    Vaude Tracer 16

    i know this is completely useless and not the same pack, but i just oredered the Vaude Tracer 16 and will receive it on Monday. I can repost and speak to the general constructions of their packs. I had a hard time finding good info on their packs as well, but decided to order because they are on sale at backcountry.com right now and seem to have a lot of good features.

    If you're not in a rush just search through the internet and you'll find a good deal. I got my osprety raptor 14 bag on ebay for $40 new. I waited about two months though...

    I have an Osprey pack, I beleive a 10, and thought it was just ok. I then bought the Dakine Nomad, and that is simply brilliant.
    The osprey pack would drip out the mouth piece onto my crotch, and without realizing it, I would look like I wet my pants. My only beef with the Nomad is that the valve on the mouthpiece is extremely hard to open and close. So I just leave it open, and be careful when I pack it into the truck. If you set the pack on the mouthpiece, all you water will be gone when you unload it.

    I've owned Dakine, Camelbak, Geiggerig for different things and they all worked just great. Buy the one that you can afford. Hell, my brother rides with me every time we go on a long haul and he's sporting a Wally World outdoor products rig, loves it.
