Camelbak Kudu 12 Hydration Pack - 2017
The award-winning K.U.D.U. 12 provides gear storage and hydration with the highest CE-certified level of back protection, so every descent is covered.
 
All of our packs are designed to take a beating, but none more than the K.U.D.U.™ The narrow-gauge counterpart to the K.U.D.U. 18, this pack is built for the enduro racer looking for a lightweight combination of hydration, protection and cargo. The flexible back protector panel absorbs over 94% of impact in a crash and is designed to handle multiple blows. The Impact Protector™ is made of flexible, lightweight foam that moves with your body, so you’ll get the protection you need without feeling like a tank. And the wider waist belt and dual sternum straps keep the pack positioned securely.
 
With 3 litres of hydration and room for stowing body armor and a full face helmet, the KUDU can go the distance between far-flung stages in an enduro race. If the weather turns, an integrated rain cover pops up to shield your gear, and there’s a secure half-shell helmet carry for aggressive descents while wearing your full face. We’ve also added a bike tool organizer roll that fits into a cargo space, so you can easily grab your tools and get to work.
 
Features:
  • Compatible with the brand new Crux which delivers 20% more water per sip, with an ergonomic handle for easier refilling, and an on/off lever that makes it easy to prevent leaks. (Crux sold separately) 
  • Impact protector back panel absorbs over 94% of impact in a crash.
  • External attachment points for carrying a helmet and armor.
  • Includes a bike tool organizer roll.
  • Stabilizing load-bearing hip belts with cargo optimizes a custom fit and keeps essentials close at hand.
  • Rain cover keeps your pack and gear shielded from inclement weather.
  • Dual adjustable sternum straps secure your pack in place in the event of a crash.
It's a really nice hydration pack, high quality manufacture, comfortable to wear, the perfect size for a multi tool, a pump, a small rain jacket and some small snacks. It has 2 pockets on the front for snacks or smartphones which I really appreaciate. Because of the back protector, it gets a little hot on the back on long rides, but it's okay for me.
Great bag, lots of room for all your gear.
Feels comfortable when I ride and enough space to put things inside..
Feels a bit stiff when you first put it on, but you soon forget about it when you start pedaling. Just the right number / size of pockets. The protection feels substantial.
