Good pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had this bag for 3 years. Used it for carrying climbing gear to and from the crag. Stuffed it with gear. could fit everything but the rope and shoes and sometimes harness. Been using it recently for my work pack but its not quite big enough and the zipper has started to fail and the bladder leaks at the connection to the hose. Thats really all im disapointed about. But this thing has taken some bad beatings with some falls while snowboarding. The bladder absorbed some otherwise painful back slapping falls and the rigid back has kept the contents from injuring my back. Great for carrying my snowboard. Just wish the zippers were tougher.

I have had this bag for 2 years and have thrown everything at/ into it.. the best part about it is that the mouth piece has its own zippered pocket to keep it dust free and out of the way. It is just big enough, and the straps allow for many carry options. I have used it for skiing, down hill Mtb and day hiking, it has saved my back from scrapes or worse on 2 occasions, I have crashed hard enough on it to feel the bladder squish but it has never popped. a couple of things to note, the material where the pack rubs against the lower part of your back is pretty thin and will be the first part to wear out, also the side pockets are upside down, handy for accessing them with the pack still on, but they make you paranoid that you will loose something out of them. got mine on sale for $60

Want water? Need to carry some stuff?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently replaced both a Dakine Heli Pro & CamelBak Scorpion bag with this pack. Less room than the Dakine, a bit more than the Scorpion. And more than enough to be perfect.

Comfortable to wear all day when loaded with water, with enough pockets and organizers to carry what I need: tools, first aid kit, extra layer, extra goggle lens, snacks, etc.

And did I mention you can stap a board to the back and carry it comfortably? (Especially if you're taller than me.....)

Practically bombproof - I've wrecked in pretty awesome fashion with this bag - and only ever broken a few granola bars.

Great first time pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is the first season I've actually carried a pack while snowboarding, and so far, it's a great addition to my gear (and holds my gear)!

I mainly wanted a hydration pack so that I could always have water and not have to deal with lockers on the mountain/jam my pockets full of stuff.

I was a bit worried about the amount of stuff it would hold based on some of the reviews, but it's been perfect for my needs. I stuff all my hard goods (tools, lock, stone, etc.) in the probe pocket. My goggles go in the other side pocket (yes, the bottom release is annoying). In the main compartment, on travel up to the slopes, I can fit my gloves, kneepads, couple pairs of socks, neck gaiter, beanie, snacks, and other small items pretty easily. Once I get that stuff on, I put my walking shoes (flat) in the pack, and it still has room for light extra layers like Underarmour. If I really wanted to, I could probably jam a hoodie in there as well. If the pack isn't super full, you could probably get a helmet in there, but I haven't tried.

Wearing it on the mountain, it's pretty comfortable and you don't really notice it on, and as long as you're ok with wearing a pack on the lift (i.e. not terrified if your back isn't touching the backrest), then it's a great pack.

Back country snowboarding and hiking.

I really like the 100oz hydration pack on this. The quick release drink tube is a great addition over previous models. The only drawbacks to this is the zippers for the goggle pocket and poles open from the bottom. While good for keeping the poles in the bag (I have used it only for shorter hiking pole storage instead of avalanche poles) the goggle pocket also opens from the bottom meaning if that's where you keep your cellphone , GPS or other items if you open the zipper on the trail anything in that pocket falls out! The drawstring inner pocket ripped the first day I used it so it could use a better stitching and interior fabric although the exterior fabric is very durable. Seems to carry a snowboard quite well although I have not used it for a long hike doing that yet (too early for snow). Pricing on this was great (on sale) so I'm not complaining plus Camelbak has a lifetime warranty on all packs. It is comfortable to wear and makes a good back country day pack. I would recommend.

Is the secondary color the bright white...

Is the secondary color the bright white as pictured, or a different color? Based on other websites, it's really a dull gray. I wanted to verify before purchasing.
