The flagship of CamelBak's multi-sport packs, the Octane XCT Hydration Backpack features a unique body-hugging design. A 210-cubic-inch essentials pocket and two cargo pockets on the waist belt offer you enough storage for a full day of your favorite activity. Plan for three hours of well-hydrated running or cycling fueled by CamelBak's three-liter Antidote reservoir. Without water, the Octane doesn't even hit one pound, an ideal choice for those looking to cut any excess weight from their outfit. An Air mesh back panel and the ultra-light 3D Mesh harness allow air currents to relieve your back and chest of stuffiness and over-heating during highly aerobic movement. Complete with a safety whistle and two reflective facets, the Octane XCT provides just that much more confidence when out at night.

Season after season, CamelBak's super scientists have been hard at work refining and perfecting the Antidote reservoir, the industry's most popular solution to hydration. At the turn of a cap (a quarter turn to be exact), you can open or close the reservoir, refilling and securing it again in seconds. Center baffling and a sleek design prevent your water from jostling about inside your pack while running, hiking, or hitting the park. When not off exploring the world, simply disconnect the tube using the Quick Link System and hang up the Antidote for proper drying or storage. Since last year, CamelBak's go-to reservoir system has actually lost some weight, reducing bulk in the fill port and offering you that much more convenience.

Camelbak's ultralight Octane XCT Hydration Pack is perfect for minimalist adventure racers, trail runners and riders who need a comfortable pack without the weight. The 100 oz Antidote Reservoir includes Camelbak's Quick LinkĀ™ System access- that lets you add Camelbak accessories such as insulated tube(Campmor sku# 67892), tube director (Campmor sku #67893)) or flow meter (Campmor sku# 75312) (accessories sold separately). The Octane XCT allows super easy access to small essentials without having to remove your pack. Designed to Carry: Extra layers, ultra-light weather protection, trail maps, energy bars, it has an ultralight essential gear pocket , quick access pockets on the waist belt and a multi use pocket on the shoulder strap. Bungee cords on the back let you add a light jacket.

A must have for the recreational runner!

This is a highly comfortable pack. Much more comfortable than I thought it would be. Great for running! I hated wearing belts and having things in my pocket. Put my phone, keys, etc in the pocket and go. Doesnt shift too much or chafe. great for the recreational runner who wants hydration with them.

Octane XCT

A truly great pack! I would like to see the plastic clip that keeps the water tube from swinging loosely either faced the other direction or swivel, as I hit the tube with my arm often and catch the hook with my sleeve if I choose not to use it.
JenB at on 04/04/2012

Excellent product and delivery and price

Used it for grand canyon rim to rim hike in a day.
Had enough for food, first aid kit and water. And a headlight.
No regrets!
If you need to carry anything extra then get something bigger!
Dr hc at on 05/05/2012

Great running pack

I wear this for longer trail runs and unsupported adventure/obstacle races. It holds a ton of water and has enough storage for a enough gels and energy bars to keep me going for 6+ hours.
Mike at Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) on 09/09/2013
Great pack, tons of liquid volume, makes 100oz very easy to carry. I prefer to the LR version. Great secure space for tons of other stuff: GUs, keys, etc.

A two-humped camel!

This is a big improvement over my old one-humped camelback in every way. It's easier to wear, fill and empty.
ijb at Campmor on 09/09/2013

This is my first hydration pack and I'm thoroughly impressed. Comfortable, large resevoir, and great build quality. Can't go wrong.
