General comments: Have used this mountain biking a few times. The fit is good, basic waist strap and stretchy chest strap keep the pack in place over the worst terrain. Shoulder straps are lightly padded but still comfortable. Double compression straps keep everything held down tightly. Three outer mesh pockets and a bungee cord system give you plenty of quick storage options for the odd mars bar or lightweight waterproof.
The bladder is a good size and has its own zippered section. Access holes for the tube on either side. Bite valve sytem seems to work well, no dribling water when you are not using it and the magnetic fastening to chest strap is great. Keeps it right where you need it to grab without looking and almost fastens itself away when you are finished drinking.
Pros: Good size to fit the basics for a days mountain biking. Not big enough to fit all the rubbish you don't need but seem to carry when the space is available.
