Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Nice size with separate compartments to got more in and hydration bag works well
Good little bag but wrong valve
Same as other buyers, stuggle to get water throught out the valve and back home I've noticed I had water left in my bag. Camelback works better but had decathlon hydrabag before and worked well. Otherwise was not sure about the chest system but it works really well and very comfy, choose well the size of tools, pump and everything as space is reduced so mini format stuff required.
Useful backpack, limited hydration
Used for 3 to 6 months
The backpack is perfect for biking, lots of pockets and storage for inner tubes, a pump, a few tools, phone, cash etc. It was exactly what I was looking for and it fulfills this completely.

The reason for the 2* review is that the main reason that I bought it was as a hydration pack. I have previously used products from DaKine and Camelbak and both were able to deliver the liquid quickly without much effort. By contrast, I find this one actually quite a lot of effort to suck through and when gasping for breath and in need of a drink on a long climb, it's actually fairly useless. I have taken it full on three MTB sportives this year of 5h in duration and in each case have returned home with it half full and feeling dehydrated.

If you need a pack for cycling, I'd suggest getting this and then binning the bladder and putting in a better one with an increased flow. This may make it uneconomical, but then, you get what you pay for.

This is the first decathlon product I've purchased that didn't live up to their normal high standards.
Good size for biking, waterproof enough
Limited flow through the hydration tube
Response of the brand
Dear Sir,
Thank you for taking the time to review this bag.  Your feedback is very interesting and I will forward it on to the product manager to bring it to her attention and she will look into it.
In the meantime, two options: 1) have you pulled the bite valve to it's "open" position? can you check this please? & 2) If the rate of liquid release is still slow, send me your address and I will post a new valve out in the post to you to try http://www.decathlon.co.uk/500-replacement-bite-valve-id_8307746.html
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Was looking for a small pack for rides rather than commutes, but wasn't looking to pay a lot . This fitted my needs totally.
first hydration pack.
only ridden in the cold, so don't know if it gets too warm in summer
value for money. light but space for essentials
Good Quality and value once bladder arrived!
Used for 1 week or less
I wrote the previous 1* review. Decathlon did send a water bladder after a bit of chasing and, in the interests of fairness, I'd happily now give the complete kit **** (four stars). The backapck is slim but strong with several useful storage pockets and a zipped phone pocket. I can take spare tube, tools, food bars/gels and two lites water (orginal specification was for 1 litre bladder but larger one fits fine). Oh and it matches my red triban 3!
Good quality sturdy, slim, comfortable, pockets
had to chase missing baldder - a faf

Needs some adjustment to fit, can spray yourself with water if not careful and water weighs more than you think.
Good fit, plenty of storage, good value
