A pack that rides as hard as you do.

Meeting all your mountain biking needs and then some, the Dakine Drafter 10L Hydration Pack brings both hydration, breathability, and protection along for the ride. Durable 400D nylon ripstop makes up this pack's tough outer shell for resistance against snagging branches and the occasional crash, while its ergonomic, breathable shoulder straps and Air Suspension back panel help shoulder the load in stable comfort and reliable support. A three-liter Hydrapak lumbar reservoir always keeps hydration close at hand, and features a high-flow Blaster bite-valve for easy sipping without wasting water. Multiple pockets throughout, both internal and external, organize your sunnies, layers, snacks, and gloves, while also being DK Impact CE-certified Spine protector-compatible (not included) to boost your padding and defense against hard falls, if you want a safer option.

Everything you need & nothing you don't

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had my Drafter for about 3 seasons now and still looks like new! This pack is the perfect size for everyday trail riding & day hiking.

Typical contents include:
Extra tube/s, pump, first aid, tire levers, plenty of trail treats, head lamp, wind/rain jacket, multi tool, monocular (just in case of awesome wildlife sighting) and still room to spare for sure. 3L bladder is great for the longer rides and the quick disconnect on the hose makes it really easy to remove for fill and drying.

Wasn't too sure if the removable waist belt was going to be useful at first, but use this feature often when not using the pack on the trail. When traveling it is nice not to have the waist belt hanging around and to just get it out of the way.

I have previously been using the Nomad pack by Dakine but felt it was a touch too big for the day to day rides, this pack is certainly a happy medium. Enjoy the ride!

Ready to rip

    Used this bad boy a couple of times now. I am sold on the lumbar positioned hydration design, makes for a much more stable center of gravity. Plenty of organization and room for tools, lunch, layers, etc. My favorite part though is the mesh back panel and the perforated hip and shoulders straps - all of which keep the air flowing and those delightful sweaty spots to a minimum.

    Great Pack

      I just got this for my dad for his birthday and he loves it! The mesh back makes it able to breathe and not overheat the rider. And It fits everything he could need for a ride!
