    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.

    Pros
    Plenty of space, pockets and ventilation. Will make for a great day hike pack too!

    Cons
    Pricey, limited color options

    I ride Colorado Rockies often and you need rain layer and supplies for most repairs out there. This pack is plenty big for all day riding. Keep finding pockets I didn't know existed! This thing truly allows you to put ten pounds of s@$t in a five pound bag. Love how there are 4 cinch straps to compress the whole bag down after its packed, really prevents any movement while riding

    Pros
    Pockets everywhere!
    Tool pouch
    Compression straps
    Waist belt pockets
    Padded phone / glasses storage
    Load doesn't shift while riding
    Plenty of storage for day long rides
    Well made
    Obviously designed by riders

    Cons
    Magnet a little weak
    No cover for bite valve

    Highly recommended for epic backcountry and cold rides when extra gear needed. Also great for shorter rides as it compresses nicely.

    Pros
    Great size for 2 hr rides
    Highly compressible for shorter rides
    You'll never want for more pockets and places to stash stuff
    Tool organizer that rolls up into pack and detaches if needed
    Hip belt pockets for on-the-bike access
    Bladder has "spine" to prevent sag when volume depletes
    Magnetic bite valve
    Helmet clip device

    Cons
    Hard to come up with any

    Pros
    This is defiantly a prices hydration pack but it is worth every penny. The features are some much we'll thought out that a camelback. If you ride four days a week like I do you will appreciate the little features of the pack.

    Cons
    Just like with most hydration packs your back get insanely hot and sweaty. You will just have to get used to it because it will happen even on short hour rides. Still probably the best pack out there.

    IMO if you don't mind carrying a few extra ounces this is the best hydration pack on the market. I would however recommend getting the Osprey Hydraulics Reservoir LT 2.5L. I hope they add the quick connect to the hydra form bladders, but till then the LT is it and the quick connect is amazing. Makes it infinitely easier to remove the bladder to fill it.

    Pros
    Super Breathable, confortable, well compartmentalized, good size.

    Cons
    Little heavy compared to a camel bak mule.

    This thing is great, plenty of storage and a nice big bladder. My only gripe would be the magnet that holds the mouth piece on is kind of weak, not that big of a deal though. 5/5

    Pros
    3 liter, comfy, plenty of storage, filling the bladder is cake

    Cons
    weak magnet

    For anyone that rides out to the trail and needs to keep enough stuff with them in case of trouble. Probably don't need such a big pack if you drive to the trail head.

    Pros
    Has a compartment for everything. It's the perfect size for long rides. I love the magnetic nozzle clip it's very easy to use.

    Cons
    None

    Great design, fit, and looks. Have logged many road and MT rides with this pack and it does not let me down. Customer service is great.

    Cons
    A little on the heavy side. I don't care, but some might.

    Pros
    This is good as a back pack. I find the hydration bladder and hose simply annoying. Update: My replacement bladder leaks as well. Soaks my back on rides.

    Cons
    first one I got had a leaking bladder. The cap wouldn't seal properly. I replaced it and the second one worked. Then I read the warning label: that magnet they warn you about that stops pacemakers. . . it also erases phones and mp3 players. I thought maybe there's an alternate way to store the hose and get rid of the magnet. There's not. Water tastes like plastic. The hose pops off the magnetic as one would expect. It looks like you're going scuba diving.

    This was recommended to me by the LBS. Kudos to the college kid for selling me a great product.

    Pros
    Plenty of straps/bungees to keep things tight. There is a compartment for everything. I LOVE the magnetic valve holder.

    Much better than MULE, more features and fits better.

    Pros
    Reservoir is easy to remove and install, fits tight on your back, lots of cinch downs to make it smaller.

    Cons
    No large gulps, only medium sips, hard to dry out reservoir.

    The reinforced reservoir makes filling simple.The reservoir can be removed and filled without needing to empty everything else. Overall the pack is comfortable and has good ventalation on hot days. Well Constructed. Definately recommend this hydration pack.

    Pros
    Great features. Reservoir is easy to refill. Good ventalation. Tons of stroage for daylong rides.

    Cons
    I have owned the pack for about 1 year and wis I bought one sooner!

    I want this bag bad. i own the Camelback MULE and love it, but a buddy of mine has this one and i looked at it today at REI again and love the room and compartments for additional gear, pumps, tools, tubes, water bottles, IPOD, etc. the rigid hydration pack is really nice when your bag is packed and space gets tight, although with the space in this bad boy, I cnat see that happening unless your planning an overnightstay somewhere.

    Pros
    large storage space without the large bag feel on your back. helmet hook. rigid reservoir. very nice looking and built well. nice ventilation at the back. competative cost to other bags, but offers more.

    Cons
    none at this point

    I have recommended this brand and specific pack to everyone I know. In my opinion, its the best pack for the money.
    I love the Hydroform resorvior. That is probably my favorite feature. I love the clip to hold my helmet, outer pocket for a poncho or a spare towel, and the magnet to hold the bite valve. Those would be my favorite features. The storage room is amazing and more than likely more than you need. I can fill the second pocket with snacks and two extra water bottles. I carry spare tubes, tools, keys, and a camera in the smaller first pocket and still have room for more stuff. Then there is a smaller pocket for my phone and wallet at the very top of the pack.

    Pros
    Cost. Ease of resorvior. Design.

    Cons
    None so far and I have been on numerous rides, at least 100 miles.

    After checking out the Hydrapak and The Camelbak lines I ended up buying the Osprey Raptor 14. I've only been out with it once so far and I wasn't disappointed. It fits(feels) great, holds a lot of gear, and has the 3L reservoir. The reservoir has a rigid plate made into it that makes removing and inserting it into the pack a snap, plus its contoured to your back and keeps the reservoir from barreling out against your back. Very comfortable and the ventilation was excellent, even on a 95 degree day. I would highly recommend this pack to anyone.

    Pros
    The ease of the 3L Hyraforms reservoir removal, fill, and replacement into its own dedicated compartment. The adjust-ability and fit is excellent. Plenty of storage room. Good ventilation.

    Cons
    None so far.
