You don't necessarily need to carry a ton of gear to head out on a long ride when there's no threat of bad weather. With nutrition bars providing plenty of energy and tubeless tires providing whole seasons of no-flat riding, you pretty much need a phone, a multi-tool, and an energy bar. Coincidentally, that's just about exactly what the Camelbak Lobo has room to carry. Well, that and three-plus hours of water.
The first thing you notice when you see the Lobo is its narrow profile. There isn't a whole lot of pack swinging around behind you. Not only is that good for weight savings, but it's also less cumbersome. Although it's made with durable 70D Diamond clarus and 420D nylon, the Lobo weighs just a pound. The less you carry, the less you sweat, which, in turn, means you have to replace less water. For folks who are really on the move, the Lobo has a convenient external fill feature that means you don't have to dig your reservoir out of your pack every time you need a refill.
