It had some swag brown tartan and a fancy font, no pink and sparkles unfortunately :(

If it was pink and sparkley you could've just said it was enduro.

Trendsetter.

I must admit, after years of Camelbaks, the Dakine closure system is a piece of piss to use. My partner has one, fill, fold, slide the zipper bit. Done. My Camelbak ones are always a pain to do up, and easy to crossthread.

Not a nomad but an Apex. 23litre and waterproof etc. Probably a little big for day missions but a sweet bag for taking the whole whanau out.... lunch etc... has been to a few BDOs etc and is still going strong with no care after 8 years.

Dredging for hate mail.

I'm the guy who always packs too much crap, has every tool I don't need for a ride, and has a puny upper body to deal with the weight of the bag.

So I bought a fanny pack.

It's small, so I can't carry too much shit. It has no shoulder straps, so I have a chance of pushing the bike around. It has a bladder, coz there are no (acceptable) bosses on my bikes.

So far, after one test ride, I like it.
Sure, it's #enduro blue, because I couldn't bring myself to spend the $20 extra for a not-on-special safety orange one.
Sure people will tell me I look like a dork wearing it, but those people are already laughing at my bar/stem colour combo and my 26" wheels.

I still have a collection of bigger bags, and if I ever get the time to head out for an all day epic again I'll reach for one.
But for now, I'm stoked to be a dad rocking the bum bag.



Maybe I should order some of those spd sandals from ze Germans...

Probably should have bought a camelbak with the LR type reservoir. Breathes almost like a fanny pack, rides better than a fanny pack, stores shit like a small pack. Anyone who hasn't ridden with one simply doesn't understand how superior they are compared to any other form of storage.

Na, it doesn't.
Under down tube spray zone is not an acceptable location for a bottle.

It's a camelbak palos. So I can imagine, but then I'd still carry too much shit.

That is a sucky bike design with the bottle cage mounts UNDER the down tube. Bummer.

I was liberated from camelbaks / backpacks about 10 years ago and will never go back. Small ride = bottle cage and stuff shoved in bike jersey pockets. Longer ride = two bottles, stuff shoved in jersey pockets and a revelate gas tank (you know the tri type bags that attach to the top tube?). Epic rides = all the above + a revelate saddle bag.

I too have a cyclists puny upper body and dont miss the weight and sweat from backpacks.

Freeeeeeeeeeeeedooooom!

Use a bottle with a lid then.
Or the complete exterior of a bottle something you like to lick?


Would like to try one of those new Skyline Camelbaks though.

It's essentially my pack (Volt 13 LR) except with the top cut off and slightly less useful hip pockets. The top is light/small and strops down anyway so they'll ride very similarly... ie amazingly. Skyline will deffo breathe better though.

Just need to figure out how much volume I actually use in my Mule.
12L vs 7L.
Should be fine for fine weather riding though.
Unlike yesterday.
