    CamelBak Arete 18 Hydration Backpack - The Arete 18 Hydration Backpack by CamelBak is a 2-in-1 convertible pack used as a reservoir sleeve or summit pack. A completely versatile pack, the Arete 18 can be used as a hydration day-pack or turn it inside out and use it as a reservoir sleeve in a bigger pack for other adventures. It hauls 70 fluid ounces of liquid, plus anything else you might need for a day out in the wild.

    A breathable nylon back panel has articulating upper pods that offer great ventilation and maximum comfort. The low-profile Antidote reservoir offers two-liters of hydration capacity with HydroGuard technology to eliminate bacterial growth. The Big Bite valve is ergonomically positioned for easy drinking and self-seals after each drink to eliminate annoying drips. The PureFlow drink tube is kink resistant, unlike other reservoirs on the market whose kinks can permanently affect flow in the tube.

    If you are looking for a durable, versatile pack that will be whatever you want it to be, then you have found it with the Arete 18 Hydration Backpack.

    I used this pack on a weekend backpacking trip and it was so handy. Half way through the weekend we went on a short day hike from our camp and I was able to use it as just a reservoir sleeve, talk about convenient. I plan on taking this with me anytime I go out for a trek.
