    Camelbak MULE (military) hydration pack set up for mountain bike


    For cheap though perhaps a Costco model. I'm not familiar with them.

    Camelbak Hawg

    I use this. It has an integrated rain protector that will keep your bag dry (or for increased visibility on the road, it's yellow). I can keep food/water/bike lock/ipad/keys/wallet/bug spray/sunscreen/first aid kit/multi-tools/mace comfortably. I also took it to Costa Rica with me for 3 weeks and used it as a day pack/hiking pack. It proved to be invaluable in an environment that has unpredictable rain spurts.

    The back has mesh/padding to keep it comfortable and cool.

    Order off of Amazon.com for the best prices.

    I much prefer the Osprey over the Camelbak for many reasons... Here's a link to my latest blog post comparing the two: Mountain Mileage: Hydration Pack Battle - Camelbak Mule vs. Osprey Raptor 14

    I tried the Raptor 6, but once filled with water there was little room for much else. Exchanged it for the Raptor 10 and it has been perfect.

    Raptor 10 is awesome and can be found HERE for $78.94.

    If you are a REI member and you buy it there you have the peace of mind of having a lifetime return policy.

    A pack with a built in rain cover comes in handy when the weather turns quick. An the small pockets built into the lower straps that are big enough to hold gels and stuff are great. It sucks to remove your pack just to get something to fuel up.

    I just bought the Camelbak MULE, it does everything i need. Holds a good amount of water, plenty of pockets and spaces for everything. Got it on sale too, so it wasn't oo expensive.
