A minimalist hydration pack for 1.5 hours in the saddle or on the trail.

Head out for a quick after-work run, hike, or bike ride with the minimalist Camelbak Hydrobak Hydration Backpack.

A small external pocket holds your cell, indispensable multi-tool, or energy goo while reflectivity features allow others to spot you in low light conditions.

durable but could use a chest strap

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bring this on longer runs, and have used it during the Spartan and Tough Mudder races. It has NO wear and tear on it at all, except some mud in the seams. I have put the pack through the wash a number of times. The ONLY thing I don't like is lack of a chest strap. When I used it for running, it would bounce. I "fixed" this by adding clips to the straps and clipping it across my chest, and want to eventually add separate chest straps, but lets face it I have had it for several years and have not done this yet! It needs to be tightened a lot when I run, but overall more comfortable than a hydration belt.

Hydrate or Die.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

With my son’s birthday approaching, I asked him what he wanted. His answer? A CamelBak like mom and myself. My answer for him? Enter the CamelBak Hydrobak.

Material: When first handling the Hydrobak, you can immediately tell that it is durable. Not drag through the mud all day durable, but take on a hike or mountain bike ride without worry if a stray branch or a spill onto your back might rip through. It feels great, looks great, and the mesh straps feel sturdy as well.

Fit: Sizing was spot on for an average sized seven year-old. It wasn’t too big in any area, and the straps had enough adjustability for use now all the way through to his adult years (if it lasts that long). I also tried it on, and the fit was great, with no feeling of being constrained.

Features: Although a pretty simply hydration pack, the Hydrobak still exhibits a few useful features. It comes with a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) Coating, which will keep your back dry when the rain starts to fall. It includes a small zippered pocket perfect for your cell phone, or in my son’s case, a few Pokémon cards for review after a good hike. For extra safety, CamelBak included reflective features. The Air Mesh back panel helps keep your back vented during the hike, and allows your back to breathe during a hot day. Probably a good thing to mention is the reservoir itself. At 1.5 liters, it is big enough for a smaller hike or ride (even my son drained it fairly quickly), however, if you are going to be out for an extended period of time, I would suggest bringing along a water filtration system to stop and refill along the way.
At the end of the day, you’ll be happy, hydrated, and comfortable while using the Hydrobak. From youth to adults, from morning hikes to an afternoon bike ride, you simply can’t ask for more, while still spending less.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or to place an order. I would be happy to provide you with a personalized experience here at Backcounty!

Much better than a backpack of water!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this on hikes, runs, walks, skips, hopscotch games, and whatever else I may need a quick pick me up to quench my thirst. The only bad thing I have to say is i'm already not a great runner so the extra 2 or so pounds of water seem like I am carrying a water tower but other than that (an that's my own fault) it is a great tool to used instead of carrying your water bottle and just as easy to share.

almost perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

this is like having a water bottle that you don't remember having. it's almost perfect. I got it to hike in the mountains of colorado when all you need is a little water. After using it all summer I plan on using it all winter under my ski coat. you can barely tell you have it on. the only draw back is its a little small. Sometimes small is good!
