I'm after a smaller hydration bag for those days where I just don't need all the space and 3ltr bladder in my Mule!

Ideally, I'd like something with a 1.5-2ltr bladder and enough spare space for the usual tubes, jacket, phone, keys etc

What would you fine folk suggest?

Actually, having said that, although the Lobo suits me fine I reckon fitting a waterproof jacket in there might be a bit tight.

The Lobo is 3ltr...

I'm after something smaller for 'I can't be arsed' rides that last for about 6 mile Laughing

Fair do's it does fit a 3L bladder but that's about all! wait till the next ride and give it a goo. Personally I'd prefer the larger bladder capacity and less pockets for a 'can't be arsed' ride.
End of the day you don't have to fill the bladder and the bit of extra plastic weighs feck all.
All I can fit in mine is the basic tools and at a stretch a spare tube. Literally forget it's there.

I was just looking at those!

What's the physical size of the bag like?

My Mule is a fairly hefty bag and I'm after one that is physically smaller!

Had one of these for the last two years. Also got a camelback mule, but the High Sierra is a far more versatile pack and tougher. I can get work clothes in the High Sierra when I ride to work. For the price, you just can't knock it.

I have a CB Rouge and it's an ideal small bag, fits all I need for most rides. I only use my bigger one(Osprey) if I'm out all day and need to take more food/fluid.

If you're still trying to decide, have a look at a Dakine Session.

I've always found Dakine stuff to be well made and durable. Comes with a 2l bladder (Hydrapak) and it's got pockets/compartments galore. Waterproofs can be strapped to it with the armour carry. Great pack.

I use a trespass bag had a 2l but will fit 2.5 at a push
Plenty of space to put stuff I think it has 18l storage but if you don't want much in it there are draw strings so it sits flat to your back

Just checked and it's a tresspass Zumba

Big enough for the essentials and a raincoat/sandwiches

http://www.trespass.com/zumba-01163. 20 quid and it's a year old and still like new
