CamelBak Charge 10 LR Pack.

The Charge 10 LR by CamelBak differs from the typical CamelBak; the reservoir is in the lumbar. The advantage of having the reservoir in the lumbar is that doing so reduces the stress on the top of your back while in the riding position. If you’ve ever rode with a CamelBak then you most-likely know that when water tends to pool in the lumbar it creates a bulge, becoming uncomfortable and straining on your back. CamelBak’s answer is the Charge 10 LR: An ultra-light, lumbar-based reservoir pack with MTB-specific cargo. Ride comfortably and stay hydrated over the long haul.

Reservoir Features: Antidote™ Lumbar Reservoir with 1/4 turn - easy open/close cap, lightweight fill port, patented Big Bite™ Valve, HydroGuard™ technology, PureFlow™ tube, easy-to-clean wide-mouth opening

Key Pack Features: Ultra-light materials, lumbar reservoir compression, bike tool organizer pocket, stretch overflow storage

Designed to Carry: Multi-tool, CO2 pump & cartridges, spare tube, extra layer, energy supplements, phone, wallet, keys

The Camelbak Charge 10 LR Hydration Pack puts the majority of the pack weight where it should be carried–on your hips. The two-liter reservoir is good for two to three hour rides, and the large pocket has plenty of room for gear and tools.
The most important design aspect of the Charge 10 LR Pack is its lumbar reservoir system, which keeps your water (the majority of your pack weight) on your hips for comfortable, efficient carry. The upper area of the pack carries 500 cubic inches of gear, so you can carry lunch and an extra layer along with your usual tools and tube.

Awesome biking Camelbak!

This pack is great!!!
The idea of a horizontal bladder works so well for biking. No more water sloshing high up on your back while your on the trail. There are even little spines/ridges built into the bladder to prevent lateral weight transfer of the water; great design.
The side (hip) pockets are great too, excellent place to put a cliff bar or for quick access to basic tools.
Inside the main compartment there are plenty of varying size pockets, an elastic strap for your bike pump, as well as a few other cool features.

The only bad thing about this bag is the drink tube access point at the top of the bag. I've tried using the strap on the both sides, but it really only works with one side, otherwise you can feel the tube being pulled on. It's not a major issue, more just personal preference if you prefer left or right side tube access.

The most stable available

The bladder on the bottom is a significant advantage in difficult terrain. It carrys your center of gravity lower, you don't feel it on your shoulders, body movement doesn't cause the pack to shift, and it conforms to your hips, making it feel almost like a water bed.
It's also light and fits enough stuff for a typical long day.

The only potential negatives are that it isn't a large capacity bladder and while cleaning it is easy, drying it isn't.

To address the person who found themself sucking air, you do need to try to remove any excess air from the bladder when not filling it completely or it will do that.

An Excellent Niche Product

The Camelback Charge 10 strikes a nice balance between a large day pack and a water exclusive hydro pack. At a 70 ounce capacity, it is adequate for biking or a short to moderate day hike without undue weight. It has lightweight material and quality construction.

Negative Reviews:

Lots of space but useless bladder

Bought it yesterday and returned it today.

I tested it for 2 hours and brought 1 liter. I thought something was stuck in the hose or bladder because the liquid kept skipping with air. It wasn't consistent. To make the matter worse, with the 12 oz left on the bladder, I was not able to get through it. So I was carrying 12 oz of useless water on my back. This is due to the bladder "T" design. The liquid stays on the outside of the "T" and it is probably the reason why they had change the bladder on their 3L version.

Another thing is cleaning and dumping the liquid out of this bladder takes so much time.

Other that these, the pack fits nice on my back and a lot of compartment. Too bad they didn't change the bladder to 3L design.
