I bought the Bandit with hydration system after watching the video on Instagram and have to say it's all it's cracked up to be and more. I needed a pack for the High Sierra Archery Shoot put on by Team Whiskey and it was perfect. Carried my water, my quiver, rain and cold-weather gear perfectly. Plus, the full-pack length zipper allowed me access to my gear without digging down through all my stuff. My next purchase will for sure be the Nosegunner for my range finder, which also provides a wonderful chest holster for a sidearm allowing for a more streamlined silhouette and less bulk when hunting and in the bush. Love Eberlestock!
Very comfortable, well-made, best pack I've ever owned. Comfortable all day
Fits my backpack. It had a bit of a weird smell when I first opened it. After cleaning the smell went away. Drying it out was a bit of a pain, but that's all camelbacks. The biggest pain to be had is the string that ties the cap to the body of the camelback constantly getting in the way when putting the cap on or taking it off. A flexible plastic band like you'd get on a water bottle would be greatly preferable, and make it just about perfect.
Great design, works flawless. Thanks again.
Brought it with me on a three week hiking trip, through Ouray, Telluride, and Zion National Forrest. Plenty of water for a day hike and plenty of stargaze for essentials.
This is a great longlasting piece of fear. Bought two back in 2010 and still have one of them. Bought 3 more for the wife and kids, same great design and materials. Opens easy for cleaning, hose valve is sturdy and the glass like inner on the bladder has never gotten funky even with water in there for an extended period. Planning on buying myself another bladder for my Big Trick. Never disappointed with any Eberlestock gear.
2 Liter / 3 Liter Hydration System
I haven't used it yet, as this is my to go bag, and it is great knowing I have a hydration system that fits right inside my back pack. Just fill and go.
Love the product and company! Huge Eberlestock fan!
I bought a 3L Hydration system to put in my Switchblade pack. It fit perfectly and held enough water for myself, my wife, and our son on a hike through Washington DC in 90° weather.
