Camelbak Circuit vs Camelbak Marathoner

Both the Camelbak Circuit and the Camelbak Marathoner are exquisitely made. They are comfortable to wear and they have excellent hydration storage capacity.

The Camelbak Circuit offers a handle that is ergonomic in its design. This makes the reservoir easier to refill. Also, there is the provision of a lever that turns off and on as needed, which is central to preventing water from leaking out.

The Camelback Marathoner is made to contour well to the body. It is rather streamlined and provides the level of hydration storage you are looking for.

CamelBak clearly worked with their team of athletes and ambassadors to design the well thought out Circuit running vest. Thanks to a 1.5 L capacity the Circuit Vest works well for runs under 3 hours in length. If water is available on the trail, then the potential to run long distance in the CamelBak Circuit vest becomes unlimited.
