What do you have? I am torn between the Camelbak Mayhem and the chaos. The Mayhem is actually bigger, holds more water but cheaper at the mo at Wiggle than the Chaos. I do love the brown Colour of the Chaos more thou, shame the Mayem only comes in Black.

I have a camelbak cloud walker.

I forgot the website, but they had legitimate camelbaks for up to around 50% cheaper. Mine's holding up great. I needed to replace the reservoir, because I went to fill it once, and it leaked out the bottom. It probably didn't help that I let it get all moldy in the reservoir by forgetting to empty it out for a long long time.

I've been using a Camelbak Rogue for the past few weeks and like it a lot. Only 70 oz but more then enough for my needs.

However, I hate the colors. I live where it's hot 3/4 of the year and with mild winters, so I most definitely will not be getting black. Thinking of the orange/grey.



I used to push carts @ Coscto Wholesale here in Phoenix and they purchased all of us those exact camelbacks. Very good no frills hydration. For running I would definately get the 1.5-liter model.

I'd think about getting a military Camelbak, as they are better built than the civilian ones. They also have insulated hoses, which means no nasty warm water when you first go for a swig, or frozen water in the winter. I'd recommend the Ambush or Mule if you need a bit of cargo room. You don't have to get them in camo.

Couldn't resist, the mayhem has extra 10% at wiggles this month, couldn't resist and got that now. Saw the Chaos in the shops already so i know how big it is and it's fine. The Mayhem is a little larger with a bigger water capacity, even thou i prefer the brown, black never go out of style
