    What Camelbak fits 2 100oz bladders & epic gear?

    I'm looking to do more 'epic' rides this season, and would like to be able to carry two 100oz bladders and the essential gear. Of course, I'd like it in the smallest, most comfortable package available, even if it isn't Camelbak brand.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Anything is possible. The impossible just takes longer.

    The Salomon Raid Race 200 is what I have been using for 24hour+ adventure races. It fits a ton of stuff, but we have to carry more mandatory gear, etc. I don't use it for epic rides though, I find a camelback mule and (most recently have found) the wingnut gear pack works great for epics....

    I also don't carry 100oz. of water. If I need > 100, I carry iodine tabs.

    I have never used it, but I see it everytime I EP stuff from Salomon thru the shop.. I am sure, just like all of Salomon's products, it rocks! It does have T.I. potential. I wonder if it will hold water bottles on the shoulder straps

    This is the pack I will be using at the TI and for all my epic rides...

    I have been riding with up to 20 lbs of stuff in the 2.5 without any back, shoulder or hand issues. The 2.5 should be available in a couple weeks.

    I have a full gallery of pics of this pack, the Wingnut Gear Hyper 2.5 and the smaller 1.5 at... Wingnut Gear Hyper 2.5 & 1.5 Gallery

    For two 100oz bladders you should look at the Hyper 3.0 or the bigger Adventure. They are not made specifically to hold two bladders, but there is certainly room in the main compartments to fit a second one.

    The Camelbak HAWG is designed to carry two 100oz bladders plus it'll hold a pretty large chunk of gear....but 200oz liquid gets kinda heavy - so if you're riding around lakes, creeks and such, a handy dandy water filter is da bomb

    On super long trips I fill 1 bladder with H2O and the other with a sports drink (Gatorade) - just remember to wash the gatorade bladder out when ya get home

    hmmm, those wingnut packs look very nice. I am in the market for a pack like this for the Kokepelli race, and most likely downthe road more self supported events like TI and the Grand loop.

    I'd look at the 3.0 or the Adventure for those remote self supported rides. The TI is not so remote hence the smaller pack.

    Also rather then a second bladder bottles could be placed in the Wing pockets instead.

    Just a quick update...

    I ended up purchasing a 2004 Camelbak Blowfish. I compared the '04, '05, and '06, and noticed that most of the packs have been shrinking in volume. And it was on clearance sale. I'll be using it with either 2X 100oz bladders, or one 100oz and one 70oz bladders.

    Thanks for everyone's help!
