Product Description

Camelbak's Octane 14+ is perfect for adventure racers, trail runners and athletes that need to haul gear for a full day of fast-paced activity. This super-versatile pack carries 100 ounces of water and boasts a fast, lightweight design, featuring a center panel that unzips to carry extra gear or zips closed to maintain a sleek, low-profile shape. The Octane also offers stash pockets on the waist belt for quick access to snacks and essentials when you're on the move, plus trekking pole holders and an internal pocket for separating gear. And, the Omega reservoir is easy to fill, the ventilating Air Director back panel keeps you cool and the waist harness stabilizes your load when the going gets rough.

HotovenNice and light!

Voted 4/5

Finally a light pack that can store just enough for a short day hike. It hold plenty of water, and with still enough room for a jacket, and food. Its comfortable, and adjust well. The straps are kind of a hassle to mess with though. You have to work with it to adjust anything.
