Hydration Pack advice

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Currently looking for a hydration pack to fit with my chest rig.

 

Currently rocking the warrior assault systems 901 Elite chest rig, [Picture 1]

https://www.uktactical.com/p-10656-warrior-901-g36-a-tacs-fg.aspx

 

I want a hydration pack that could possibly adapt to this... Can't go for the Molle system as this doesn't have a rear panel, Just a bare back shoulder strap.

 

I can purchase the Molle back panel, [Picture 2]

https://www.uktactical.com/p-8457-warrior-back-panel-a-tacs-fg.aspx

unclip the bare back shoulder straps, and clip new one on, but at £75, it's a bit OTT just for a Molle back panel.

 

So it's either something that can clip onto the current straps I have, or a back pack type camel back.

 

Was after a Forrest green/ multi-cam look.

 

Any recommendations much appreciated in advance,

 

Thanks for reading 😀

Chris, have a look at the condor hydro harness, I run one with my warrior dar rig, nice & lo-profile, just had to rethread the warrior buckles off the back straps, 10 min job.

Od/black etc are around £33, the mc ones are £45-£50.

Does it come with the bladder?

I need to find a good bladder, been looking at the ones on taiwan gun... but am sure at the price the quality can’t be great

Got my 1L off TaiwanGun for less than a fiver and was told by forum members that it would taste of plastic... and it does, a bit. But only if you put water in it, I find the gin hides the plastic-ness flavour quite well. :D

Get a bladder that opens from the top.  The ones with a screw on cap are harder to keep clean and to dry once you wash it.

 

If you do, when getting the backpack, it means you won't need one with a cutout for the screw on cap either.

 

I just got a DPM one, so link won't be of use to you.

 

This might be good, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Marauder-MTP-PLCE-Hydration-Pouch-Pack-Army-Multicam-3-Litre-Water-Capacity/262434824438?hash=item3d1a55a0f6:g:Aj0AAOSw9NdXtv2t

I always run weak Hi-Juice squash in mine for the same reason, hate the plastic taste 😋

Try a Source hydration bladder

https://sourceoutdoor.com/en/10-hydration-systems

 

They've got coating on the inside so don't taste disgusting and are easy to clean etc

I heard you just rinse/wash with vinegar/baking soda combo every now and then and it'll stop you getting the sale water/plastic taste.

 

Haven't actually got one yet but read it on some airsoft forum a while back. Not sure if it's true but FWIW you can't go wrong giving it a go right?

Chris.

 

Nope...I have a Condor Hydro rig.  Bladders are very quite cheap though from ebay/amazon. :)

 

Edit** I do wash mine out with Bi-carbonate of soda & a few drops of lemon juice..stuff some kitchen towel inside then hang it to let it dry....no bad tasting or slimy water.  ;)
