...and that's about all I've got to say 'bout that.

Holy smokes, what a revelation to wear a hydration pack and not have a finish the ride with a soggy wet back.

I don't necessarily like being forced to go back to wearing a waist belt, which I got away from doing with my Blowfish and liked;

I don't like that the Deuter is basically one humongous compartment and that the bladder kinda bulges into it;

I don't like that I have no convenient place to hang my Dough Boy mojo.

But all in all the Race X Air capacity is about the same as my unexpanded Blowfish, and did I mention MY BACK IS DRY! That's it -- I'm sold.

Now I just need to find a new home for the little guy (he's smiling because his back is dry, too!).
