    I know there is a pretty strong riding community on here, so I am hoping I can get some input.

    I am needing a large hydration bag for my ride to work. It needs to be big enough to carry a change of clothes and my lunch.

    I am currently looking at the Dakine Apex bag, but would welcome some suggestions for alternatives. Also, if anyone has some major hookups discount wise, let me know!

    I currently ride with Osprey. They have lifetime replacement for free on the bags. I have broken my bag out of stupidity and they replaced the hose assembly completely with out questions.

    +1. Urban Assault would be a good choice.

    I ended up going with the Osprey Viper 13.

    It's not as big as I would have liked, but I am still able to fit everything I need in it (barely).

    I like the valve system, it's pretty slick. Thanks for everyones input!

    Awesome bag. I have it in red and could not be happier with it.

    Why did Oakley discontinue theirs?

    I run a dakine apex. All my tools, 4 beers and a footlong or burrito. Everything I need for an all day ride :)

    That's what I was looking at, but I couldn't find a good enough deal on it for me to justify the added expense. I do like the capacity of that one though
