where is the cheapest place to get one from?

Merlin are doing it in Blue for £50 - but really wanted Black - but thats £70 cheapest I have seen.

Anyone know where I can get a black one for £50ish?

If not will just get it in blue :)

    Haha was just about to place the order then an email popped up and it was to tell me you posted a message to say get the blue....

    I got the diarrhoea coloured "Coyote" because i couldnt justify the extra cost for the other colours. I'm a bit peeved that Merlin then started doing blue ones, I would have preferred those!

    In short, stop being a girl and get the blue!

    In the end I decided against it!

    I am gonna keep my old Mule, and just get a new bladder.

    I can use a different (non-cycle-specific) rucksack if I need to carry more gear (2+ day cycling trips etc)
  • I got the blue HAWG from Merlin for Christmas. Used it 4 or 5 times now. Previously I had a halfords hydration pack that could only hold a few tools and a spare top at most- it did it's job but I broke the buckles so had to tie it on :oops:
    I thought the Hawg would feel a lot heavier due to all the extra space, but it's so comfortable the extra weight you can put into it sits well on your back / shoulders, and when empty it's not much heavier thanthe halfords one!

    I highly recommend it! I'm looking forward to some longer summer runs when the 3l capacity will come in handy.
