I seen a lot of the top GNCC guys running the belt type hydration systems compared to a camelbak style. Curious to know if anyone has experience with the waist belt type of systems, and whats the upside compared to the camelbak type.

As someone who doesn't support Camelbak, I recently purchased an Ogio that I'm quite happy with. Seems like these "belt type" USWE packs are the way to go now

Camelback helps fund the Sierra club, correct?

Say NO to Camelbak brand - they are anti-OHV and donate money to groups that actively try to shut down riding areas.

I've run both styles, belt style supposed to lower center gravity. But to be honest I like the back pack style so when I crash I have additional padding on my back. Plus it helps cinch down my chest protector, keeps everything snug.

moto friendly brand.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co is also a big Sierra Club donator.

I run the Ogio Baja backpack and love it. Never tried the waist type, but I assume its a comfort thing in race scenarios for the Pros. Probably helps keep them cooler during the real hot races. Thats my main complaint with a backpack type, my back is flowing down sweat at the end of a ride

USWE are awesome, don't even feel them after a while, and if you use a neck brace the uswe will hold it down and make it more comfortable then without it

Camelbak is part of the $100,000 plus club, same values as Sierra club.



But back to hydration, I get it, camebak is generic for hydration as Kleenex is to tissues.

The USWE products are very good quality.
