Our Conclusion
The EVOC Hip Pack Pro 3L is aimed at mountain bikers, but the user base is broader. For any outdoor activity where the need to carry weight at the hips is useful. If used for trekking/hiking, it is suitable for daily use to carry only the real essentials for a day trip. This means standard trails and not overly technical trekkers, backwoods running, and cross country skiers.

Any day outdoors where you want to carry some gear and water will work with this waist pack. The key to effectiveness, comfort, and performance is that the activity involves being upright and wanting easy access to water or gear.

Carrying Capacity

Carrying capacity is standard and allow you to bring just the basic items you would want on a mountain bike ride or walking a trail. For bikers, there is a front pocket which can be used for carrying tools.

Access to the main compartment is user friendly and works via zippers and Velcro closure systems. Internally the pack has three elasticated pockets which can be put to use for securing small items. The main compartment holds the water reservoir in a sleeve made from nylon. The reminder of the compartment can be used for stowing essential gear.

You get two waist pockets with zip fasteners, these are large enough for a phone, energy bars or other similar sized gear. The two mesh pockets for water bottles are durable and carry bottles while giving you ease of access to water. If you use the reservoir option these two mesh pockets are good for stowing extra gear.

Comfort

The inner of the belt is padded and has designed in features to ensure ventilation. Users feed-back that the strap system /design enables the pack to sit securely to the waist without discomfort. Velcro has been designed in to help set up a good FIT and this makes adjustment very easy and accurate. When you have set the FIT for you, simply secure the buckle and you're ready to go.

The waist band has ample width and sits comfortable with your hips. The rear of the pack has three pads with a screen cover. The pads give support in combination with a ventilation air-flow.

The Bladder

The bladder is easy to fill, disconnect the main hose and directly fill the bladder. You can carry 1.5 liters, which is enough for a days biking or other outdoor activity. The hose nozzle is fitted with a shut-off valve tp prevent spilling water.

If you prefer bottles, these can be carried in two side mesh pouches and are very easy to access, even while on the go.

The price tag is higher than a good number of comparative options. To make the purchase worthwhile we can factor in that this pack is well designed, has nice features, quality materials and gives a good performance.
