CamelBak Aventura Hydration Pack

CamelBak Aventura Hydration Pack – A 100oz hydration pack.
With so many hydration packs out there they are either mostly hydration packs or mostly day pack. But, with the CamelBak Aventura Hydration Pack it is hard to say if it is more day pack than hydration pack. Perhaps that means the CamelBak Aventura Hydration Pack is the ultimate combination of day pack and hydration pack? It seems like it might be, as it has all the best features of a hydration pack, but all the room of a day pack. This combination of day pack and hydration features make it perfect for intense day hikes.

Let first talk about all of the hydration features that make the CamelBak Aventura Hydration Pack great. For starters, the CamelBak Aventura Hydration Pack holds a whopping 100oz. of fluid. But, it’s not just the size of the bladder, but how tough it is. The bladder is made up of Omega HydroTanium. What does that mean? It means that the bladder is super tough and you would be hard pressed to bust this bad boy doing anything other than shooting it at point blank. As with all the newer CamelBak bladders, this one is taste free and what give you the plastic taste either.

Lets talk about all the day pack features of the CamelBak Aventura Hydration Pack. For starters, the CamelBak Aventura Hydration Pack doesn’t sport a simple bladder pocket like many other day packs. This bladder has its own compartment. there is a separate zippered pocket for the bladder so that you don’t have to dig everything out of your pack to get to the bladder. The main compartment has just enough room for you 10 day hiking essentials, some snacks, and even some room left over. There is also another large zippered compartment on the outside of the pack for things like GPS, MP3 players, and other small items and electronics.
