The Highwire makes hiking and travel easy on yourself.

Instead of lugging around your backpack and having to stop and pull out your water bottle every time you're thirsty, invest in the CamelBak Highwire 25 Hydration Pack. Its 100-ounce Antidote reservoir with Quick Link system keeps you well hydrated while you explore the backcountry or play tourist in your home town when the family comes to visit. The Highwire's low-profile design offers plenty of space for you to stash extra layers, a rain jacket, head lamps, maps, and some food. A comfortable load-bearing hip-belt has a spare pocket for you to put your camera or sunscreen, and its trekking pole and ice axe mounts make the Highwire extremely versatile when you want to take it off the grid.

  • Suggested load range: 10-25lbs (4536-11340g)

Like the pack

I picked this up on SAC, and am very happy with it. I also own the pre-Antidote version of the Alpine Explorer, and am torn between the two packs. The Highwire is just a tad lighter, but for the additional features and hookups on the Alpine Explorer I am willing to shoulder the extra weight. It's a great pack if you're dead set on shedding extra ounces however, so it depends on your personal preference. If I'm going above 13K feet, I'll typically go with the Highwire (those few ounces can make a difference at higher elevations when you're running short of breath). If I'm hiking at less than 13K feet, I'll stick with the Alpine Explorer.

The Antidote reservoir is a nice upgrade from the Omega - I have heard it has leaking problems, but I haven't experienced this yet despite multiple hikes with the bladder.

Yes, says so in the item description, "Its 100-ounce Antidote reservoir with Quick Link system..."

Would this pack suffice for a 4-5 week...

Would this pack suffice for a 4-5 week trip walking the camino in Northern Spain this June? Im bringing ONLY a camera, about 1L of medical/personal supplies, ONE change of outfit, underwear and socks; ONE guide book, a compact camera, one very skinny light sleeping bag that folds to the size of a pound of butter, a light waterproof jacket, a skinny pair of croc flipflops for evenings in hostels and thats basically it. I intend returning to the start of the walk to collect my car when its all over.

Responded on

it will be close and very possibly not enough. I use the Camelbak peak bagger for smaller outings and at 2090cu in I think I might be able to fit what you have described. I suggest something a touch larger, if you can swing it. Sounds like a fun trip!

Love this pack.

I recently picked this up from SAC. it is light weight and spacious. The 100 oz bladder kept me hydrated even after several hours on the trail. Plenty of space to store snacks, rain gear, or whatever else you feel like carrying. The back is well ventilated and very comfortable. I was a little worried about the durability of the material but it endured a weekend of abuse with no visible wear. Overall I am glad I chose this pack.
