Hydration Packs Versus Bottles

The debate of Bottles versus Hydration pack has been going on ever since the first hydration pack was brought out. Both of which have their ups and downs. Here’s my take on the topic.

Camelbak Ratchet — Tested and Reviewed

Camelbak Ratchet comes with a 3-liter Crux hydration reservoir and 3 liters of storage for the essentials. Other features include breathable air mesh back panel and external helmet hooks. It also comes with a removable stability belt, a feature we would have liked to see on Camelbak Classic. Weighing just around 300 grams, it’s also the lightest hydration pack with 3-liter reservoir from Camelbak.

Do It Yourself — Magnetic Tube Clip

Many higher end hydration packs include a magnetic tube clip for the hydration tube/hose. It makes clipping the tube in and out quicker and more effortless. Unfortunately, neither my Camelbak Classic or Camelbak Ratchet hydration packs came with a magnetic tube clip by default, so I decided to make my own. I wanted to make it universal in case I end up getting yet another pack. Blueprints available!
