    Strengths:    Durability, comfort, versatility

    Weaknesses:    Not for every day rides

    Bottom Line:   
    After 5 years, this pack has proven itself to be one of the best pieces of equiptment I have ever purchased. I have used the keg literally every day for the past half decade. Used commuting to school loaded down with more books than I care to think about. Used it traveling across the country while it is manhandled by baggage handlers, conveyers, and every type of scanning device known to man. Used it on epic ride/camp trips, loaded down with more weight than my back can support. Used it to carry books, tools, parts, clothes, tents, sleeping bags, food, electronics (sometimes all at once) through the sun, rain, and snow.
    No matter what the conditions, no matter what the use, I have always made it to my destination with the contents of my keg completely dry.
    The bag has now been replaced by a newer fancier Kelty, thanks to a zipper that has finally given up ghost and a restless owner. The bag is still used, excluding the broken zippered pocket. The stiching still holds tight, the bag holds its form even though its days of cross country travels are over.

    This is a day pack, so do not expect a small hydration pack made for a two hour ride. Since Hydrapak no longer makes this model, this review is more of a thank you. A thank you to the company and a thanks to my bag, for never letting me down, never failing, even as you rest against the wall.

    Thank you Hydrapak for making such a great product.

    Strengths:    HUGE

    Weaknesses:    HUGE

    Bottom Line:   
    This is an enormous pack. It keeps the weight centered on your back, so you can ride stuff that isnt supertechnical, but its really just enormous. More space than any mere mortal could even need. A steal at $44.98, but plumb too big for anything under a multiday epic.

    Strengths:    Storage Size, Comfort, Lots of Hidden Pockets, Looks like the Oakley Pack, Carry Shoes in a special section

    Weaknesses:    Might be too big for some.

    Bottom Line:   
    Great Pack! I use this for backpacking, riding and around the-town showing off. It carries a LOT of stuff. I love the chest strap, and the waist strap is padded very very well. It acutally supports your back! You can also carry shoes in a special compartment they provide. Also, it has a rain cover hidden on the top pocket which keeps the Keg from getting wet. Its a great pack! It was definitely a steal for this price. I don't know the long term durability of this pack yet, but will probably be a thumbs up. Yea, yea!
