WLPS | 3L
Hydration Bladder |
The Source low-profile 3L water bladder is compatible with hydration pouches, vests and backpacks. The low profile design with baffle-wall reduces the profile and depth of the carrier, without reducing the impact or amount of water it can hold.
Drinking Tube Length
The WLPS tactical hydration bladder is designed for low profile hydration carriers like vest-compatible MOLLE pouches and packs.
The Widepac wide opening is ideal for filling, ice-insertion, emptying and drying the bladder. Unique technology and materials make this Source water bladder unique in its low maintenance properties: fill and just refill – water stays fresh for weeks in our bladders.
Use the Source tactical 3L hydration pack for your outdoor adventures, tactical missions or when you walk your dog. The WLPS design lets your bladder slip into any type of bag, taking up less space without impacting the amount of water it can hold. Hydration bladders have many uses, but the Source WLPS is especially useful with its low-profile design, low-maintenance features, while giving high-impact hydration support with each use.

Best hydration bladder, period
I have used these bladders for over 10 years. No I am not ex-military; I just like to use great equipment when I hike. The low profile design (without any extra plastic openings) fits perfectly in my knapsack and doesn’t create a big blob that you have to pack around. The covered hose helps to keep your water cool on hot days and the choice of bite or pull mouth pieces is great. However the best part from a convenience perspective is the fact that the hose can be removed from the bladder and the mouth piece from the hose and there are built in valves so your water does not pour out. This makes it easy to remove the bladder only to refill it (leaving the hose in your knapsack) or to hook up a Source refilling system to the hose. My wife has Source non-tactical bladders and their hoses are removable from the bladder as well but missing the other features. While they are better than non-Source choices, the extras that come with the Source Tactical bladder become things that you just expect and want when you are using them.
I’ve used this several times so far. Fittings seem to be quality, same with the bag and closing fixture. I’m happy with it. fits perfectly in a HSP Flatpack or the Krydex knock off.
Great water bladder.
This is a great water bladder to use. It’s easy to fill it up and close it. It’s fast to connect and disconnect the hose and change the drinking valve to a different one. The design and shape of the bladder makes it easy to store in your backpack. It’s low maintenance and easy to clean. The hose length is shorter then a camelbak and the twist to open the drinking valve does take some use to as well. This is money well spent.
Convenient, fast and highly maneuverable
Love this bladder
I have the shorter wider bladder and wanted something to fit in a smaller bag this was perfect for That and I'll probably be ordering a second!
