This pack has grownup features—1.5 liters of water, a bike tool organizer pocket, and zippered compartments for layers and essentials— in a package that fits younger explorers. We’ve also added reflective strips and a safety whistle to make kids easy to spot on the trail.
M.U.L.E. 100 oz
There’s a reason this is one of Camelbak's bestselling, longest-running packs: it’s got everything you need, and nothing you don’t. The M.U.L.E.® has a narrow-gauge design that keeps it light and maneuverable—so even when it’s fully loaded for a day of mountain biking, it won’t get in your way. The latest edition is built around the brand new Crux reservoir, which is even easier to load and refill, and delivers more water with every sip. Since launching the first M.U.L.E. in 1996, mountain bikers have been saying that it hits the sweet spot of size vs. storage: it’s lightweight, but big enough to carry three liters of water and a day’s worth of snacks and gear. Over the years, Camelbak also added air channels to keep your back cool, universal helmet hooks, and clever compartments for stashing tools, keys and electronics. The latest version also features a magnetic tube trap that snaps easily into place, so you can hydrate without taking your eyes off the trail.
STAFF PICK: NATE The perfect pack for mountain biking or day hiking! I have used the Camelbak M.U.L.E. for years as a very versatile day pack. The pockets are very well thought out, and the "quick hit" front pocket is perfect for quick and easy access to things like your rain jacket or pants without having to dig to the bottom of your pack. It is sized perfectly so that it doesn't feel too big on your back while riding, yet it holds everything you need from food and water to tools and extra tubes.

You don't necessarily need to carry a ton of gear to head out on a long ride when there's no threat of bad weather. With nutrition bars providing plenty of energy and tubeless tires providing whole seasons of no-flat riding, the only things you need to carry are a phone, multi-tool, and an energy bar. Coincidentally, that's exactly what the Camelbak Lobo Hydration Backpack has room to carry—well, that and enough of water for a three-hour ride.
The Lobo's narrow profile helps prevent the pack from swinging around behind you as you cruise over rocks, roots, and other obstacles. Not only is this feature great for saving weight, but it's also less cumbersome, so you're able to maneuver through tight trails with ease. The Lobo also features an Air Director back panel that cushions and promotes airflow to keep you cool and comfy. The Lobo is also equipped with CamelBak's Crux reservoir, which delivers 20% more water per sip, ensuring you stay hydrated as you navigate rolling singletrack, slickrock, and loony downhill pursuits alike.
