The HydroBak 50 oz
June 18, 2013
An excellent product with quality construction. This is my first Camelbak Hydrobak - in the past I have always used a Camelbak bladder inserted into a larger ruck. I think it will take me awhile to get used to a small set-up like this. I have a medium frame and it feels a little tight. I will use it for distance running and off-road biking. Fully loaded (50oz) you barely notice the rig on your back.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
First experience with Camelbak
September 27, 2010
I'm a runner who decided to try a Camelbak because I tried a hydration belt and found it to be uncomfortable (and the bottles were difficult to maneuver while running). I used my Camelbak on an 18 mile run and I have to say that I am extremely satisfied. It is so much better and easier than the hydration belt. There are no bottles to deal with and I can hardly tell I'm carrying it. At first I thought the sound of the water sloshing around behind me would get on my nerves, but after the first half mile I didn't even notice it. I was also a little worried about chafing, but that wasn't an issue at all. I would have liked some instructions (I am below average when it comes to figuring out how to put things together), but after working with it for a few mintues I had it figured out. The bladder is pretty easy to wash and dry since it has such a large opening. I would recommend this to any runner who doesn't like dealing with the hydration belts.

This product was just what I was looking for. Something small and not cumbersome for a 5 - 6 mile run. Took it out and it was just right. For a bigger person you would probably have to open the straps all the way. I have a fairly large chest (Thanks P90x) and I still had room. See you on the trail......

I actually intended to get a bigger Camelbak but ordered this instead. I haven't been able to use the product much yet, but so far, I'm very happy with the size. So far, it's very comfortable when riding my bike long distances. Am excited to use in the near future for more biking!
