Hydration features and capacity

camelbak lobo hydration packThe CamelBak Lobo is a sleekly designed hydration pack that can support more than 4 hours of mountain biking with essential gear. It comes with a 100 oz. (3 L) Antidote reservoir and a Quick Link connection system.

With this system, you no longer have to stop your bike to drink your water; the Quick Link system consists of Pureflow tube at the end of which is the CamelBak mouth piece. The mouthpiece was fitted with CamelBak’s Big Bite valve. The valve only allows water to flow out when you apply a light pressure with your teeth.

The reservoir is protected with the Hydro Guard technology that inhibits growth of bacteria and preserves the inner lining. This means that water left in the reservoir won’t go stale fast. In spite of this, you should always try to refill the canteen with fresh water before every expedition.
