    Yes...have used it for about 3 weeks now. One 36 mile race. It's VERY comfortable having the lower weight of the water bladder down on your lower back. I don't carry a whole lot so for me has a ton of storage and is light.

    Bladder position was the main thing I was wondering about. My shoulders get tired with the conventional bladder position. Enough storage space for a hand pump, couple tubes and a multi-tool?

    My Transformer



    I removed the crappy plasic back sheet inside, and threw the bladder out, I only buy Camelbaks for the pack - dont need any of the stuff it comes with. I carry tools, pump, knife, light, lock (depending), small waterbottle (depending), tunes, and my weed. I try to keep the weight to a minumum.

    They are awesome packs, especially the commando millitary line - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    I have a pump, a tube, multitool in it and it fits without a problem. Also can easily hold a jacket folded up, gloves, my phone, keys plus a bunch of gels or shot blocks in the side pockets that are easy to reach even while racing. I'm a big fan of the pack. Much less back strain than my other camelbaks that I have and very light. I'm very happy with it. I have not tried any other brands of hydration packs. Doing another 2 hour race Saturday and plan on using it.

    Been using one for a few months now, and it's the best hydration pack I've used for biking; I have a wall full of them. If they made a 100 oz lumbar bladder it would be even better.

    By the way, you can only special order those lumbar bladders from Camelbak.
