I bought this because I wanted some extra storage in my camelbak for hiking and fishing supplies. I think it has just enought storage to fit what I need. I gave this 4 stars because I feel that the material is a bit cheap and I am not sure how it will hold up over time. It also does not feature the quick fill that a lot of camelbak's have but thats not big deal. I used it on one hike so far and it did its job and kept my water cold for a few hours and was able to hold everything I needed. Overall I got this for a great price and I am pleased with it.

I just bought this pack a couple of weeks ago, and I just arrived from my first hiking day to try out its performance, it actually fits great in the back and has a great size not too big but with enough space for things like notebook, compass, extra layer, some snacks, rain cover, digital camera, pens and my rock hammer (cause I am a geology student), it also keep things dry if you go out in a rainy day or season. My only complain is regarding the resorvoir with quick link, cause I do not know why mine came without it....so I recommend this product, but it would be better if you buy it from a different seller, one that send you the product as it is described !!! Just for this reason I give it 4 stars!!!
Compré este producto hace dos semanas, y recien llegué de mi primera caminata para probar el desempeño de la mochila, en realidad es muy comoda en la espalda, posee un tamaño perfecto, no es muy grande pero tiene suficiente espacio para guardar cosas como libreta de campo, brújula, abrigo, comida, capa para la lluvia, camara digital, lapiceros y mi piqueta (como estudiante de geología que soy), tambien mantiene las cosas secas en caso de lluvia, tal como lo experimente en el campo. Mi única queja, es acerca del reservorio con quick link, ya que el mio venía sin este dispositivo, y realmente no sé por qué?....así que recomiendo este producto, pero es mejor si lo compran de otro vendedor, uno que envíe el producto tal y como está descrito!!! Por esta razón le doy 4 estrellas!!!

I was looking for a hydration backpack that carries at least 2 liters of water and still has some extra space for carrying a snack and a few other necessities. Camelbak has several larger backpacks that fit the bill but they're pretty large and fairly expensive. The Cloud Walker is a nice balance with its reasonable price and yet some storage space.
The bladder and mouthpiece are the typical Camelbak high quality. Competitors just don't match up. It's worth a few extra bucks for Camelbak quality. They don't leak. They hang in the backpack. Just feels like very high quality.
Note that this particular backpack does not have the additional support/strap around the waist. It's not as heavy as the larger packs so that's not really important, but if you're going to carry a couple extra liters of water in the pack it won't be as comfortable as a pack with the additional support.
If you're new to Camelbak packs, you may find the lack of instructions to be a little frustrating. Plan to spend 15 minutes familiarizing yourself with the compartments and how to hang the bag.

I purchased this for a small trip to Hawaii last summer, and it was the perfect travel companion. Small, comfortable, light-weight, and it holds EVERYTHING. I used it as my carry on item for my flight, and my pack for our day hikes. Holds a full size beach towel, extra shirt, sunscreen, portable iPod stereo, box of granola bars, and a few cans of beer :-) Not to mention the hydro-reservoir. In addition, it has the clip on the front of the shoulder straps to keep it nice and tight to your chest so it doesn't slosh around while you wear it, as well as hold the bite valve in perfect reach of your mouth, so you don't have to hold onto it with your hands each time.
Water stayed cold ALL day long.
Just a tip- I got the "Moroccan Blue" and it is definitely more of a turquoise blue/green color than they show it on the site. Still love it though!

This backpack is great for it size, ligth weight and hydration pack. I used it regularly and it has become my carryon bag. I was just annoyed with my recent purchase because I decided to buy the blue one. For some reasons, the blue one doesn't have a rain cover. However, my black backpack has a rain cover. I believe that it should be mentioned in the description.

I bought this camelbak in green months ago for my boyfriends birthday, and turns out it works great! He loves it and always carries it with him. He even uses it sometimes as his backpack for school, which I find ridiculous, but he's okay with it :) It has a great size for water usage and is light and comfortable.
