I won the Source Spinner Pro 2 Backpack Review as a prize for winning the Footpoint Trail Series 2012. Thank You Footpoint Trail Series. The Source Spinner Pro 2 is a Mountain Bike Hydration Pack.

Pros
Detachable Outside Compartment and waist strap.
Side Mesh Fuel Pockets
Source Hydration Pack is of great quality
Easy Bite Flow Mouth Piece.
Waterproof internal valuable pockets.

Cons
The Shoulder Straps are stiff and sit out on my body.
Source Spinner Pro 2 is better suited for a male shape than a female shape.
It is heavy weighing 622 grams 500 grams with the outside compartment removed.

It comes with it’s own Source Widepac 2L bladder. The bladder has a bright orange easy slider opening. The bladder fits snuggly into the right side zip compartment.You can turn the mouth piece on and off, and it has a nice bite flow of water. It will not leak under pressure and it flows with all mouth orientations. It comes with an adjustable dirt shield on the shoulder strap. The hydration pack is Taste- Free, Bacteria-Free. The Source Widepac comes with crush and leak proof technology. The hose is insulated to help keep your fluids cool. This also helps add to the durability of the hose by cutting down UV degeneration.
On the back left side compartment you would store a water proof jacket and water proof pants. Also on the main body of the pack is 2 mesh gel flask size pockets in an accessible position. You could also use these pockets for gel flasks, gels, power balls or any other fuels you like to use.
The Source Spinner Pro 2 has an easy access water proof compartment to store your valuables in with 2 elastic mesh pockets for keys, ventolin, first aid supplies, and 1 large zip pocket which would be perfect size for your wallet. This exterior compartment is big enough to hold a thermal top and bottom, emergency blanket, beanie ,gloves and maps.
On the outside of the exterior compartment has an elasticated mesh pocket with a elastic tie to secure your hydration water bottle, or for fast stashing of a Thermal top. A nice feature of this compartment is that it is totally detachable.
The zips are strong, visible and easy to use.
The chest straps are adjustable horizontally and vertically as too is the mouth piece for the hydration pack. The mesh shoulder straps are adjustable. They sit out from my body, (I’m only 5 foot 2 inches) but fit my medium build husbands shoulder nicely. The Source Spin Pro 2 comes with a waist strap which is totally removable.
The Source Spinner Pro 2 under side is heavily padded with foam and a double mesh layer to prevent chafing on your back. It has a deep cross gully to allow for air flow down your spine.
The Source Spinner Pro 2 is stylish, practical and durable. The quality and attention to detail is fantastic. It is a great all round pack for training and with the option of removing the outside compartment a great racing pack too.
