Most of my old units are getting fairly worn, and the urge to buy a new version was just too strong.
I received this pack and immediately noticed the straps. If you look at most of Camelbak's other self contained carriers, you will see awkwardly narrow straps over the shoulder and under the arms. This 60430 carrier has COMPLETELY changed that. The straps are comfortably wide, but not so wide as to be obnoxious.
I also have very much enjoyed the new lid closure system. I don't know if other new units employ this lid/plug design, but it is the first time I have seen it. Instead of having to line up small plastic threads while not spilling the liquid inside, you now get a 1/4ish turn locking system with actual alignment arrows on the lid and rim. Quick turn and the unit seals up tight. Great improvement.
The bladder is the next thing that caught my attention. I looked very closely at the edge seals. I assume they use an RF type plastic welding. This new bladder had a significantly wider "weld" than previous generations. The bladder material is also quite tough when compared to my previous models. I am anticipating years of service.
Another item of note is the flavor of the water. I don't care what anybody tells me, but I can taste the plastic in the liquid (usually water) from traditional bladders. Perhaps it is only psychological, but this new bladder material does not leave a nasty aftertaste.
The tubing and mouthpiece don't seem to have departed from past models.
If I had to come up with a gripe, it would be when I pull the mouthpiece off and look at the ON-OFF valve internals. There is a BIG blob of lubricant. Having used a lot of this type of equipment, I'm sure it is a food grade silicone based lube. While I'm comfortable with the safety of the product, I still didn't like seeing a copious amount of it inside of the tubing. I quickly removed some of it with a Q-tip.
All in all, I love this pack. I'm sure that if others purchase it, they will love it as well.
Well it showed up today in a mangled package (Thanks, DHL?!?) and it wasn't really what I expected.
The specs list it as having a wide filler mouth--it doesnt.
Mounting the bladder in the carrier isn't easy, certainly if it needs to be removed for cleaning or filling. It will be a REAL PITA in both events.
But several pluses: you can store the shoulder straps and mount it via D rings to your armor MOLLE (my primary and intended use) and the carrier is a proper camouflage for my region, although I'd prefer Coyote tan. Meh.
Overall it appears to be stout quality but I think this must be an old run with the older, smaller, filler port as all the latest I've seen have the LARGE fill opening, which I'd MUCH rather prefer!
All in all, I'm not convinced I will keep it. If I do and can get past the idiosyncrasies I'm sure the Name Brand will hold up as all my Camelbak products have and do.
Update: The reason you buy camelbak is for the quality. The zippers are tough and there is back-up Velcro if the zipper ever does fail you. I sneak a knife and a few granola bars in that zippered area and they fit just fine. It also keeps the water pretty cool for a long time which is nice. You'll just have to deal with the warm water in the hose for that first sip. Love the bite valve cover. It keeps all the dirt and bugs out perfectly. The little d-hooks on the straps are perfect for attaching a camera or whatever else you want to add on.
Only thing I'd change is having a better way to keep the hose tucked in, but I just tuck it across my chest and under the straps.
There are some things that I would change, however. First and foremost, the tube has no obvious route to your mouth without sticking out in some way or another. I secured it to one of the rings with a carabiner, and while this keeps it from flopping around haphazardly, it doesn't leave much slack to drink from. So, I have to dip my head to the side to get a drink. Meanwhile, my wife's new hydration system has a magnetic connection to secure it when not needed (but no cap, so it got dirty). The perfect product would have both systems. A cap/valve mouthpiece with a magnetic connection to the chest strap to keep it out of the way.
The other issue is the straps themselves. They have an upper chest strap, but it lacks a lower waist strap, so if you plan on being any more active than walking it WILL bounce and slide all over the place. We tried a bit of trail running, but I had to stop because the Camelbak was just out of control. I'm trying to find a way to attach some straps to lower rings to work around this. If not, I'll have to buy another problem.
Overall, if the two issues above aren't a big deal to you, then it's probably a 5/5 product in your case. In mine, however, I took 2 stars off for 2 major issues with the design that should be fixed.
