The new Raptor series of packs from Osprey are a real step forward in hydration pack design. Built specifically for the mountain bike market they are going to make other manufacturers really sit up and take notice. The packs themselves are made to the usual Osprey standards and feature internal organisation for pumps and tools along with multiple storage options on the inside and outside of the pack. A clever lidlock helmet attachment buckle is a clever feature and very easy to use.
All the Raptor packs come complete with Osprey's new Hydraform Reservoir. We also sell these seperately along with replacement bite valves and tubes. The reservoirs have a solid back to them which helps greatly with stability in the pack, loading and loading and continuity of water flow.
