excellent bag - annoying bladder
September 17, 2012
The bag itself is GREAT. I bought it to hit Cannel Plunge here in southern california. Knowing it was going to be a 5+ hour ride down a mountain, I needed more space. The bag worked out perfectly for that.
Zero complaints about the bag, it's spacious, comfortable and appropriately utilitarian.
The bladder on the other hand leaks at the mouthpiece. So my left leg is getting dripped on while I ride (and wasting my liquids!). I suspect it's something in the mouthpiece itself since when I drink out of it I'm getting air/bubbles... but I can see the tube and there is no air/bubbles in it. Annoying.
[EDIT] I emailed Dakine customer service about this, and the next day they emailed me back, apologized and mailed me a new bite valve. No questions, no fuss, no charge. That's good service my friends. They're backin their stuff up!

Dakine really knocked it out of the park on this one. All the pockets and functions are exactly what a mountain biker needs. The bladder/bite valve is good too. Get it.

Purchased this bad boy for my trip to Moab.
Dakine did a great job with the bladder. Easy access makes it a cinch to fill without removing. Also has simple disconnects for draining and cleaning.
Plenty of zippered pockets to stay organized. Tons of room for snacks, tools, and of course, water. Glad I had the Nomad on my back as I rode almost 30 miles on Porcupine Rim. It's a comfy pack, even fully loaded.
