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.

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 H.A.W.G. NV® - Discontinued:

    Got as a replacement for an older model. So far has been solid for my day to day. The rain cover has protected my gear so many times walking home from work on the days I didn't bring an umbrella (all days ever). Inner divider tore but Camelbak has great customer service and sent me a new one immediately.

    Comments about CamelBak H.A.W.G. NV® - Discontinued:

    I use this bag as my primary work bag. I am an engineer and I don't carry heavy items in my bag. The different compartments were the primary features I liked. The fleece pocket for glasses and the zippered waist-strap pockets for my phone and wallet sold me on this bag. I keep my pens, small pad, and other miscellaneous things in the deep organization pocket. On the opposite side, there is another deep pocket intended for bike tools with an elastic loop for a pocket bike pump; I use this pocket for my laptop charger and I hook a Maglight flashlight in the loop. You can get a 13" laptop, and maybe a 15" one in the main compartment. The overflow pocket is large and can fit any standard size bike helmet or a couple of bottled waters.

    I haven't used the Antidote bladder yet because I typically use this bag for work. However, I plan to use this bag hiking soon and will fill it up and test it out. The new NV back panel felt odd initially. I found out it feels better after you put weight in the bag so it rests against your back. My back still sweats a lot, but the NV back panel is comfortable after you get use to it.

    Overall, this bag is smaller than a comparably priced CamelBak daypack, but I was still impressed so I bought another one for my son as a gift.
