As seen in the link below, how do people rate these? Is the hydration compartment external?

The 25 is brilliant. You can tie bits on too for attaching skis, axes and rollmats.

They're great bags, not used the 30 myself, think mine is 25.

Hydration is external. Can't go wrong for the price.

bin using the 30 for years as a bag on my motorbike. NEVER lets water in even at "Motorway" speeds. Very simple, no pockets. just a bag with a simple back system and straps. no pocket for hydration

Are you sure there is no pocket for hydration as it does list one on the site???
In reply to AdCo82:

You just put it in the back panel section.

This.

The exterior back panel pocket has a support of sorts in it and room for a hydration pouch.

I've had one for 3 years or so. The ninja black "stealthy gourdon". Very handy versatile sack. I've used mine as a sack on the hills (my summer daysack fits into it perfectly for those days of day-long rain showers), as a gym bag, as an overnight bag.
I think mine was 22, 25 now but still a cracking bargain piece of kit.

Had my stealthy for about 2 years. fantastic piece of kit. use it as a work bag and takes a lot of punishment and still good condition.

theres a seperate back piece that would allow for a bladder aswell.
Was thinking of getting one for winter climbing and modifying it to allow for ice axes to be attached etc. we will have to see!!

get one you wont regret it.

They're excellent. But as others have pointed out you have to remove the back panel for a rather snug hydration pocket.

There are some other hydration bag sacks out there.
