We all know that besides the obvious practicality of using a backpack style hydration pack, they also simply look cooler in all of our pictures from the trail. However, there has been an undeniable resurgence in the fanny pack cool factor. Cool or not, maybe you prefer not to carry a full backpack for shorter rides, but still need more than a water bottle. This is where the CamelBak Palos pack comes into play.
The Palos 4 is a reservoir-based waist pack designed specifically for mountain biking. It's the ideal option for gritty riders who need more than a water bottle, but who don't want to carry a full-fledged backpack. As part of CamelBak's Low Rider MTB collection, the Palos anchors your H2O and cargo around your waist, offering a better center of gravity and leaving your shoulders and back liberated for a more natural range of motion. Also, no longer will you have to deal with an uncomfortable sweaty back.
Additionally, the Palos includes a 1.5-liter reservoir, storage for keys and a phone, an integrated tool roll to keep you prepped for mid-ride repairs, and overflow storage that lets you fasten soft armor to the outside of the pack.
If you weren't on the fanny pack wagon before, we bet you are now.
