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.

        Comments about CamelBak Classic™:

        Like the product but suppliers aren't doing very well with the primary component. Leaking valve. This is supposed to hold water primary job and it doesn't do it as well as the earlier product I owned. A little more room for larger smart phone would be great and wouldn't compromise design.

        Comments about CamelBak Classic™:

        Don't change the style of a product if it works!!! I've used the classic since 1990 and loved it, but the current classic appears to be cheaply constructed, although I love the new colors. It takes too long to secure the cap so the water doesn't leak from it -- very frustrating. Already lost the device that keeps the tube secured to the reservoir, even though only used it several times. Bought the product at Academy Sports.

          Comments about CamelBak Classic™:

          Was this a gift? That's a tough question. I won it at Sea Otter Classic.

          And I've been rocking it on longer mountain bike rides ever since. It's a lightweight, unobtrusive pack with just enough room for my keys, a spare tube/c02/chuck, and a cliff bar.

            I biked nearly 3500 miles across America with this pack. the only issue is that the bite valve fell off. buy extra bite valves to be safe. amazing. kept me hydrated everyday. would buy again.

            • Unstable

            • Commuting
            • Day Trips

            Comments about CamelBak Classic™:

            The seams are sewn well. No matter how you adjust the straps, the chest strap rides up into a choke hold. The chest strap should be a few inches lower. Even after 2 recommended washes before use per the instructions the water still tastes like plastic. The bite valve is almost useless passes very little water. The only good things are that it holds a lot of water and it is easy to clean.
