    I’m after a smaller hydration bag for those days where I just don’t need all the space and 3ltr bladder in my Mule!

    Ideally, I’d like something with a 1.5-2ltr bladder and enough spare space for the usual tubes, jacket, phone, keys etc

    What would you fine folk suggest?

    Yer piggin oaf! we talked about this on the Branston water park run 😀

    I told you a Camelbak Lobo was the correct answer. 😉

    Actually, having said that, although the Lobo suits me fine I reckon fitting a waterproof jacket in there might be a bit tight.

    The Lobo is 3ltr…

    I’m after something smaller for ‘I can’t be arsed’ rides that last for about 6 mile 😆

    Fair do’s it does fit a 3L bladder but that’s about all! wait till the next ride and give it a goo. Personally I’d prefer the larger bladder capacity and less pockets for a ‘can’t be arsed’ ride.

    End of the day you don’t have to fill the bladder and the bit of extra plastic weighs feck all.

    All I can fit in mine is the basic tools and at a stretch a spare tube. Literally forget it’s there.

    I was just looking at those!

    What’s the physical size of the bag like?

    My Mule is a fairly hefty bag and I’m after one that is physically smaller!

    Had one of these for the last two years. Also got a camelback mule, but the High Sierra is a far more versatile pack and tougher. I can get work clothes in the High Sierra when I ride to work. For the price, you just can’t knock it.

    not to big if you dont put the water proofs in as they stick out in the mesh pocket other wise fairly flat and very comfy

    I have a CB Rouge and it’s an ideal small bag, fits all I need for most rides. I only use my bigger one(Osprey) if I’m out all day and need to take more food/fluid.

    I use the rogue in summer when I don`t need to be packing a jacket etc. just right for 1.5 lts fluid,multi tool,tube and a choccy bar,it`s also got a slim mesh pocket on the side for slipping a pump in.

    If you’re still trying to decide, have a look at a Dakine Session.

    I’ve always found Dakine stuff to be well made and durable. Comes with a 2l bladder (Hydrapak) and it’s got pockets/compartments galore. Waterproofs can be strapped to it with the armour carry. Great pack.

    I use a trespass bag had a 2l but will fit 2.5 at a push

    Plenty of space to put stuff I think it has 18l storage but if you don’t want much in it there are draw strings so it sits flat to your back

    Just checked and it’s a tresspass Zumba

    Big enough for the essentials and a raincoat/sandwiches

    http://www.trespass.com/zumba-01163. 20 quid and it’s a year old and still like new
