CamelBak Mayhem Hydration Pack - 641cu in
The CamelBak Mayhem Hydration Pack 3L bladder is definitely one of the best hydration packs for longer trips, or when you are biking in the desert and need more water. There is a bunch of storage space too, so you can keep all of your gear, food and extra clothing in it.
The pack itself is made with durable nylon and burly zippers which works out great for adrenaline-crazed bike rides and rough gravel crashes in stride. Store your digital camera or music player in CamelBak's heavily padded and weather-resistant media pocket and bring home proof of your trail pandemonium in one piece. Stash an extra jacket and some bike tools in the main compartment. The Mayhem Hydration Pack's back panel ventilation system keeps you cool, and the comfortable harness and waist-belt stabilize your load as you bounce off boulders. Gear straps with quick-release buckles hold your helmet and shin guards on your way back up. Buy this Mayhem Hydration Pack for a price of $90.
DAKINE Amp 12L Hydration Pack - 700cu in
The DAKINE Amp 12L Hydration Pack helps you stay quenched and wrenched on long, dry, and remote rides where thirst or bike failure can ruin your day in a hurry. DAKINE hit this pack with a 3-litre removable reservoir with a Quick Disconnect hose, a fleece sunglass pocket for optimal optical storage, and a molded back panel that channels air to keep you vented and cool as a cucumber. Two interior sleeves hold your tubes or pump, and helmet carry straps store your brain bucket when it's not on your dome. Buy this hydration pack for a price of $90.
The North Face E Race Boa Hydration Pack - 95cu in
The North Face E Race Boa Hydration Pack features a cutting-edge wiring system which lets athletes compress the 1.5 liter reservoir by a simple, mid-stride, rotation of a dial to tap all of the bladder's contents until its dry. There's even a magnetic bite valve that keeps the hose in place and hydration in arm's reach, and a unique E-VAP harness system distributes heavy loads across the chest and away from shoulders. Buy this hydration pack for a price of $80.
