    Hydration pack for 4+ hour rides

    I am doing my research and have "narrowed" it down to these 5 packs. I know, they are different, in size, protection...
    Which ones do you own and which ones would you recommend?
    I am leaning towards the Evoc Enduro 16. Or a cheaper Osprey Raptor 14.
    I ride in SoCal.

    Hydration pack for a 4+ hour rides

    All I can say is that I have the osprey and I like it I can fit all my gear and 100 OZ of water + it has a LIFETIME WARRANTY and they are great fulfilling warranty claims.

    How is the stiff bladder, does not press on your back uncomfortably?
    Does the back stay in place and doesn't move around while jumping?

    Look what a coincidence.

    That's a better review that the one I gave you.
