    An excellent SOURCE for hydration.
    I’ve had this product for a few months now and it honestly amazes me every time I use it. As a former Marine, our hydration systems were issued to us from camel back, one of Source’s main competitors, and this things were awful. I can’t tell you just how many times they would leak or need to have the bladder replaced. Source seems to have learned from these mistakes. I’ve taken it on countless hikes, runs, kayaking trips and I have no complaints. There isn’t a single tear in the fabric, or a single malfunction in the hydration system itself. I’d recommend this item to anyone who’s looking for a top tier hydration system.

    Tactical 3L Hydration Pack
    Very well designed and everything works great with lots of clever features. I have several Source bladders, both 2L and 3L. The only thing I would like included with this pack is the ability to change an empty bladder for a full one. Because you have to unscrew the lid it is impossible to put a full replacement bladder in this pack. If you are vehicle mounted and drinking from this pack it is likely that you would have several full spare bladders to exchange for the empty bladders. Great product, bullet proof!

    Hi and thanks for your feedback, our developers will take it into consideration! For the time being, for rapid refills on the move we suggest you take a look at our UTA Rapid Refill Adapter. No need to remove the bladder, as you can easily refill through the drinking tube.

    Pratico e leggero
    Ho ricevuto questo articolo come regalo da parte di Source (GRAZIE!) e lo utilizzo spesso durante le escursioni, specialmente in quelle estive dove l'acqua non deve mai mancare.
    Lo trovo molto pratico e perfettamente configurabile in altezza; utilissimo anche il gancio in basso, io lo utilizzo per agganciare un marsupio fotografico.

    A very well engineered hydration pack
    I have used this pack for over a year now and it is the best pack in our group. Easy to clean, easy to take apart and reassemble. It is pretty good at keeping your liquid cool or warm. Very durable also.

    This is the Best Hydration Pack & Bladder You will ever purchase!
    I purchased the Tactical 3L Hydration pack in 2014 after recommendations from soldier friends returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. The pack is first class and fits on many backpacks as well as plate carriers. The bladder, tubing, bite valve are all top notch. I have had zero issues with mold, slime, etc. growing in or on the bladder or tubing. I have used the pack for 3+ years on all different types of outdoor activities and couldn't be happier. The UTA adapter is well worth the money and gives me all types of options for refilling the bladder. I have gotten rid of all of my CamelBak, Platypus and Osprey water bladder packs. Source is all I will ever buy...

    I gotta say this is by far the best hydration system I have ever come across. I bought it in 2007 and beat the shit out of it all over Canada, and other allies training areas. recently got back from the canadian mission in kandahar and i gotta say it went through some tough stuff and is STILL in perfect shape. It really is a cut above the rest

    I agree with what everyone said plus the back of the carrier has a pocket for your water filter.The zippered side of the carrier lets you hook up your water filter to go directly into the bladder.Best set up!

    This is one of the greatest hydration systems that I have come across. The ease of taking down to clean and dry are phenomenal. The fact that the pack has to zippers for ease of access is unprecedented. The attachment points are a great idea. A lot of time and energy went into creating this system. The best part is that it is made in the USA. I cannot write everything that I love about this system. Thank you Source.

    We wore these at Marine Corps OCS in Quantico VA and beat the shit out of them. Took them on simulated combat patrols, PT, rolled around in the mud with them, wore them every single day for six weeks, did six through twelve mile hikes with them attached to our packs, ran with them on, you name it we did it. Worked great the entire time, only thing you could ask for is some velcro to attach nametapes and maybe a few PALS attachment points. Still even without these this is a great Hydration system and I would recommend it for anyone.

    This is the best hydration pack I have ever owned. Cleaning is really simple and the fact that the whole bladder can be opened allowing easy access for cleaning and drying is brilliant
