Hidden up high in the back corner of their booth, Hydrapak had what looked to be a new premium hydration pack in two attention grabbing colors. The only information we were able to glean from the source is that it is likely to be called the Bishop, and will sit at the top of Hydrapak’s line. We’ve reviewed a few of their bags now, and each time they have gotten better and better. Details are scarce, but it looks like the Bishop could take Hydrapak to the next level.
Granted this is a prototype, but it had a nice looking molded back panel with what appeared to be ventilation ports. The waist belt was nicely padded as well with large zippered pockets for easy access to food without taking off the pack. We weren’t able to see the inside of the pack, but from the outside the Bishop looks great. More info when we have it.
