CamelBak Octane 14+
Price Paid: 134 aud
I love this backpack! Mine has had 3 years of bashing around and held up well, the straps could be a little more durable overall great.
Trying to find another one now wished they made this size again!!
Price Paid: $85
I've used this pack in two adventure races. Good size for races of 12 hours and less in my opinion. I like the waist straps, very comfortable and the pockets come in handy to store food or small gear that you need frequently. The expansion zipper is a nice feature that allows you to stash larger gear such as a helmet in the large compartment.
I guess the greatest comment I can make about it is I never have to think about this pack during a race. Because it's lightweight construction, durability over the long run may be an issue. Highly recommended.
