Love My New Bag!!
July 23, 2012
The Dakine sessions bike pack is the best hydration pack that I have used. There are many compartments which allows for multiple items to be carried. For me, I ride my bike to work and needed somewhere to store my things and it works out perfectly for this. This pack can be used for a day trip for hiking or biking. It is also small enough that one could use it while running and doing other leisurely activities. I would recommend this pack for anyone who is an avid outdoors men/women. the only downfall that I would have to say about this pack is that I am only 5'3 and the straps need to be adjusted to one on the smallest adjustments for me so there is also of extra strap but i just cut it off.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Great little hydration pack

I'm 6' 195lbs. I bought this to be used for short hikes, so maximum storage space, a good hydration system and a lightweight package were the goals. In my opinion this hits on all areas. It's high quality backpack and hydration system. I needed it primarily for the hydration system, but also wanted something small to carry small items (firestarter, multi tool, poncho, pistol, munchies, etc). I didn't give it 5 stars because of the bite valve. You have to suck pretty hard to get a good mouthful of water. Studies show that the easier it is to drink, the more you will drink. This is a hydration pack so that's the whole point. So, I plan on switching the bite valve out to a Camelbak most likely. Other than that, the quick disconnect, the entire pak compartment and the bladder itself all seem top notch and wonderfully designed. FWIW I got the Timber color, which is nice because it's somewhat camo patterned but with the bright orange accents it gives it a more modern flare and adds visibility (I don't hunt). The interior is also all bright orange.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
