Designed to give you the Low Rider advantage, the M.U.L.E. LR combines the storage and features of your favorite M.U.L.E. pack with a lumbar reservoir based design that offers more stability on technical terrain. Low Rider packs shift the load from your shoulders to your hips for a lower center of gravity and more freedom of upper-body movement. The M.U.L.E. LR is built around our top-of-the-line 3-liter Crux lumbar reservoir that delivers more water per sip. The flip down reservoir compartment also houses the tool roll and rain cover, so repair and weather essentials are always within quick reach. Additional storage on the harness gives immediate easy-access to essentials without removing the pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DuFresne23 from My new "go to" pack for literally everything I absolutely love this pack! I like how it brings the weight lower and has great support throughout your whole back. I've had REI, Osprey, Northface, and other packs for biking and hiking. This definitely has taken the reign for mountain biking and hiking! I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Weird Haircut from Hits the mark Just bought the pack this morning for rides in Moab. I loved the fit and 100oz reservoir. i am 6’ 1” and 250 pounds. I struggle to find straps on backpacks that are not too short. This pack has comfortable padded straps that work well with my thick upper body.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EconCycler from Short Hydration Tube, Weak Buckles I have been using CamelBak products since the 1990s. The Mule has changed over the years, it is my favorite of the CamelBaks. IMO CamelBak has started to cut corners on the durability of the materials they use. The buckle on the waist strap of my MULE broke and it seems to me the water/hydration tubes they are using are now shorter; the tube on my pack is 35 inches; for me I think a tube about 38 to 40 inches would be safer, more comfortable, and more functional. (If the tube is too long, customers can cut it to the desired size). The 35-inch tube is okay for hiking, but for mountain biking, and particularly motorcycling it is too short. I must bend my head down and to utilize it. That takes too much attention away from the trail, which can be dangerous and thus at times I choose not to hydrate because it simply takes too much time and is too dangerous. I suppose using shorter tubes saves CamelBak money, plus they can then sale longer tubes as post purchase additions; not sure this is what CamelBak is doing, but if so I guess I can understand it. They might also understand why I might now look at the competition. Below it asks "Would you recommend this product to a friend?" I clicked no, but it depends. For motorcycling - NO, at least not without getting a longer tube. For mountain biking - probably not, would like a longer tube. For hiking - probably.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rounder from Try before you buy The lumbar reservoir is not functional for me. The sizing/fit not comfortable for me. I tried on a few different hydration packs. Ended up going with another manufacturer, ending a long tradition of wearing Camelbak.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BWiman from Disappointed to say the least. I bought this pack less than two months ago. I have taken it on maybe 10 rides. Two weeks ago, when I was on a MTB trip in Colorado, this pack failed on me twice. The stitching where the sternum strap attaches to the shoulder strap failed completely, and the clip that holds the bottom cover up over the zipper for the bladder/tool roll compartment just fell out completely. I had to use safety pins on my brand new Camelbak just so I could have water on my rides during the trip. I have two Camelbaks that are both around 20 years old, and have been used and abused over the years. I have never had one single problem with either of them. Now, I buy a brand new one, and it fails catastrophically within the first 10 rides. Beyond that - the fit is not very good, the organization is very lacking, and the bag is just clunky to use in general. The zipper to the bladder compartment is almost impossible to get started when trying to close it. The bag just seems very poorly thought out, and was obviously built as cheaply as possible. I gave it 2 stars because the bladder is actually pretty nice. The bag though, is horrible and I would not recommend it. Sad to see the quality of Camelbak has gone so far downhill these days.
