Why CamelBak is a great choice for you!

CamelBak is known for their packs with hydration system. Many mountain bikers, (trail) runners and hikers are using the packs of CamelBak. Nothing is more convenient than to be able to drink in difficult terrain just as easily as with a drinking system in a pack. On the bike, you can keep your hands on the handlebar for optimal control, and while running, you don’t have to hold a bottle in your hands. There are packs especially for every type of athlete with a water reservoir and integrated water hose for drinking during work-out. You can choose a pack with only space for a water reservoir, but also for a pack where you can also store some tools or extra clothes. In this blog, we will highlight the best (hydration) packs and accessories/spare-parts of CamelBak that we have in stock at TRI-BIKE ARUBA, to answer your question: what CamelBak do I need?

The collection of CamelBak can be divided into different segments: bike, running and multisport. Within these categories there are some models specifically intended for men, women or kids. Last but not least, we divided the accessories/spare-parts in a separate category.

Bike collection

At TRI-BIKE ARUBA, the biggest part of the collection concerns packs that are made for bike purposes. Minimal to max carry, there’s a solution for every rider. Designed for comfortable hands-free hydration and highly organized storage. The collection of bike vests, packs, and belts enable more time on the trail.

The M.U.L.E. bike pack combines 12 liters total storage capacity with a 3-liter Crux reservoir with Quicklink. The Air Director back panel and ventilated harness keep you cool and comfortable, while the removeable stability belt offers another layer of customized fit. An integrated tool roll, secure zip pockets, and exterior helmet carry serve up versatility and organization. This pack is partially made with post-consumer recycled materials.

The Lobo is designed for the sunny weather idealist. It is an everyday bike pack for those perfect days when you want to travel fast and stay hydrated. With 9 liters total storage capacity and a 3-liter Crux reservoir with Quicklink, it carries enough water for a substantial day-long ride. The Lobo also has an Air Director back panel to keep your back ventilated. The back also has the removeable stability belt, an integrated tool roll, secure zip pockets, and an exterior helmet carry. Just like the M.U.L.E., this pack is partially made with recycled materials.

Do you want a minimal approach to carrying gear on the trails without sacrificing hydration or performance? Then the Chase Bike Vest is a good choice for you! Pack lighter and ride faster with focused features like quick access front harness and stretch overflow pockets. Stay cool and hydrated with 3-D vent mesh and the 1.5-liter Crux reservoir. This minimalist vest is thoughtfully engineered to take your mind off your gear so you can focus on the ride.

Your ideal companion for hot, sweaty rides, the Ratchet is the lightest CamelBak bike pack with the maximum hydration capacity. Its 3L Crux reservoir will fuel rides of 3+ hours. With a small zippered pocket for essentials and a stretchy overflow compartment for layers, this pack gives you an efficient way of hauling the bare necessities for a long ride, whether you’re on pavement, trail, or gravel.

The convenience of external fill in a sleek bike pack defines the Rogue 85 OZ Hydration Pack. The 2.5L Crux reservoir can be refilled on the fly via the quick-release flap on the front of the pack. Two external pockets for small items like keys, wallet, phone or storage for a shed layer. CamelBak also added reflective accents to keep you visible on early morning and evening rides, as they often take place on Aruba.

The name says it all: the Classic is the typical bike hydration pack with a Crux reservoir for a fast flow of water. It has a breathable air mesh back panel for a lightweight, comfortable fit and reflective accents for visibility in low-light environments.

When all you want is water, the minimalist Hydrobak bike pack has you covered with enough water for a 2-hour ride, and a safe zip pocket for keys and essentials. It has a comfortable and lightweight fit, and a breathable air mesh back panel.

Perfect for a quick ride or running laps at the local bike park. The Podium Flow Belt carries up to 2-liters of cargo in addition to a 21oz Podium Dirt Series bottle. The bottle is secured and easily accessed using an elastic sleeve and utilizes our Mud Cap to keep dirt and dust out of your hydration. If your rides require more than just a bottle, this is the solution for you.

Running collection

Light as a feather and designed for the long run. Form meets function and breathability in CamelBak’s collection of running vests.

