What customers say about "Key Specs"
CamelBak Classic Hydration Pack, 85oz
  • It is slightly smaller than I had hoped.This is perfect for shorter hikes but definitely opt for something larger if you are going on a full day or longer hike.
  • Perfect size and holds enough water for my trail rides. Fill all the way with ice and it keeps it cold the whole time.
  • Great product! Perfect when you need lots of hydration but don't want to carry a full sized bag.
  • I like the design. It fits well on my back, not too big not too small. Pocket is a good size for a small collapsible water bowl for my dog, a car key, my inhaler, and my phone.
  • This small pack is perfect for long day hikes and has just enough room to store the important things (car keys, granola bar, phone).
  • Only thing is the pocket in the front is really small, maybe fits one wallet or one phone and when the pouch is full of water it sits a little awkwardly on your back.
CamelBak Rogue Hydration Pack, 85oz
  • It holds enough water for a couple hour hike and has plenty of storage for a phone, wallet and keys. It's super lightweight.
  • The Rogue fits great on my back, allows access to my jersey pockets, provides additional storage compartments and is able to carry enough water that I need.
  • It is pretty small, so I wouldn't expect to use it for a long hiking trip or anything. I would highly recommend.
  • It is a pretty good pack. It's on the small size, but that's what I was looking for-- something small that would fit bike tools, hold a lot of water, and have room for snacks.
  • The pockets come in major handy and easily hold my extra bike tire and tools, as well as my keys, money, etc.
  • If you want to only carry water, this is the bag for you. The 'pockets' on the front are really just thin storage areas. Like perhaps you could slide a notepad or map in there, but nothing else.

What customers say about "Features"
CamelBak Classic Hydration Pack, 85oz
  • Pack has plenty of storage for small items, and it's comfortable to wear, and easy to fill while still in the pack (thanks to exposed cap and a handle hidden beneath the outer flap.
  • The straps are adjustable, the pockets are handy, and the whole thing is just a great idea!
  • Really great quality. No wonder this brand is a name brand, it is EXTREMELY good quality. I cannot strive how the quality is top notch.
  • The straps are adjustable which is great because for a female, I have broad shoulders and this fit perfectly with room to spare.
  • The only issue I have is that it is difficult to get a complete seal on the cap which allows the water to leak out.
CamelBak Rogue Hydration Pack, 85oz
  • Nice feature is the hydration bladder is removable, and the outside is washable. That is great for keeping it clean and keeping those nasty smells from riding in the hot sun away.
  • The bite valve is large comes with a locking mechanism so you can be certain no water will spill out.
  • The quality is there. The new Crux reservoir is nice, easy to fill, and easy to close tight. The valve is nice and provides a better shut off solution.
  • The Crux reservoir is extremely easy to cross thread, which would result in leaking; but after a few tries, I had it sealed nicely. The bite valve feels nice and the lock feature is effective.
  • The lack of a strap and buckle holding the bladder flap down really kills the pack. I used to regularly put a shirt under the strap and it would stay all day.
