User Review: CamelBak Rim Runner
Source: bought it new
Have a couple of year old model, very pleased with it — well made, great hydration, comfortable
- Quality construction
- Great hydration system
- Ample day storage
First off, worth noting that Camelbak updates their packs every year. The newest Rim Runner looks somewhat different from the model I have from a couple of years ago, so some features may have changed...
That said, the Rim Runner is a great daypack. It offers a good amount of storage, 3 liters of hydration, ample pockets and loops for a day's worth of gear, and great construction. Mine has a smaller front storage area with an organizer pouch, a larger main compartment, a small fleece-lined pockets for electronics, sunglasses, or other delicate items, and two external elasticized mesh pockets.
I can use the Rimrunner for a very light overnight trek with my small tent (w/rain fly and poles), a light fleece sleeping bag, small backpacking stove and fuel, food, etc. The hydration bladder is bomber and trouble-free, the whole hydration system works like a charm.
Construction quality is good, pack is comfortable to wear, and it's definitely an easy pack to recommend.
