I recommend getting the hydration bladder for the pack

Phenomenal backpack! This has outperformed any other pack I've had. I have taken long mileage, multi-day trips and this has accommodated all of my gear with ease. The new AG (Anti-Gravity) helps evenly distribute the weight of the pack, making it feel much lighter. There are a ton of adjustment straps that help tailor this to your specific fit. I recommend getting the hydration bladder for the pack, though any Camelbak bladder would do just fine.
