I started testing the USWE MTB Hydro 12 backpack a few months ago, I’ve had it out on multiple rides, in resorts downhill riding, and in the backcountry on sweet singletrack, the pack performs better than anything available on the market.

The pack is extremely comfortable compared to all the other MTB packs I’ve had in the past.

The stock water blater is 100Z and sits well when riding up and downhill.

With plenty of space for all your day trip needs, storage space comes in at 12 liters and is big enough for that big lunch sandwich, or your leftover pizza.

The 4-point harness system rarely sits firm and comfortable.

The materials the pack is made of are high-grade that can handle some serious wear and tear.

Overall the best thing about the pack is the easy-to-use front harness that lets you in and out of the pack quickly.

Growing up as a kid in Brooklyn, NY, my first-time skiing was at age 9 at Loveland ski area.

After that first time I was hooked, I would come back to Colorado to ski with my uncle every winter, eventually moving to Colorado.

I enjoy spending the winter months ski touring in Colorado, I spent two winters in the Baker Backcountry area taking pictures and skiing the best the PNW has to offer.

I lived for a winter season, ski touring in Les Arcs France And skiing in Switzerland.

When the snow is all gone, that’s when the MTB season is open, I have been downhill biking for over 20 years, I have traveled all over the world for skiing and biking, the best summer I can recall was in 2006 when I spent the entire summer in Whistler and traveling all over the MTB freeride spots in BC.

I spent 3 months living in Nepal trekking all over and even made it to Everest base camp in 2012.
