Pros Comfortable waist belt, smart design, good ventilation, can carry water in bladder or bottlesAffordable, comfortable, excellent for hot lapsLoads of storage, easy hose routing, comfortableWell-rounded performance, compact, attractive priceLarger storage capacity, subtle styling
Cons Expensive, limited gear storage capacityToo small for big days in the saddle, limited water carrying abilitiesA little bulky, busy designNever stands out from competition, polarizing stylingOdd fit, expensive, doesn't feel like it was designed for mountain biking
Bottom Line A quality hip pack that goes above and beyond in almost every area.A small hip pack that delivers a great fit that is sensible for those hot-laps.A dialed hip pack that boasts plenty of storage space and a smart design.A solid and comfortable waist pack best suited for short to moderate length rides.A sensible hip pack that gets the job done but offers a poor fit and some odd design features.
