    Camelbak Ambush

    I have and use the heck out of a Camelbak "Ambush". It holds three liters of liquid and stores 550 CI of stuff. Easily accomodates a weapon, cell phone and flash light.

    It is very rugged. For this reason it may not be the best choice for a cyclist but great for general use.

    I ride a bike too. I ride on average 200 miles a week on mine. I also end up being on the road at night a lot of the time especially at this time of year.

    I have a Camelbak and I love it. I would highly recommend you get her one, they are perfect for bikers. What ever model you get for her, make sure you get it in the Hi-visibility color scheme. I have a Hydrobak 07 model in the hi-viz color scheme. It reflects headlights from cars very well.
    On the Camelbak website (HERE) go to Sports/recreation, then hydropacks, view all, then it is the last one to the right on the top row.

    Just out of curiosity, why have you not gotten a bike and joined her? It is some of the best exercise you can get and it is a hell of a lot of fun. Something you and your spouse can do together is always a good thing.

    don't go snowboarding and put beer or margaritas or vodka and punch or any mixed drink... or anything besides water. The bladder will never be the same. no joke.

    Blackhawk is selling disposable bladders now for their Hydrastorm products that are reasonably priced for those of you who hate to clean your bladders or have one that is permanently tainted from prior beverages!

    I'm sure that I am in the minority but I hate camelbaks for biking. I'd rather use a waterbottle on the bike. I hate having that much weight on my back and shoulders while hunched over the bike. Then again I use flatbars and have a 0 degree rise stem so it's pretty agressive.

    I have a wide variety of Camelbaks........I was one of their first users back in the early 90's.

    I have carried handguns in most of them at one time or another. Look at one of the packs that some sort of storage area, that should keep the weapon from getting wet.

    As several other posters have commented: check out the Goblin fanny pack.

    I got the Camelback Havoc this past spring. It has an Mp3 pocket (gun pocket), holds the "big" bladder, and has "holders" for my full face helmet, knee/shin pads, extra gloves and is perfect if your into downhill/freeride type of riding. My wife got one last month also she liked mine so much.

    I won't give up on you!

    I used to be an XC geek myself. Now I have seen the light and crave doubles with nice trannies.

    Me and the wife have been racing DH for about 6 years now.
