Just ordered the black camo one. Seems very good price for size of pack considering included hydration pack. Will update on quality/use once received if anyone wants to know.

can you clean out the bladder/hydration system? i've never used one of these before

What's a "Fleece Lined Google Pocket "?

its a fleece lined pocket for goggles (so the soft lenses dont scratch) ...

Can anyone explain what this is, out of curiousity? With words like "bladder" and a visible tube, I'm having visions of Kevin Costner's Waterworld where he urinates into a plant containing contraption or something and it produces drinkable water, but I realise that's way too silly.

nice

good price with the 15L daysack capacity

Yes, normally they are removable and you can get cleaning kits from sports shops, e.g Sports Direct had them for about 4 quid. If you only use it for water it should keep fairly well.

A pretty heavy duty pouch for storing water which goes in the pack, with a drinking tube coming from it. Allows you to drink on the move instead of stopping, taking the pack off, opening it, finding your classic waterbottle, drinking from that, and putting it all back.

Or use the side pocket for a bottle of water and reach around for it.

I find that these canteens in principle are great but a bottle of water is just more convenient, especially when sharing drinks. But my hiking is in the hills - I'm rarely scrabbling or climbing where I can't reach for water. Or I'm in a place where I can't wait for hydration.

The bag is a good price though - I know nothing of the brand but I've used Camalbak which I can't fault. But good ol'small bottles of water in a normal rucksack just work out to be so much more convenient for me.

My 2p anyway - don't hate.

Doh! I was stumped by that, though in my defence it was late I guess someone's spell checker got overenthusiastic when they wrote the description.

"don't hate"? What a strange thing to say. Everyone's entitled to their opinion. Good point about being easier to hand around a bottle if sharing, otherwise though hydration packs are much better, even if you've got a side pocket. A main cause of fatigue during long exercise is dehydration. Drink a little amount, often, is the best way to combat this and that's what hydration packs are made for. Typically you find people drink a lot less often, and when they do, swig loads with a normal waterbottle just because it's not as quick and easy to access. Each to their own though.

This arrived today (surprised as it was cheapest delivery ) & it's pretty solid quality. A nice amount of pockets & fairly light. Much better than the £11 tesco one I'd been using up to now & lots of space to carry gear.
