Since becoming the global leader in hydration packs Camelbak have spent a lot of time and money improving their features. The Camelbak Vantage 35 hydration pack has a whole host of features and functions which can enhance a day spent in the great outdoors. Firstly, the Antidote reservoir is large enough to keep you hydrated for a good few hours, the Quick Link system means that you can add some accessories such as the fresh filter.
The PureFlow delivery tube means that you can take a long swig of fresh clean water without it tasting like the inside of the bladder. The bladder is very easy to clean and refill thanks to the large quarter turn opening, and drying is just as simple as the folding arms lock into position holding the bladder open. The Vantage 35 hydration pack also has Camelbak’s Big Bite valve for easy drinking whilst on the move.
If you thought that Camelbak couldn’t possibly think of any other features to add, think again, even the harness has been designed with ease of use and comfort. The Dynamic Suspension harness has padded straps on the shoulders, and a hip belt which help distribute the load evenly.
There are a couple of things that I could find to complain about but nothing that would prevent you from buying the Camelbak Vantage 35 hydration pack, or even recommending it to a friend.
The pocket on the outside at the rear of the backpack is pretty pointless because, if the rest of the pack is full you would struggle to even fit a piece of paper into the pocket. The top pocket is also a bit redundant as it is too small for anything bulky such as a lunch box.
Camelbak have thought of just about everything when it comes to the Vantage 35 hydration pack. The Vantage 35 combines everything you could possibly need for hydration and carrying on a day out. There are several separate compartments to hold your stuff such as a first aid kit, water, lunch, camera, waterproof jackets etc. The back panel of the pack is rigid enough to provide support, but not so much so that it becomes uncomfortable to carry. The strap fittings allow the straps to be adjusted meaning that the pack will fit nicely on just about anybody.
