The charge just shows CamelBak's expertise: it combines the best bladder with a oack that's impressively light, extremely comfortable and still big enough to stash a whole day's worth of kit.
It's a mystery how so much functionality has been engineered in here - once packs start getting this light we expect to lose some features or stability. Not so with the Charge.
The fit and bladder quality make this a stand out product. The curve and position of the shoulder straps bring supreme comfort, and you get a good balance with a hip belt. This pack moulds to your shape and moves with you so well you're barely aware of it. We put that exoskeleton, and the way its vertical channels flex around your back ans shoulders. The bladder is a favourite too - there's no taste and you can unclip and whip it out for refills without unthreading the tube.
