Platypus Tokul XC 5.0 Review
I found the Platypus Tokul XC 5.0 to be a great option for two to three-hour rides when I’m not concerned about extra food or layers.
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.
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.
