Strengths:    I have had this backpack for about 2 or 3 years now and it has easily been on of the best purchases OF MY LIFE, yes that may sound dramatic but when your doing sports in Texas there is nothing you need more than easy access to water. the mesh net in the back can fit just about anything. Id like to note i noticed the 2 other reviewers talking about fitting a FF helmet, and yes it can. there are straps that allow the mesh net area to expand to hold more than you would probably like to on your back. without expansion i have fit many a six packs in there. the straps are super helpfull for when you have a full load or are doing a long ride. the bladder area is well insulated and I usually throw ice in there and keeps it cool for about 4 hours or so. another key feature is the camera/ipod/electronics pocket is waterproof! I may be a bad ass and ride across running water with rocks but i have the piece of mind to know that f i go down my sensitive electronics wont go with me.

Weaknesses:    NONE ! this things has taken some major abuse! used almost daily since ive had it for biking , hiking, disc golf, grocery shoping, beer runs, it does it all.

Bottom Line:   
In conclusion you need to buy yourself one. matter of fact I saw another one up for sale on CL and i think ill have 2.

Strengths:    Plenty of storage space for longer rides, 100 oz bladder, Camelbak bite valve (the best around), designed to be able to carry full face helmet and body armor. Separate compartment for camera/camcorder.

Weaknesses:    Needs more storage compartments inside of the larger storage areas.

Bottom Line:   
This pack is great for longer rides or if you need to pack your full face helmet and body armor. It is comfortable to wear, has a relatively small footprint for how much gear it holds, is built from tough materials that won't rip or tear, and the Omega bladder comes with a lifetime warranty. I like the separate camcorder compartment that makes it easy to take along and use my helmet cam. Overall it is a great pack that is VERY versatile. The only thing I would change would be to add more small storage compartments within the larger storage areas.

Strengths:    holds ALOT of water (3 liters), durable, removable waist strap, has alot of room for tools

Weaknesses:    tried putting my motocross full face helmet in the outer mesh compartment but didn't work out so i'm not too sure how well it can hold a full face

Bottom Line:   
This is a great pack, it holds too much water for me; the most i've ever taken is 1.5 liters. The small pocket in the front has enough room to hold all my neccessary tools (adjustable wrench, duct tape wrapped around a battery, patch kit, tire levers, my keys, some bandages and gauze. The big pocket just holds my pump and some Gatorade for a friend. I don't need to use the waist straps so i just take them off; they're held on by velcro straps. The sternum strap is plenty long for me. But I haven't really felt how the air director back panel is supposed to work, then again it's Texas!

T-East mayhem: Part Deux

I hate loooong threads so I thought I'd start a new one. Another thing to consider is the exits out on to the SVT. Most trails have very quick exits and while it is really funny to see a skid mark going out of Lower Ivan and right across the SVT into the woods on the other side, it's not very positi ...
