Camelbak has a wide selection of hydration packs to choose from. The MULE and Ambush are for people who want a hydration pack with some tactical utility.

The MULE is great for hydration and carrying some supplies with you, but it lacks many of the extra features you might see with the Ambush.

The Ambush is a tactical backpack for those who want all the trimmings. You'll have protection from nightvision detection, camouflage, and other important assets available to improve your safety during an outdoors emergency.
