Little rippa of a pack!

by -

I've been riding with the TORO 8 for about a month now, and it is awesome! Everything about the pack works the way it's meant to and feels amazing thanks to the protector pad in the back. The straps are easy to adjust and have plenty of spare length if needed. I haven't tested out the armour carry system yet, but it looks solid enough. The fabric the pack is made from seems thin, but doesn't feel like it will be ripping any time soon. Another feature I wasn't sure if I needed but I love is having two sternum straps. They realy hold everything in tight.

Moving to the inside of the pack, at first you may be thinking: 'Oh s**t, this is smaller than It looks online, how will I ever fit all of my stuff in here?'. But worry not! The flap to get into the main compartment doesn't span the whole length of the usable space, and needs to be properly opened out to view the true glory of this bag! On the inside, the fabric changes to a nice, bright lime green, which helps you see your gear much easier. You also have two elastic loops and an elastic mesh pocket, which is handy to store your gear. Personally (as seen in photos), I use one loop for my mini floor pump, and one for my shock pump and use the elastic pocket for smaller items that I don't want flying around my bag when the trail gets gnarly. The little pocket up top is a fairly standard 'accessories' pocket; two small pockets for phone/wallet/keys and a key clip, and a decent amount of space.

Now, moving onto the protection system. This bit turns my head inside out. Get this - it's hard, but soft...this shouldn't be possible. When I first felt the pad without it being on my back, I was quite worried, because this pack ain't cheap, and the pad felt as if it was going to be digging in and restricting my movement. But when you put the pack on, the pad morphs around your body and creates a highly comfortable ride. Protection wise, I haven't had the use it thus far, but it feels like it would do the job excellently. Another few cool features of the pad is that it stops items inside the pack from digging into your back, a big plus from me as I have faced this issue in the past. Also, because you have a decent layer between your back and your hydration bladder, it is harder for heat to transfer through which keeps your water cooler for a LOT longer.

The 3L Crux resovoir is down right amazing. Not only does having the bladder filled 100% not interfere with the storage in the main compartment, but the mouthpiece is a dream come true! My last bladder was a different brand and really gave me the s**ts to tell you the truth. They aren't lying when they say '20% more water in every sip', it realy is great. I have never found myself struggling to get enough water out.

Hands down, five stars. Overall, a realy great pack. If you are worried about weight, although this is the lightest armour pad you can get at level 2, it does weigh a bit. Size: 5/5 Weight: 4/5 Storage: 5/5 Comfort: 6/5 Ease of use: 4 1/2 /5 Quality: 5/5 (All for my personal uses)

Bought this pack wanting a bit more room and the added protection. Very happy so far. Pack is very low profile and comfortable but has a good amount of storage for the kind of rides I do. I don't carry too much spare gear so this size has proven to be ideal. Phone, wallet, keys, tube, pump, multi tool, small first aid kit (when remembered) and a couple of snacks all fit in nicely. If wanting to carry jacket etc then would be a bit snug, but could always use the armour carry straps. Large bladder capacity will be great once the heat kicks in again and you really do get extra per sip!
