Most outdoor enthusiasts are familiar with the Camelbak brand. They are known for their high-quality hydration packs and sturdy construction bags. Whether hiking, biking, jogging, or walking, a Camelbak keeps your water cold and is an easy, hands-free way to carry your beverage. I have seen Camelbak bags being worn at concerts, the zoo, hiking, biking, and even in the mall.
The Camelbak Mule is one of the most popular styles of hydration bags. This bag is specifically designed for mountain bikers, but can be used for any outdoor enthusiast. The 100-ounce hydration bag will hold enough water to keep you from going thirsty all day. The backpack has 600 cubic inches of cargo space and is made of sturdy material that will withstand years of wear and tear. Plenty of extra pockets to hold any extras you may need to take on your outing, as well as a pocket for your MP3 Player.
Consumers always rave about the Camelbak Mule, stating that it cannot be beat. Bikers love that it is made specifically with them in mind and provides them with simple, hands free hydration all day long. The fact that the bag is designed to keep them cool takes this brand a step above the rest. The bite valve keeps the tube from leaking when not in use and is simple to drink from.
CamelBak Mule Hydration Pack Review
Personally, working in the Environmental field, I wore my Camelbak Mule hydration pack daily for months at a time. The bite valve makes it simple to grab a drink whenever you feel thirsty without having to stop for a break. An added bonus is the hydration pack sits against your back and can actually help to keep your body temperature down if you fill it with ice. As the ice melts, you have more water to drink! The bag was great to stash lunch in, and even to carry necessary supplies for work. Without my Camelbak Mule, I would have to carry multiple water bottles through the woods, which can get quite heavy. The design of these bags relieves some of the weight since the water weight is directly against your back. There were definitely 100 degree days where I drained my hydration pack before noon, but luckily I own two and have been known to carry both hydration packs in one bag!
The Camelbak Mule is a product that will not fail to impress time and again. You can purchase cleaning tablets and a hose brush to keep it clean. I have personally never had any issues cleaning my hydration pack, as I just rinse it out daily and give a weekly scrub with soap and water. Keeping the hydration bag clean will ensure that your Camelbak lasts a lifetime. The backpack’s sturdy construction will continue to last, even if you must purchase a replacement hydration bag. Or, if you are like me, you will want to purchase an additional hydration bag so you can carry two. Regardless of your activity level, this product is sure to please.
