- M.U.L.E.™ LR 15 100 oz Hydration Pack
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 3 out of 5 by Todd M from Simple layout inside, nice looking outside The black snap in center back, broke the first time I used it. The male part of snap fell into bag, and I had to fish it out. Its a nice looking bag, but the strap layout is overly complicated double lower strap. If younwant a pack with basically only 2 compartments, this is your bag. I on the other hand have become accustomed to much better bags from Camelback. The low mounted reservoir is a good idea, but it has an additional strap to hold the reservoir in place, kind of overly complicated again. Tool tote is included, but I dont use it, I would rather have additional compartment. Phone holder on shoulder is fantastic, I wish all Camelbacks had that feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AirborneCav from M.U.L.E.™ LR 15 100 oz Hydration Pack I have several several smaller bladder packs and wanted one that was integrated into a moderately sized backpack. This was on sale and I could not pass up the opportunity to try it. I like this one with the various pockets. I upgraded the drinking tube to be insulated. I would recommend this one, especially if you can save some dollars on it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Phxvas from Disappointed Pocket designs could have been a lot better. The pocket on the strap for your phone is small. I could barely squeeze my Samsung 8 inside of it and feels like the zipper is going to break when doing so. And you won't be able to reach for the handlebars without discomfort between your arm and side of your chest due to the phone being in that pocket. The leftover dangling straps to the body strap fasteners have no where to go. It comes with these women's hair tie type things that are supposed to organize those loose strap ends. Good luck keeping track of those. I honestly can't even figure out how to get them back on the way they came and you do have to take them off to adjust the straps. Each pocket only has one zipper instead of having two that you can pull together. Very inconvenient. Getting to the bladder requires navigating several different things that are in the way and getting it back in is a frustration. Well frankly, the whole thing is frustrating. The only redeeming quality is the lumbar support the pack provides. That is the only reason I did not give it just one star. Even though I bought this pack for half price, I am returning it and will continue to use my older M.U.L.E., as it is way better even though it sits higher up on my back. I would not recommend this pack to a friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FNCN from Rain cover and hydration reservoir included I just retired my 19 y.o. Cloudwalker. I wanted a pack that included a rain cover and a hydration reservoir and the LR 15 met those criteria. While it certainly meets my needs for hiking, there are some features not satisfactory. The zip pocket inside the main compartment is so tightly tethered as to be unusable for anything but a credit card or a passport. The "extra deployable storage pocket" may be great when a helmet is supporting it, but for a hiker, this is a superfluous bit of gear. It does not snap lock to the side of the pack, it hooks to the sides and can be snugged up with straps. Whatever you carry in the extra storage pack just slides to the bottom of the pocket. Why did I buy this pack? It was the only one I found that included a rain cover and a hydration reservoir, thus it is cost effective choice for me, as I did not have to spend additional dollars on these features. I think it will be a good pack for me, it is light in weight, I like the hip-riding hydration system. If I could detach the "extra deployable storage pocket" and get more capacity out of the interior zippered pocket, it would rate PERFECT, as is....I rate it JUST FINE.
