  • The Low Rider is rated slightly better than the Palos.
  • In total, we have checked and analyzed 146 reviews of the two bags.

Both bags are available in these colors:

Only the Palos is available in these colors:

These hip packs are great for outdoors athleticism without the hassle of a heavy backpack. Obviously, you won't have all of the compartments of a hydration backpack available, but you will have the hydration you need in order to keep going.

Both packs give you the hydration you're going to need for exercise and both are conveniently lightweight.

The Palos differs from the Low Rider in terms of more compartments and better load bearing hip belts. It's great for carrying a few small things while you're jogging or stretching.

The Dakine Low Rider is for those who want only the necessities and nothing more. Buy it if you only want your hip pack for hydration and nothing else.

Bike Radar

It’s hard to recommend this pack for mountain biking. It’s faffy to use and even when tightened down an uncomfortable amount it’s still prone to bouncing about, on even mildly rough terrain. Add in the rather annoying to access main storage and there’s little to like.
