Updated for 2013! Ideal for mountain biking or fast-and-light day hiking, the innovative Osprey Raptor 10 hydration pack combines the carrying comfort, hydration capacity and organizational features needed for technical performance.
Unlike traditional hydration bladders, the Raptor 10's 3-Liter Hydraulics reservoir has its own direct-welded “backpanel” that minimizes "barreling" by maintaining a more anatomical shape. Nestled within its own dedicated, externally-accessed compartment, the reservoir is locked securely in place, reducing the sloshing effect that many hydration pack users have come to accept as a necessary evil. An anti-microbial treatment prevents mold and bacteria from building up inside the reservoir.
Hydration packs are also notorious for falling short on fit and comfort, but this is not the case with the Raptor 10. A molded foam backpanel provides a contoured, comfortable fit and a ventilated design promotes airflow and reduces heat build-up between the pack and your body. The padded BioStretch harness and hipbelt offer a secure fit that mirrors your movements during aerobic activities. Drawing tension along the top and bottom of the hipbelt, the ErgoPull closure allows convenient on-the-go adjustment. An adjustable and elastic sternum strap further ensures a stable fit and its magnetic hose attachment strategically secures the hydration system's bite valve. Side compression straps allow you to cinch down the packbag to keep contents safely in place and aid in load control.
The Raptor 10 has a storage capacity of 610 cubic inches. A zippered, lined top pocket is perfect for sunglasses or other valuables and a stretch mesh front pocket allows quick access to extra layers or other gear. A zippered lower compartment is dedicated to storing a removable, roll-up tool pouch (included). Zippered pockets on the hipbelt offer quick-and-easy access to energy gels, valuables and other small items. Light attachment points and reflective graphics add a measure of safety and an integrated LidLock clip securely stows a helmet without reducing the Raptor 10's storage capacity.
