About the Product
You’ll love the way Osprey’s Raptor 10 carries when you’re riding rough, technical terrain thanks to the BioStretch harness and hipbelt. Specially designed baffles in the 3.0 Liter LT liter Hydraulics reservoir reduce liquid movement for increased pack stability at high speed. The hydration sleeve is zippered for convenient refills and the hose routes over the right shoulder strap to the sternum strap where it anchors with a magnetic disk for on-the-fly access. There’s a stretch mesh front pocket for stashing a layer at the bottom of the big climb, zippered hipbelt pockets to keep a phone or other valuables secure, and a special scratch-free sunglass pocket to protect your shades.
Pump up your tyres and head for the single track with the Raptor 14. The trail may be rough but your pack will carry close thanks to Osprey's BioStretch™ harness and hip belt that comfortably connect the pack to your body. The 3.0 Litre Hydraulics™ Reservoir reduces liquid movement for increased pack stability at high speed. The hydration sleeve is zippered for convenient refills and the hose routes over the right shoulder strap to the sternum strap where it anchors with a magnetic disk for on-the-fly access to the bite valve.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Osprey Raptor 10 Hydration Pack
  • This backpack is quality, comfortable, and all the compartments in it are well thought out and useful.
  • Very light weight, comfortable, and room for snacks. It's been quite helpful for carrying smaller loads and great wight distribution.
  • The pack itself is very well designed so that it is comfortable and doesn't put too much weight on your neck or shoulders.
  • Quality and comfort is excellent. I've already done a few rides in 90+ degree heat and it isn't a burden to have this on my back.
  • I love this pack. Super comfortable and light. I can fit a lot of gear in it if need be, but I prefer to keep it minimal.
  • Its very lightweight which is great but the material is very thin so durability is a question.
Osprey Raptor 14 Hydration Pack
  • Perfect light weight pack, even with 3 liters of water, the weight was barely noticeable.
  • The stabilizer wings on the waist strap work well. The raptor is lightweight, has great organization, and a convenient bite valve magnet on top chest strap.
  • I like the helmet clasp also as it allows me to keep my helmet attached to the hydration pack. My smartphone fits perfectly in the hip belt pocket for easy access during ride.
  • This backpack is quality, comfortable, and all the compartments in it are well thought out and useful. It is built for mountain biking.
  • It is very comfortable, back sweat is minimal, tool pouch is awesome, good soft storage for phone in top pouch, helmet attachment is great.
  • The only feature I could not find was a place to safely store my car keys. Most bags I own have a zippered pouch and a clip to clip my keys to for double safety. Not this bag.

What customers say about "Features"
Osprey Raptor 10 Hydration Pack
  • Very light weight, comfortable, and room for snacks. It's been quite helpful for carrying smaller loads and great wight distribution.
  • One really nifty feature is that the hose magnetically latches to the sternum strap, making it super easy to grab and go without a hose dangling around.
  • Pockets are big enough to hold tools, extra clothing, food, maps, etc. Different pockets make it easy to separate things as you need.
  • The helmet lock is a feature that I never knew I needed until now. The tool pouch is thought out and when I put my air pumps in the bag I realized there was space made for them.
  • Very functional, the bladder is easy to remove and replace. The tool area is handy for longer rides.
  • The water bladder has an odd fold-over style opening for filling, and an inferior bite valve. It's probably great for emptying and filling water, but not very efficient.
Osprey Raptor 14 Hydration Pack
  • Great pockets and love the tool section from my mini pump and tool set. The drinking tube is great by attaching with a magnet.
  • The sip tube makes staying hydrated much easier - and the pack allows me to remove bottles, pump, saddle bag from the bike and place them in the pack.
  • A few of my favorite features: zipper pockets on the waist strap make it easy to access small items like gels, and are a perfect place to stow my car keys after locking up.
  • All the pockets and various organizers and mesh pockets make it super easy to organize your gear and allow it to be super easy to find when you need on the trail, whether hiking or biking.
  • I like the key hook in the side pouch so I don't have to ride with my keys grinding in my pockets.
  • Despite the upper price segment for the Raptor 14, the hose of the hydration pack is made of some bad material using the wrong chemical stabilizer to make it UV resistant.
