Love the FlashFlo for biking and hiking in the summer when a full backpack can get heavy and hot on your back. Holds plenty of fluid and is comfortable. If using for long hikes or bikes, it might not hold enough fluid for the summer months but otherwise think it is great.

I bought four of these, one for my husband and I and one for my two grandkids. They are great. No more carrying water bottles for the kids and hey can carry their own snacks and have a pocket for trail collectables.

Love it. What did I ever do before without it? I hate carrying water bottles in my hands on long walks, especially in the hot summer months. With my new lumbar hydration pack I can keep up a good pace, continue my long walk, all while staying sufficiently hydrated. I've experienced no difficulties with this system. Thanks CamelBak

I own several Camelbak Products and love them, never had a problem. First one I ordered Leaked, which has never happened to me in a Camelbak Product.. I returned it and was sent another one which did not leak. Problem was that the tube is way to short to reach your mouth and if you fill the bladder and put your stuff in the pack it wants to lean backwards from your back.So to make a long story short I am out the money for it and it is going into the donation bag. Very Very disappointed in product. Bright side is Sierra was awesome to deal with on the first one I returned. It would cost more than its worth to ship it back.

I got this so that I could use it on long (bike) rides in the summer heat. I've used it twice since I received it earlier this week and it's just the right size! There is enough room to hold my cell phone, keys, energy bar(s) and an assortment of other things in the front pouch - with a full water bladder! I wear it low on my hip, which is great because I have a 3.5 year old spinal injury, and it didn't bother my back - even after a 24 mile ride! It would be nice if they had a longer tube, but... I can live with it. I keep the tube hooked on the belt (instead of my collar or sleeve) and I can access it easily enough.
Overall, this is was an excellent choice at an excellent price!!

Excellent overall. Once filled and secured, this Camelbak works as advertised. My only negative is that the reservoir is a little tricky filling and placing into pack. It's no big deal, but it's not the easiest.
