Hydration Pack for Motorcycle Riders
This is a first for me, owning a Hydration pack or Camelbak as they also known by.
I always carried my water in my backpack or on my small day pack around my waist. I always ran out of water before the end of the hike or knocked it over and spilling it at a rest stops. Has this ever happen to you? Dam out of water…now what? Can be a disheartening feeling, especially in the backwoods or in the proverbial middle of nowhere on a hot day.
I enjoy the fact that I can now carry 2 L of water with me, and more in a separate bladder or my regular stainless container in my pack.
The Hydration pack we bought has the following specs:
Outdoor Products Kilometer Hydration Pack:
- Exposed reservoir cap allows for easy filling
- Main compartment with zipper closure
- Lightweight breathable mesh shoulder straps
- Adjustable sternum strap
- 2L hydration reservoir included
- Exterior accessory pocket
It does well at its job, slim design, fits over my bike jacket with room for adjustments on the straps, even with all my liners inside the jacket.
Easy to fill with its large opening, and even better it is easy to get water out of the mouth piece. You don’t feel like your siphoning it and get a taste and it is all gone. Overall a good buy for the money spent, not the cheapest one on the market and not a high end one either but does the job well. It keeps the water in place until you need it, no leaks so far!
The replacement bladders for this model run about $15.[phpzon keywords=”hydration pack, camalbak” num=”2″ country=”US” trackingid=”stinsoadvent-20″ templatename=”default” paging=”true”]
The Hydration Packs were a great addition to our kit, not only for motorcycling but for all our outdoor adventures. I just used it while snowshoeing and with the cold temperature outside and it under my winter coat. Kept it from freezing up but not warm enough to make it feel like your drink hot water.[phpbay keywords=”hydration pack, camelbak” num=”2″ siteid=”1″ sortorder=”BestMatch” templatename=”default” paging=”true”]
The straps and padding are adequate for the weight of the pack and the bladder is a breeze to change, it is held in with a small velcro strap at the top, just slide out and disconnect the feed tube from the base. Then you are ready for clean up and refilling for your next adventure!
As I mentioned this is a great addition to our kit, and I would recommend one for anyone doing outdoor activities.
