i currently own a 20$ hydration pack from walmart it wokred and all but it just isnt enough water (55oz) so im deciding to step up to something bigger where i can keep my tools in and more water. anyone have any experience with this pack?
also its pretty big and cheap so i rather go for this rather than 110$ camelbak mule

I do not have any experience with the pack you are asking about, but I got a larger pack recently that I like so far.. The one you linked is a great price, if you can check one out locally, you should! The Camelbak I got is comfortable for me, has a LOT of space, and I really like the OMEGA HydroTitanium bladder.

Is the pack I got.

Go for it. They are fine packs for twice the cost. Does it come with the bladder? I didn't really see. If not, pick a hundred ouncer up. They are like 12 bucks.

:thumbsup:

for $30, i can't imagine the bladder is very good. a good bladder alone costs that much.
I have one that I am giving to someone tomorrow, but it was 12 bucks... Can buy three of them for the price of one OEM. WE will see how it goes. It looks OK from my cursory inspection.

I use CamelBak bladder in a WingNut Expedition.

:D

There are several other places with similar pricing. I got mine at Nashbar for $55 on sale a couple of week ago.

Carlos I have that same bag and its pretty good. The only thing I had to change was the bite valve. Other than that its perfect for anything. And it comes with the 100oz bladder

I say go for it. I've bought several Sette products and I've always been very satisfied. Camelback products are some of the most overpriced bike accessories, in my opinion.

Disclaimer: Although overpriced, camelbacks sell for so much because they're good products. When I needed a new one, I started looking for deals. Eventually i got a MULE from Cabellas for less than $40, but deals like that don't come around very often.

Chainlove has been showing Dakine and Camelback packs lately at around 60% off. Might want to get a tracker or just check that site every 30 minutes and you'll eventually find a stellar deal.

A friend of mine got me a Dakine Nomad pack for cost from his work; it ended up being a few bucks more than a similar pack on Chainlove.
