CamelBak Mayhem review

The Mayhem has a particularly narrow footprint, and its deeply grooved aeration system should do a good job of sucking cool breezes down sweaty backs, but in practice when heavily loaded, the pads spread outwards, allowing the base of the pack to curl in and render all those carefully engineered channels pointless. Still, there’s plenty of storage space – both for traditional purposes like food and tools and for technowhizz ride accompaniments like video cameras – and the pack has a dedicated hard disc recorder/video camera pocket, with cable port, as well as several ordinary kit pockets and a three litre bladder. Portage straps for full face and pads rattle about a bit when not in use but careful use of the strap tidies solves this.

A pack that’s well thought out but suffers from over-stretching
