"Evolve into a one humped camel"

Camelbak - Lobo

Camelbak - Lobo

I was looking for someting to stop the disruptance of leaning down and reaching for a water bottle, when hurtling down a slippery hill, or finding the nearest cafe on the mountain to quench my thirst. i spotted a small blue tube making it way over a fellow boarders shoulder and went to investigate! it was a camelbak.

The Lobo has a large blue resevoir in the heart of it, this has the capacity to hold 2.1L(70 oz), and a little blue tube running to somewhere near the mouth. however i found that in teh freezing conditions of a glacier or very cold snowy day, the tube has a tendency to freeze! this can easily be sorted with the use of a "camelbak thermal control kit"(£14.95), this kit includes a standard Bite Valve mouthpiece, Bite Valve cover, insulated tube cover and 46 inch delivery tube. and will stopte water freezing in thos icy conditions! brr!

for storing extra things that you may have brought along, the camel back provides a small pouch, however in my discovery this can rarely hold much more than a couple of chocolate bars so nothing big. it also has a bungee cord, this allows you to take off an item of clothing and strap it securely to your back!

the Lobo is designed for use with bikes, so i use mine with bikes too, i have two bottle holders on my bike and wondered the point of having a camelbak, i quickly found that if i used bottles that the mud thrown up by the wheels soon covered the nossle to the bottle and i found myself without water!! so using a camelbak on dirty trails definately helps ALOT.

to clean the camelbak resevoir, i just wash it out with water a couple of times and then hang it up to dry, alternately you can buy a resevoir dryer that is designed to fully dry out the resevoir.

i love my camelbak, it is stylish and really comfortable. i would recommend this product to anyone who skis, snowboards, and bikes or runs. as i have used my camelbak for these sports and have found them to be incredibly useful.
