Camelbak M.U.L.E.

Camelbak M.U.L.E.

Since Camelbak first launched the M.U.L.E. in 1996, mountain bikers have been telling them that it hits the sweet spot of size vs. storage: it’s lightweight, but big enough to carry three liters of water and a day’s worth of snacks and gear. The M.U.L.E.® has a narrow-gauge design that keeps it light and maneuverable—so it won’t get in your way. The latest edition is built around Camelbak’s Crux reservoir, which is easier to refill and delivers more water with every sip. They’ve added air channels to the back panel, helmet hooks, and compartments for stashing tools, keys and electronics. It also features a magnetic tube trap that snaps into place, so you can hydrate without taking your eyes. Buy here!
