I have this one exactly, but with a protector in it. I guess they don't make it anymore. http://www.evocsports.com/de/bike/performance-backpacks/cc-16l It seems to me that there really needs to be a buckle on top of the stretchy mesh helmet area to secure the helmet because they just get plopped out by the stretched fabric. The bottom of mine blew out badly with holes. And the thing that really gets me is that after I put my 3L bladder into the bladder pocket, there isn't really room left in the pack for other stuff. For one, it just can't hold a full face helmet efficiently in any way on the outside, because there aren't enough straps. For two, if you are going to be storing a helmet, you're going to have knee pads with you, and you can't fit knee pads in the "13L" that are supposedly leftover after a 3L bladder is in the bladder pocket. The smaller outer pocket is fairly useful. I put a tube, pump, wallet and multitool decently well. Also, the top goggle pocket area could be velvety for goggles. That'd be a sort of obvious touch for a $90 backpack. Also, the construction is poor in that the key holder ripped off very easily (which is pathetic honestly. I'd expect that from a walmart bag). I think rather than make it so damn thin, they should keep the bladder pocket long, and put a majority of the "16L" down low in a bigger area. Adding hip pockets would be a great touch like you were saying. Getting rid of that neck thing would be really smart of them too. The handle that digs into your neck when you are going down steep stuff, and the pack is sliding up.

Doesn't yours rid up when you have it full and you try to go down a jump trail? I agree with the sweaty part and the lack of waste pockets. The latter would be a surefire improvement.

The zippers have always been a big problem for Dakine. Their fabric is tough, but stupid heavy. I accidentally melted my Builder Pack with bug spray though :( For Evoc, they don't put nearly enough or strong enough fabric where all the weight concentrates at the bottom of their packs. They also don't have a good system for people who aren't fat in that my hips are wider than my stomach, so how are the hip pads going to keep the pack from shooting up when I go over jumps?

Evoc backpacks are kinda shit. They could really use some help with their designs and material usage. Their backpacks ride up like crazy, and take up a ton of space for very little storage. Their material usage is prone to holes, and they don't hold stuff well.

Rarely use my Evoc protector bag anymore. It has a massive hole in the bottom which occurred from regular use over the course of a year. Pathetically bad backpack. Lucky for me it was free. Would not get again. Might look into a Camelbak if their durability is really that good.
