Klim Nac Pak
Great for day rides
Great backpack for day rides on the trails. I kept it full of water, tubes, tools, and snacks with no problem finding a space for all of it. The chest strap and waist straps also help keep it in place when riding. The width of the pack itself is narrow which allows for more range of motion, and also less coverage on your back which means more airflow to keep you cool.

useless features very small
The tool pouch is a waste of space unless you ride something that runs the risk of breaking down all the time. The main pack can barely fit notebooks in it, forget about trying to fit a change of clothes. I was able to cram 10 16oz cans of monster in it though.

Solid option for water + some storage
Broke this in on a week long off-road trip to Moab and it worked well!
I bought this in order to have some compartments instead of just a sole water bladder and it worked well for me - big enough to stuff a layer and a few snacks in for a day long ride and yet not so big it was bulky or heavy. Thumbs up for just the right amount of space for my needs.
It comes with a detachable tool pouch which is slick -- a handy option if you don't want to ride with any luggage. On this trip I did use luggage so decided to use it as my primary tool roll but stored it in my luggage. Surprisingly solid little case with zippered mesh pocket on the inside and plenty of elastic loops for tools. Zips all the way around to fully open/close. I may just use this for my regular tool roll.
For the water bladder, by day two the mouthpiece was dripping a little when not in use. The info that came with the pack said it had a locking valve but couldn't figure it out the entire trip. FINALLY realized it was just a HARD twist -- now it works beautifully and makes sense. Just had to give it some tough love the first time.
I'm a HUGE fan of the water bladder -- the quick release tube, the easy fill, easy dry out -- I was the envy of my friends with different systems. Was really happy to have such an easy system.
This pack is a big bigger than a water bladder only pack but I was happy with it. Fits well, doesn't shift around and doesn't add a lot of weight even with the additional compartments.
Performed well for the month I've had it - looking forward to future trips with it!

Klim products are superb!
I love Klim products pretty much over all riding gear - their attention to detail, fit, and finish are in a class all their own. Of course, their gear is expensive, but in my humble opinion, you get what you pay for.

Much better than carrying tools in a hip belt!
Really nice to combine the water supply and tool belt into one package. Rides much nicer as a small back pack rather than pulling down your pants!!

I have used this pack on a couple of trips now and it is very comfortable. Water storage is great but a full hydro pack will limit storage. The removable tool pouch is useful on its own.

Top quality, tons of storage. Even includes a tool pouch, well worth the money.

Happy Nac Pack
I've wanted to pick up a Nac Pack for a while. It's quality is just what I expected from Kiim. Excellent fit and finish. Great functionality. I'm trying to figure out what else I can do with the shovel holder. Nice bag.
