Remember that 30-mile out-and-back in Pisgah, or that 40-mile loop you rode in Moab? Of course you do. We're betting you brought more than a
20-ounce water bottle to keep yourself hydrated. Sometimes you can get away with a water bottle or an ultralight hydration pack-short rides like that are good for blowing off a little steam during your lunch break, or taking your niece out for her first trail ride. It's nice to get out, but you'll have forgotten about that ride by the weekend. The rides you remember require some carrying capacity. They require the Camelbak H.A.W.G. NV Hydration Pack.
The H.A.W.G. isn't just bigger, though. It's better. From the advanced NV suspension system designed to keep the load away from your back to the fixed waist belt with easy-access cargo pockets, the H.A.W.G. sets a new standard for hydration packs. It's a cross between a hydration pack and a mountaineering pack, and it should be. After all, you aren't just going out for a buzz around the block, you and your trusty ride are headed into the wild blue yonder.
