CamelBak Helena 22 Hydration Backpack - 100 fl.oz. (For Women)
Closeouts. Stay hydrated and well-equipped during short jaunts and longer day hikes with the CamelBak Helena 22 hydration backpack. Built with a shorter torso length and a generous main compartment, it features compression straps for stability and a 100 fl.oz. reservoir.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Koyuk from MA on Tuesday, May 12, 2015This is a good size pack for long day trips. Not only do you have a large hydration bladder, but there is also room for two additional bottles. What is missing is a nice wide belt and good size wings. For those of us that will carry lots of water (weight) and wish to carry most of it on our hips, we will be left trying to modify the belt. Too bad; it could have been a perfect pack.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by keb from portland, or on Friday, April 3, 2015I have only used it once, but it worked great and is beautiful.
Reviewed by The Bargaineer from NJ on Monday, March 30, 2015This is a great hydration pack with 19L of room to stow your jacket, lunch, snack bars and other items on your hike. The included 3L Antidote bladder is stored in a separate pocket so it is well insulated and stays upright with the ledge custom made for the Antidote. For extreme winter or summer days, you can always buy the insulated tube to replace the included uninsulated one to keep your water cool. In addition, there are also 2 side packets that fit 1 L Nalgene bottles so you can even swap out the bladder for bottles on certain trips if you desire. When not hiking, the Helena can work as a great commuter or campus bag. You can take out the bladder and use its compartment to hold a tablet as this compartment has great padding for extra protection, far better than most dedicated laptop backpacks.
The pack is relatively narrow and the torso length fits women well. I am 5'1" with a 15.5 inch torso length and this pack is a great fit for me.
The Mykonos Blue/Blue Jewel is a great color as it screams less of "girlie girl" than the other two available colors. Material quality is excellent and I expect many years of enjoyment from this well-made pack.
I highly recommend this hydration pack to all women.
