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.

I bought this hoping I could use it for long runs (2+ hours) so it would free up my hands (don't like holding a water bottle) and to have enough water for hot Florida summer days, where we sweat buckets during long runs (marathon training). After some adjustments this works fine, almost perfectly. I have enough water/fluid for long outings, no need to refill while I'm running. Those referring to difficulties with the twist top need to work on their dexterity skills, it takes some getting used to, I admit, but it's not hard. To get any remaining air out of the bag and prevent sloshing while running, turn the bag upside down after filling it (and closing it), then suck out the air until water flows. Done. Perfect!

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 Classic by CamelBak:

          The cap on the bag is extremely difficult to screw on resulting in spilled water all over the bag and my biking clothes. It often takes 5 or more minutes to screw the cap back on. Very poor design and we would never purchase this bag again. Furthermore the bag is is virtually unusable so I just threw it away and will purchase from another brand. Buyer beware.

                        I am content with the product with the exception of the front pocket capacity. I generally carry a small/thin towel (rat towel), keys, multitool, small fob for aleve.

                        There is no room for anything else, including my wallet, etc.

                        Also I am confused because the description says 'bungee cord'. Where is this bungee cord?

                        very good pack however the valve does leak a bit, but because of this it gives you a little water cool down. Also, i wish they had added second strap to go across your chest for so it doesn't bounce around
