Review: Osprey raptor 14 vs Camelbak lobo

My first kit review video! It’s fairly clear from the review which one I prefer but both are really good hydration packs and I hope I’ve supplied enough information to help you decide which one to splash your cash on. If not, please ask any questions in the comments and I will get back to you.

Apologies for the sound!? I seem to have had some issues during the edit or upload as it was fine before this. Turn it up, I guess!

    Shame on your subscriber level, I don’t do vids and I have more subscribers?… πŸ™„πŸ™„ odd

    Not sure if you found it yet but the clear plastic section just before the mouthpiece is a twist lock system. The first time you twist it is pretty tough but it gets much easier after that.

    Thank you for this video. Very helpful! Thank you! It is to the point and shows the angles we all want to see – to have perspective of the bag. Exceptional video!

    You realise that the Lobo has clips for attaching a helmet too, right?

    Another great video bud. And a brilliant idea to compare the bags.

    Ive been using a raptor myself now for about 6 weeks, and i love it. My 1 draw back with it was the hose is designed to come over the right shoulder only and i prefer it over my left. Not a massive issue and im getting used to it now.

    I also swoped out the 3ltr bladder for a 2ltr to save weight + space as ive never drank 3ltrs ever.

    1 tip i offer. I like to 1/4 fill my bladder, seal it then blow it up via the hose, stick it in the freezer overnight laid flat, making sure the entrance to the hose isnt covered,

    Cold water all day also a nice way to keep your back cool on those super hot climbs πŸ€™πŸ€™πŸ‘
