Platypus Tokul Review
Even for shorter rides, I personally prefer to carry a pack instead of water bottles on my bike and jersey pockets bulging with tools, tubes and bars.
I found the Tokul 8 to be a great option for two to three hour rides, when I’m not concerned about extra food or layers.
Throw a pump, multi-tool, bar, and spare tube in the internal storage pockets, and a lightweight shell in the external stuff pocket and you’re ready to ride.
