Hydrapak Jolla Review

Cinch Straps
The pack has two sets of dual side cinches, that do a great job of balancing the load depending on the current capacity that you are carrying. When the pack was full and the straps were expanded out farther, you could also carry a jacket, armor, and other items under the straps. The top straps attached across the front onto a decent sized pouch made partially with elastic material, and the straps somewhat cinched down the pouch. You could carry a jacket or anything else on the outside pouch, and it worked great for carrying trail maintenance cutters. On the very front there was a small nylon strap for a rear night light.

Lifting Strap
An exceptional feature is the padded lifting strap, which helps you grab the pack with your entire hand. It has turned out to be a simple functional touch to the pack, which has added immense usefulness and just makes it a darn pleasure grabbing the pack to do anything with it.

About the author: Brian Mullin

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.
