CamelBak Rim Runner Hydration Pack

CamelBak Rim Runner Hydration Pack – Perfect for summer exploration.
Summer time is officially here. This means it is only going to get hotter before it gets cooler. As such, it is important to stay hydrated during all your summer time activities and explorations. And by hydrated during your summer time activities, I don’t me drinking enough beer while you go tubing down a river. I am talking a bout staying healthy and hydrated while you explore your big back yard. To do this, a good hydration pack such as the CamelBak Rim Runner Hydration Pack is in order. This pack has plenty of room for both liquids and solids.

When looking for a good hydration pack for summer time exploration it is important to not only look for one that has plenty of room for all of you 10 essentials, but also has room for a large bladder. It is extra important to have a large bladder for summer time exploration because on those extra hot days it is more important than ever to drink up all day. The CamelBak Rim Runner Hydration Pack has about as big of a bladder as they come. With a bladder size of 100 ounces, you would be hard pressed to not stay hydrated.

Comfort is a feature that most certainly wasn’t over looked on the CamelBak Rim Runner Hydration Pack. As far as using his pack in the summer time goes, the CamelBak Rim Runner Hydration Pack features an Air Director mesh back panel that helps spread air flow across your back to keep you cool and dry. It also features a dynamic suspension system that helps balance all that liquid and gear for the most comfortable fit possible. Should the shoulder straps not get the job done, the pack also has a tuck away waist belt and sternum strap.
