Camelbak Hawg NV 30

 I decided Now that I'm getting a little fitter I can maybe carry a bit more,so opted to get my hands on a Camelbak Hawg NV 30.

I have so far only just used the bag once on my trip down to London whilst attending a conference that Pace Rehabilitation arranged. First thoughts on the backpack, well it's big and i don't mean that as in it is way to big on your back, no as it big in how much it can carry. Believe it or not I had my whole riding prosthesis in the pack, that's socket, my BTK,tendons, pylon and foot and I still had room for my pj's and cycling gear, gloves,jersey,socks and shorts, plus a few odds and ends like meds and a multi- tool to pop my limb back together when I needed it.

There must have been well over a stone in weight in the pack and it carried very well on the comfortable straps. The pack has some nice features like a zip that you can open and increase the size of the bag when needed and also a built in rain cover, that fits neatly into the bottom of the pack. It also comes with a 3 litre bladder for those longer days in the saddle.

So first impressions are rather good, looking forward to seeing how it performs whilst out for a longer ride.

An expandable mountain bike pack for multi-day transalpine rides.
