Purchased at huge discount from Galyans (Now Dick's Sporting Goods). Great size for day trips. Excellent support and frame does its job to keep back cool.
Came with CamelBak earlier designed water bladder. Had problems with plastic taste. CamelBak changed out for new design and no problems since. Original had an insulated tube but new bladder didn't. Don't see need for insulation unless winter usage.
Overall a great hydration pack but I think they have discontinued it....haven't seen it in stores lately. If you find one get it.
