Viper 3 Hydration Backpack – Wasabi Green

 

Price $80

 

I’ve personally tested Osprey products since back in their inception into cycling specific products from their hiking only product days, and no longer use Camelback due to the amazing comfort along with the Viper detailed features shown here. The Osprey Pack is a perfect size for quick rides,  is built for lightweight comfort at manageable price. Gear in the Osprey Viper can be kept safe in a zippered front panel, and two other pockets can store small items and valuables.

Shimano Unzen Enduro Racepack Review

Weight: Black/Slate blue, [4L] 605 grams
Volume: 244 cu in.

Description

 

 

Unzen is about being prepared for a day of rallying over Enduro berms. It doesn’t have to mean you’re the one weighed down with a huge backpack, as the Unzen Racepack was designed for all-mountain riding, and they gave it a place to hold everything you could posssibly need. The Unzen’s got your back when you’re out on the trails for hours so you can focus on steering your Unzen sled through sloppy terrain.

We’re pretty sure Shimano designers had unpleasant Enduro memories of wearing big, disorganized backpacks, because when they designed the Unzen, they made sure to designate a place for just about everything. A tool compartment, a dedicated space for an optional hydration bladder, and a fleece-lined accessory pocket made to protect the screens on electronics and your glasses lenses fill the inside of the pack, while on the Unzen exterior, you have a range of buckles to carry other loot. An external full-face helmet carrier makes Unzen packing easier for longer trips, while a lightweight strap in the front holds body armor or a jacket, and if you’re more of a traditionalist, you can store a water bottle in the Unzen’s dedicated front sleeve. The Unzen’s breathable back section and straps, as well as well-planned details like large zipper pulls and a removable waist strap keep your stuff accessible without limiting your ability to ride hard on big days.

Shimano Rokko Bike Hydration Pack

Shimano Rokko Bike Hydration Pack


 

 

Shimano Rokko Bike Hydration Pack

 

These days you don’t want to risk leaving the Rokko Pack at home, because you never know how the ride will play out. Thankfully Shimano has your back, in Rokko style. Calling the Rokko a hydration pack is selling it a little short, anyway, because while it does comfortably hold a reservoir and secure the hose to the shoulder strap, the main compartment is also big enough to hold a wind shell, food, and sunscreen.

 

Shimano also integrated two side pockets for bottles, a fleece-lined pocket for your phone, and an internal pouch to keep tools, tubes, patches, and organized and easy to reach.

The Rokko isn’t all about what you can fit into it, though. A helmet carrier and sunglasses clip let you stash extra gear on the outside of the pack, and the stowaway raincover pulls out of the bottom stash to keep all your gear dry when dry and dusty singletrack is transformed into a muddy river. If your day’s ride is an urban commute instead of a trail ride, the Rokko’s light clip and reflective details light up the night, so you don’t get run off the road by inattentive motorists.

Evoc FR Supertrail Bolivia 20l

Evoc FR Supertrail Bolivia // 201



 

Evoc FR Supertrail Bolivia 20l protector backpack

 

Evoc reports, searching for trails and Supertrails is a big part of what they do. Which makes sense, as no better way to test the pack out than to set off on an adventure? A favorite took them to Bolivia more than a decade ago and the mountains that sits high above the already high La Paz. Evoc was so blown away by the amazing trail they’ve been back several times and now created what will be a new Supertrail series. With the Supertrail Bolivia protector backpack, they pay homage to that first ride. Check out the new pack, a video of the ride, and even some details on the trail below.

We start off at 3803 metres above sea level. It’s cold. The air is thin, we’re almost breathless, and the landscape is just stunning. What follows makes us happy: 15.5 kilometers, with an altitude gain of 260 meters, and 1171 meters of downhill riding on a truly amazing single trail.

