Camelbak is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. You’ll notice some retro colour and graphic schemes in commemoration of their history in the action sports community. New this year is the K.U.D.U pack, available in both 12 and 18 L capacities. We put it to the test:
Also available in Black/Green and Grey/Pink/Blue for those that aren't into this bright scheme.
Also available in Black/Green and Grey/Pink/Blue for those that aren’t It’s easy to see the trend of enduro specific as being a bit of a marketing buzz. However, for every few pieces of gear that simply had the “all mountain” label swapped for “enduro”, there comes along some fresh kit that offers innovative, performance oriented benefits, often favouring trail riders as much as competitive enduro racers. Enter the CamelBak K.U.D.U., which is available in both 12l and 18l sizes, both with a 3l water reservoir.

There is a long list of features packed into these bags, but the most noteworthy is the spine protection plate, which CamelBak dubs the “Impact Protector”, and they claim absorbs 94% of the impacts from a crash. This is an obvious benefit for the enduro race crowd, where the bag will be worn while riding full-on downhill tracks, yet without proper body armour being practical over the course of the day. However, enduro racers are obviously not the only ones who will be wearing their pack in extreme terrain, and with the Impact Protector being easily removable, this will be a valuable option for many aggressive trail riders. The spine guard is also safe for multiple impacts, so it need not be replaced after every major crash.

The K.U.D.U. also sports a handy tool roll and storage compartment, which keeps access to tools quick and organized when you need them, an outer flap than can fully contain an open face helmet, tethering straps at the bottom of the pack for easy access to extra gear (typically knee pads or an extra layer for me), and a rain cover that tucks into a small, lower pocket. Some more conventional features that adorn the pack is a pair of sternum straps, with a wide, pocketed hip belt, two large external pouches for carrying extra water bottles and a fleece lined optics pouch.

I got my hands on the K.U.D.U. 18 to test its meddle. This seemed to be the better option for me, as on an average ride I tend to drink lots of fluid, pack lots of a food, have an obsessive compulsive approach to packing tools, and very often end up packing extra layers, lights, a trail saw, and/or a couple post ride tall cans. I ask a great deal of my riding packs.

While the K.U.D.U. is not quite the largest bag offered by CamelBak, it is certainly close. This often arouses some trepidation about having a floppy mass strapped to your back that bounces around on every drop. The K.U.D.U. turned out to be very well managed in this regard, however. The pack is wide across the back, and keeps the cargo in a fairly low profile, rather than letting it protrude outwards. The large waist belt, which is easily adjustable on the fly, and sternum straps support the bag very well. The base design of the bag was clearly well thought out in its ability to carry big cargo over the roughest terrain – an essential element to an enduro race bag. I don’t know that I found much benefit from the second sternum strap myself, and I didn’t bother doing it up most of the time. But I’m sure it was added due to demand, and different body shapes and riding styles will see differing values in this feature.

The spine protector may be a trivial feature for some. How often does one need a spine protector while trail riding? Knee pads will work in your favour several times per season, and many riders will be thankful for the saving grace of a helmet at least once per year. However, most riders will go their entire life without needing a spine protector. That being said, in the chance you do need it once, it will have been worth wearing it your entire life for that one occasion. Thankfully, CamelBak has done such an exceptional job of tucking this into the bag, you won’t mind wearing it at all. I swapped the Impact Protector in and out many times during my time with the K.U.D.U. and it had very little effect on the fit or comfort of the bag. With a long tailed Troy Lee A1 helmet, only did I ever take notice when looking way up the trail in very steep chutes. Luckily I did not have to test the integrity of the Impact Protector during my review period.

I was very pleased with the small features on the K.U.D.U. While I didn’t originally think I would use the tethering straps for gear at the bottom of the bag, they came into regular use for me, and the helmet flap turned out to be very handy when carting gear around before and after rides. I don’t think anyone will deny the convenience of a tool roll in a fixed compartment and I found the lined optics pouch was also a favourite of mine, as I find myself stashing my eye wear quite often.

The bag was not without a couple small hangups, however. It took quite a while for the rubber taste to rinse out of my bladder. Not an issue I’ve had with a hydration pack for many years. I didn’t look into whether this is an anomaly amongst these bladders or not, but after a couple months it’s mostly gone. I also think that a few more compartments could have been added into the main pouch. Aside from the compartment for the tool roll, there is just a zippered mesh pocket at the top, which I typically reserve for my cell phone, and an open mesh pouch right at the bottom. I find this results in all my goods piling up in a mess at the bottom of the bag, which doesn’t distribute the weight as well as it could, and at times makes it hard to dig out my wallet, keys or Clif bar when needed. I don’t think either of these are deal breakers, but worthy of mention. Some may also find the pack to be a bit hot on the back. I deal with the heat pretty poorly at the best of times, so I personally don’t notice much difference between the purportedly cooler and warmer bags I’ve tried. But those who live in warmer climates may want to take this into consideration.

This K.U.D.U. 18 comes with a MSRP of $325 CAN, while the 12l, model goes for $278. Certainly on the upper end for a hydration pack. However, the K.U.D.U. also packs in enough features to justify it. Surely the Impact Protector does not come cheap, and the fit and finish are top notch. What we end up with is a riding pack that can be a valuable piece of kit for the enduro racer or aggressive all mountain rider, to the average trail rider who often carries a heavy load and also wants something for their big mountain riding vacation.

