CamelBak Magic Hydration -
The phrase 'less is more' has been around much longer than mountain biking, but there really isn't another activity to which it better applies. To an extent, the less you pull up the climb with you, the better off you'll be. Weight equals fatigue. While not entirely minimalist, the Camelbak Women's Magic Hydration Backpack illustrates this point. Able to carry 70 ounces of water, an extra layer, a snack, keys, a phone, your MP3 player, and a multi-tool, the rugged, utilitarian Magic Hydration Pack discourages on-trail gear gluttony.
The Magic has plenty of storage for most training rides around two hours–that's probably 10 to 15 miles, depending on terrain and skill level. We're willing to bet that's about 75% or more of your weekly rides. That's a pretty healthy majority of your riding, and at just one pound, the Magic takes care of that quite efficiently.

CamelBak Magic Hydration Reviews:


Great little pack

I work as an ecologist/botanist in the field all summer, and I bought this specifically for plot work where you are reading a line or taking mearsurements for a long period of time and don't have the luxury of free hands for carrying a water bottle. This pack fit the bill. It's small and light, and the 2 liter capacity is perfect... just enough to get you though a hot morning (though you may have to refill after lunch, those days it's in the 100s). I had a different CamelBak pack that I tried to use for the same purpose that did not have the waist strap, which meant every time you bent forward the whole pack would flip up over your head. Super irritating... but no such problems here!

This pack seems like it will also be great for low mileage day hikes or hikes requiring a bit of scrambling, though if you are going a long distance or carrying any sort of weight (which would be hard to do with this little pack), you'll wish you had more substantial and comfortable waist straps. I gave this pack 4 rather than 5 stars only because it wouldn't have taken CamelBak much to make the waist straps more comfortable... but for how I've used the pack so far, this is only a minor nitpick in comparison to all of its good points.

This pack has kept me hydrated through one mild-weathered Camp Reggae and one brutally hot Bonnaroo, and I have been very impressed with it.
It is lightweight and breathable, so carrying it on a hot day isn't a huge inconvenience, the 2L reservoir is big enough so that you aren't constantly refilling, and the pockets are well-sized and compartmentalized so you can carry all your necessities you'll need throughout the day. I got it in the Peacoat color which has yet to appear dirty. The straps are adjustable so you can custom-fit it to your comfort, and as with all Camelbak products, the bite valve makes it very convenient to drink your weight in water.
My only complaint is that depending on the faucet you're using, sometimes you have to take the hydration pack out to fill it unless you want your bag soaked. But that is a minor issue (for me anyway). All in all it was a great purchase.

Love It!

I love this backpack! I use it for my short day hikes after work. It's easily adjustable and comfortable. It fastens tight and doesn't bounce around when I want to run down the trail. I just wish it was bigger and had more pockets. But I guess that's why I need to get a second, roomier backpack!

Perfect Pak

Perfect for a half day hike, plenty of water and snack room. Filled it with ice and water, kept me cool during the hike. Very comfortable against bare shoulders.
