I looked for a long time for a good pack for my MTB trips that can support also day hikes and other activities. I ended up selecting the Raptor 14, and was not disappointed. During my first week, I used it for 1/2 day of ski, day hike and for 1/2 day of mountain biking. It did the job great, and earned the nickname in my family - "the magic bag" - having everything you need when you need it. Pockets/compartments are very well thought through. Convenient, right sized, addressing the needs. Resovouir compartment, size and attachment are great - loved the magnet that holds the valve, as well as t the very convenient resovouir pocket. The tools pocket I use for first aid kid - just stash it there and keep it for all my activities (I don't need tools there, as I have that on my bike). I can easily add food for the day, a layer for colder time as well as glasses, iPhone, iPhone battery, keys and wallet. The only thing I would improve - the adjustable waist straps form an unneeded loop when adjusting to shorter size. Not a big deal but can be improved in next version. Thank you Osprey for a great job on this pack!
