CamelBak Pursuit 24 LR Hydration Pack - 100 fl.oz.
Closeouts. Designed with a unique Antidote lumbar reservoir, CamelBak's Pursuit 24 LR hydration pack shifts the weight of your water from your back to your hips -- not only improving stability, but saving your back from weight and strain. Coupled with the breathable, super-supportive mesh back panel and load-bearing waistbelt, this could very well be the most comfortable hydration pack you've ever worn!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by ArcHunter from Ohio on Sunday, May 20, 2018Definitely worth the money if you get this pack on sale. Great for a day pack and maybe a minimal ultra light summer overnight. The lumbar hydration is a vast improvement from the full length style that ride next to your back. The bladder is a little tough to get back in the pocket when full but not a huge issue. Will be perfect for my weekend trip to Phantom Ranch in the Grand Canyon.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Grandpa Hiker from Arizona on Saturday, May 12, 2018Pack has excellent capacity. Really like the reservoir at the bottom of the pack. Adequate number of compartments with easy access. Many nice features at a reasonable price.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Alabama Day Hiker from Birmingham on Wednesday, April 18, 2018This pack is the real deal! So comfortable to wear due to it's frame which allows air to circulate. Holds more water than a person would ever need on a day hike, and is easily drawn via the tube and mouth piece. Storage space is tight but again, we're taking day hikes.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by PF in Bhutan from Bhutan on Sunday, February 25, 2018It is more functional and steady than my previous backpack. Attractive and comfy. I wish it came in 28 liters size so could fit more gear enough for cold wintry weather high up. I really like it.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dash from Maine on Thursday, February 22, 2018The 3 liter water capacity is the perfect volume for long day trips, there is more than enough storage for other items. The low lumbar position of the water reservoirs is well placed. It keeps the weight low and centered without sloshing around and shifting weight.
Getting the bladder it into its compartment, full or empty, as is a little cumbersome as is feeding the siphon tube through the pack up to the shoulder strap.
Unlike top load systems, I found that I had to have the water reservoirs in place before I packed the rest of the pack. It is nice to finally have a dedicated hydration system with this much storage.
Pack adjustments are extensive and well incorporated. It is light weight and the frame design keeps the pack helps with air circulation. I really like the little green reflective supports.
I was hoping that the CamelBak Pursuit could double as my cycling pack- I commute to work by bike. The top of the pack however, rides higher than most, making it a little less than optimal for my 5'9 frame.
Overall a great concept and a good pack for it's intended purpose.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Vilmark from Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Thursday, February 15, 2018Great quality that I always get from Camelbak. Bigger than I expected.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Stephen from Rochester, NY on Thursday, January 18, 2018Pack fits well and rides well. My only quibble is with the hip belt, which is not supportive enough for the size of the pack, and only provides one small pouch that won't even fit a cell phone. Not sure why pack makers can't provide two large pouches for easy on-the-go access to phones, lip balm, trail mix, etc.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by stoneyunit from Flagstaff on Saturday, December 30, 2017This pack has all the bells and whistles needed for a long day in the outdoors or even for a light overnight backpacking trip. It looks small but it packs a pretty big carrying capacity punch!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by BackNColo from Colorado on Thursday, November 16, 2017I bought this to replace my old Camelbak backpack that I used to cycle to/from work for 12 years. The design works for cycling. There are a few zippered pockets that are perfect for wallet/phone. The key clip if behind 2 zippers, which is less than ideal.
The hip pocket is a good size for badges, chapstick, and other small, quick grab items.
The bladder location, install/remove, and quick disconnects work great.
Minuses: Lack of integrated rain fly. No reflective stripes.
Reviewed by Adultman from NC on Saturday, November 11, 2017This is the perfect daypack for me; I've been looking for something like this for a long time.
For one, the hydration system is genius. The bladder is 3 liters and sits at your hips so you barely feel the weight. The quick link system also works better than I expected. I can fill up the bladder and attach the hose with only a drop of water escaping. It takes a lot of the frustration of water bladders away.
The suspended mesh back is also excellent, it is just like the AG system on my Osprey pack.
Storage is perfect too. Each of the panel pockets has a large zip for stuffing things in and features an internal compartment for small items. I can even fit my 15 inch laptop in there! I'm also a huge fan of the external stash pocket.
My only very small gripe is that there's only one hip belt pocket. I don't really understand why they didn't put two on there, but you can easily acquire a third party pocket of this is an issue for you.
At STP's price this pack is a steal. Just be aware this is not an overnight pack, but a daypack.
