CamelBak hydration packs are the original hands-free hydration backpacks, available for a wide variety of athletes and sports enthusiasts, developed according to scientific studies, with models for biking, running, outdoor, ski/board, hunting, women-fit, kid-fit and even bug-out kits under the outlaw series.
Originally developed to keep mountain bikers and motor cross riders well hydrated without taking their hands from the handlebars, CamelBak now offers a wide selection of models for other areas with many specialty series that fit the specific use of each athlete.
The reason why CamelBak offers so many different models and sizes is because scientific studies show that athletes tend to drink more fluids when they are readily available, and continuous consumption during activity will improve both performance and overall hydration for an overall healthier activity.
For men, the most popular model is the MULE with a 3 liter liquid capacity and a 9 liter cargo capacity including an MP3 water-resistant pouch for individual sports and for kids there ios the mini-MULE.
For women, the CHARM is probably the most popular, with the largest variety of colors available, holding 1.5 liters of liquid and a simple water-resistant ziplock pouch for keys and other small valuables.
CamelBak hydration packs differ in the amount of liquid they can carry according to the need of the user, from 28-50oz (0.8-1.5L), 70-72oz (2.07-2.13L) and 100oz (2.95L); as well as the cargo they can carry, (calculated in cubic inches) from 20-200, 400-750, 751-1000, 1200-1400, 1400 and up.