Bolivia-Supertrail

So that is what gets them to dedicate a pack – the limited edition FR Bolivia. The 20l Protector series backpack gets finished in an olive green pattern with a highlight of the trail’s track. Throughout the pack printed details highlight memorable elements of the trail from getting hit by a cactus to catching a bike shuttle on the back of a local farmer’s lamas.

EVOC FR-Supertrail-Bolivia enduro-trail-pack_Protector-Backpack_back-400x600

The Supertrail pack itself carries some solid tech too. It uses a TÜV-GS-certified Liteshield back protector to keep you safe whether you end up tumbling out of the Andes or simply washing out at your home bike park. The Liteshield protector is unique in remaining lightweight and flexible, and still delivering max impact absorption from +30°C down to -20°C, which may come in handy descending off of glaciers.

Evoc FR Supertrail Bolivia // 201 pack

The pack’s main body opens from either the top or the side for ease of access to everything inside. It also includes a large fold-open tool compartment for a trailside workshop, and includes an array of pockets and pouches for keeping everything organized from spare tubes to mini-tools. A separate pocket gives access to a 3l hydration system sleeve and the back protector.

Evoc FR Supertrail Bolivia // 201enduro pack

A solid padded hip belt with quick access pockets and an adjustable height set of shoulder straps with a whistle-equipped sternum strap keep the who deal securely in place. It also gets several attachment point for things like knee and elbow protectors, as well as either half-shell or full-face helmets.

 

The 20l Supertrail weighs a claimed 1300g, retails for 200€, and is available now. To check out EVOC’s latest trip to La Paz be sure to hit up the pack’s product page and click the Read the Story tab.

Dakine 15L Seeker Backpack black

Based near Mt. Hood amongst some of the best mountain bike riding in the Northwest, the Seeker comes ideal for producing awesome gear.

BACKBOTTLE Hydration For Your Jersey Pocket



 

BACKBOTTLE Jersey Hydration Bottle

Founder Brian Davis of the new startup company named BackBottle, felt he needed to find a way to bring an extra bottle without any of the discomfort or annoyance of shoving a standard one in your jersey pocket. The BackBottle is an 18oz, recyclable and BPA-free wide mouth water bottle that uses a unique shape at the bottom with a flat side to keep it from rolling and rocking back and forth in your jersey. The flat side also has thoughtful grooves so air will flow between it and your back.

BACKBOTTLE Hydration

The BackBottle isn’t the first creation from Davis designed to solve a problem. He also invented Fix It Sticks, a set of mini-tools that fit compactly into a pocket or saddle bag and can be switched between the bits you need so you’re not carrying extra stuff.

The bottle is 100% made in the USA and measures 8.5″ by 3″, just about the right size to stay snugly in a pocket while still being grippable and squeezable. It even has a “freeze below” line on the top so you don’t overfill it and have it burst the top in the freezer. They’re going on Kickstarter March 3, but are already available for pre-order at $10 or less depending on quantity on their website.

Davis mentioned a couple other uses, all of which we’ve experienced: Short races where a pack is overkill, and those days when you’re on your own at the races and don’t have anyone to feed a bottle between laps. Been there, done that.

Evoc FR Enduro Blackline Protector Pack

 

PROTECT YOUR SPINE WITH YOUR SENSE OF STYLE.

Evoc FR Enduro Blackline Hydration Pack
If it’s not enough to set the pack and bike-transport world ablaze with their revolutionary German-engineered, spine-saving Protector series of hydration packs, they had to go and up the ante with the FR Enduro BLACKLINE Protector Hydration Pack.Denoted for its distinct and sleek styling, the Evoc BLACKLINE is hardly just a styling statement — it’s built to last. Like many of their setups, this one is made primarily of an ultra-tough and water-resistant blend of PU-coated ballistic ripstop nylons, tarpaulin, and neoprene. The result is an amazingly light but bombproof pack, yet that’s only the beginning.

