8 posts in this topic

hi there, as it is summer now i have got thinking "im gonna need water" and being under 18 i cant get a water bottle to my mouth... and im not to keen on straws and all that... so whats a good camelback at a good price, that can be mounted onto a MOLLE vest?

 

Thanks,

Mitchell

What vest/webbing are you running with atm? As some vests have inbuilt hydration sleeves on the back of them :)

Aye ive got an exact same one (but in OD) and i theyre great! :D

 

Guessing you mean the actual water container not the MOLLE container now? Well if youve got a Go Outdoors or Outdoor World near you you could pick up a decent one from there? Or have a look on their website? Since they do quite good outdoor kit :)

Aye, looks alright, though remember to clean it, especially the drinking tube! I had one, didnt really clean it and the tube turned black after a while...

 

Also, the 5.11 is made of a heavy duty mesh, so the bright blueness of the platapus might show through, so if youve got any scrim netting or even a kharki/black t-shirt just wrap it up in that :) Unless your not that fussed about camoflague or concealment :lol:

Aye thatd be fine, wouldnt even need to make anything out of it, just wrap it round it, and yeah it will do, the sleeve is a good 30/40cm deep (when your wearing it basically from your shoulder blades to lower back :)