The most popular running vest is the Circuit Vest. It includes a 1.5-liter CRUX reservoir. The vest has a streamlined dual sternum strap adjustment system, that also has integrated reflectivity, and a new 3D Micro Mesh. The Circuit is light, more comfortable and well ventilated. The secure zippered pocket fits most smartphones and the open front harness pockets are specifically designed for Quick Stow flasks should you need additional hydration. A one-size-fits-most design means you can use it for a variety of activities and thanks to the side compression being highly adjustable it ensures a stable fit over any terrain.

This model is also available with a women's specific fit! The Women's Circuit Vest is designed specifically for women. The front panels include four different soft flask sized pockets so you can customize where you carry additional hydration or gear. The Women's Circuit Vest is certain to become one of your most versatile and trusted training partners.

Minimalist design, maximum comfort. When a handheld just isn’t enough, but an ultrarunning vest feels like overkill, the Octane Dart is your streamlined companion. The Dart has been a favorite among runners for years, thanks to its simple and intuitive features: a zippered essentials pocket in the back, and a stretchy pocket on the harness for gels or bars.

Perfect for short distance running and fast-paced walking, the Flash Belt features a secure phone pocket, reflective accents and a best-in-class insulated 17oz Peak Fitness Chill bottle. The bottle sleeve includes an elastic strip to ensure the bottle stays secure. No longer do you have to sacrifice performance and storage when a waist pack is all you need.

Multisport collection

Changes in terrain demand different types of gear. Nimble styles that are ultra-organized, lightweight, and versatile make up CamelBak’s expanded Multi Sport Collection.

Built for trail running and fast-paced hiking, the Women’s Octane 9 is designed specifically for women. The best-in-class Crux reservoir holds 2 liters of water, but if you need to carry more, stash a Quick Stow flask in one of the specifically sized harness pockets. Designed just for women, the harness allows your gear placement to be customized with the use of upper and lower pockets so you can carry your water and fuel where it's most comfortable. The stretch overflow on the back is perfect for a rain shell or extra layers while attachment points allow you to secure trekking poles, or additional gear. For trail runs, hiking, or run commuting to the office, the Octane 9 has you covered.

Weighing in at 350 grams, the Octane XCT is perfect for moving fast and light. The waist belt provides extra stability and includes zippered pockets for easy access to essentials. The new design features extra storage on the waist belt and harness, so you can keep keys, gels and maps in easy reach.

Kids collection

All big adventures start out small. CamelBak’s kids pack collection promotes self-sufficient carry of enough water and essentials to keep them happy and hydrated.

The Scout is a full-featured hiking pack designed specifically for younger explorers, with a safety whistle, name patch, and bright, kid-friendly colors. With a short torso length, it's tailor-made for preschoolers and grade-school students. The pack includes an essentials pocket, a wicking mesh back panel, 1.5 liter Crux reservoir, and two side pockets.

The Mini M.U.L.E. has grownup features, with 1.5 liters of water, a bike tool organizer pocket, and zippered compartments for layers and essentials, in a package that fits younger explorers. CamelBak also added reflective strips and a safety whistle to make kids easy to spot on the trail.

Pack accessories

To keep your CamelBak hydration pack in good condition, it is important to maintain it properly. This can be done through a number of cleaning products and spare parts.

If there’s one thing we need during exercise, especially on Aruba, it’s water. The brand new Crux Reservoir delivers 20% more water per sip (compared to similar products), with an ergonomic handle for easier refilling, and an on/off lever that makes it easy to prevent leaks. The Crux went through exhaustive stress tests to make sure that it won’t fail you on the trail and is 100% free of BPA, BPS and BPF. This reservoir is made of antimicrobial Hydroguard material that inhibits the growth of bacteria in the reservoir and tube, and is available in a 3L, 2L and 1.5L variant.

You can also replace the parts separately, with for example the Crux Replacement Tube, the Crux On/Off Valve and the Big Bite Valves (which self-seals after each drink, eliminating annoying drips). You can keep everything clean with the Cleaning Kits and Cleaning Tablets.
