Great for Mountain and Road Biking,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've used this CamelBak for mountain and trail biking in the Texas heat for 4-5 hours at a time, and it has always kept me hydrated and cool. Even when full, the padded pack still feels comfortable. The multiple waist and chest straps keep the pack firmly secured to my body. I usually put a couple ice cubes into the full reservoir, and at the end of a 4 hour ride, the water is still cool and sometimes even cold. The reservoir is easy to refill mid-ride, but I've never had to, even when I had another person sharing the water with me.
This compact pack won't carry a lot, but it has enough storage space for a cellphone, wallet, bike pump, granola bars, spare tube and bandana. It's great for rides where you will end up where you started, but don't expect it to carry enough stuff to go camping with.
