cozzeyHow do you think this would work for biking? Looking for a good bike daypack and this seems about the right size but may be a little bit too bulk and hot
If you're looking to carry something more than just a bladder I'd say this would be a solid choice.
This pack is pretty simple/minimalistic, but still has room to hold more than just a bladder. Removing the back panel would make it lighter if you wanted - the back piece appears to be designed to keep you cool with the ridges for air to pass thru. Of other packs I own, I'd put it between my dakine network II and chute cooling wise.
The key points I like on this bag are the semi-rigid backplate and it being 1 main top pocket. I personally use a Dakine Chute + Baker 16L packs for both skiing/biking which has the main top compartment split into 2. I sometimes wish it was just 1, due to having times where I had to cram my down mid-layer into them, which causes them to bulge out... Since the back piece is softer it creates a hotspot on my back. While the 9L camelback bag I own is a weird bulky design making it really only good for holding the bladder + key/phone/snack. No spare room for tools or extra gear/clothing.
