Posted on Singletracks 9/29/09 - “For those who are looking for an affordable hydration pack that doesn’t suck, take a peek at what Hydrapak has to offer. I spoke with Dax Kelm at Interbike and he showed me some of the new and improved hydration packs.”
From Bikeradar – “Hydrapak is the Man City to CamelBak’s Man United – less lauded, less glamorous but growing rapidly in effectiveness. The new Morro model is perfect for rides up to and including the epic winter all-dayer, with enough space to cram in just about all the essentials.
The Hydrapak Morro has a main compartment with a long zip that means you can lay the bag down and lift the front of it right out to expose the contents from top to bottom. No longer can errant 2mm Allen keys hide in those dark corners. Add 13l of load capacity, a 3l bladder and a reasonably light 620g dry weight and you’ve got a highly useful pack. The plug and play hose is a great idea, as is the reversible bladder – especially for cleaning.
