Ok, so I do not like riding with a backpack...phew I said it. However, I'm also not a fan of riding with shitloads of stuff (levers, CO2, first aid kid, phone, tool, granola bars, etc.) stuffed into my pants. I'm going to bite the bullet and look into a hip-pack.
I'd like something low-profile that can hold those minor items mentioned above, and also an extra bottle. I like the style that fits under the jersey, and doesn't look like something out of the early 90s.
I was thinking the new Bontrager one looks interesting - has anyone put their hands on one or know where to find one on the Shore? Otherwise, what others should I be looking at?
