For some basic facts with description notes added.

Lobo now has a 100 fl. oz. - I used to have a 70oz but it would not last on long hot days, very happy to up the volume to this 100oz.  It nearly always lasts a day and I have a 30oz bladder sometimes in the pack as a backup/emergency, as I have run out before on a multi day trip.

Holds up to 200 cu. in. of gear - not huge but good for all sorts of snacks and small gear items.  I do have a larger (25L) waterproof back pack to take when more gear storage is necessary.  I bought the CamelBak extension tube and put the 100oz bladder in the bottom of the back pack when using this pack.

Big Bite™ valve is easy to use - yes easier than the Platypus mouth piece, at least for me it is.

Air Director™ ventilated back panel with Air Mesh shoulder harness - much nicer than the venting on the 70oz Rogue pack (this is a newer generation than the Rogue).  I get hot real quick and this ventilation is nice.

Overflow storage - the pack does expand a little to accommodate gear stuffed in an outside pocket areas.

Zippered external top pocket includes an music player holder; zippered lower pocket with a key clip and mesh organizer fits small essentials - really like it having zippers, great for security.

Reflective detailing - well yes there is but it is not the brightest.  I added a red flasher to my pack for extra visibility particularly if the following person, vehicle does not have their lights on when in low light conditions.

Camelbak Lobo hydration pack has a low-profile design that enhances stability and precludes pack from interfering with helmets - had not noticed it affecting my helmet/s so this must be correct.  Also having the removable belt loop makes a world of difference.  The 70oz pack did not have a belt loop and that is one of the two main reasons why I bought up to this pack. 

Needed the extra 30 oz and the belt loop.

Yes, I do recommend and would buy again from REI.
