    nice biking bag

    I was at Costco in Avondale last night and they just got these in. Nice hydration bag with good space for riding. I have a camalback from deployment but the air flow back is much nicer. Not bad for $19.99 (black and navy only)

    nice biking bag

    I have a High Sierra ski bag and boot bag that are durable and well-made, so I reckon this pack will work great.

    I had one. Returned it and bought a Camelback. The bag was ok, though the zipper tended to snag. The bite valve on the bladder leaked from day one, and broke after a month of occasional use. The Camelback bladder and valve is far superior. Better product all around and worth the extra $$, especially if you can get it on sale.

    Edit: I liked the clip closure on the HS bladder, too bad the valve sucked.

    The bag isn't too bad but the valve sucks. Replace it with a Fox valve and your good to go.

    Spend a little more and get a bag that will last you a lifetime. I own two Osprey Packs, and i'm looking at a third for backpacking. Their warranty and customer service is legit (almighty guarantee). I broke a sternum strap recently and they sent me two replacements for free. The bladders are also really well designed. My $.02 take it for what it's worth

    Buy the camelbak bladder and keep the bag. The bag is a good deal.
