EVOC's Hydro Pro is a blend of a hydration pack and a vest
EVOC has achieved what it reckons is the perfect hybrid between a hydration pack and a well-ventilated vest by creating the HYDRO PRO. It's designed to keep you hydrated and packed for everything for big ol' gravel epics right through to full-on enduro races.

EVOC's new HYDRO PRO is available in two different volumes, 1.5L and 3L both of which get a quick-access main compartment that can accommodate a 1.5L hydration bladder as well as a number of smaller items.
The pack is designed to EVOC's athlete's strict requirements and it is made to be as lightweight as possible and with good ventilation for riding in the summer. It's also built to be pretty small thanks to a short contour so it doesn't cover a rider's back too much while allowing uninhibited access to jersey pockets.
With the main compartment, it's kitted with two 150ml mesh pockets at the shoulder straps, ideal for easy access to energy bars and gels, and then there's a zipped pocket (two on the 3L) underneath the mesh pouches, perfect for a phone and multitools.
The HYDRO PRO makes use of AIRO FLEX belts to keep the pack snug to the body but comfortable while preventing any side-to-side movement.
Other neat features include compression straps to keep the pack's contents from jumping about inside.
As for prices, the HYRO PRO 1.5L will set you back £95 while the 3L model is priced at £100 both including a 1.5L bladder.
