Ergon BC2 Water Carrier Pro Review

The Ergon BC2 is one of the most interesting packs, that I have ever used, and it’s got some highly innovative and functional features. The foremost is their unique frame system. It uses their flexible Profax PP frame, which transfers 80% of the pack’s load onto the hips, and is combined with the Flink ball joint (ball and socket), which allows the shoulder harness to freely pivot.

Strengths:    Ergonomics! Ofcourse :)
Because 80% of the weight is on your hips you'r back and shoulders are really less stressed.
Built-in raincover, nice details.

Weaknesses:    Price...
Some compartments could be a bit more practical, but they work when you get used to them.

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the BD2 pack.
I bought it because I often have some lower back problems when mountainbiking. Although these are not caused by wearing a backpack the Ergon really works for me. It takes a lot longer before my back gives me problems, and even then it's less painfull then with the other backpacks I used.
So even if the Ergon has some minor weaknesses (like any pack) I'm very satisfied with it.

The first time you use it it feels different from other packs. The upper part moves with your back when you move, the lower part is strapped to the hips. But after 10 miles you're used to it. After that it's the best pack from an ergonomical point of view, which for me is the most important thing (ofcourse you should be able to take your gear and some water too ;-))

Five chili's for the pack, four for value because it's quite expensive.

Strengths:    It has an integral raincover and its fairly large.

Weaknesses:    Over-engineered, gimmecky trash. Hard to fit, confining, link is very weak and fragile (pack held on by one thin screw). pack moves so never fits correctly, is awkward riding, dides way away from back so sticks way out, hard to use and fit, hard to reach items (one vertical zipper) pockets are strange shapes, small and worthless. Screw pokes into bladder so wears a hole!

Bottom Line:   
Expensive, difficult to use, awkward riding over-engeneered euro trash pack.
It does nothing it claims to and is a total joke of a pack!
