Evoc's all day back pack was given to MBR for their "12 Trail Pack Megatest". Here's what the had to say:

With only one main compartment where the bladder slides into a sleeve, a vertical back pocket, a top phone/key pocket and a few side mesh pockets, the Evoc does look pretty clean and sleek. There are no compression straps or clips to flat around, but this does not mean the large main compartment has nothing to daw in unused capacity if it's less than full, and your kit just tends to wallow about in the bottom of the pack. That's not my preference, but horses for courses. Nor am I a great fan of the bladder in the main compartment; try as you might, it always comes in with some water, whether as spillage or condensation. This keeps gear crushed down to the damp bottom, and as some of it rarely see's the light of day it could ultimately be damaged as a result.

The mesh side pockets are good for bars and gels on the move and I like the zip away helmet carrier - but that vertical back pocket can only be opened with the pack flat on the ground, otherwise kit will just come spilling out. Ultimately this is a well-made and durable pack, but it will end up pretty pricey when you add another ?20 minimum for a reservoir.

Full review can be read in July 2011 edition of MRB.
