Camelbak Blowfish?
« on: August 08, 2007, 08:41:14 AM »
Hails Ya'll. I am looking for a hydration system and this one seems to best fit my needs. Does anybody have one? What are your thoughts?

Scooter,
I have one and I love it.  It carries everything I need for me and extra so if I run across someone struggling on the trail I have a bottle of water and some munchies or a spare tube.  Plus I have enoufh room to put them if they need a lift out.   Just kidding!!! But I do love it.
Gears??? We don't need no STINKING GEARS!!!

I have a Blowfish and love it...it carries everything I could possibly want in it and more.  Mine usually has in it:
2 Allen key sets
Chain tool
CO2 inflater and a couple of cartridges
Tire levers
2 tubes
various spare bolts
Some Hammer gel packs

With all of that I still have room for a camera and a windbreaker without expanding the pack.

I use the M.U.L.E. CamelBak and have had great success.. it holds a lot of stuff.. Just ask Benjibbad last night.. it came in handy when he broke his seat.. I thought I was Mcgiver or something.. tools, zip tyes food, towl.. you name I've got it in there along with 3 Liters of water.  wasn't that expensive.. 75.00 on Performance Bike.

Best,
Andrew
