The name says it all: the Classic is the quintessential bike hydration pack, now updated with a Crux reservoir for a faster flow of water.
I was very excited to receive this product after much review of options on the market, and decided to go for the brand name rather than less expensive alternatives. I tried to use the CamelBak on a mild hike in a nearby park with my dog but was unable to even leave my house due to the backpack leaking so severely. I took the cap off multiple times to ensure the lid and ring were properly secured. I was unable to use the CamelBak and unfortunately am outside of the return window. I would not recommend this product as the amount of water sloshing out of it with gentle walking leaves your back and shorts soaking wet.
I love Camelback. I have used them for years. I ordered this one for my partner to take on desert bike rides. It works great, keeps fluids cold, and doesn't leak...just like every other Camelback product I have owned.
I bought this as a replacement for my 11 year-old 70 ounce Classic. I needed a little more water capacity since moving to a dry climate. Overall, it's a decent value, being as lightweight and comfortable as the original Classic. The claims of getting 20 percent more water per sip is just marketing nonsense, as is the shutoff valve located on the Bite Valve holder. I'm not going to be fumbling with an on/off valve every time I want to take a drink, and if I want 20 percent more water, I'll just take two sips. The Bite Valve holder is angled at 45 degrees instead of 90 degrees, and I find that makes it awkward to use, but that's not too difficult to overcome. My biggest complaints are that the end of the Bite Valve is leaking after only the second usage, and I cannot find contact information from the seller to request a replacement. I guess I'll just swap out the Bite Valve from my 11 year-old Classic.
I took this on a trip where I planned to do a fair amount of walking. I have taken a water bottle on trips in the past and it's been annoying always having something in my hands. This was much more comfortable. It also holds more water than most water bottles so I wasn't as worried about running out. I'm a big guy, so I was a little worried about this fitting, but I was able to adjust this to fit comfortably.
I bought this to replace a Camelbak that I loved but ended up giving to my daughter. The very first time using it leaked. It seems to be leaking around the cap but not from the cap. It is as if the bladder was not sealed properly around the base of the cap. I have never had an issue with any other Camelbak I’ve owned. The others that I have owned have been purchased in store from legit companies. After reading other reviews with this same issue it makes me wonder if this is an authentic Camelbak or some cheap ripoff.
Camelback does it again! Awesome value for this pack. The space is perfect for a day out mountain biking as there is just enough room for some small tools and an extra tube. Just the right amount of water and space for a light cover up if needed. So happy with this.
I like this pack, it does everything I need it to do, but I really wish it had the newer bladder where you can remove the drinking hose, cleaning this thing super annoying.
Wish it had room for a second bladder, and pockets for other things. My husband purchased an off brand version and it had room for these things at half the price. The only thing I prefer (and just slightly) about the Camelback is the drinking spout itself. It does everything you expect it to, but without any room for other things, or a second bladder, you are probably better off purchasing a cheaper off brand version.
Plenty big enough for my needs as I'm currently only doing short runs. Other reviews have mentioned the lack of a decent seal on the cap but this is due to it not being sealed properly by the user. This has happened to me once or twice but if you turn the cap anticlockwise until it drops down then turn clockwise to seal there's no leakage and filling is made easier with the built in handle. I was going to only give 4 stars for storage but this is for carrying water not hiking equipment and the storage is adequate for a phone and keys. Overall a good quality product that does its intended job well.
I understand why people loan about the seal, it's user error, I've done it a few times that I've not got the lip on properly, excellent size pouch could be bigger but you'll squeeze a phone and keys into it, straps are good size is perfect and I've found it good all long distances rides very happy, if you need space to carry extras like puncture repair stuff and other niggles buy a bigger rucksack version this is purely for hydration.
Bought by accident thought it was a rucksack with a water bottle feature, rather than just a water bottle rucksack. Works well with good capacity.
My dad loves it. Uses it for walking and bird watching.
I couldn’t believe the bad reviews for this as my other camelback has been great, so I bought one anyway. I filled it and closed it, and water just gushed out of the filling hole. I tried again and it sealed but then it failed another two times before sealing partially. Seems like the seal is temperamental or just unreliable. I’ve returned mine and will try another model with a different bladder.
Kept leaking (tried all the usual methods to stop) and just tended to flop about on my back making it uncomfortable. Sent back today, shame really because I've always used camelbak and rated them highly.
My bag leaks everywhere really unhappy would re-order as really wanted product but has anyone else had same issue? Really want to speak with the seller!
Very good. Pocket was not as big as I expected. However brilliant product
Es la versión más básica pero vale la pena por el precio.
Gran producto! Mi actividad es el motociclismo (offroad) que tengo que estar hidratado todo el tiempo, la válvula de seguridad es perfecta para que no derrame el liquido aun teniendo tanta vibración y movimiento como lo tienes practicando este deporte! El abastecimiento es totalmente amigable, puedes recargar sin necesidad de sacar la bolsa de la mochila! Y la tapa es muy cómoda y grande para recargar muy rápido!
Gut zu tragen, guter Wasserdurchfluss, gut zu reinigen.
Recibí el producto correctamente, no se como funciona ni nada por qué al momento de abrir el paquete me di cuenta de que estaba usado y que venía agua en la bolsa aun estando sellado el paquete, lo peor que me ha pasado.
Llegó antes de lo esperado y la calidad es la esperada de esta marca, gran capacidad y la bolsa de hidratación de alta calidad
Praktischer Rucksack, mit großer trinkblase, zum einfachen befüllen.
it was very comfy, but no place store anything
