Anyone have much experience with their packs? Looking to get a new riding backpack and i wanna try them. Anyone know any dealers in the lower mainland?

I have 2 Evoc packs… love them. Depending on model some have built in back protection as well which is nice.

I have a 3L and 16L from the Lite Performance line.

good: They’re durable enough, have good storage setups, light, and fit really well.

bad: The hydration packs that EVOC includes (Hydrapack) are less than ideal. They stain REALLY easily. The one I own is dark green from a couple drink mix applications. They also come default with a fixed hose, making them hard to clean. I bought the 16L without a bladder. I think you can find most packs sans bladder.

NSBS had them last time I was in.

I have a pack, I love it.

They come in different lengths as well. Try them on. Durability wise they are top notch, and the added bonus of a serious back protector that can be inluded in some models is a neat, and pretty logical move.

The design of the bags, zips and compartments is well-thought out. And any hydration bladder fits, I think. I run a Camelbak.

Pretty sure FanatykCo in Whistler has a bunch in stock.

I got one. They're big. Too big almost. I do use it also as a regular pack and will be awesome for snowboarding. That being said, you can barely feel it on your back. Although it feels a little silly to have a few tools, etc. in such a big bag.
