Endurance Path

This pack was exactly what I was looking for when I bought it and have no complaints. It fit a little more gear than what they advertised, yet not too bulky for such a large capacity bladder.

Bike Radar

Strikes a great balance between minimalism and practicality. Well worth considering for shorter stints.
