If you’re looking for a good sized, comfortable, hydration-ready pack for any day to day adventure, look no further than the Pursuit 24LR by CamelBak. At 24 liters, you can fit all of your daily necessities plus an extra layer, just in case. While it looks like a mid to large size pack, it’s extremely lightweight and not as large as it seems at first glance.
We have used this on hut trips and hiking the towering canyons of the Utah desert and no matter what, it’s always worked and it’s worked well. It is amazing how comfortable this pack really is and how light it feels on your back. Two major features play into this comfort level. First of all, the lumbar reservoir makes a huge difference as it transfers the weight from your shoulders to your waist. It is always easier to use your hips for weight instead of the easily tiring shoulders. Secondly, the frame of this pack creates a lot of stability and sets the pack and it’s weight up off the torso. Not to mention the airflow that this design allows so your shirt doesn’t have a sweat shape pack when you stop for lunch.
The included hydration reservoir holds 3 liters of water and slips easily into the lumbar pocket. CamelBak has started doing a quick link system on the hydration pouches and so filling up your liquid has become so much easier. The hydration pocket is also designed for a full hydration reservoir so it’s very easy to slip in, zip up, and embark on your adventure.
Whether out in the backcountry on skis or hiking by foot, this is the perfect pack to accompany you on any daytime adventure. It will keep you hydrated, cool, and comfortable and you’ll be able to fit essentials and more. We are super impressed with the technology and design that CamelBak is putting into their packs and can’t wait to try some more for mountain biking, dirt biking, and running. They make something for everything so be sure to check out their website!
