    Camelbak backpack

    Discussion started by courtorder - Jun 11, 2005

    Yeah, so I want to get one of these, a few friends have them, and say they're great. Their claim to fame is that they carry(this one) up to 3 liters of water, in a pouch inside the bag; and have a straw that comes off of the strap.Peep

    I've heard that they arent terribly heavy, but i just order this one (below), so i'll post up somewhat of a review when I get it and try it out.

    It should weight about seven pounds with the water in it. Not bad at all. Does it have any insulation to keep the water cold?

    drinking out of a tube is kind of lame.
    unless of course you are doing some kind of extreme sport.

    camelbacks are definitely nice to have...I've taken the bladder out of mine and put it in my messenger bag before in an attempt to look like less of a clown.

    the bladders tend to absorb flavors though...so I have one for water and an old one for beer.

    Heh, I'm not really worried bout looking like a clown. I'll be riding a bike with it a lot of time, but also walking. And key, you gotta get em to sponsor youre 3X7R3M3 hammocking!

    SteveAustin: Are the (I guess this is the proper word)bladders easy to clean? Do I acutally need the accesories that were pushed on me?

    there have been times when I would have liked to have had the accesories...but, nah...not really needed.

    I just throw the bladder away after a year or two's use and get a new one. I don't think its as necessary if you're just using water in it.

    yeah, i got mine a couple weeks ago and forgot about this thread...i got the the hawg([​IMG]) im in love with the fuckin thing...sometimes space is a little cramped, when the bladder is full but not much of a complaint. to dry out the bladder, i simply turn it inside out...i washed it the first couple times and then decided it wasnt really necessary.
