Video Transcript for Review of Thule Backpacks - UpTake Hydration Backpack - TH3203808

Hi, everybody. Andy here with And today we're gonna take a look at this Thule UpTake hydration backpack. Now this all around hydration backpack is going to let you stay hydrated without slowing you down on the trail. Now, this backpack features Thules hands-free ReTrakt magnetic hose return system. So we have our hose here and I just wanted to show you how this is going to easily return to where it is going to be stored with this magnetic strip that is right here. So you're not gonna have to worry about it just hanging around or potentially getting caught up in this strap.

Just pull it up, and it's going to easily become disconnected from the magnetic strips in here. And then when you're done, it's just going to drop back into place and it's going to hold onto that strap. So that's a really nice feature of this bag and a really nice feature of this hose in particular. And so that's nice that it's not gonna be flapping around while you're out on the trail. Now I'm just going to begin to take a look at some exterior features that this bag has before we open up the inside of the bag.

This has an exterior zippered pocket right here. That's going to offer free, quick access to your phone. So lemme turn this around so you can see that there. So I've got my phone here just to show you how easy this is to use. I'm gonna throw that in.

And so that's going to allow easy access to that. You're not gonna have to worry about rooting around deep inside the bag to get your phone. It's gonna be right there and easy to pull out. And then some other features here as we're looking at the external parts of this bag is an exterior compression panel that is going to allow you to fit items such as your jacket or some gloves. So the idea is you just slide a garment through there like a jacket, I've got a pair of gloves here, something that you need to have quick and easy access to again, without opening up the bag.

And so this is going to allow you to put items like that in this little portion of the exterior of the bag. And then you can make these straps tighter if you need to to hold it in a little more securely. I think this would be great for like a windbreaker or like a rainproof jacket that you can just kind of roll up and slide in there. Let me give you another view here so you can kind of see that from another angle. Slide that in there, roll it up, and then that will hold it fast in there, and then you'll have easy access to it if it starts to rain or it gets a little bit cooler for you on the trail. Turning this over, this has a perforated foam harness and back panel. That's going to keep you cool and comfortable. And then these straps are articulating. So again, this is gonna be a pretty comfortable bag to wear while you're riding. And then flipping this back over here we have some reflective trim and a light attachment loop. That's going to let you stay visible in low light conditions. So again, just some really neat features of this bag. I don't think I mentioned the integrated waist strap here. That's going to provide added stability when carrying a full load. And of course we have the strap here that's going to keep the shoulder straps together after you have this on. So I think that's about all the features I wanted to go over with you externally. And then opening this up, has a two zippers here. So we're gonna go ahead and open this, the interior up here and take a peek at the inside. Now this has about 732 cubic inches or 12 liters of cargo storage that's going to let you organize items such as a pump, tools, snacks, an extra layer of clothes as well. So for the size of this bag you do have quite a bit of space to store items in. But the star of the show is the two and a half liter hydrapack reservoir. It features a slide closure that I want to show you. So you can see that this is going to easily come out of here. Let me go back to another view here, just to show you this. So this is going to come right out. And so this is going to allow you to remove it to fill it up and then to clean it. And then I would mention that slide enclosure. This is a pretty nice feature where you can just slide that off and then that's going to allow you to easily fill it, clean it out. And then when you have this filled up you can just slide this back over and that's going to keep the contents of the bag, the water, nice and secure, so you're not gonna have to worry about leaking or anything like that. So I'm gonna go back to our overhead view here and that hydrapack fits right here in that panel. So after you fill it up, you can just slide it in. Put it in the right way here. So that's what's nice about this bag is it's going to be very easy to clean and let it air dry and then fill back up when you're ready to use the bag and hit the trail. I'm just gonna make sure that that slides all the way into that panel. And then just to kind of show you some of the other features here, by the way this is going to hook into this loop here just to hold it secure. And then I just got some other items here that just kind of wanted to give you a demonstration of how you could do some of these pockets, like for instance this interior pocket here, this interior mesh pocket. You could throw some snacks in there, some food items, and then to throw in like a bike tool here with this pocket right here. Again, stuff that you can easily get to. You've got a little clip there where you can put some keys out there for easy access. And then I noticed on the outside of this bag there's quite a few loops that you could put carabiners on or something like that. If you wanted to have something easily accessible on the outside of the bag as well. So you're gonna have a lot of storage space for its size and I could see where you could fit a change of clothes in this or a thicker jacket, something like that. So it's gonna be, again, it's not just for carrying water you're gonna have quite a bit of flexibility with carrying other things with you as well, that's important to have while you're on your bike out on the trail somewhere. Obviously, this is a blue color, one of my favorite colors, and more like an aquamarine, a lighter blue on the portion that against your back and the straps as well, kind of a lighter blue color. Now the measurements, just to give you an idea of the size, this is about almost 18 inches long, and then the width about nine and seven eighths inches wide. And then the overall depth when you have this fully filled out, we're gonna be sitting right about six and three quarters inches wide, and this weighs about a pound and a half empty and this does have a limited lifetime warranty. And again, this is not fitted for me per se but I just wanted to go ahead and slip it on here real quick just to show you what it looks like on my back. Just gonna put it on loosely here. So turn it around. Kind of gives you an idea of the space it'll take up on your back. And again, that strap goes right back into place with that magnetic feature. So again, this is going to be really handy to have while you're on your bike. Has a lot of great features on it that I think are going to be very practical when you're needing just to take few of the essential items that you need. And I think that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..
