The Mule combines hydration and storage into one convenient pack. It's probably one of the best hydration packs you can get if you need to carry things along with you while you decide to go out cycling.

The Charge gives you more hydration than the Mule but simply isn't intended to be used in the same way. The Charge is great for those who want to enjoy their time out without having any stress on their back. If you don't want the bells and whistles, the Charge might be a better choice.

The fit is excellent and the adjustable sternum strap is perfectly positioned. We’d prefer the waist strap to be a little wider, but the pack barely moves on your back.

Fantastic fluid and load stability, comfortable fit, genuinely useful cargo capacity, fantastic Antidote reservoir design, lightweight yet durable construction – all in all, a brilliant cross-country pack.
