Attention to Detail is Much Appreciated

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The best question I can answer for you is what made me decide CamelBak over other brands?...So here it goes:

It was CamelBak's attention to detail that told me their designers actually get out on the trails themselves and that's something I can appreciate.

Each shoulder harness has cut outs for the spout that allows you to choose which side you want to drink from, making it great for lefties. The Clip that holds the spout is adjustable up or down so you can attach it higher or lower. I like having my clip lower so that it doesn't flap around. I learned this the hard way with my GoPro Chest Mount. With the clip adjusted higher, my spout kept flapping around in front of my camera. I took some awesome footage coming down San Juan Trail. Got home, and wouldn't you know, that dang spout was right out in front of the lens. Bummer.

I also like to keep the spout connected lower on the shoulder harness because it's closer to my handlebars. A quick clip in for the spout and a short reach to the handlebars means my hands are where they are suppose-to be in less time.

I really appreciate that CamelBak included an adjustable Front Chest Strap so you can move it up or down where it crosses your chest. I keep mine lower so the pack stays more centered.

CamelBak includes small Velcro straps for each harness / belt that connects via clips so that any excess slack from the straps doesn't flap around in the wind (you don't want that slack to get caught on a branch and yank you off the bike!)

TIPS:
+ FREEZE!...your bladder when not in use, put the bladder in the freezer at home (keeps germs away).

+ If you are planning on a day with long climbs (4-5 mile climbs), pack smart, but keep the essentials (A heavy backpack leads to lower back pain for most people on long climbs, both hiking and biking)

+ MUST PACK a Small First Aid Kit. Take a look at Backcountry Item #AMK0124 and consider taking the contents out of their bag and storing them in the large center pocket of the M.U.L.E

Mule is a mule

Just bought my second mule after retiring my first after about 6 years of hard use. The pack does everything asked of it from day hiking up small creeks in search of trout to full days mountain biking.

Great Pack! Smaller Than Expected

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times


After reading reviews and comparing brands, I was excited to purchase this pack. I have taken this backpack on 4 hikes now love it!
At first glance, I took it out of the shipping box I felt like “that’s it??, it’s so tiny, maybe they sent the kids size by mistake and it not really the backpack meant for an adult to carry 100 oz of water”. The kids packs I saw in the store are about the same size, a 70 oz ones could most likely fit the 100 oz bladders/reservoirs too. Not many people really comprehend what 671 Cu means when ordering a pack.
It might be helpful to clear up that the size of the backpack does not really relate to the size needed to carry a certain amount of water. For example, I incorrectly assumed that this backpack would be larger than the backpacks carrying for instance the 70 oz bladders. It’s basically the same pack with a different size water bladder in it.
Given the size, I would like to mention that after I filled it up with water and put some small items in the bag, I actually am glad that I did not get the larger pack now because its very light and will be easier to carry for a long hiking trip. The bladder has a nice wide hole to fill it with water.
My only other complaint is that the mouth piece is not protected and it only came with one mouth piece. There is no cap on the mouth piece and there is no place to hook the tube on the straps or anything while you are hiking so it kind of just hangs down, swings back and forth and the place where you put your mouth touches everything in sight. For this reason, I had to bring tin foil along and a plastic baggie with a twisty tie to make my own mouth cover. It like getting a water bottle without a cap over the hole that you drink it.
Besides my complaints, I would recommend the pack as it carry my water and felt light weight. One more thing, the straps do not look so cool in woman, as the expose the belly clearly in photos! So just make sure to take off the pack before smiling and saying cheese!

Great Pack! Smaller Than Expected

Wonderful

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had the M.U.L.E. for about 1.5 years and used it on dozens of hikes in the Shenandoah and GW National Forest. It easily stores my schtuff, I've never run out of water, and the padding in the back is a plus.

Just what I was looking for

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this bag as a gift for my boyfriend to take on bikerides and hikes so he wouldn't have to take his bulky school backpack or a drawstring bag that irritates your shoulders. It was exactly what I was looking for. Fits snacks, jacket, keys, and phone with the water bladder filled but still maintains its slim profile! Looks bigger in the picture than it is on, but maybe that's just me. I'd definitely try to see one in person to make sure it is the size you want.

this bag is great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

perfect size. i dont often use the hydration bladder. I throw a nalgene in the front pouch or some tennis balls. I can fit a college rule notebook(tight fit), a novel, and a rain jacket in the main compartment. I got my keys, cellfone and chapstick in the smaller compartments.
