An Air Director back panel and 500D Cordura Fabric make this pack one serious mother. The rugged pack includes a 100 oz. (3 L) OMEGA Water Beast Reservoir with HydroLink Exit Port with an easy-to-fill and clean wide-mouth OMEGA opening. With a leak-proof screw cap, the pack reservoir keeps your source of hydration protected. With a patented Big Bite valve and one-handed flow control, quelling thirst on the go has never been more convenient.
This is honestly a good bag. I have had one for a year now. Be aware that the lbe-like waist belt wraps above the navel on the torso. so if you are running a vest rig, like 3 5.56 mag holders across the gut, you may want to dismantle it. In the hydration pocket there is a little pocket that contains a plastic back support plate so the bag does not sag in the rear center. A fifty pound load for three hours destroyed my soulders, however. The Tactical Tailor bags are better and by that I mean like $150 more for a bag this size better. But, none the less, this is one of the better bags out there, buy it if you cannot afford TT gear. Camelbak will not let you down.

This was perfect for what I carry with me everyday to the motorpool and the ACU pattern matches my ACU's perfect--thanks
Best Pack Hands Down!!
This is the best pack out there hands down. A little pricey but bombproof. It has the dual ASIP antennae ports and two cordura loops inside that hold them down closer to the radio(s). Plus pen holders, pockets galore and lotsa MOLLE/PAL tabs. I have bought alot of bags but this bag beats them all. Get one. It's worth every dime.
The cargo area itself is great, the waistbelt is fine. The Hydration system is great. The only problem is that if you have a chest or shoulders then the top portion of the shoulder straps and all their hangers for quick equipment are at about at the level of the top of you shoulders. Drawing a combat knife at the level of your ear is not suitable, unless you like to have your ear splayed open. G.E.C.
I got selected for a random advanced search at the airport with this bag as my carryon and the TSA had trouble finding all of the compartments!
Best pack ever!
First of all, this backpack fits very comfortably on my back. The lumbar support is truly amazing. Unlike most backpacks, the side that fits against your back is very breathable, so there is no moisture building up making it uncomfortably wet. I hit two high peaks in the Adirondack mountains yesterday with this pack and it was amazing! It held up extremely well to the cold weather ranging from 4 F. to -15F. The molle attachments makes carrying gear and anything else extremely easy. The price is steep, but it is well worth it!
