The CamelBak’s SnoBlast backpack is especially designed for winter activities such as skiing, winter hiking, snowshoeing etc. It has a volume of 15 liters + 2 liters for a hydration bladder. However, the main compartment can be extended for 6 liters when additional space is required. The main compartment can be accessed from the top (two zippers) as well as from the front side (full-length front zipper). This comes in handy when you are wearing gloves as it allows you to completely open the main compartment and thus easily find specific items. All zippers feature long loops so that you can easily use them with the gloves on. Additionally, the backpack is equipped with one zippered pocket at the top, one zippered inner pocket and one fleece-lined pocket. It also has a hydration bladder pocket which efficiently prevents the water in the bladder from freezing in the winter.
The hydration bladder pocket is placed between the main compartment and the backpanel. The pocket is well-insulated in order to keep the water in the bladder at normal temperature. The tube runs along the insulated shoulder strap so that the water doesn’t freeze at low temperatures. This design allows you to use the hydration bladder efficiently also in cold weather. CamelBak’s SnoBlast backpack comes with the brand’s Antidote hydration bladder with a capacity of two liters. CamelBak Antidote hydration bladders are known for their good durability and functionality. The Antidote hydration bladder has a fairly wide cap closure which allows you to easily refill it as well as clean the reservoir with a sponge.
The CamelBak SnoBlast backpack has several attachment points which allow you to conveniently attach equipment on the outside of the backpack such as a helmet and snowshoes. It is equipped with a sternum strap and hip belt for good fit and stability. The backpanel is well-padded for maximum comfort.
All in all, the CamelBak’s SnoBlast backpack is a great option for day trips in winter as it offers superb functionality and comfort.
