The Nomad and MULE are intended for similar purposes. Both packs provide space, compartments, and ease of carriage for those who wish to use them. Where they differ is the precise situations you would want to bring them.

The Nomad is somewhat similar to a school backpack especially its harnesses. You'll want to use this for college textbooks or something of that nature.

The Camelbak MULE is made for the outdoors with its hydration system and air ventilation. Buy it if you enjoy athletic events or physical activity in general.

Selected Reviews


Bike Radar

Dakine's Nomad is a bit of a benchmark pack and with good reason. Solidly built, the neat touches like the option to hide pad straps beneath the bottom of the bag and the two deep hip pockets indicate a pack that's been well thought through. There's plenty of space for tools in the front zip pocket, and all the main pockets are double zipped, too.
