At that price, check that you actually get the bladder with the bag. Certain stores sell the bladder as a separate item. I haven't bought anything online without having seen it first in a shop - call me the cautious buyer.

 

Have just read the write-up again, and I see that it includes the bladder/reservoir - R395 should be a good buy then.

Mike Bikes stocks them, but haven't had a real look at it. Sounds good from the web link

frankie, go for a larger version. 4 litres of space is nothing. You'll barely be able to fit a spare tube in let alone a jacket / arm warmers / food etc.

 

Minimum capacity should be around 10 litres.

Thug: Thanks for advice, but I recon you can put extra clothing in the bunjee mesh can't you? 10litres sound very big, and I heard the Camelbak mule is very popular one for MTB and it has only 3 litre capacity? I mean I just need space for spare tube, tyre levers, pump and maybe energy bar or two, or what am i missing, I am new to the mtb so need as much advice as I can get.

camelbak - tried and tested.

 

used my "rocket" on the weekend for the first time in a long time, and really enjoyed the user-friendliness of it.

Don't forget that the space is measured with the bladder being EMPTY. As soon as you fill that bladder up, you don't have anywhere near that stated volume to utilise.

 

The Mule has a 3lt bladder and a 7 lt storage capacity.

 

I got the Salomon raid revo 10 which supposedly has an 8ltr capacity and as soon as the bladder is full, I can barely fit a jacket in (First Ascent ARX) after the spare tube.
