The Mini-H.A.W.G. is a hydration pack that works well for mountain bikers or active kids in the outdoors. Kid-brother to the popular H.A.W.G. this pack lets grommets carry their own gear, snacks, and water for 1 to 2 hours out.

Strengths: Sturdy comfortable pack that is well designed and easy to use. Reservoir is easy to keep clean. Backpack will fit a larger reservoir (I load a 70 oz.) All day comfortable for long rides.
Weaknesses: Helmet carrier does not fit my Giro E2 well due to larger size of the MTB helmet. Reservoir could be bigger (50oz). No pocket on the front straps for easy access etc.
All around great and roomy pack. Very well manufactured and sturdy. Water reservoir is easy to clean although a little small for an all day ride. I'd recommend getting the hanger to dry it and the valve cover. This pack is the perfect size for the tools etc I carry and has pouches for them to keep things sorted out.
