Our iconic and versatile MTB pack is now designed to give you the Low Rider advantage. The M.U.L.E. LR combines the storage and features of the beloved M.U.L.E. pack with a lumbar design that offers more stability during aggressive downhill rides. Instead of concentrating pack weight on your shoulders, this pack shifts your load to your hips for a lower center of gravity and more freedom of movement. The pack is built around a brand new 3-liter Crux reservoir that delivers more water per sip, with a design that’s optimized for fast and fumble-free refills.

  • Magnetic Tube Trap™ keeps your tube secure and accessible when you need it
  • Stabilizing load-bearing hip belts with cargo optimizes a custom fit and keeps essentials close at hand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around Pack Really great pack that has been a huge help on all mountain rides and dirt biking. The low weight of the water feels like I'm holding 1L, not the actual 3L. The tool roll is a great place to keep emergency tools, but I keep a multi tool in a more accessible pocket. Very light pack that packs gear in well thought out way. Minor complaints, -I wish the waist belt zipper pockets were wrapped around more towards the front to make them more accessible -The tails of the waist band and the bladder compression straps are excessively long but easily fixed with scissors and a lighter. For reference I'm 6'2" at 185 lbs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reservoir is awful, pack is great Been using the Mule LR for a few months now, and overall I dig the pack. However the reservoir supplied with the pack was less than useful. I ended up swapping the reservoir from my old Hawg, and it works just fine. I've even gone back to the original reservoir to give it another shot and I'm just not impressed. It is rather difficult to get the reservoir in place, and once in place it is harder to refill than the older style reservoirs (I like refilling without having to take the reservoir out of the pack if possible). The new reservoir is just not a good fit in this particular pack.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed M.U.L.E LR Very disappointed, had a camelback for many years and the time has come to replace it. Was very happy with my old H.A.W.G so replaced it with A, M.U.L.E LR. Big mistake. Putting the bladder in is a nightmare really fidally. When it gets down to about 500ml you can’t get water out. The pipe comes out more to one side of the bladder, so if it creases and the water goes to the other side you can’t get any. Camelbak say the brand-new Crux LR reservoir delivers 20% more water per sip The bladder has bigger diameter pipe which takes 20% more effort to suck the water out, the end bite valve comes out at an angle that makes no sense. The old one comes out at 90 degres which works well, the new one does not so you have to bend the pipe round more which can kink the pipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection My first gen H.A.W.G. finally started to leave me wanting so I started hunting for my next hydration pack. I cross shopped everything. Ultimately it was between the Osprey Raptor and this. The LR bladder is a game changer. I don't notice this pack on my back when I ride - at all. I am a bit of a sweat-er by nature and this pack keeps me surprisingly fresh. Recently rode Gooseberry Mesa with this. Held the perfect amount of ice and water. Increased flow from the hose makes it easier to hydrate when you're sucking wind. I've never been let down by Camelbak quality - it's a "buy it for life" kind of product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack for day hikes! Be careful with bladder. Great backpack for anywhere from a half to a full-day hike, with an appropriate amount of storage space for some food, snacks, a spare layer or two, and personal items. I might have been able to use a little more storage space... 3L bladder capacity is great for longer hikes, and the magnetic clip is convenient. As is usually the case with Camelbak bladders, though, you have to take care to close it properly so it is fully and tightly sealed. It is easy for the threads to not line up and then it will leak all over the place. Make sure it is completely closed (look at it from the side on all directions and flip the bladder upside down) before placing it in the pack, and you'll be good to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fitting Hydo Pack I got the MULE LR 15 a couple of months and it has been the best hydration packs I've owned. The 3 liters of holding capacity is just perfect for a full morning or afternoon ride for my dog and me. I can load everything in it I need for the trail, without to much excess pack space left over. The bladder sits low and centered in the pack making the rest of the backpack sit securely through fast and rough terrain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid hydration pack At first blush, the LR bladder takes some getting used to, I found it a bit difficult to get the bladder into and in a proper position in the bottom of the pack without considerable effort. I felt I had to empty the other cargo I had in the pack to get the bladder in. I am sure this will become easier as I use the pack but my older M.U.L.E was not so demanding.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Falling apart after 2 months Enjoyed the backpack initially, it functions well. After two months the contoured back panel detached at the top. There is a rivet through some fabric and it just tore straight through. Not impressed for a "quality" product. Required to send it off for warranty evaluation, at my cost own cost.
