Military Style Camelbak
#1
Minimal size Miltary style Desert Camo Camelbak - used once.

resim

This is allegeldy official US Military spec as it has the handle at the top which is added to help drag injured/dead bodies along with (so its tough!)

I can personally confirm I have not been injured or dead or dragged along by this feature  Wink

I upgraded to a Camelbak Mayhem when it arose on Ebay for dirt cheap which I couldnt refuse.

Offers invited...

Ive just grabbed it out of the cupboard....

Its a Camelbak MULE... which Im guessing is an older variety of this one:

It has a 100oz official Camelbak Bladder inside (give it a sterilisation) and the tubing has camo shroud/sleeve around it.

Storage-wise, the 2 pockets you see are the only ones on it, so its fine for shorter trail rides etc. You could easily get all your tools, inner tube(s) and some lunch in there.  You can slide a mini-pump in the bladder compartment.

The reason I decided no to go with it was:

1 : The Mayhem came up at a stupid price as Ive mentioned

2 : Our Afan trip was planned and I needed a bag which could hold pads/jacket etc, the Mayhem ticked more boxes for me.

This is the Mayhem

Depending on your requirements depends on what Camelbak you need - Personally, I couldnt be without one now, although Ive not used a bladder for ages, I prefer a bottle.  But the bags are perfect and designed for the job.

Just a note, the Mule on offer DOESNT have the air-director padding on it, I guess this was the last MULE before they added it.

Make me an offer if you want it, I can only say no.

Sounds good just to double check my maths 100oz is around 3L?

i may just take this off your hands, but as i said i wouldnt have a clue at how much you want £20?   Big Grin

the lack of jacket carrying doesnt bother me to much as i find that if you get it right you can wedge a jacket between the bag straps and your back,

i assume that unfortunatly the bag isnt bullet proof Wink you know for the odd time when i have to travel through stanhope :|
