Ergon’s taken what works, made some important improvements, and added a whole lot more room. The new 25L BC3 has plenty of room for everything, is waterproof, and still fits great. I loaded it up for a 5 hour shakedown ride in PIsgah last weekend and was really happy with the outcome. The two hilites; no sweaty back, and no movement. The “form” of the pack, those plastic hip parts and the ball joint set up on the shoulders, allow the bag, even fully loaded, to sit a little ways off your back. Even in a wool jersey on what became a warm spring day, i didn’t feel sweaty back there. And the support given by the ball joint allows you to snug the pack up pretty well, and have it move with you. It also puts the weight off your back and more cantilevered off your hips. Pisgah, if you haven’t had the pleasure of riding it, is pretty technical, up and down. Descending Black Mountain on a rigid bike is a pretty solid test as to whether or not the pack’s gonna move around. No problems…no up and down, no side to side, it was an after thought at best. I had stuffed it with a sleeping bag, pad, water, tools, shell, shower jacket, knickers, wool base layer, fleece, food for the day and more. it held it all, and the helmet carrier part can be used for a map and banana that you can actually get to while the pack is on…nice improvement over the BD2. If you like a light bike, and wanna try to keep more on your back, this may be the way to go. Highly recommended. I’m 5’10’, 160 lbs and have a small shoulder strap and medium waist harness (and Ergon Men’s S) and have it set up in the shorter of the two torso lengths….may try to adjust the length and see if it hits the hips different on the next ride…nice that they offer these options.
