    I don’t even bike but the Raptor 14 looks cool to me because of the "tool" roll. Looks like a great place to throw some EMS supplies for yourself in case you or others around you get injured during an event or hike. You could easily fit some Isreali bandages, some CAT tourniquet’s, QUIK-CLOT, 2×2’s, 4×4’s, roller gauze, and some stuff that you’ll probably actually use as well.

  3. Josh O'Brien on August 7, 2019 at 2:16 am

    looks decent, but prefer evoc backpacks 🙂



  4. Cal on August 7, 2019 at 2:18 am

    Ordered one yesterday 😀

    how much did you bye it for



  6. Jeremy Parker on August 7, 2019 at 2:21 am

    What do you prefer? Camelbaks or osprey? Both bladders and packs now that you’ve had your osprey for awhile.

    I bought this bag (Osprey Raptor 14) after using Camelbak’s for years. The bag was great and I have no complaints at all, however the reservoir had a plastic taste that I could not get rid of. I could not get over the funky taste so I returned it and I’m using my Camelbak again. It’s a shame I really tried to like this bag, the tool pouch area is invaluable and I wish my current bag had it. I may end up buying the bag again and using a camelbak reservoir in it as I’ve never had any issues with Camelbak branded reservoirs.

    14 liter???



  9. Ike Taylor on August 7, 2019 at 2:24 am

    You can put the hose under the straps of the chest mount.



  10. Henry G on August 7, 2019 at 2:27 am

    I need one



  11. Roy Castillo on August 7, 2019 at 2:28 am

    Brian, I purchased this Osprey Raptor 14 because of your review. I have success using the helmet hook and I love that feature.



  12. Cheeky Kent on August 7, 2019 at 2:29 am

    LOLOL 3:44 8===D–



  13. thestrauss on August 7, 2019 at 2:30 am

    Always only water in the bag. A bottle for mixed drinks. Or maybe some jels or tabs.



  14. Tom Clark on August 7, 2019 at 2:30 am

    How’s the bag working out? I have the Osprey Raptor 10 and find that with the bag’s chest strap and magnetic bite valve attached I get a clacking noise when using the GoPro chest mount. But the chest strap is handy in that it can help secure the GoPro chest mount tighter against the body. Not sure if the clacking is from the hose/valve or the strap. How are you using the bag with with your gimbal and chest mount? Did you actually cut off the chest strap and retract the hose?



  15. Chan Jayden on August 7, 2019 at 2:31 am

    Maybe you can use lemon juice and water to make it smells fresher



  16. vboytan on August 7, 2019 at 2:33 am

    Just bought this thing brand new for $23 👍👍



  17. Andy J on August 7, 2019 at 2:34 am

    Any chance of a long-term review of this bag?



  18. Donald Lee on August 7, 2019 at 2:37 am

    hey brother, looks like you can use a HybriFlow unit. Let us know if you’d like to try one! http://www.hybriflow.com



  19. Eto Demerzel on August 7, 2019 at 2:38 am

    Did you say "being very anal about cleaning it"? 😀



  20. Lima Peixoto on August 7, 2019 at 2:40 am

    I bought the same backpack , but i think i need a rain cover . Do you use on your backpack ?



  21. LostInPA on August 7, 2019 at 2:41 am

    I use only water and bring the little Gatorade chews. They are like a square gummy. Has all the electrolytes and I can keep my water bladder from getting gunked.



  22. Evan Hasson on August 7, 2019 at 2:41 am

    That is so damn funny. I just picked up my Raptor 14 yesterday and I felt the same way opening up the hydration bladder. Haha.



  23. Obi Wan on August 7, 2019 at 2:43 am

    I always ride with a bottle on the frame with a sports drink and a pack with just water in the bladder. Much easier to clean the bottle after😆



  24. Yaron MTB on August 7, 2019 at 2:44 am

    👍 📹



  25. Timothy DS on August 7, 2019 at 2:45 am

    I did notice that the "Osprey quick release" feature that is always depicted on the images of the water bladder is to be obtained separately instead of being included from the start … a bit unfortunate in my opinion since it makes pulling out, filling, … the bladder more easy. So if you want that kit you’ll have to order it separately :/



  26. Wes Chilton on August 7, 2019 at 2:45 am

    I have an Osprey Manta 36 that I use for day hikes that is awesome. Very comfy and lightweight and amazing how much you can stuff in the thing. Its probably too big for MTB use, but I might try it anyway. Still, a 14 looks like a great size!
    For shorter hikes and rides I still use my awesome little Camelbak Ambush tactical hydration pack. You can’t put a ton of stuff in it, but its super compact and still has a 3L bladder and an insulated drinking tube!



  27. Scott Phillips on August 7, 2019 at 2:46 am

    Hey @BKXC, just wanted to let you know that your videos steered me to get an Osprey Syncro 10 (didn’t need to carry as much crap). It got me through my first 100 mile MTB race, and performed amazingly. Guys at the aid stations were commenting on how nice the bladder opening is!



