In it for the long haul? Then CamelBak's H.A.W.G. is the pack for you. With 1,403 cubic inches of storage space, there's room for almost everything you'll need to successfully complete a mission. The Omega reservoir holds 3 liters of water—enough to keep on keeping' on for three or more hours. The Air Director™ Back Panel and Dynamic Suspension™ harness are designed for comfort, stability and breathability. This pack is a favorite of the Navy SEALS. If it's tough enough for them, it's tough enough for anybody.

Great pack all around. I bought one in 2002 and used it as a mission pack in the Infantry on multiple deployments in Iraq. After 10 years one zipper has ceased, but still closes using the second zipper. I liked this model so much I bought a second newer pack for riding motorcycles in the Mojave. I love the new glasses pocket that was added, and like my new pack even more than the old. This pack is small enough to ride with all day without noticing it being there, but big enough to carry food, water, medical supplies, extra clothes, and tools to get you through the day and night.
Fits the essentials
This a great weekend hiking or biking pack. I bought it for day hikes and riding my mountain bike. Fits all the essentials like spare inner tube and inflation kits. The big plus of this pack over cheaper Chinese imports is the hydration system. Camelbak makes the best hydration systems with there quick disconnects which make for easy maintenance and cleaning. Also the drinking tube is insulated which is a big plus in Arizona.
This daypack is top hawg! It is my favorite piece of gear. On long dayhikes or backcountry skiing I forget it is there except when I am thirsty. Sturdy enough for bushwhacking but not heavy. Not too big, not too small. Three liters of hydro is as much as I have ever needed. I could go on but...

I Have owned one of these since the mid to late '90s. I used mine for mountain biking. My wife got one (same model name, but extremely different design) in 2004. We both love these things. We can carry as much water as we need. The bladder holds 100oz of water, and if you need to you can buy a second bladder and carry a whopping 200oz. There is plenty of room for carrying everything you will need on a hike, a couple sandwiches, oranges, and cans of pop.
This bag is straight up epic. Just awesome.
Nice Pack, well made, I upgraded from an old camelbak blowfish that still was working just a little small, now I carry my tools and everything else in one pack and still have lots of room
