In addition to its capacious main compartment, tool organizer, and accessory pocket, Evoc's FR Enduro Protector Hydration Backpack features ancillary pouches and external strap mounts to carry everything from sunglasses to helmets and protective gear. It also accommodates hydration bladders of up to three liters, so you'll have enough water to take advantage of the pack's all-day flexibility.
- Q & A
Does this backpack have the spine protector?
From reading tech specs it has a Liteshield Back Protection System that is CE Level 2 certified.
Ok, But Room For Improvement
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
There are a few things I like about this pack such as the general look and styling of it, overall fit, non-bulkyness of it. But I think it would be better if the waist strap was the same width as the buckles as it feels a bit like what I imagine a girder would feel like and it really makes you sweat. It would be nice if there was a half-way decent place to put a cell phone. The top compartment isn't as the phone just sloshes around in there and is difficult to reach. I would rather see one of the stretchy sleeve pockets on both sides of the pack actually have a zipper and be fleece lined for a cell phone. I probably would have chosen a different pack had I thought about these things more. In the end, it's just a cool looking average pack with an above average price tag.
Everything you need
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is by far my favorite biking pack that I own. It fits everything you need and more, but isn't too bulky or in the way. The helmet pouch is a nice touch, and the huge velcro waist straps really secure the pack close to you to take full advantage of the spine protector. I use it on resort days for downhill as well as distance rides to your favorite singletrack.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
a very bad experience, first use a handle was broken.
