Camelbak The Don Water Carrier Pro Review

Camelbak has released two new hydration packs for 2010 made specifically for the All Mountain and Freeride community. The Don (17.5L) and The Capo (11L) have the usual Camelbak features, along with the ability to carry full face helmets and body armor. I originally tested the 2010 Don, but Camelbak was nice enough to send along the 2011 Don (slightly tweaked over 2010), which had their brand new Antidote bladder system. Continue reading →

Strengths:    Comfortable wear, light, functional, slick looks. Perfect size for a 1-day ride.

Weaknesses:    Gets slightly less comfortable when fully tanked, the back feels round and not that cool any more.

Bottom Line:   
I can't imagine wearing it with fully tanked Camelback (3l) plus usual set of tools/extra tube/rain jacket/some food. It just seems too for that.

But don't get me wrong, if you can settle for 2l of drink or you don't have to worry about extra rain coat it's definitely a great pick for our 1-day rides!

Strengths:    Perfect size, carries a full face or xc helmet and leg pads on the exterior, decent organizing pockets.

Weaknesses:    Spectacularly uncomfortable!

Bottom Line:   
I really wanted to like this pack but it's impossible to wear. The pocket that the bladder goes in is so tight and poorly designed that when you put the full bladder in, it feels like you have a pipe strapped vertically to your back. Even with nothing in the pack it's uncomfortable, but once you load up a ff helmet, leg and arm pads, and all the rest of your gear, it's unbearable. It's too bad, because otherwise it would be a well designed pack.

Glad I bought it at REI; it's going back tomorrow.
