The CamelBak M. This pack has a lot of the mountain bike-specific features of some of the other hydration packs in our test, but not all, which helps keep the weight down and the simplicity high. Updated Colors An updated colorway for the M. As for the pack design itself, it remains unchanged. It has proven itself over the past 19 years, but unfortunately, it could use some updating to compete with other more modern models in our test lineup.

Performance Comparison Moving fast with the M. Huff, puff, pant, and groan…even with that, it was still easy to not just sip but gulp water from the Big Bite valve; this guaranteed our thirsty reviewers grade of 10 out of 10 in this category. The 3-liter Crux hydration bladder is stored in its own dedicated and lightly insulated hydration sleeve located at the inner-most portion of the pack, just inside the back sheet and behind the main storage compartment.

The drinking tube attaches with a quick disconnect fitting which we found convenient when it was time to fill up. The tube is routed through a simple opening from the hydration sleeve, down the right shoulder strap and is attached to a magnetic clip, much like the Osprey Syncro 12, Platypus Duthie A.

They even use handy pictures! Ease of Filling While the M. While it was not that difficult, it was not as easy as others, like the Osprey Syncro. Access can be gained through opening a large zipper into the hydration compartment, and the large blue cap of the bladder is right there. The Crux shoe horn style handle increases the ease of filling, earning the M. The bladder is equipped with a double-hooked hanger to keep it upright and unable to sag into the bottom of the bag, but unfortunately, the M.

This can be overcome by sliding the handle into a sewn loop, just as is the case with the large capacity CamelBak Cloud Walker 18, which also guides the drinking tube up and out of the pack. Do note that it did take a little fiddling to slide the handle into place. If the other features of the pack are your favorite, this is a minor consideration, but a consideration nonetheless.

The big 4" cap of the Crux bladder. Comfort The good news is the M. Unfortunately, the bad news is that the M. While the older pack is reasonably comfortable, with a similar feel, the M. One portion sits at the lower back while the other two sit under the shoulder blades.

After riding on a couple of warmer days, we noticed the backs of our shirts were nearly as saturated as with older packs. We felt like the pads, although well intentioned, made too much contact with our backs.

Working up a sweaty back while climbing on a sunny day. The shoulder straps are anatomically curved and cut, composed of ventilated foam padding with mesh covering on the top half and the same nylon material as the pack body for the lower half. Our testers felt the straps were more than adequate and had no complaints.

Getting ready to try out the M. The M. If we were testing this model years ago, we would likely rate the comfort higher, but unfortunately, the M. Comfort on par with our old CamelBak pack. Storage The M. The pouch is attached to the two quick release buckles that button the central portion of the pack up and also to the two fixed buckles on the lower adjusters.

The quick release buckles have extra integrated tabs on their outer surfaces for hooking and carrying your helmet. As we found with competitors like the Deuter Compact Air EXP 12, the outer portion of the pack opens with a large rainbow shaped zipper that provides complete access to the first compartment. Inside the pack is a horizontal zip pocket that measures 8"x6" and has an incorporated key clip inside.

Immediately below are two stretch mesh panel pockets that split the lower half into two sections. We found these pockets were ideal for storing bike tools and a spare tube. Sewn into the outside of the upper pocket is an elasticized keeper loop that kept our air pump handy and in one place.

The main compartment storage pouches with our bike gear stowed. Move from that outer pocket toward the guts of the pack and open the next full-access zipper. Inside this next compartment is space, lots of space.

No extras at all, just a place to stuff your extra layers, etc. If you like simplicity, this may be your pack. A large open portion of the pack is a great place for things like extra layers.

This pocket measures approximately 8"x5", and we used it for storing our phones, glasses, and goggles, although the pocket has no padding or lining. Convenient storage for glasses or goggles, although not lined. Weight Of our larger capacity models, the M. This contender is light enough for climbing, though not the lightest or even close to the lightest in our fleet. The zipper access is straightforward, but you do need to reach into the bottom of the bladder compartment to find the quick disconnect button to the drinking tube to remove the bladder entirely.

After the bladder has been removed, we were able to gain good but not effortless access to the interior. Other hydration bladders like those found on the Osprey packs and the Deuter model with full opening capability were easier to scrub, wipe, and dry.

The Crux bladder offers good but not great access when compared with the wider access designs. At home on the mountain bike! Value When compared to the prices of the other large capacity packs in our hydration pack test, the M.
