Like most outdoor sports, mountain biking is primarily a man’s world, at least in terms of gear. So I was happy to find the women’s specific Osprey Verve 10 Hydration Bike Pack. I’m an intermediate mountain biker and most of the rides I did in this pack were one to three hours. I used the Osprey Verve 10 on around 20 rides for this review.

I’m picky when it comes to hydration packs, the extra weight on my back usually makes my lower back hurt. For years, I used a minimal Wingnut pack that didn’t even have a top compartment.

Osprey makes the Verve series in both a men’s and women’s model, with the primary difference being that the women’s pack features a shorter torso. This is good or bad, depending on the length of your torso. I am 5’8” and felt the torso on the women’s pack might be a bit short for me.

However, the pack is comfortable and has some nice features. There is a small pocket at the top that is good for small items or electronics. Since I turn my phone off and don’t ride with an Ipod, I fill the small pocket with car keys, lip balm, patch kit and energy bars – the kind of stuff that would fall to the bottom in other packs I used.

Women’s Verve 10 Hydration Pack, Breast Cancer Edition


I’ve become so numb to the ubiquitous pink ribbon that it’s rare when a special-edition breast cancer awareness product catches my eye. So when I spotted this amethyst-hued hydration pack and learned that Osprey donates $4 of the purchase price to the nonprofit Breast Cancer Fund, I was intrigued. With its strong-yet-feminine color and subtle graphics of prayer flags that Fund supporters use to communicate inspirational messages, the pack doesn’t scream cliché.

As for functionality, the lightweight pack features an outer mesh pocket and two zippered pockets, the divided main one big enough to stow several spare tubes, CO2 canisters, cell phone, and enough food for hours on the trail. The reservoir holds 100 ounces of fluid, more than enough for my weekend afternoon trail excursions. The bladder contains no BPA or PVC, so water doesn’t take on a plastic aftertaste, and an antimicrobial coating prevents germy nastiness. Thanks to an anatomically contoured shape, the pack is comfy to wear and doesn’t bounce around or slide.
