Camelbak Octane XCT is here! All of our Octane series packs are made from ultra-light materials so they’re good for adventure racing, trail running or XC bike riding – anything where you need to move fast and minimize weight. The Octane XCT takes this approach to extremes by stripping the pack down to the basics. Inside you’ll find our 3 liter Antidote Reservoir, which drops in behind the back panel. Outside we’ve added a single vertical zip storage pocket on the front and two stash pockets on the waist belt and harness so you can keep essentials close at hand. For safety we’ve added reflectivity front and back and a whistle on the harness.
Quick Link System, 1/4 turn - easy open/close cap
Center baffling and low-profile design
Patented Big Bite Valve
Easy-to-clean wide-mouth opening
Front and back reflectivity
Overflow storage bungee
CamelBak Got Your Bak Guarantee: If we build it, we'll Bak it with our lifetime guarantee.
We recommend wiping your pack with a damp cloth to remove dirt. If the pack is extremely dirty and needs a deeper cleaning, soak it in cool or warm water with a very mild soap. Rinse the pack thoroughly with cool water. If soap residue remains in the fabric, it may create suds if exposed to water or sweat. DO NOT wash your pack in a washing machine. Machine washing may damage the pack or affect the integrity of the fabric and fasteners, and will void the Got Your Bak Guarantee.
The best way to care for your reservoir is to clean and dry it after every use, especially if you fill the reservoir with anything other than water. However, if a reservoir has not been cleaned after every use, and mold or discoloration develops:
1. Use hot water and a CamelBak Cleaning Tablet. (Or use 2 tablespoons of baking soda or bleach instead of CamelBak Cleaning Tab.) Mix the solution inside your reservoir and elevate the reservoir above the tube and Big Bite Valve. Pinch the bite valve, allowing the solution to flow into the drink tube and fill the bite valve. 2. Let the reservoir and cleaning solution sit in the reservoir and drink tube for about 30 minutes. 3. Wash the reservoir with hot water and mild soap. Be sure to completely rinse away the cleaning solution in the reservoir and drink tube before using again. You can also use CamelBak brushes from our Cleaning Kit to scrub your reservoir and drink tube. Brushes are the best way to ensure you are scrubbing all of the areas of the reservoir clean. 4. Once the reservoir is clean, be sure to air dry overnight so no moisture is trapped inside, which can cause mold to grow.
These steps will make your reservoir safe for use. If there are still spots left behind, these are permanent mold stains that may not be removable. However, your reservoir is still safe and usable after you’ve cleaned it.
