Up your hip-pack game with the CamelBak Repack LR 4L Pack. This compact hip pack loads you up with a whopping 1.5-liter hydration bladder to quench your thirst on the trail, and features updates that push beyond its predecessor, the Palos, for superior fit and utility on the ride. Carrying a name like Repack we'd expect the bag to carry some clout, paying homage to the founding fathers of mountain biking who spent race days sliding sideways and repacking coaster brakes so that we could one day evolve to the trail dominating beasts we have today, and it does just that, packing functionality into every square inch of its small stature.
The Repack LR crams six functional pockets into its construction, with space for your multi-tool, spare tube, and gummy bear stash to keep you going. Even when fully loaded with trail snacks and water it manages to stay more stable than many other hip packs, this is largely due to the redesigned buckle system that takes queues from hiking packs. Instead of a backwards pulling strap, the straps cinch forwards which makes it easier to get the leverage you need for securing in place, and with the forward cinch design you'll find that the straps are less likely to slip once snugged down. This translates to an enduro ready hip pack that won't slide around on you when you're railing into berms and gobbling up rock gardens.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought this for a friend who bikes a lot and was looking for something different than the typical backpack style. He says it's very comfy and he loves it.
Gave it away for the holiday season, but was VERY tempted to keep it for myself. Great storage, good ability to carry water, and comfortable. Win Win Win.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This hip bag has changed my riding! Now when I'm riding on hot summer days I don't have to deal with my back overheating and the giant sweat spot created from wearing a backpack. I barely even notice I'm wearing it when riding and it stays secure over bumpy trails and drops. The magnetic hose clip makes it easy to take a sip on the go and reattach the hose without looking down. I can carry a liter of water, hand pump, patch kit, tool, gopro and snacks all in this bag - everything necessary for a great day on some singletrack!
Exactly what i was looking for! Only thing was the clip on the hose popped off on first real rocky sections. 5 stars for everything except the clip.
