    Power the Adventure.

    You can rest when the vacation's over. So, rather than sleeping in, get up and grab your trekking poles, snacks, and the Camelbak Crux Water Reservoir, so you can get to the trailhead before the parking lot fills up. An ergonomic handle provides easy, one-handed fill when you're still trying to clear the sleep from your eyes. A baffled design keeps the reservoir's profile low, so you don't have to pull everything out of your pack to slip the reservoir inside. And when finally do hit the trail, the Crux's innovative construction keeps water flowing to ensure you stay hydrated from the initial hike in to that last mile when you're blissfully exhausted from a satisfying day on the trail.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Used on motorcycle trip through Southeast Asia. Must have when in humid hot conditions! Fit great in my pack and had no issues with nozzle. I have continued to enjoy it on hikes and snowboarding.

    Solid construction

      Solid construction. Easy to use and clean. Keeps your water safe and ready all day. The wide mouth cover makes it easier to dry out and clean. Highly recommend users not put colored or flavored beverages in this unless you want to taste it/stain it for the near future.

      Tough & Easy To Use

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I took this on my first backpacking trip around the Timberline trail and absolutely loved it! It's easy to fill on the go. I found the 1.5L works great for long runs as well. I use this reservoir in my Osprey backpacking pack and my Camelbak day pack.

      This bladder is awesome

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is the best bladder I have ever had. All other bladders that I have worked with have leaked or had some other problem. This one is free of problems. It is really easy to fill it up with the plastic handle that is connected to the mouth, the water flow is really smooth and the water comes out easy, it is also a really great size where it will fit in every pack and has enough water for mountain biking or a long hike, but not too big where it takes up tons of space or adds excessive weight. I would recommend this to anyone.

      Tough Bladder

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used this bladder many times. Easy to clean and is pretty efficient from a size perspective. Fits great in my Black Diamond, Magnum 16L day pack. Must have for summer hiking.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This bladder has gone through 20+ trips with me and it's always been solid. Doesn't leak, smell like plastic, or give me trouble being able to place it in my bag. super solid bladder and I love the mouth piece for it as well, easy to lock and unlock.

      Classic and so much better than others

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought another option from another brand that was cheaper. I wish I hadn't. This is the same great material/workmanship of the bladder I've been rocking for 11 years in my MULE pack. Save yourself some aggravation and just get the real thing.

      Go to backpacking reservoir

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I'm a big fan of the slim design of the crux water reservoir! Perfect when you already have a weekend pack that's loaded to the brim and still need to find a way to squeeze a water reservoir in. I've been using this a couple months now and have not had any issues!

      Great for longer hikes and backpacking

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

      This reservoir is great, I have the Crux in a 1.5 and 2L, but recently purchased the 3L for longer hikes or when I know I need to carry water for the dogs. It gets the job done! Just know that this reservoir will be heavy when it is full since it is meant to carry a lot of water, I would go with a smaller size if you are looking for something fit for shorter day hikes.

      Fits my women's CamelBak Aurora 5L

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

      I got the 2L bag for my CamelBak Aurora 5L Backpack and it fits great. Haven't ran with it yet but its good to go. I made sure to clean it out to get the plastic taste out before using it. I recommend this for any CamelBak hydration backpack bag. I don't think they are as universal for all backpacks as Platypus bags but still great!


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

      I purchased the 3L. This is a great size for an all day hike. It has a divider within the bladder which can make drying it out a bit more difficult, but nothing bad enough that it would prevent me from using it.

      Much improved

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I like this reservoir much better than the previous generation. The extra flow is nice and the previous generation had a 1/4 turn lid that was prone to leaking. This one should not leak at all. I am very happy with it. The new valve at the bite value is taking some getting used to but that is mostly because I have used the old style for over a decade. The new valve style is good looking and easy to use but different than what I am accustomed too.

      Nice design

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The new handle and large opening make filling and cleaning this reservoir simple while allowing you to get rid of excess air quickly and seal the lid with ease. I was worried about fitting three liters in my smallest hydration pack but this reservoir fit without issue. The lock on the mouth piece helps ensure against leaks and the larger bite valve and wider hose help increase water flow for faster hydration.
