    Strengths:    Padded shoulders, padded back. Reversible reservoir makes cleaning so easy! Tube can be detached from reservoir in a second. Good space for gear. Top or bottom tube routing.

    Weaknesses:    So far so good.

    Bottom Line:   
    Plenty of fluid, plenty of space, lightweight, comfortable and durable. Adds a few little features here and there that just make the pack great.

    Strengths:    Well-made, comfortable, versatile.

    Weaknesses:    None so far.

    Bottom Line:   
    I wanted a pack that wouldn't be too bulky for minimalist rides, yet big enough for multi-day backcounty stuff. Enter, the Glacier. It holds plenty of water and can unzip to double it's capacity. Once I managed to fit six beers, an eight-pack of burger buns, box of veggie burgers, in addition to my bike tools, pump and extra tube...(Yes, the buns got slightly squished, but not badly.) Also, after 6 months or so, the bladder has no discernible odor. The mouthpiece did start becoming hard to open with just my teeth, I would have to stop and use both hands. But a tiny drop of olive oil made it buttery-smooth again...
