Strengths:    Enough room to also carry gear, snacks, layers, etc! Good for the all around rider that wants to be prepared on the trail.

Weaknesses:    The bite valve it came with was a straight one, I ended up buying a 90-degree one to make it easier to use

Bottom Line:   
I bought this cause it was on sale and seemed like a good deal. I couldn't be happier actually now that I've had it a while. It hold 100oz which is more than enough for what I need now, but it's nice to know it can likely be used for a 3hr+ day of riding. It has lots of compartments and pockets so you can organize your tools, snacks, tubes, etc. It's fairly compact for it's given size too. It's easily adjustable to fit any size as well and easy to expand when you want to carry more things like jackets or layers. Ideal for the rider that wants to be prepared for most things on the trail, probably bulky and heavy for those of you who are competitive and what not. Overall, I'd give it a thumbs up!

Strengths:    I'm tall (6'5"), so was stoked to find a pack with a good strap and harness configuration that would allow me to seat the weight correctly. The pack hugs your back just right, has good amount of space, and straps are effective at cinching it down when not full of gear or a full 3 liters of water. Red and black camo coloring's pretty cool too.

Weaknesses:    The weather strip on the top pocket is kind of lame; already withering. Never been a fan of Camelbak tubing/moutpiece either, but that's just nit-picking.

Bottom Line:   
For the prices I paid, I couldn't be happier. Was the last upgrade after bike and kit, so completed the deal. Super solid product, overall a winner.

Strengths:    comfie with room for FF helmet carrying, knee shincombo, room for some food, tube, and pump. looks cool. adjustable.

Weaknesses:    small.

Bottom Line:   
good for a 3 hour ride. carries my FF helmet and knee shin combo for the ride up and the ride out. after MAKING my hiking pack work, its nice to have a pack set up for MTBing that is intended to hold my armor. The climb up DEMO the pack is fine. after putting on my helmet and knee shin the pack feels like its not there. I can see it getting a little tight with 3Leters of water. IF you plan on a single day ride with minimal tools, basic gear, and some simple snacks this pack is for you. If you need more room for more tools get "the DON" as it has more cargo room.

Strengths:    Perfect size, comfortable (when properly set) and catchey colors.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
This pack is a good size, not too big, not too small. It carrys everything I need and the organized internal pockets is great.

One thing, you have to be sure that you get the straps setup properly so that it is not sitting too high. If it sits too high, you might find it not so comfortable. This might seem intuitive, but really experiment with the strap placements and lengths to get it just right (kinda like helmet straps). You'll be glad you did.
