Hydration Pro Reviews



Cinch Straps
The pack has 2 sets of dual side cinches, that do a great job of balancing the load depending on the current capacity that you are carrying. I do wish that there was some sort of strap that went across the middle front of the pack, so that you could carry a jacket or anything else on the outside? I am not exactly sure what the small nylon strap that goes across the lower pocket is for (rear night light I presume?), but it worked great for carrying my cutters that I use regularly for trail maintenance.

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.

Pockets
Like any of the medium to large packs, it has a lot of pockets. It has the usual couple of front pockets that have the typical functionality, although I wish the key clip was in the lower front pocket instead of the upper? It has two nice side pockets that are made with some elastic material, so it allows you to add larger objects than seems feasible for their size. In the inside front panel are 2 zippered pockets and a nice Velcro pocket that is perfect for a wallet.

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.
