What customers say about "Key Specs"
CamelBak Fourteener 24 Hydration Pack, 100oz
  • The pack carried well and was very comfortable. I removed and replaced the pack alot throughout the day, the straps stayed in place making it fast and easy to put back on.
  • More than enough water capacity and quite comfortable. I just need to fine tune the straps a bit more and I would even notice it was there.
  • Organization is great. It is very comfortable and breathable on the back due to the pods.
  • This pack has been working good. It's very well thought out, simple to use, and has been reliable.
  • Very lightweight lots of storage and very comfortable: used it on a 8 hour hike got home and back felt great.
  • With a full bladder, the main compartment becomes much smaller and its very hard to pack.
CamelBak Fourteener 20 Hydration Pack, 100oz
  • My pack worked perfectly! Holds the weight perfectly and doesn't fill bulky even with 2 extra layers food and 4 litters of water etc.
  • All the storage pockets are in the right places for easy access to items needed while on the move.
  • I walked several hours a day for 5 days without any uncomfortability using this pack. For day-long hikes/excursions this is a great purchase!
  • Very nice lightweight backpack if u adjust it properly it fits like a glove. The wide hip belts are excellent.
  • This thing is huge. The pack is actually comfortable and had padding support for upper lower and mid back.
  • The bag is a bit bigger than I prefer for day hikes but it had what I wanted.

What customers say about "Features"
CamelBak Fourteener 24 Hydration Pack, 100oz
  • This bag is amazing, it truly has every function that I was looking for plus more that I never even knew I wanted and now I couldn't live without.
  • Easy access to the resevoir. A main compartment just big enough to carry what you need for the day.
  • It has a good suspension system, has a place to tie my tripod to the pack, has just the right qty and design of small pockets for keys, glasses, phone, etc.
  • This holds a lot, has straps to hold everything in tight, padding on the hip belt, and not to much padding on the shoulder straps.
  • It has many pockets and multiple straps that help everything stay put! I especially like the waist straps. It supports the backpack which creates less tension on the lower back.
  • With a full bladder, the main compartment becomes much smaller and its very hard to pack.
CamelBak Fourteener 20 Hydration Pack, 100oz
  • The left hip strap also has a pocket as well as a mesh pocket for water bottles. All the pockets except the mesh hip pocket have zippers with grabable tabs.
  • The water flow is better than the generic ones I’ve owned and this one features an on/off valve. This one also features chest and waist straps to secure it to your body.
  • The 100 oz water bladder worked perfectly and was big enough for an 8 hour day of hiking.
  • The air support system kept my back cool. This pack has great compression for its size, nothing bounced around, I almost forgot I was wearing it.
  • The hydration system took awhile to get used to, but it is so easy to use! I'm delighted that I will finally have enough water for long outings.
  • They need to consider upping the size of the reservoirs. Not like you have to use the extra volume, but as for me, I need more water for a day.
