Packed is a new series designed to show you exactly what EVOC riders stuff into their backpack before heading out on the trail for a ride.

Carrying the correct equipment is essential when heading out on a ride as changing weather conditions and the need for a little trailside maintenance can make or break your adventure. First to be put under the spotlight is Fort William local and EVOC UK team rider Hannah Barnes from the MTBCut Team who shows us what she takes out on the trail.

With a large range of backpacks on offer EVOC have a pack for your needs. Whether you're looking for a small XC pack like the CC 3litre hydration system or you're a mountain guide who takes everything except the kitchen sink out on the trail, EVOC has a pack for you. They even offer CE rated spine protector packs.

Here is what Hannah takes with her on a day ride.

Pack – EVOC FR Women’s Trail 20 litre

Van keys – To get warm and home after a ride
iPod – I love music out on a ride and in my van pre and post
Hope Vision 4 light – Bright and powerful and ideal to keep my ride going into the night
Multi tool – For making adjustments and fixing on the trail
Tube – I use Continental tubes which are light and keep me rolling (as do my Continental tyres)
Pump – To pump up my Continental tyres
Tyre lever – I don’t use fancy ones but they are a must for every ride
Lip balm – an essential to keep the lips tuned!
Spare hair bobble and grip – also pretty essential!
Food – I usually don't eat anything as I'm not usually out for more than 2 hrs, but it would be a minor disaster to be hungry so I take something just incase
Water bottle – it usually has some electrolyte stuff in it too for some energy goodness :-)
