New to hydration packs but would recommend this to anyone!

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.).

Can't wait to use this baby again! =D
