Hydration Packs

A hydration pack is a pack that comes pre-assembled, so to speak, with a hydration system built into it. Truth be told, I'm not especially wild about some of these packs as these packs themselves don't entirely fit my ideal of what a true "day pack" should be. Many of these hydration packs lack the crucial internal frame/framesheet and pack adjustments that I prefer to see in a day pack that will be used for extensive backcountry travel. Instead, I personally prefer to get a seperate hydration system and integrate it into a technical daypack.

That said, I know full well that many people would prefer to look at getting a pack that is "all in one", if only for ease of use and convenience. Additionally, many of the smaller hydration packs are ideal for "around town" things and walks in the local park (where a true day pack isn't needed). For uses such as these, hydration packs are ideal. All the hydration packs shown below are available through Backcountry.Com.
