#backpackslayer– show me your shreddy mountain bike footage while wearing your backpack! Waldon83 on PinkBike.com threw that hashtag my way and I had to laugh. I’m finally reaching true #dadstatus!
I’ve been rocking Camelbak hydration packs for years and years, and made the formal switch over from fanny packs to complete backpacks due to the convenience of being able to carry a full jacket (or laptop) while commuting. And, it turns out that the extra back protection the hydration packs offer gave me some additional confidence to really send it.
Interestingly enough, ever since I was riding primarily with a pack, I started to ride better. Wheelies got easier, too. Weird, but that extra weight has helped me throw the bike around!
Now I’m stoked to know that my spine is protected AND I’ve got what I need in case of mechanical failure.
