Cargo packs designed with hydration at the core. Separate compartments keep cargo organized and water insulated.Designed specifically for the equipment and hydration needs of hikers and alpine adventurers.For racing, training or simply for comfort, Ultra-Light materials support the water you need without unwanted weight or bulk.

Minimalist ultra-light hydration pack for the final ascent or reservoir sleeve to throw in a larger multi-day pack – you get both with the Arête 18. Convert the Arête into a reservoir sleeve and place in your larger pack to be your hydration solution as you trek to basecamp. When you’re ready to go for the summit, convert it back to its pack form and pack your summit essentials. The 2 liter Antidote™ hydration system also folds into its own pint-size pouch so you can throw it in a suitcase or stash it in your backpack. However you use it, the Arête 18 is a pack that will come in handy wherever you go.

PACK CLEANING
We recommend wiping your pack with a damp cloth to remove dirt. If the pack is extremely dirty and needs a deeper cleaning, soak it in cool or warm water with a very mild soap. Rinse the pack thoroughly with cool water. If soap residue remains in the fabric, it may create suds if exposed to water or sweat.

DO NOT wash your pack in a washing machine. Machine washing may damage the pack or affect the integrity of the fabric and fasteners, and will void the Got Your Bak™ Guarantee.
 

RESERVOIR CLEANING
The best way to care for your reservoir is to clean and dry it after every use, especially if you fill the reservoir with anything other than water. However, if a reservoir has not been cleaned after every use, and mold or discoloration develops:

1. Use hot water and a CamelBak Cleaning Tablet. Or use 2 tablespoons of baking soda or bleach instead of CamelBak Cleaning Tab. Mix the solution inside your reservoir and elevate the reservoir above the tube and Big Bite Valve. Pinch the bite valve, allowing the solution to flow into the drink tube and fill the bite valve.

2. Let the reservoir and cleaning solution sit in the reservoir and drink tube for about 30 minutes.

3. Wash the reservoir with hot water and mild soap. Be sure to completely rinse away the cleaning solution in the reservoir and drink tube before using again. You can also use CamelBak brushes from our Cleaning Kit to scrub your reservoir and drink tube. Brushes are the best way to ensure you are scrubbing all of the areas of the reservoir clean.

4. Once the reservoir is clean, be sure to air dry overnight so no moisture is trapped inside, which can cause mold to grow.

These steps will make your reservoir safe for use. If there are still spots left behind, these are permanent mold stains that may not be removable. However, your reservoir is still safe and usable after you’ve cleaned it.
