When you run the show, you command respect. When it feels like the trail is doing your bidding, your riding partners will follow your line. If you conducted business as ruthlessly as you ride, you would be called "The Don." Camelbak's new, revamped, all-mountain is headed up by The Don All-Mountain 100 oz. Pack; a title that invokes reverence, veneration, and maybe a little bit of fear as well. In this case, however, The Don is on your side, and your protection money is a wise investment in cycling pleasure. The Don is a large yet totally manageable pack that holds a 100-oz reservoir and has 1070 cu. in. (17.53 L) of cargo space. Even though this pack is big enough to hold almost every piece of cycling gear you own, it's remarkably lighter than last year's Outlaw-series packs, yet still tough enough to shrug off rocks, branches, and dirt. The Don was designed to comfortably carry your full-face helmet, arm and knee guards, and has pockets for safely stashing your eyewear, MP3 player and/or digi cam, and a secret, quick-access side pocket. There's also a dedicated lift pass/ID window, making it easy to rack up the laps. Once The Don is packed like a pocket full of heat, use the four load-handling compression straps to cinch it all up and keep it under control. Once you get to the top of your mountain and point it back downhill, The Don becomes part of your body, letting you finesse and power your way through rock gardens, berms, and drifty turns like you were wearing a skin suit.
So much versatility in a small space.

If you think this bag just carries water, then you're wrong. I bought this bag to use for school as well as for skiing. It more than gets the job done. I can carry two decent size textbooks, a binder, and my laptop in this CamelBak. It's very durable and at the same time aesthetically appealing. I would recommend this bag for everyday use as well as for outdoor sports.
Nice bag. Well thought out. I like it

I like the soft goggle pouch and the padded water proof pouch. There are an extra set of clips for the full face helmet to keep it in place. Lots of pockets, decent amount of space.
