Hydration = happiness.

CamelBak created the Women's Helena 22 Hydration Pack for three-hour to all-day hikes enabled by three liters of fresh H2O from its Antidote reservoir. S-curved pack straps and a comfortable waist belt, both designed to fit a woman's shape, let you load up this bag's 1160 cubic inches of storage space and head into the mountains without looking back. Tough double diamond and nylon fabric can easily put up with the rigors of a little bushwhacking, while the DWR and PU treatments deny rain the chance to soak your belongings. The breathable Air Channel back panel and Air Mesh harness keep you cool amid the spring and summer heat by redirecting air through, rather than around, your back and shoulders. Throw your necessary trail items into the Helena's front or side pockets; you could even pack an extra water bottle or two if you plan to extend your three-hour hike. As you drain your water supply, compensate the empty space by tightening down the compression straps and returning the Helena to its comfortably snug fit.

Season after season, CamelBak's super scientists have been hard at work refining and perfecting the Antidote reservoir, the industry's most popular solution to hydration. At the turn of a cap (a quarter turn to be exact), you can open or close the reservoir, refilling and securing it again in seconds. Center baffling and a sleek design prevent your water from jostling about inside your pack while running, hiking, or hitting the park. When not off exploring the world, simply disconnect the tube using the Quick Link System and hang up the Antidote for proper drying or storage. Since last year, CamelBak's go-to reservoir system has actually lost some weight, reducing bulk in the fill port and offering you that much more convenience.

Good buy!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this bag for a 3 day backpacking adventure. The reservoir was the right size for our average 9 mile days. The pack itself was a pretty perfect size. I was able to carry a flannel, light rain jacket, and a couple of snacks. It might be a little too big for short hikes butI still wouldn't mind taking it.

Great Pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I purchased the Halena 22 as a day pack for all day excursions. I am pleasantly surprised how spacious the large pocket is and how much organization the small pocket provides. This bag allows me to carry 3 liters of water in the bladder, two additional large water bottles in the side pocket, layers of clothes for varying temperatures, and snacks for multiple people. I haven’t hit the tails with this pack yet but the material seems very durable and water resistant. I would feel comfortable putting anything from clothes to water sensitive devices in any pocket of this pack. I highly recommend this bag for the all day excursions but it might be just a tad too big for a quick out and back adventure.

She likes it!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Mom says: "I should probably preface this by stating that I am a hydration backpack junkie. I have them for cycling, for mountain biking, and for running. This backpack was purchased to use as a daypack for a hiking trip . As with the other Camelbak products, the hydration reservoir is excellent, easy to use and clean. The pack itself was perfect for my needs — just the right number of pockets and pouches for a daypack. "

Great backpack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This backpack is the perfect size for a day pack in my opinion. It has multiple compartments to easily carry all the items you may need and keep things organized. It's also very comfortable and supportive! I'm planning to use this backpack for an upcoming hiking/ camping/ road trip out to California.