Immediately, you’ll notice it is a full-featured pack, not skimping on features in favour of light weight or a minimalistic look. One of these is the much-anticipated integrated back protector, a quickly growing niche in this market.
Camelbak Kudu 12 protector

The pad is made from three layers of flexible, high-density foam developed with Austrian company Komperdell. It adds 280 g to the weight of the backpack (the bag weighs 1210 g), heavier than some competitors but with the advantage of more protection. Unlike the others, the Camelback pad is a certified Level 2 protector, providing twice as much protection as a level 1 protector (when it comes to force absorption), so the extra weight is well worth it.
Other than holding a helmet, these straps over the bag keep the weight close to your body and secure from bouncing around. The K.U.D.U has six of these, which can really compress to volume if needed.

The K.U.D.U 12 is designed to be wide and flat rather than deep as it is packed with gear. This is to keep weight close to the riders body and reduce movement during aggressive riding. Combined with the dual chest straps, the pack stayed relatively steady when riding. The helmet storage feature worked without complaint with both open and full-face models.
Presumably the two chest straps keep the shoulder straps correctly positioned and add some more friction, but it is one more clip to deal with.

The 3 L hydration reservoir is top-notch as expected of this brand. The large round opening is very easy to open, fill and close because it provides some structure to the bag. The hose unclips without issue and all parts can be detached for cleaning. It features two foldable arms that prop it open to dry, very well thought out!
The padding over the shoulders and down the back is lightweight but also thicker than some competitors. I found it to be very comfortable.

Not the best hot-weather pack: There is a channel down the middle of the back for airflow, however, almost no space for airflow to the sides.

Although it is in a separate compartment, with the 3L bladder full, there isn’t that much space left in the bag. Easily enough for the essentials but not for a heavy jacket or food for a long, epic day trip. If that’s what you have in mind, I would buy the 18L model. For most rides the Kudu 12 is more than adequate.

Inside the main compartment, there are two, easily access pockets for organization and a mesh bag near the top. I tended to use that one a lot because I’m lazy and it can be accessed by only partially opening the main zipper without unclipping any straps.
After 25 years of experience, we know one thing for sure, Camelbak knows how to make a durable product. The materials, seams, zippers are all quality and we have no concern about long-term durability.

Camelback Kudus Review (10 von 12)

Fortunately there are a few external compartments. The sunglasses pocket is very handy and I use it for many things, in fact, I wouldn’t mind another similar pocket to keep things separated up there. Stashed underneath, you’ll find a rain cover.

On the hip strap you will find one storage location on each side. I find these to be the most important because they don’t require taking the bag off to access. The large straps are comfortable and keep the pack planted on your back.
I wouldn't recommend putting anything big and not flexible (a smartphone) in the hip pockets but its great for snacks or a small tool.

There is a tool roll included that fits in the main compartment. It keeps things organized but I prefer to not add any steps to accessing often used tools.

Conclusion: At 159 € and 1210g, you are paying for the outstanding Camelbak build quality and back protector. The Kudu is good-looking and well-thought out piece of kit. It works as intended and the Level 2 back protecter is reassuring. Storage, organisation and comfort is good but not the best, especially if you live in a hot climate. If your riding involves long distances and extra gear, the 18L model is probably a better option. (Geplaatst op 11-03-2016)

If an ounce of protection is worth a pound of flesh, then is it safe to assume a pound of protection is worth 16-pounds of flesh? Camelbak seems to think so, especially if we’re talking about spinal cord protection. Their new K.U.D.U. (Kinetic Ultimate Dampning Unit) 12 and 18 packs feature a removable Impact Protector stashed inside the bladder sleeve, which is rated to CE Level 2 and said to absorb approximately 95% of impact. The material used is flexible, weighs almost exactly one pound, has a little bit of ventilation, and can take multiple impacts - it’s not a “one and done” system.

We’ve had the 18-liter capacity version of the new K.U.D.U. for a few months now, and put it through the wringer having used it on four international ride trips within that timeframe. Besides the added protection that we were fortunate enough to never actually test out, the pack in general rides more securely than many other packs, partly thanks to a new-to-Camelbak dual sternum strap. Those, in combination with a wide, secure belt and a low-profile back interface, seem to keep the K.U.D.U. in place throughout most riding situations.

The CE Level 2 rated Impact Protector can take multiple hits without compromising its integrity.

The back panel is mesh and ventilated, but isn’t quite as airy as Camelbak’s NV ventilation system. There was a slight improvement in temperature regulation with the Impact Protector removed, but in general, the K.U.D.U. runs a touch on the hot side when compared to other Camelbak packs. It was never an issue on winter or fall days in Colorado, but riding in the desert of Oman got a little toasty with temperatures in the mid-80’s and no shade to speak of.

Compartment organization in the new K.U.D.U. is nicely laid out, and features an integrated tool roll, which is something new for Camelbak as of 2015. The roll is great for organizing small bits, and makes them easy to find with a full, 18-liter pack. On the flipside, for rides where tools were needed regularly - like on a maiden review bike voyage - opening up several compartments to get to tools got a little tedious. So, the tool roll is probably better off being used for items that are rarely needed. All the other compartments came in handy for multiple items, and the cavernous main compartment always seemed to have room to spare, even with a big, bulky DLSR camera stuffed inside it. Keeping everything inside the pack dry and clean is easy, thanks to the deployable, removable rain cover stashed in a hidden pocket on the bottom of the pack.

Overall, the Camelbak K.U.D.U. 18 is a fantastic hydration pack, with an added bonus of protection. It may not be the first choice for hot, humid rides, or for riders who have a tendency to overheat, but for a cool weather or alpine pack, it’s just about perfect. (Geplaatst op 11-03-2016)
