Hi All

Anyone using one of the above, looking for a new pack for longer and winter rides, don't want to carry the kitchen sink, basic tools, tube , pump, water, some flapjack and some where to stash a jacket, so nothing to big, if you have one what's it like and how much smaller is the 10, or can you recommend anything else ?

  • Buy it.

    I bought one three months ago. Great piece of kit. It is really well made and thought out. Dont bother with the 10l one. For a short ride just use the compression straps to compress it down a bit. I fill mine up quite well for normal rides. I wouldn't want smaller than 14 l personally. Bar my bike and merino wool baselayer it's my best piece of kit.

    Thanks for the advise :D
