I bought this pack mainly for my wife to use when we go hiking. It's very light, holds enough water for a nice long day, and it's got enough storage to hold some rain gear and a couple of snacks. When I bought this pack I had the choice narrowed down to this one and the Camelback M.U.L.E. I liked this one better because it looked more comfortable with padded waist strap, it felt lighter (though specs say they weigh the same), and it looked easier to attach more gear to the outside of the Century if necessary.



The one thing I don't like about the pack is the bladder design is kind of funky (it's got this folding closure thing) and it sometimes leaks if you fill it up too much or don't close it quite right.

I have used my Hydrapak Century on a few bike rides. The extra volume is nice and I do not worry about running empty. There is a lot of space in the pack for light clothing, food, gear. It even has a nice cd player pocket. The bite valve is nice but it would be better if it was bent at a 90 degree angle like the Camelback valves.
