Guide Review - DAKINE Nomad Hydration Pack

We liked the the DAKINE Nomad pack for long rides where we wanted to bring some extra supplies along. It has plenty of space for a jacket, pants or leg warmers, and straps for armor if you need it.

The DAKINE Nomad hydration pack has a main organized compartment with three zippered pockets for organization. One pocket is long enough for a pump, the others are good for tools and tubes or anything else. The rest of this compartment is large enough a lunch and/or jacket.

In addition to the main organized compartment the DAKINE Nomad hydration pack has a huge second compartment with plenty of room for a jacket and pants or anything else you might want to carry.

If all that weren't enough, the DAKINE Nomad hydration pack also has a large external pocket that can carry cross country helmet or any other large item and compression / armor straps that can hold anything that won't fit inside the pack.

The only thing we didn't like about the pack is that one of the smaller organization pockets in the main compartment zips up from the bottom. This may seem insignificant but if you have anything small inside that pocket, It can fall out when it gets unzipped.

The DAKINE Nomad hydration pack is a great pack for the rider who likes to, or has to, carry a lot of stuff with them on occasion. The compression / armor straps keep everything nice and small when its not full but this pack can be loaded with more than most people will ever need to take with them.
