    Lots of space for the long haul. Big reservoir.

    Pros
    One of my personal favorites. I like when they make these in earth tone colors. Blends in to the environment better with the earth tones

    Cons
    None

    Get it! this pack won't quit. no matter how hard I crash, or how many trees I strike the thing looks almost brand new. I use this thing on damn near ever ride even when Im on my cross bike. I have only run out of water twice since 3 liters should be enough for most people. Quality you can expect from the higher end camelbaks

    Pros
    Durable
    Comfortable
    Holds everything I need and don't need
    3 Litres of water (6 if you bring a 2nd bladder)

    Cons
    too much room

    If you want cold water:
    Fill with ice just a little more then half full. Fill water to edge of opening. It will stay cold for at least 3 hours even on a 100 degree day in Oklahoma.

    Pros
    Holds enough water for a 3 to 5 hour MTB ride or all day hike. plenty of room for any gear you would need for either.

    Cons
    None!!

    Beast of a pack.for long rides this hauls the gear. Mil spec version is a best buy for sure

    Pros
    Perfect pack for an all day session. The new mil spec version has the antidote bladder with a baffle.no more sloshing! And 500D condura fabric, molle webbing, ,padded back and straps. Hydrate or die!

    Cons
    None

    I would definitely purchase this pack again, if I ever destroy my current one.

    Pros
    I am still using the same backpack! Durability great. Size perfect for the day trip, for any inclement weather change. Use this for not only mtb, but also for nordic skiing year round. Love the straps to tie on rain gear to the outside.

    Cons
    H2O bladder is a bit large, adding weight, if not careful with how full you fill it. Wics out most moisture, however at this age, I suppose I should not expect too much, but a rain shell would be a nice feature.

    I have put this pack through tons of abuse with absolutely 0 problems. Hands down the favorite pack I've owned.

    Pros
    Great quality, plenty of compartments.

    The newer models may have fixed some of the weight issues and pocket design issues but the old design just made this pack a beast. Not bad but DONT pay MSRP.

    Pros
    Tons of space for almost anything you could imgaine.

    Cons
    Heavier than other equal sized pack on the market. Poor use of pocket space, IMO.

    The biggest thing Camelbak makes in a bike specific format right now. If you are looking to do some back country riding this is your pack. If you need more space, you might want to think about buying a hauler instead. Not for your weight weenie crowd but the fit is still snug and you'll forget how much you have in your pack.

    Pros
    Massive storage space. This thing is more like a hiking backpack with water storage capabilities. Rain cover is a nice extra as well. The NVIS system is a good upgrade over the previous model and really helps minimize sweat.

    Cons
    Much like the other reviewer, I can't fit my helmet in the expanding holder.

    Great backpack, plenty of space as long as you don't need to carry items larger than a 2 litre bottle. Chuck everything in it once and you're set forever :)

    Pros
    Holds a lot of water (only ever ran out one particularly hot day). It also has pockets everywhere, and the side pockets are large enough to hold a set of handlebar grips, multitools, and lights. Could easily fit a spare tyre tube in each of them.

    The waist support is completely removable (velcro tabs hold it to the bag) and most straps have elastic to keep the excess out of the way.

    Cons
    The helmet holder doesn't hold a helmet with a visor as securely as I'd like. The main cargo pocket also doesn't expand much, can't carry large items in it.

    Great pack. This is my main pack as it has the room to carry everything I need for a solo ride and extra space for other peoples stuff on group/family rides. I like the soft lined pocket for my mp3 player or cell phone and it has headphone wire guide.

    Pros
    Comfort, reliability, storage capacity

    Cons
    nothing

    This Camel back is awesome! It has tons of storage space along with a huge bladder. It makes for the perfect mountain biking pack and is one of the most comfortable on the market. Multi-tools, rain gear, a first aid kit, patching gear, and all of the stuff in your wallet can be fit into this pack, even when it has a full bladder. I love it, use it as my mountain biking pack, and was willing to pay a little more to get the cream of the crop. I would recommend it for anybody who loves to hike, geocache, and especially mountain bike!

    I use the H.A.W.G. for both mtb'ing and motocross (used to race desert). This is by far the best all around pack I have owned. Some other hydration packs are to small for a long ride in some serious heat.

    Plus there is ample room for a spare tube, tool(s), small pump (or CO2 cartridges), snack, cell phone first aid, and other essentials one shouldn't be without while on the trail.
