The story behind CamelBak hydration packs started back in 1988 when a guy named Michael Eidson was preparing for the “Hotter’N Hell 100,” a 100-mile summer cycling race in Wichita Falls. Before the event, Michael (an EMT by trade) filled an IV bag with water and stashed it in the back of his jersey. With the tube slung over his shoulder and a clothespin to pinch it closed in between drinks, Michael had unknowingly created the prototype for what would become the CamelBak hydration system.

I love everything about this pack. Its the perfect size for a nice day trip. The straps expand easily to squeeze every last necessity in. Also, I like how the hip-support straps are removable. The only complaint I have is that the hydration pack was difficult to open for the first time - It took me almost 5 minutes to twist it open.

This pack works on so many levels. Women's specific design, fits a 15" torso, hold a 3L bladder, back pad actually does ventilate. This is the smallest volume pack I found that holds a 3L (100fl oz) bladder. Much needed in the southwest. New CamelBak bladder design. Very pleased with fit, form, function. Great score with STP pricing.

She's a runner now so my girl of course had to have a stylish backpack to keep her hydrated. The catch is that she gets to carry my stuff to whenever we go on hikes or runs! This pack is simple and has the right amount support while running, very light, and she thinks it looks "sexy", i think that helps her run faster... oh and the top pocket is good for putting your phone there to listen to music and run! awesome deal too!!!

Not too much to say here. It's a hydration bladder, and a simple one at that. 3L is a great size to have for long trips, or at any other time for those like me who get thirsty quickly. On the positive side of things, the opening to the bladder is wide enough to clean easily, and it seals very securely. However, the tube isnt the easiest to keep clean, and the mouthpiece can leak if it's accidentally pressed open. But for this price, its a great deal.

I don't like any weight on my shoulders, so the lumber reservoir is very comfortable. I thought there would be more storage capacity for gear, but I have only used it once so far, so I may discover ways to store gear more efficiently the more I use it.
