    I need a low profile hydration pack in black, something similar to the camelbak mule but sub $100. Any ideas would be appreciated. I have a few bladders so even better if it came without a bladder. Thanks.

    Yeah, I actually have one of these in green, (discontinued color I think). I only paid 15$ for mine as it was on closeout, but even at 30$ it is not a bad option at all. Straps are comfortable, back has some ventilation and the pack can actually carry quite a bit. I use it for a non-tactical option, and the bladder isn't half bad either. No leaks so far, for that matter no complaints so far. Straps are a bit further apart than the MULE where they attach to the pack, but if you can, go see one in person. Probably not a cheaper option out there that is as well constructed.

    Pretty sure this is the same pack, just re-branded. Other colors available too. Wal-Mart might have it cheaper from time to time.

    Checkout Woot which is Amazon owned site and ships free with prime. I have been a customer before Amazon bought Woot.

    Woot has several Camelbaks listed.

    Well, I made a quick decision and bought a discontinued Assault 10L Hydration Pack from Source tactical for $70 without the bladder. I have a Source bladder so that fits just fine. It’s a touch bigger than I wanted but well made with ykk zippers. [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
