Osprey Raptor vs Camelbak MULE

The Osprey Raptor is filled with compartments and accessories to make it much easier to explore during the day and night. You'll love this if you want to hike or climb mountain trails.

The Camelbak MULE is great for the outdoors too but it's meant for someone who wants to exercise rather than explore. You don't necessarily need a hydration system to go uphill or improve your visibility at night.

Athletes would be better served by the MULE while the Raptor is a perfect fit for hikers.

Single Track World

A high-quality pack that oozes brilliant features, the Raptor 10 offers just enough space for all-day riding, with a decently low weight and packability that makes it a great weekday trail pack too. Comfortable, adjustable and very functional, it gets the tick of approval from us.

This is a great all-day pack for those who enjoy stowing the essentials as well as having some room to play with. If you want to give racing a go, the Raptor is light enough and more than tough enough to start hunting for valuable seconds too; it’s a complete performer.

The Osprey Raptor 10 is well-designed pack that is ideally suited to mountain bike rides lasting 2-4 hours.

Overall, it seems Osprey has thought of everything a mountain biker could ever want or need in a pack. It’s also available in 14 and 6 liter sizes.

An excellent pack with some great features but the back system may not be to everyone’s liking.

Superb pack design and comfort with an excellent bladder to boot.

I think this pack is a great first attempt by Osprey to target the mountain biking community. I will be excited to see future generations of the Raptor line. I am currently considering purchasing a smaller Raptor for short rides and even going up a size for long, cold, night rides.

We really like the ?t of the Raptor: it’s right up there with the best from CamelBak and Hydrapak with a ?rm con?dent feel, regardless of load.
