Hit pay dirt with the all new Motherlode. A redesign of a classic, the new Motherlode has the cargo and organization you've come to love, but now includes a 3L, 100oz Mil Spec Crux Lumbar Reservoir that delivers 25% more water per sip and moves your water lower, increasing your stability and comfort. Perfect for multi-day missions, the Motherlode has over 35L of cargo, tons of gear organization, and our new laser cut Mountain MOLLE, making it fast and easy to attach additional accessories.
Prior to purchasing this pack, I owned a HAWG and a Sparta, but I wanted something bigger for weekend-length hikes. I felt that the BFM would be just too big for my taste, so I tried out the Motherlode. The five stars are for the quality of the product itself - Camelbak makes amazing packs!
Perfect for what I do! Fits a large 3 ring binder, rain jacket, snacks, all my EDC essentials, and a MacBook Pro. I keep my laptop in the back zippered bladder pocket for added protection from the foam lining and also easy access. Tons of pockets makes for better organization! I like that the space grows tall rather than outward so it’s more conformed to my body and more evenly distributed the weight. Great pack!
CamelBak always has well made packs. This one is my new travel pack over the hawg
This backpack is built better than anything I’ve ever had. Speedy shipping and a lifetime guarantee on it.
The original Motherlode is far more sturdy. This is a good bag, but the last original lasted a decade of deployments, I do not suspect the new one can.
