This is easy to use, holds perfect amount of water and very functional pack space for other items. Back is ventilated so I felt my back can breath. Great item at a great price with Deal Flyer! Biking and hiking uses.

This is my first hydration pack and I bought it because a) it's a camelbak which seems to be a good brand, b) the waters sits on your lumbar area instead of the thoracic, c) it's in a cute color and d) it seems like a great deal. Man am I happy I bought it before it goes out of stock!
I just used it this past weekend for a 3-mile hike outdoors after I figured out (with the help of the Q&A section on this website) how to maneuver the chest straps. I'm new to all of this so it took me a hot minute to figure out how to wear/fill this thing. Fits me perfect though and I'm a 5'7" female and it holds a lot of water (perfect for a day hike).
The lumbar aspect of this bag makes a huge difference when you are hiking or biking uphill...where you have to lean forward. So instead of being top-heavy, you are bottom heavy so your hips carry the weight instead of your back. The cushioned portion of this bag that sits on your back is airy and comfortable. The amount of storage this little guy has is amazing. I set my dog's water bottle in the outside, center (non-zip) pocket, which was easy to pull out and put back in. Phone and keys were in the bottom, side pockets that are close to the front and then there is plenty of other little pockets and storage for other miscellaneous items (doggy bags, energy bars, etc.).

This pack must buckle around your waist because of how the hydration bladder goes into the pack. I don't like this. I used it hiking and biking. Both experiences was not a great feeling. Plus the hydration bladder is so very hard to get in and out of the pack and you really cannot fill it up but half way. I can say that I liked that it took the weight off my shoulders but I just could not get used to the waist strap especially while biking. When I would have to get back up on my bike the buckle would hit the bar connector. This might not be an issue for taller women. I sent it back and ordered a different brand and style.

I got this for my mom who is an outdoors nut. I got the men's one for my dad also and they both love them. I was blow away by the great price for such a good product. We will see if they hold up, but I bought myself a Camelback 10 years ago and it was ridiculously expensive but has held up well. Hope these do the same.

I got this hiking backpack on sale for $50, it was the most worthed money I ever spent for my hiking gears. on top of the built-in hydration pack, this back has plenty of space for your hiking essentials and it's very lightweight! I love it
The bladder itself is not insulated, but the compartment is padded enough that the sun doesn't get to it very easily.

Hi Emily - I'm not sure what an insulated water pak looks like exactly, but this one is made of a thicker, more durable plastic. I don't leave it any place that my cats can get to it when it's drying though (not even on the counter) just because it is penetrable. I included a picture so you can see what it looks like. Hope this helps!

I also am 5'7", female and wear the pack at hip level so the buckle is ~2" below the belly button. The chest strap is adjustable but difficult to slide (which is good!). I have mine adjusted to the lowest point on the shoulder straps and then the hydration tube fits nicely in the plastic "anchoring" hook on the strap.
Good luck! I love mine!

Thank you for responding! I didn't realize the chest strap was movable! That fixed my problem and I just used it this weekend. It worked amazing!!
