    Default Camalbak Packs

    Im looking for a dayhike/overnight pack and liked what i saw from camelbak. I was wondering if any body had any experince with these and was the quality good.
    Common sense isn't so common any more.

    Quality is excellent. Their packs are very well made. Good stitching and great customer service. You can't go wrong with their gear.

    I'd suggest a search for Motherlode, BFM, and even the MULE on the small side.

    there's some great reviews on here by some members - Bill just did a few nice threads on the Motherlode recently.

    I have a Blowfish for shorter day trips. It's expandable if I need the room. Very good construction. The bladders are nearly indestructible.

    I have 2 camelbak packs the Motherload and rim runner. The Motherload is a great well made pack had it for 2 years and used it many outtings and over nighters. Still looks brand new. I use the rim runner for fast light hikes in parks on trail or for trail running. It has been a good little pack to. However if I was to get a new pack I would look into the new tri-zip really good long review here. http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewt...p?f=14&t=71055
    I agree with the author that one of the draw backs on the Motherload is the back bulging out with a bladder in it. Hope that helps!

    I used a BFM as my main ruck in Afghanistan back in 2004, 2005, still carry that same one on light backpacking trips. Really well made stuff. Cleverly designed as well.
    Who would have thought a water bladder company could have become a great packmaker, but they did.
