The Volt is one of Camelbak's larger packs with the lumbar reservoir. The comfortable lumbar design along with 600 cubic inches of space makes the Volt perfect for three or four hour rides.

The most important design aspect of the Volt 13 LR Pack is its lumbar reservoir system, which keeps your water (the majority of your pack weight) on your hips for comfortable, efficient carry. The upper area of the pack carries 600 cubic inches of gear, so you can carry lunch and an extra layer along with your usual tools, spare tube, and whatnot.

Keeps the weight low - eases the back

    Great for MTBiking, especially if you have back problems.

    The bladder design keeps the majority of the weight low and steady on my back. It is stable too, I can use it on the freeride trails. It doesn't shift on jumps/drops.

    Yes, I'd recommend this to a friend.

    Hidden Treasure

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    With so many packs to choose from for a lightweight biking pack, this little hidden jewel is sooooo sweet. Since the water's coming along for the ride regardless, carrying it lower on the back for max stability and comfort makes total sense. I'll grab it for a day hike now and then too, but it's my grab-n-go for my regular mountain bike rides. The reservoir also features all of the newer technology and improvements I can appreciate like the screw cap fill port which requires a quarter turn and bam, it's open (not like earlier models that took Herculean effort to open), and the Quick Link system makes for easy tube removal. Plenty of storage in handy locations too.

    Love This Pack!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was undecided between the Volt and Mule - went with the Volt because it was more comfortable. But I have to admit, the Mule is a better looking pack. Now that I own the Volt and use it on most every ride, I'm glad I didn't judge this book by its cover. The way the Volt holds its water weight low on your back feels great - I don't feel like I'm wearing a pack. The side pockets are a feature on the Volt I didn't realize I would LOVE until I used it. I can put things in these pocks and get to them while I'm riding, no need to stop and take off the pack. I usually don't use the entire 3 liters for water, but it's nice to have the option for long rides.

    Aside from mountain biking, I also wear my Volt when I snowboard. Having the water low on my back mean it sits in the gap on the back of the chair lift - I don't feel like the pack is pushing me off the lift. The water in the tube does freeze if you're not constantly drinking, but that's a problem most hydration packs have in cold weather (I've been told the tube insulators don't help).

    The only negative with this pack is the heat on my back. It's not nearly as bad as other packs I've worn, but it would be great if CamelBak made a version of the Volt with the NV Back Panel system like the new Mule (are you reading this CamelBak designers??)

    My go to bag!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Light weight and comfortable. I also have a Camelbak Hawg and Mule and keep reaching for the Volt for Mtn. Biking and hiking. The straps twist on you while putting it on and I wish they had a bit more padding. Once on there is no shifting around like other bags especially when riding downhill. Spacious like the Hawg and very light!

    Killer bike bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use this pack as a biking and hiking bag and it has worked very very well for me. There is plenty of storage space for any bike parts you need to carry( I carry tire levers, a truing key, pump, patches, etc) and lots of pockets inside the pack to keep everything sorted out. The design is especially cool since the bladder is placed at the lower back to help support the lumbar area, the hip and chest clips help hold the pack sturdy so you can pedal hard without being thrown off balance. I have also used this pack for fishing and hiking, the pockets served me equally as well when I was carrying flys and miscellaneous fly fishing gear, I can easily just undo the chest strap and spin the pack around to grab whatever I need out of my pack. I would highly recommend this pack for anyone needing a versatile hydration pack
