The Tracer has a whopping 20-litre capacity, mostly in its huge main compartment, which has a massive easy-access opening. The bladder is housed separately, just behind it. A front tool compartment has little mesh and zippered pockets and there are two large side pockets for water bottles. The huge top pocket is felt-lined and there’s a removable rain cover, reflective patch and light attachment.
The front panel extends to house a helmet and the unique hook closures double as compression straps. We love the height-adjustable hip belt, but on long summer rides the Ergo vent back padding sucked up sweat. This aside, the pack’s comfy and stays put when fully laden.
