    Need new hydration pack - Hydrapak Morrow vs. Osprey Raptor 14?

    It's time to retire my older Hydrapak hydration pack and grab a new one in time for the cooler weather. I'm looking to a go a bit bigger in the cargo storage department and am looking at either the Hydrapak Morrow or the Osprey Raptor 14.

    I have been relatively happy with my previous Hydrapak, though the bladder has been leaking at the quick release for months (when not attached, making removal for filling a pain). I have read good reviews of both and was wondering if anyone had any strong recommendations for or against either pack?

    I have the Raptor 14 and its been great. More than enough room for a day trip hike/ride. Airflow in the back is very nice.

    Take a look at Geigerrig.

    They seem to be pretty new to the market but I picked up one of the Rig 500's and have been really impressed with it so far. It's a good size and built like a tank.

    The fact that it is a pressurized system does seem to make me drink more water while riding, which is never a bad thing.

    I can't get enough of the 14 great amount of space and doesn't feel like its on me when riding.

    I have seen nothing but glowing reviews for the raptor. Could be worth a shot. Combined with the average performance of my Hydrapak, that it what I would go for.

    I've had great luck with my Deuter. My buddy sells Ospreys at his shop, and loves them.