  28. Angel Ornedo on August 7, 2019 at 2:47 am

    Super important! This saves me a lot of thinking and mulling around what proper equipment I should get 🙂



  29. Sphoxros on August 7, 2019 at 2:47 am

    Got the Exact same pack! That thing saved my back in mid July when I was ran off the trail from another rider from the rear and went over the handlebars and onto my back, padded my landing pretty damn good and the hydration pack is fine afterwards, I have the older hydration pack so am not sure how the new fold over type would have done, but other then that the packs are the same.



  30. Maximus Marzy on August 7, 2019 at 2:48 am

    Purchased this after watching your review, awesome bag lots of room.. thanks Brian!



  31. Mark Collingwood on August 7, 2019 at 2:48 am

    Hi Brian. Hows the Raptor holding up? I’m looking at a new hydration pack and considering the Raptor.



  32. Bryan Haynes on August 7, 2019 at 2:50 am

    just got one delivered last week to try, as I noticed both Seth and Alex got one too, so hope its a good bag.



  33. Unknown on August 7, 2019 at 2:51 am

    For some wierd reason this is still one of my favorite videos…please do more review and unmoving stuff. love your content.

    Cheers!



  34. Obi Wan on August 7, 2019 at 2:52 am

    Is the bladder bpa free?



  35. Youbikewithatube on August 7, 2019 at 2:54 am

    I love Osprey Packs. I’ve had a Talon 22 that is about 4 years old now that only has one tear in
    the waist band pocket but everything else works almost brand new, no
    zipper problems at all which is a pet peeve of mine with some packs. I’ve never had a pack that I’ve loved more than this one and they all seemed to actually bother me after a while. I had my doubts about its durability at first because its also one of the lightest packs of that size I’ve ever used, and its been super durable which has surprised me quite a bit on many occasions. The mesh air back on it is amazing, as well as the vented shoulder straps, and Ive had stuffed enough gear in there to equal about 30 pounds and ridden it heavy and on long rides and it carries that weight better than any other pack I’ve tried. I’ve taken this pack on bike packing trips around Bryce Canyon, here in Colorado and on many back country trips and adventures and have commuted with it to work for 4 seasons of riding. Ive washed it 3 times now because it just got too dirty to live with, and a new guy at work just asked me if it was new!



  36. BAJAEXPRESS27 on August 7, 2019 at 2:57 am

    I just ordered my Osprey Raptor 14 off of your link. I’m 55 and just trying to get more into mountain biking and you have a awesome channel and the info is greatly appreciated.



  37. shootertg on August 7, 2019 at 2:58 am

    I’m also wondering which one you prefer after years of using it would you buy another one?



  38. OFFROAD_DRIVER7 on August 7, 2019 at 3:00 am

    quick tip: when you have finished with your water bladder and hose rinse it out and then throw it in the freezer till you use it next that way you won’t get mold and your liquids will stay a little cooler may even cool your back for a while.



  39. Mark Conde on August 7, 2019 at 3:01 am

    @ BKXC. You can use the camelback flavor pills that don’t have the added suger to create mold and still have electrolytes. You can also give it to your plants…"it has what plants crave, electrolytes"



  40. Mark Conde on August 7, 2019 at 3:03 am

    Thanks for the video, from pictures I thought it has a bit more room inside and a larger compartment but the bladder zipper deceived me.



  41. Fattie on August 7, 2019 at 3:04 am

    I just ordered the osprey zealot 15. Looks like a pretty good pack so far. Will never buy a camelback again.



  42. 7Lasso on August 7, 2019 at 3:05 am

    Just picked one of these up. I was really torn between this and the EVOC Stage 12L. Really like the bolster pockets and roll up tool pouch on the raptor, but the simplicity and ruggedness of the EVOC. Deciding factor was that the Raptor included the bladder.



  43. Maycon Lima on August 7, 2019 at 3:05 am

    Hi, what do you think about the black color? Does the backpack warp more in the sun because of the color?



  44. Christian Moniz on August 7, 2019 at 3:05 am

    When ca we expect the long term review?



  45. Goat Rides Bikes on August 7, 2019 at 3:08 am

    2 years ago already. Jeez. Osprey still the best. The Legendary Unlimited Lifetime Warranty.



  46. Cody Wayne on August 7, 2019 at 3:08 am

    sweet shirt!



  47. Keith Donaldson on August 7, 2019 at 3:12 am

    How about a rundown of your video setup. Camera, gimbal, software, storage, batteries. What you carry along with you. Would be good info!



  48. Brandon Perez on August 7, 2019 at 3:12 am

    Try Trace Minerals Research Endure drops for electrolytes. The stuff is phenomenal.



  49. José Torcato de Almeida on August 7, 2019 at 3:12 am

    That costs 140$. That’s a bit expensive for a backpack.



  50. FapGatUSA on August 7, 2019 at 3:12 am

    How’s this holding up? I need a pack big enough for a first aid kit and other maintenance stuff. Looks like a great bag!
