The Raven series is part of Osprey’s new premium line of women’s mountain biking hydration packs for spring. As the women’s specific version of the Raptor, the Raven is sized and tailored specifically for a woman’s body, using a more ergonomic harness and shorter torso for better fit.
The Raven’s 6L zippered main compartment provides just enough room for all the essentials on my local mountain bike rides. I can fit my bike tools, enough water for a few hours on the trail, snacks, and even an extra layer for the ever changing weather conditions associated with NorCal riding.
The Raven mountain bike hydration packs come with their own roll up tool pouch to help keep all your gear organized. The pouch also comes in handy if you want to easily switch between packs without forgetting anything. Nothing is worse than flatting on the trail only to find out you left your cartridges in your other pack.
