    Hydration Pack, what is it?

    A hydration pack is a sort of hydration system built as a backpack including a bladder. The reservoir is connected to a hose that allows the wearer to drink hands-free. Most hoses have a bite valve that opens when the user bites down on it.

    Depending on the use of the hydration pack, some packs are extremely small and light, designed to add as little weight as possible, while others are bigger, provided with much larger bladders.

    Tactical Hydration Pack Backpacks with 2.5L Bladder

    Great for an OCR, I did a Spartan beast with this one, 16 miles.

    It provides enough water (2.5 L) and enough space to store gels, snacks, headlamp and glow sticks.

    Did barbed wires without being stuck in the wires.

    Nathan Vapor Air Race Vest

    This running backpack is excellent. It weight only 9 ounces (without water).

    Super comfortable, just adjust the straps ( I recommend keep them snug against your body), and you won't even feel like you are carrying anything at all.

    Ultimate Direction SJ Ultra Vest 3.0

    This vest comes to us with the Silnylon Hex Mesh material, super lightweight, strong, and totally non-absorbent.

    A complaint is that there aren't shoulder adjustment straps. But the backpack stays fit with no chafing.
