When two packs become one.
Much like Jekyll and Hyde, the CamelBak Blowfish Hydration Pack changes size and shape for no apparent reason. Well, actually the reasoning is quite sound: you can match your pack to the task at hand. Although it won't have you murdering random people in the streets of London or testing new grounds of chemistry, the Blowfish will have you pedaling like a monster, a hydrated monster that is. Zip it down for short rides or hikes, or let it expand if you need to bring along a jacket or a big lunch. Once lunch is over, you can zip it down from 1100 to 670 cubic inches of space so you don't have unwanted backpack material flopping around. An Air Channel back panel and Air Mesh harness allow air to circulate through your shoulders and back, preventing moisture built up and discomfort. Pack your bike tools, music, and phone in the bike tool organizer and media pocket respectively while the nylon, diamond Clarus, and polyester protect your stuff with a water-blocking DWR and PU treatment. Both the front and back sport reflective panels, as well as a blinker tab, for extra safety when cruising nocturnal streets.
Though not quite the potion Dr. Jekyll was seeking, this two-liter
Antidote reservoir will cure your thirst for about two hours on the
ride. At the turn of a cap (a quarter turn to be exact), you can open or close the reservoir, refilling and securing it again in seconds. Center baffling and a sleek design prevent your water from jostling about inside your pack while running, hiking, or hitting the park. Since last year, CamelBak's go-to reservoir system has actually lost some weight, reducing bulk in the fill port and offering you that much more convenience.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The camelback comes as it is described, great space to store thing and capability to unzip and get more space in main bag.
This hydration pack comes just how it looks. A little smaller but not that big of a difference. Has a lot of extra pockets, and water container is in its own pocket. Extremely light weight, and bright.
I love this thing!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is the first camelbak I've ever owned but I have no complaints so far. I've been using this frequently for the past 6 months with no issues. I'd say the value is pretty good considering the space you get in this thing. When expanded, I can fit a set of fox launch pro knee/shin pads, elbow pads, a spare tube, tools, phone, hand pump, extra t shirt, etc and still have a little bit of space left. It looks kinda funny when blown up but it's a pretty cool feature, in my opinion. You grt thr bets of both worlds.
The material itself is durable and I feel it should last for quite some time. The bladder may be small for some but just pack some water bottles and you're good to go. It has two pockets - a large one and a smaller one with two interior nets for little stuff.
