CamelBak Classic 70oz Hydration Pack 2013
The Classic Camelbak 70oz pack is the ideal minimalist hydration pack if you are going to be in the saddle for two plus hours. Includes Big Bite Valve technology which means hands-free when it comes to hydrating.
Not too big, not to small. Just right! This is the perfect size hydration pack for when you don't want to carry any extra gear and just want to squeeze in a quick ride. The adjustable straps easily allow for your choice of a tight or loose fit. I mountain bike often and find that this 70 oz pack and a pair of pocketed baggy cycling shorts is all I need when it comes to hydration and storage during a 1-2 hour ride!
The bladder works great. Love it. The pack on the other hand isn't ideal for MTB. It moves around too much and doesn't hold anything other than a ID and house key. Also, due to the lack of a hip strap, it tries to move around a bit causing you to have a constantly shifting point of balance. ehh. The Bungee lacing on the outside was a good thought, but it isn't really big enough to hold a jacket, it needs to be twice as tall. Mesh shoulder straps are more comfortable than I expected. Overall I prefer my MULE NV for mtb. I wouldn't buy this again for my purposes. . .
