    I'd go for one of the Leatt packs before anything else. their harness system is excellent. Feels like you're not wearing a pack at all.

    I've always liked the Evoc stuff but never owned it. I've never worn a Camelbak I liked (fit wise) so between the two I'd choose the Evoc.

    How'd you narrowed to these two packs? I'm interested for the sake of my next purchase. I'm another who uses the Raptor and as of now, if I lost it I would buy it again. My pack has about four years of good use and is just now in need of some attention, so will be finding out more about the All Mighty Guarantee soon.

    They are the two backpacks that have most caught my attention.
    But I can see other recommendations
    In favor of Camelbak I think the weight is 700g per 1050gr Evoc.
    The water bag I do not care because the water tastes like plastic. I'm taking the water bottle.

    Another vote for the Osprey Raptor but if I had to pick between the two I'd take the Camelbak Kudu. Currently on sale at Merlin Cycles...great deal at $88.

    Im considering the same as the OP. I'm most likely going Evoc, but to be sure I may order both and free UK return the one I don't like back to CRC.

    Pictures of people wearing these packs is incredibly helpful. Is it just me or does the FR Enduro seem pretty big/bulky?

    I haven't worn any of these packs but I will say the KUDU has my eye more than the rest. I think the size is spot on for me. Good luck in your decision!

    My candidates are Camelbak kudu and Ergon. Evoc seems the cover of a piano keyboard.
    It does not seem to fit the body as well as Camelbak and Ergon

    I've been riding with the Evoc most of this year. It's comfortable and secure on my back. It's well constructed, but it's a bit heavy. The lower strap is quite large and can feel a bit restrictive on my breathing going up hill when fully secured. I keep the lower strap loose until i go downhill. The spine protector runs the length of my back, and I feel well protected. The pack can feel very warm, and on a hot day, it's feels too hot. On the flip side, this has been my go to pack for night riding and now with the cold weather, this pack keeps me warm even if i just wear a thin jersey in 40-50 degree weather.

    This isn't my only pack, and I tend to only use it when I carry my Bell face guard which fits in the outside flap. I remember when i first got the pack, i thought i would not be using it because it was so big and heavy. But now i'm used to it.

    I don't have experience with the Camelback, but i think my experience with this type of pack will be comparable with any type of "enduro spine protector" pack including the Kudu. I also have a new Mule. I think the Evoc material feels thicker and the construction is beefier...IMO.

    The lower band is not comfortable ?? you mean the waistband ??
    I thought that would strip more comfortable.
    The helmet you wear is the Bell Super 2 ?? good helmet

    Don’t sleep on Platypus Duthie. I have one and love it. Great storage options, comes with best H2O bladder. If you don’t need spine protection get one of those!
