Summary

This bag goes into my top-ten best purchases of all-time.

Pros

  • Multiple uses
  • Customizable
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Small Storage Space

I've used this for so many different activities. It's originally designed for biking, but I've also used it as a day pack and as a travel bag.

The storage space is quite small, but with all its clips and pockets and some good planning, you can customize it for multiple different uses. I've even been able to fit enough in (and around) it to hike up a 4,000-meter mountain!

I also take this whenever I travel abroad. With its many interior pockets and secure straps, it's a safe, non-bulky alternative to a purse in which I can have everything I need close to me—passport/cards, money, phone, map, food/water.

I've gotten so much use out of this little bag, I rate this as one of the top-ten best purchases I've ever made.

The most important thing you can bring on an all-day ride is enough water. When rides get up into the 20 to 25 mile range, it can be tough to carry enough, especially in hot, dry climates. The Camelbak L. U. X. E. Hydration Pack can comfortably haul three full liters of water, plenty for three or more hours of riding. The L. U. X. E. is also equipped with a women-specific harness and back panel design. This means more comfort in an ergonomically correct fit, essential when you're on your bike for a couple hours or more. Stretch overflow storage, a media pocket, a bike tool-specific pocket, and convenient waist belt pockets make for easy organization and put your things right where you need them so you can get to them in a hurry.
