    “Hydrate or die.” This is one of my favourite ever marketing slogans. CamelBak came out with it in the nineties, and it has a point.

    CamelBak M.U.L.E. Pro 14 Review

    I use a MULE from something like 2006 at which point it was considered large, even though now it looks decidedly slim. It can just hold pumps, spare tubes, a bit of food and maybe a thin jacket. But it’s been used loads and still shows almost no signs of wear.

    And I much prefer it to loading up my bike with stuff or wearing a bum bag. Yes, I said bum bag.

    I agree about the longevity thing, my MULE is over 20 years old and while I won’t claim it looks brand new, it’s pretty tidy and the only failure I’ve had on it was the buckle on the lower strap that I trapped in the car door one clumsy Sunday.

    As @molgrips though – I can’t help thinking these things look enormous! Mine is 1/2 the size. Is it like cars where the same model has gotten 3-5mm bigger per year (because bigger = better, right?) since it was first created and now it’s enormous?

    Smaller ones are still available. It’s just the model name that has come to apply to an ever larger bag.
