Strength:

3L of water, lots of pockets, zippers snap into each other for secure storage, nice bladder, well ventilated.

Weakness:

Feels a bit heavy once loaded before you put it on.

So far I'm really liking this pack. Once it's filled up, it feels heavy, but after putting it on & riding I almost forget the pack is there. Water valve is a nice setup & it comes with a dirt protector.

Strength:

mesh back keeps you cooler, buckle closures don't wear out, zippers still work

Weakness:

fewer compartments than a Camelbak, not a problem for me

If you ride where it's hot or sweat this will keep you cooler. Comfort assured. Deuter bladders are excellent, too and don't taste like more popular ones.
Might not like it if you have lots of stuff in every pocket.

Strength:

The smallest, lightest pack with a "trampoline" style aircomfort system keeps the pack off your back and allows for air circulation

Weakness:

You really don't need the waist belt, bungee cords or extra pockets; but to remove them requires cutting.

cool minimal hydration pack
The "trampoline" style aircomfort system keeps the pack off your back and allows for air circulation far surpassing any mesh foam. The size is just right for a day of riding. If you are riding anytime the temperature is above 70 degrees F this is really appreciated. This is the smallest trampoline-style hydration pack I have been able to find. I actually removed the helmet holder since I did not like the bungees bouncing around and it has plenty of other pockets. This pack is still pretty expensive since it is a relatively new model and produced in Germany

Vaude Splash 15 is another small trampoline-style hydration pack. It is a little bigger so it is not as streamlined. It comes with some extras like a rain cover that you really don't need in a pack so small that you really don't carry anything.
