Ok, this might sound weired to some of you guys but I never used a Camelbak... :cool:

So... Which one of the two would be the most appropriate for a G2 Express (since they're the two I can easily get)?

Hotshot 3.1L (http://www.camelbak.com/government-military/hydration-packs/hotshot-3l.aspx)
Storm 3L (http://www.camelbak.com/government-military/hydration-packs/storm.aspx)

Thanks for your feedback!

Best!

AD, I have the same pack and use a Camelback Storm. Fits easily. I think the hotshot is a little shorter but wider. The Storm is great for warm weather (or really cold) since it is insulated. I use a plain bladder in cool weather to save weight and bulk.

I have a G1 Express and fit a Hotshot in there.

An alternative to Camelbak:
Someone here recommended the Source hydration bladders. I use the 3L model in an Express and it works great. You have to search around to find them (made in Israel).

3 to 3.1 Ltr fits great.
A 6 Ltr one will fit but might take up too much space.
