"Water Great Product! (Camelbak Lobo)"

If you are into cycling then you should consider whether a Camelbak would be a good investment for you. I have always hated having to remove my hands from the handlebars to struggle with a water bottle mounted on the fram of the bike and then have to look down to replace it. For me this was an issue of safety. A friend recommended a Camelbak and it has been one of the best purchases I have made.

Looks

The Lobo is one of the biggest Camelbaks on the market with a 3 litre fluid capacity and a 3.2 litre storage capacity. This is great for chucking a wallet, keys, phone etc in as well as a puncture repair kit. The bag itself is black in colour with grey trim and some snazzy reflective silver detail. It stands out well in the dark.

Comfort

The padding on the straps of the Lobo make it a very comfortable accessory to wear, this is further enhanced by a series of grooves allowing air to flow between you and the bag. This reduces the sweat generated which is a welcome addition. To keep it in place there are 2 clipped straps that fasten across the chest and below the diaphragm ensuring that everything stays where it should no matter how aggressively you ride.

Function

The drinking tube is guided up and over one shoulder leaving te mouthpiece within easy grasping distance and a short way from your mouth. Once in the mouth all you need to do is bite and suck on the Camelback's unique valve to ensure a steady flow of fluid. As soon as you stop biting the valve seals perfectly ensuring no leakage and no unwanted entry of foreign bodies.

Overall

3 litres of fluid is enough for the longest rides and using the Camelback feels very natural. Cleaning is a doddle with the anti bacterial finish to the internal bladder ensuring no problems. The extra pockets are handy for carrying your essentials and you know that the Lobo will not let you down.
