Camelbak walked away with the What Mountain Bike ‘winner’ slot in the mag’s round-up of big packs for all-day mountain bike rides this month with their HAWG NV (£120).
With 17 litres of gear room, there’s more than enough for your trail snacks, waterproofs, toolkit and spares of everything – even after you’ve slotted in the 3-litre water reservoir.
Helmet hooks keep your helmet secure if you’re the sort who likes to de-lid for sweaty climbs, and twin bike tool organiser pockets will appeal to the OCD heads who like everything in its place.
The trademarked NV back panel keeps you cool and comfy with multi-directional ventilation, and there’s an integrated cover for when it (inevitably!) tips it down.
