CamelBak pack care

There were several threads about keeping the bladder of a CamelBak fresh and clean. I want to know how to keep the bag (pack) nice and fresh. After a few hundred miles of riding, my pack is getting a little grungy.

What do you guys do?


I pull out the bladder and empty any other contents and run the pack thru the washer. Typically, I wash my armor at the same time.

(To keep the armor velco from fraying everything in the wash, I cover any exposed hook-side-velcro with some spare strips of loop velcro I have).
