Hydrapak Morro Review

Hydration Pro Reviews





Bottomline
I really loved the Morro. It was incredibly comfortable, has a large array of features, that are immensely useful and highly functional. I especially liked the innovations that they brought forth with the new bite valve, the Quantum Clip and the top carrying strap. The pack was light, conforms amazingly well to your torso, and just has a great fit and function.

The main compartment is monstrous and very useful, especially due to the large clamshell zippered opening, which made loading and unloading a breeze. It really needs a strap of some sort to go across the middle to tie on stuff, but that is a small nitpick of an issue.

Hydrapak has the best hydration reservoir bag in the business, period. This reversible bladder, greatly aids in cleaning, drying and filling, and is a simple engineering idea that is a marvel to use.

Strengths
-Oodles of storage pockets
-Surge Valve
-Quantum Clip
-Bladder system
-Top handle

Weaknesses
-Bladder hanging clip is annoying
-Reservoir compartment zipper is too short
-Lack of helmet net
-Lack of front top straps or bungees

Overall Rating: 5 Flamin’ Chili Peppers