For breathability, the FR model uses 3D Air Mesh along its paneled backing, and even the elastic waistband is micro-permeated to not be too insulating. That same waistband also hosts a hip belt pouch to keep smaller items easily accessible. For everything else, there are non-zip Lycra side pockets, and a swing-open tool compartment, along with the large main storage area and multiple external straps to carry your helmet, pads, or other gear. The pack doesn’t include a hydration bladder, but because it’s all about keeping you going for long days on the trail, it’s ready to accept one up to three liters in size.

No description of a Protector would be complete without highlighting the technology that gives it its namesake. All Protector packs are CE-certified with their Liteshield Back Protector, a system featuring a super-light plate of temperature-insensitive materials — like an EPS core and foam damping layers — that reduce shock to the spine by up to 95% in the event of an accident. Completely replaceable in the event of being damaged, the ISP (Integrated Spine Protection) plate and its associated materials only add approximately 150 grams to each pack into which the system is integrated, making the decision just that much easier for riders who ride hard and push their limits.

Evoc CC 3L Plus 2L Bladder Hydration Pack



 

Evoc CC 3L Plus 2L Bladder Hydration black

MINIMAL CC FOR MAX SPEED.

For endurance style racing like the TransAlp or even your local 24-hour event, you’ll have a crew to keep you hydrated and fed. To that end, all you need to carry are a few tools and enough drink to get you from feed zone to feed zone. Which is where the Evoc CC comes into play that is light for speed, along with enough volume to keep you well hydrated.

The extremely handy 2015 CC 3L pack is essentially the smaller sibling of the CC 6L backpack that is shown below. In fact, it holds exactly half the amount of gear in a single side zip pocket located on the front of the pack. If you need to stash a light layer, adjustable elastic straps secure it to the outside of the CC pack for easy access.

 

Evoc CC 3L Plus 2L Bladder Hydration Pack Sky blue

 

The pack also comes with a 2-liter bladder. If you tend to drink more, or the feed zones are a bit farther apart, the versatile setup also expands to hold the bigger three liter bladder. Each bladder is designed with a full-slide top for fast and easy filling.

Osprey Rev Pack Series

 

Osprey Rev 6 flash green

THE LIGHTWEIGHT OSPREY REV’S ARE NOW HERE.

The first good look at what the new Rev Series of packs from Osprey is all about, was last fall at the annual Interbike convention, and holding to their word the lightweight packs are here now for sale as this is written up. The Rev was actually designed originally as more of a runner style pack, but was then later discovered that mountain bikers were digging the lighter weight construction and closer fit, so they implemented several design changes to make the setup more universal in application. And voila’ here’s the newest pack series to keep your heartrate at the Rev limiter..!

 

Osprey Rev 1.6 blue

One of the main changes that had to be made was to switch out from their standard Hydraulic reservoir that utilized a stiffer back panel. This was in order to make the bags more form fitting across the back.  Thankfully the newest LT reservoir still comes fully equipped with a large fill cap and a quick disconnect hose, but the bladder employs internal baffles to keep it from buckling like a sausage on your back. Additionally, they have moved the quick disconnect to the top of the bladder which should make installation a bit simpler.

These Osprey hydraulic LT Bladders are also available separately in both the 1.5L at $27.00 and the  2.5L size for $32.00.

osprey solo
 

 

In addition to the additional bottle sleeve that collapses on the right shoulder strap, the setups also feature a handy cell phone or map pocket. When not in use it snaps to the strap to keep it out of the way, and then can be unsnapped to grab a quick glance at the map or your phone. For size comparisons, that is an iPhone 4s in a Mophie battery case which was a tight fit, but it worked. The removable DigiFlip pocket is very easy to use, and one of those things we’re surprised we haven’t seen before.

The line of packs for 2014 are offered in quite a few options, the smallest and super simple Osprey Solo fanny pack at $39, and the REV 1.5 at $69, the Osprey 6 at $99, 12 at $109, 18 at $119, and 24 at $129.00, as high-speed packs that are all available now.
