Read below SOURCE rider Vanessa Kager’s thoughts on the 15L SOURCE Ride Pack. Her and coach Slavik Hannes are in the middle of their 2016 season preparation. Read Hannes’ take on the Hipster Hydration Pack in part 1 of our 2016 Packs Riders Opinion blogposts.

“I am not the tallest 15 years old girl and on those uphills my coach Hannes Slavik pushes me to 150%. As you can imagine there is not much energy left for carrying a heavy backpack. So riding with the Source Ride Pack for the first time, I really felt a huge difference because of the fantastic lightweight compared to other brands. After some quick first adjustments it felt very comfortable during the uphills and fit perfect on the rough downhill sections.

I am amazed by the hydration system!

There is enough space and the Ride Pack offers a smart set of compartments to carry all the things you may need on a trail. If it’s your tool set, an additional jacket or only some tissues and your keys, you won’t have to search for it – and you know us girls always tend to lose our things in a bag, luckily not in this one! Even if that’s no news for a Source pack.

… fantastic lightweight compared to other brands.

I am amazed by the hydration system and can’t imagine how I was able to ride my bike without this during the past. For longer tours or just an after school ride, this one is your choice for all kind of outdoor activities. And last but not least… that purple colour looks so beautiful!
