Can you use this in packs other than a Camelbak? Like a regular day pack with a reservoir compartment?
KEN W Yes, these can easily be used in a pack other than a camelback. I use it in a very large backpack of another brand, that has a large hydration sleeve. there are a number of connect points on the top of the camelback reservoir that allow it to be used in a range of compartments. I have the large, 3-liter model, so it is big, but it can be used in daypacks as well. I carried it in an REI "flash" series pack, on our final ascent to Humboldt Peak in the summer of 2011. I also carried it in my High Sierra Long Trail 90 as we did 80 miles in Philmont in the summer of 2012. So, not only versatile, but durable.
ALEXANDER S Yes you can - I do use them that way. Make sure your day pack has a compartment of a sufficient size. Camelback has different reservoirs, so you can find the one with the right dimensions.
GARY D Yes, it can be used in any pack. It wil work best if your pack has a loop or small clip at the top of the inside of the pack because there is a plastic hook on the top of the camelbak to keep it from sliding down inside the pack as it gets emptied out.
MICHAEL B Yep, no problem. I bougjt mine as a replacement and it worked just fine.
DIANA S Yes, but be sure to check the dimensions/capacity of the pack first to make sure your reservoir will fit. I use my reservoirs in my childrne's REI brand dy packs and they fit perfectly.
LARRY G Yes you can use it in pretty much any pack with a reservoir compartment.
PHIL K I'm using mine with an off brand hydration pack that I salvaged from my son when the reservoir gave out. I think it would work in any pack with the basic configuration for a reservoir.
STUART T Yes. You can put this in any pack with an internal reservoir compartment large enough to fit it.
WENDY D Yes. Its an awesome reservoir
BRETT M I bought one that I use in a North Face daypack and my full size back pack as well. Works great!
James T Yes. The 100 oz reservoir fits well in my Kelty Redstart day pack as we as my larger packs. The pack just has to have an opening for the line. Most do.
