There's a lot of overpriced or overrated gear companies but I don't think Camelbak is one of them. I had a MULE for a good decade until it got stolen when I forgot to lock my truck. Their current reservoir is still the best one I've encountered (the quarter turn trumps everything else to me, easy to fill, doesn't leak, never wears out) and their bite valve is fantastic. They'll also replace your straps and buckles for free if you email them, no questions asked. Helpful when you burn up a buckle on an exhaust pipe. Plus they are a US company, not just some cheap generic Alibaba-ordered pack they put some actual thought in their products. Their podium bottles are great too if you do bicycle stuff.
