Getting my money's worth...

Lovin' the Lobo. More than enough, but not too much...if that requires explanation, then you haven't spent any time on the trails atop a mountain bike. Bought a cheaper version in the past, and got exactly what I paid for. This pack seems to be worth way more than the money I spent. I don't carry enough extra's to fill it's cargo spaces to capacity, which means that the water weight doesn't seem to be as much as what it's actually holding. Go get one.
Great hydration pack.
I've used a lot of hydration packs over the last several years (personal, and military issued) and this one by far is my favorite. I have more than enough room and water to hike with not only for myself, but for the dog as well (until he gets his own pack). Though I've only used it on some half day hikes, I'm sure it could hold up for a full day's worth of exploring. If you want bigger get a daypack.
Side note not so much on the pack, but the water bladder... replace the hose, something that can handle the temperature, and stays locked better.
Perfect for Mountain Biking
I have had this pack for 4+ years, specifically for mountain biking. Never have I wished I had something bigger / different. Holds 3L and will last a full day for me (not that I ride for a full day), but plenty of 25+ mile trips. It will hold a spare tube, bike tool, snacks, small pump, and some other things im sure I cannot remember. Durability is spot on, nothing has broken or worn out on me. Get it, you wont be disappointed.
Sweet water pack
Love it. Using this pack for mountain biking is great. I stuff my knee pads in the expanding pocket, put my phone and wallet in the top pocket, a powerbar and a multi tool in the lower pocket and still get a bunch of water in there!!! Looks tiny, is super light and you basically dont feel it on your back. Great!
Would this work for running? Would it...
Would this work for running? Would it bounce to much?
Hey Gerrick - you can run with this but if you're looking for a running-specific hydration solution I'd tend to be more interested in something like this:
Hydration vests do considerably better at keeping things tight and non-bouncy.
I plan to use this for skiing is there...
I plan to use this for skiing is there enough room to keep an extra goggle lens in the back?
Hey Thomas - yes - you can keep an extra lens for sure in the back. A larger pack (camelback or otherwise) that is hydration compatible might offer you more space to store winter gear if you're using the pack for skiing, but if you'd really just like a tiny pack that is for hydration and a few necessities, there is no reason why this one won't work.
This Camels Not For My Back

Ok, here we go. I bought the Lobo to replace a Mule that was worn out and converted to use for desert moto. So I had high hopes for the Lobo because of the....sort of split design. First and foremost, the bladder compartment does not have a loop for the bladder to hang from (at least mine does not). So guess what happens when you start sucking down water? You guessed it! It collapses on itself and that makes it tough to get those last few drinks out. Second: The main pocket doesn't hold too much as far as a base layer or whatever. I always roll with a pump, chain breaker, spare tire etc and it barely fits. Then, the two vertical zippers start backing and come unzipped during long rides. The fit is pretty good and it's a comfortable rig. I'm just not feeling the stoke on it because the design, while intriguing and seemingly innovative, is really not well thought out and under performs. And that's about it.
Great Pack for everything!

Anywhere from mountain biking to hiking to just traveling around town this pack is great. Holds everything and keeps you hydrated!
just another day with the lobo
this pack is light weight and holds just what you need for a hike, a bike, or whatever awesome stuff your doing.anytime i leave the city limits i've got this on my back
Great everyday pack
It's a great everyday pack with ample room for food, tools, spare tubes, and maybe even packable garments like a vest or arm warmers. The CamelBak bladder is the best out there.
This is a great pack for short day trips of hiking, biking, and skiing. Due to the way they designed this thing, When I used it for skiing, the water stayed cold and not frozen. The pack was easily integrate able into my Osprey pack. Worked like a champ. Easy to clean at the end of the day was another major plus as well.
for a minimalist type pack this is nice. has a couple of zippered/ divided pockets that can hold chews and another for some tools. I basically have an allen key set and car keys/ phone in the bottom pocket and put my food in the top. holds 100 0z h20 and enough munchies for a few hours of riding, but thats it.
Good for intended use.
Excellent quality product. I have a mule and wanted something a little lighter. I purchased this product for marathon MTB races 60 miles +. It is slightly smaller and lighter than the mule, but not by much. (Both have the 100oz capacity.) The Lobo IMHO is still a little heavy and bulky for racing. The external fill is a plus for quick feed zone stops. This would be excellent for a day adventure of play riding. I have no real complaints since it did everything it was advertised to do, but will be buying a Rogue come time for spring races. Now, get off the computer and let's ride.... Namaste
This is my go to bag for shorter rides. It carries a ton of water and enough food for about 3 hours (for me, I eat a lot). Not a lot of carrying space but that is not what this bag is about. Also not bad to run with if you are into that sort of thing.
The Lobo is a Go
Carry some gear, some grub, and lots of drink. Good, comfy shoulder straps and nice ventilation. You can't go wrong with the Lobo.
