    Strengths:    Minimalistic. Carries just enough... Rides tight to the body. Barely know it's there even when filled with water. Nice internal mesh pocket/dividers. I'd buy another one if I lost this one!

    Weaknesses:    sternum strap too high (I'm avg build 5'10" 40" chest) and gel pocket a little tight.

    Bottom Line:   
    See treolis review below. Works great for short 2+ hr rides. Carries most of what you what for both road & mtn rides. Bleach cleans it out just fine. I primarily ride mtn bike rides and this is my pack for non-epic rides.

    Strengths:    Stores pump, tube, spoon, cell phone, and some power bars without having to stuff it too much.

    Weaknesses:    Hard to keep dry when not using it. Look into camelback's drying rack.

    Bottom Line:   
    Camelbacks are all really nice quality. If you find the size of storage and water you like, you will enjoy your camelback. Just keep it clean and dry when you arent using it.

    Strengths:    Easy to clean if you have long pipestem cleaners and a bottle brush. It helps to put a teaspoon of bleach in the reservoir. I also like the elastic straps that hold the regular shoulder straps and waist strap, so they won't flap in the wind.

    Weaknesses:    All CamelBaks have the sternum strap way too high - and there is no way you can adjust it lower. The sternum strap hits me way above the collarbone.

    Why did CamelBak discontinue the Razor? That's what I really wanted - aerodynamic

    Bottom Line:   
    Important on long rides (over 50 miles) when I'm riding solo; especially when there are minimal water stops on my route. It's also handy when I'm in a high pace group, because there's no time for me to get my bottles to my mouth.

    I also use the Rocket when skiing the steep and the deep. I tuck the bite valve in my collar of my parkas. I like to hike to the bowls or steep stuff, it sure comes in handy to get hydrated in alpine territory. It carries spare dry socks, a balaclava, a spare turtleneck, and PowerBars.

    Strengths:    Good aero form.

    Weaknesses:    Too bulky. You cannot clean the reservoir.

    Bottom Line:   
    Really above guys. I cannot stand this pack. The reservoir cannot be cleaned without specialized brushes.

    Strengths:    No leaks, great valve with shutoff, insulated bladder pocket keeps water cool. Enough storage for necessary extras, tube, minitool, pump/CO2.

    Weaknesses:    Get one...

    Bottom Line:   
    Nicely made. Have used Camelbak for years now and have never had a problem with leakage. Keeps water cold and enough room for the essentials. Bought this for my road bike as the HAWG and Trans Alp are too big for me on the road bike.
