There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.
The tube comes long which is great. You can cut it down if you want, or route it differently to take up the slack (what I did). I have it exiting the right hole, then tied to the D-rings to come out over my left shoulder. There's an opening on the left side to reverse this depending on which side you like your tube on. I'm a left-side tuber. To keep the end from flapping around, I'd tuck it into the chest or side strap. You can also put a lightweight plastic beener on one of the D-rings and put the mouthpiece through that to hold it in place when running/moving. Works fairly well but it can be awkward to retrieve or put back, especially if you are wearing other gear. Just something I tried that might work for somebody else. I mostly use it for obstacle course racing so I've been experimenting with different setups, using electrical tape to hold it in place temporarily and zip ties for more permanent attachment. Just don't crank down hard or it'll compress the tube.
The bite valve is tight, no leaks and I love having a cover on it. Perfect for mud runs to keep your mouthpiece clean. The on/off valve is a great feature as well. The neoprene does keep the tube a little bit cooler than it would be if it was bare, and adds a nice protective layer for the tube, helps it from getting caught up. Speaking of that, the adjustments to the straps have Velcro at the ends so you can roll them up and tidy the ends. I still used some e-tape to loop them back to the straps to prevent them from swinging, but the built-in "Ranger bands" are a great feature and shows the attention to detail Camelbak puts into this product.
There are D-rings up each side which are great for attaching beeners, paracord or other items. I wish there was a little PALS/MOLLE webbing on the lower back, big enough to fit a small IFAK-sized pouch, but I was able to ziptie a small pack to the D-rings which works well and doesn't bounce too much. I'm sure a tailor could sew in MOLLE if you provided the material. I've also been able to stuff a sleeve of Shotbloks, lip balm, a few squares of moleskin in a baggie, protein bar, and other small items into the top section (where the fill hole is) and into the pocket around the bladder, just be careful with this anything with a sharp edge could of course damage the bladder if stored there. Bottom line, while there is no designated storage space on this pack, you can make it work with a little ingenuity, or leave all that off and have a slick-sided hydration pack without the added weight of webbing and pockets.
***EDIT: Thinking there had to be one with MOLLE I did a search and sure enough, the Camelbak Ambush has exactly what I'm talking about. So if you want an integrated pouch and MOLLE, that's your best option I do believe:
And if you're REALLY going big, the M.U.L.E. has even more storage, with 100oz (3L) capacity:
Overall I'm very pleased with this and would not hesitate to buy it again. I use Camelbak Elixir electrolyte/salt tabs for longer runs to prevent cramps and they leave no residue in the bladder which is even better. You could use similar products like Nuun. The 3-liter capacity is awesome, I'd rather carry more water and not need it than not have enough. I do have a smaller 1L pack which hasn't been used since I got this one.
For our military and police users, the fabric (Codura) has not been treated for IR reflectance. Also, there is a rather large Camelbak logo patch on the back, but it can be removed with a stitch puller or fine knife. There is one row of Velcro loop (the soft side) for name strips or other patches. The bladder is baffled, but there is still some sloshing when running, rolling, jumping, etc., which of course gets worse as the pack empties, even if you try to compress it and push the air out there's still some. That said, I could see this being very useful on extended patrol or overwatch type missions where you would expect to be out for a while and need to pack your own hydration.
If you are planning a long hike, or even a short one, GET THIS Camelbak. You can thank me later.
