I'd go with the Osprey - never had one (Camelbak fanboy) but they have a great many fans plus it is hydration bladder ready - not sure the other one is?

I can't do without a hydration bag I must admit - stuff this bottle on the down tube - covered in deer/dog/badger shoite malarkey.

Spend the bit more on the Osprey and you'll feel the benefit. My (2) Camelbaks are the same. I've got a Hawg for all dayers and a Lobo for 2 hour blasts - either one I can wear all day never mind what I pack in them.

You get what you pay for.

Looks a god deal that. If you decide you want a bladder they can be picked up cheapish afterwards off ebay etc. if you get it let us know what you think. The Osprey's have a real good rep.

Yes different sizes mate - I'd assume you'd have to get the Osprey version and check which capacity the Osprey will take - my Camelbaks both accept up to 3 litre hydration bag but double check - some will only accept a 1.5.

I have this one, 3l bladder which you can remove easily, loads of pockets.

Has a clip that you can hang your helmet off to.

You cant go wrong with an osprey raptor 14 for long XC rides, I waited and got one for half price.

I`ve got the same 2 as Zulu,i regard them as summer and winter bags.i can cram loads of gear into the hawg,spare layers and gloves etc whereas my lobo is just big enough for spare tube,multitool,choccy bars and jelly babies.i find both really comfy and would recommend either.
