    Dare I ask? Fanny pack?

    Whos rocking a fanny pack? I finally succumbed to the pressure. Verdicts still out...seems to be pretty bouncy. Also, the waist band/belt kinda digs into the waist.

    I know, I know... fanny pack lol. Lets hear if anyone else using!

    Camelbak Palos. 50L bladder. Plenty of storage for essentials on a 1-2 hour ride. 1.5" wide strap cinches well and keeps it in place. I use it for probably 50% of my rides with the Camelbak Mule NV the other half.

    camelback palos as well! its great for shorter less than 3 hour rides. try wearing it up higher than just sitting on your waist/hips, I find it dosent bounce around then.

    I wont be giving up the backpack style pack permenantly anytime soon. It was an impulse buy while at REI for something else. I have several friends who have made the switch and rave about them. Variety never hurt!

    Ended up with the Evoc hip bag.

    Ill be set for theme parks and malls if nothing else.

    I'm running the DaKine Hot Laps 2L and it's been fantastic. Has a bottle holder which I used for the first time today and it held really well. Cooler than a full Camelbak on your back.

    It's too hot here for a full pack in the summer on a typical in town lap. I store as much as I can on the bike and the rest goes in a fanny pack. I'll rock a pack for big rides and even a proper jersey with rear pockets on my XC bike.

    If your bike holds a 20oz bottle, then this one rules. It holds a bottle securely and tons of stuff. I put all of my stuff in it: 2 16g CO2, multitool, chain link, tire plugs, Pedros tire levers, 27.5x2.5 tube, cell phone, wallet, car keys, 3 gels and room for more.
    Ideally, I'll find some kind of seat pack that is dropper-compatible to handle the bulkier items. Maybe an Outvi.

    I actually kinda like wearing a fanny pack backwards (over my actual "fanny") for lighter shorter rides. I use a camelbak pack on longer rides. It has saved my back in several big crashes. If you're riding a particularly gnarly area, the backpack could really save you some pain, and it also doubles as convenient storage and hydration!
