Home>>Hydration Packs-Small for Adventure Racing, and Endurance Competitions
Typically, I attempt to match the mandatory packing list and the race length against (anticipated hours to complete) one of the packs I own. Most adventure races, marathon trail races and endurance mountain bike have mandatory gear lists as well as minimum requirements for water on-hand for the start of the race. I use one of the packs listed below depending on race requirements:

CamelBak Rim Runner: Primary uses: Peak bagging, and fast packing. Winter: Telemark and Nordic day trips.
CamelBak Cloud Walker: Primary uses: Same for my wife--Peak bagging, and fast packing. Winter: Telemark and Nordic day trips.
CamelBak HAWG: Primary uses: Adventure races: AdventureExtreme 12  and 24 hours.  I also use the original "old school" HAWG (1996) for mountain bike training and endurance racing.

Bottom Line: Match the race requirements and your personal needs to find the smallest and lightest pack available. These packs are considered large and are used on multi-day adventure races or multiple days fast packing. Small Hydration packs>>
