Okay, let’s cut to the chase here- I really was a big fan of the older Raptor 10 that I had been using for several years. I had no interest in checking out other packs for quite a while there, but after using this new version of the Raptor 10, I can not see myself ever using the old one again!
The new version’s details, which I covered in the previous posts, takes this model and raises it to the next level. The useable hip pockets, the Tool Roll, and the way I can lay the main compartment open are all big reasons why I like this pack. I find things in a much faster, less fiddly manner and the pack does a great job of holding everything I need for day rides. I really like the white inner color of the main compartment, since things I am looking for are easier for me to see against that backdrop.
