Strengths:    Comfortable and secure, even on narrow shoulders. Plenty of space - there's enough room for another 1L resevoir if need be. Main pocket is divided into smaller compartments to organise tools. Bright red on the inside - easy to find what you need. Cheaper than a lot of other of hydration packs the same size.

Weaknesses:    None yet. Durability still untested.

Bottom Line:   
Comfortably carries everything I need for 3-5 hours in the saddle.

Strengths:    Storage space is exceptional enough for a day in the woods/trails. Plenty of separate compartments including one for my sirius radio. Doesn't feel bulky when riding and is aesthetically pleasing as the reviewer below stated.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I believe this item is being discontinued so if you can find it BUY it. This pack fits well and conforms to my back to make it very comfortable when riding (no bouncing or shifting). Again, this is a must have pack for those day trippers or those who want a little bit more than the standard hydration pack which can only carry a set of keys. Since the price is slightly more than those standard hydration packs you do get the most pack for your money.

Date Reviewed: October 26, 2010

Strengths:    Storage space, can carry full face or XC helmet, carries pads and looks cool, Bite valve works better than i expected.

Weaknesses:    My water pouch had discoloration after first use but no biggie. Maybe a little pricey.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this after reading limited reviews and glad i did. It is good looking and very functional. Has alot of storage space and a few smaller outer pouches for storage. Holds me Fox Flux helmet really nicely and can hold my full face too. I almost bought the Portage but felt it was too big and the Lo Pro was too small, the Oasis has plenty of room for basics and a little extra. Has ability to hold knee/shin guards. Would recommend to anyone.

Strengths:    This is the newer pack with the Hydrapack Bladder and Tip.
Not too big and not too small.
Has many compartments.
Easy to clean Bladder.
Looks good (like most Fox stuff)
Construction seems sturdy.
Has some ventilation for you back.
Holds 2 liters of fluid.


Weaknesses:    None to speak of really.
Holds 2 liters of fluid (Bad if on a long bike ride)


Bottom Line:   
Very nice product with a slightly lower price than some other similar packs. The pack fits great on my back with plenty of adjustment in all of the straps. I really like how it has the chest strap as well as the abdomen strap. It does a great job of staying secure against my back and does not move around when riding. The bladder is real nice as you can turn it inside-out to clean it, so no special cleaning stuff is needed. It does not really have much of a taste to it, but generally I add Gatoraid powder anyway to my water.
The pack itself has many compartment to hold various things needed for a trail ride, such as tools, keys, phone, mp3 player, spare tubes, etc. Color is mostly black, but it goes well with my Charcoal colored bike and helmet.

Strengths:    Light weight, comfortable padding in all the right places, durable material.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I had the same problem with my water tasting like plastic for the first few rides but after my 5th ride it was fine. I'm 5'11" and 220 and this pack fits me like a glove with strap to spare. I liked this pack because it was still small and my camelbak couldn't fit anything extra in it and this one has pockets which made it more practical for me without carrying a big back pack with me. Well done FOX!!

Date Reviewed: January 9, 2010

Strengths:    The compartments are good, it looks good, and the material is nice.

Weaknesses:    Size. I am 5'6" and weigh 135lbs. This pack was certainly designed for larger riders. Thera are no keepers for loose straps.

Bottom Line:   
I like the bag. But it is made for larger riders. I'm sure that one of my friends will like it when I trade it for beer at one of the trail heads.

Looks like I'm going back to camelbak.

Submitted by Kris Newell a Weekend Warrior from Ca

Date Reviewed: May 24, 2007

Strengths:    Adjustability and storage options, looks great. Cooler than
any Camelback brand.


Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I haven't had the leakage problems. Maybe
fox updated the bite valve. Great pack, room for
bottles, food, big ol sandwich, keys, wallet, tools, tubes, anything. Still small when unloaded.
extra clip on pocket for an ipod or cell phone, if you even
get service in the backwoods.
Ajustable tension panel on the back so you can load a helmet or jacket and keep it tight. No plastic taste
from the bladder if washed regularly. It gets funky if you
leave water in it for a few days. Water stays cold too.
Overall, this is a great small to medium sized pack capable of many storage options, and I am very satisfied.

Strengths:    Strong, looks good, water resistant, comfortable to wear, heaps of padding where it's needed.

Weaknesses:    The bladder, it totally sucks!!! Water taste like liquid plastic. THe valve drips everywhere (although this maybe a plus on a hot day)

Bottom Line:   
The bag is excellent, it serves it's purpose, has plenty enough room for snacks/tools. If you are getting one, make sure you change the bladder to some sillicon type.

Date Reviewed: April 1, 2004

Strengths:    Compact unit that looks good. Has enough storage for most of the stuff you want to carry on a 2-3 hour ride. Considered the Camelbak Mule or Blowfish but since I was picking up Fox shorts and gloves thought I would just keep with their products

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
If you want something different give the Fox backback a shot.

Date Reviewed: February 2, 2004

Strengths:    Killer good looks, adjustable sternum strap, lots of pockets, key clips and removeble waist strap.

Weaknesses:    Bladder

Bottom Line:   
This is a good looking comfortable pack but the bladder has a cheap plastic feel with a bite valve that just slides off. I switched to a camelback bladder and ergo lock valve and now it doesn't drip all over the damn place. I also have an extra bladder to use for beer when I'm not riding.
