bit pricey at $140. By linking from a discount links site to Amazon, I was able to cheat their algorithms and pick the "bait" color that was $105. Other than some similar stroke of good fortune, good luck finding one at a discount.
