Hydration Pack Information

Dehydration is a dangerous condition. When you are out and about being physically active make sure that the daypack you take with you contains a sufficient amount of water to account for the heat of the day as well as the physical exertion.

Bottles of water can be cumbersome and difficult in your travel pack. Sometimes they leak, get buried under other items or left behind at rest stops. If this is an issue that you’re encountering maybe it is time to consider using an hydration pack instead of your regular hiking backpack. Hydration packs are generally small to medium sized backpacks, daypacks or waistpacks with the difference being that they have inbuilt hydration capability containing a reservoir or “bladder” commonly made of rubber or flexible plastic. There is a  bite valve at the end of the plastic to release the water and it can be conveniently slung over the shoulder so the wearer can access water without needing to take off the pack.

Anyone can use a hydration pack. There are styles, sizes and weights to suit all different types of activities.

You may consider using one of these special travel packs if you:

-          Hike/Bushwalk

-          Birdwatch

-          Run

-          Cycle

-          Hunt

-          Rock climb

-          Ski/Snowboard

Hydration packs need not be limited to extreme sports though; they’re just as useful in preventing dehydration in other forms of activity such as shopping about at a local market or sightseeing! To see our extensive range of  hydration packs click here.
