Osprey, Hydrapak partner to create new hydraulics system reservoirs

Osprey’s done some interesting things with their reservoirs in the past, including a rigid back panel to keep it from flopping around and a carrying handle to make it easy to transport out of the pack.

IB13: Hydrapak Flows New Blaster Valves, SoftFlasks, and High Capacity Bishop Hydration Packs Get Official

Of all the new items in the Hydrapak booth, one of the smallest also happens to be one of the biggest – as in the highest flow of water from a bite valve. That’s what Hydrapak is claiming anyways with their new Blaster valve. The valve is a direct replacement for any 1/4″ line hydration […]

Billed as an “all day pack,” Hydrapak’s Laguna is a well-organized pack that has plenty of room for a well-equipped day on the trail.  The company’s excellent baffled Shape-Shift reservoir and trademark lightweight construction are in evidence- but can a 1 1/4lb pack hold 3L of water and 10L of gear comfortably, or manage smaller […]

Project 24.2 Review: Hydrapak’s lightweigt Selva hydration pack

See all of our Project 24.2 reviews here! Just right.  It’s always subjective assessment, but finding a hydration pack that’s just right for racing has been hard for me.  Sure, most racers wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a pack on race day, but when facing 24 hours’ worth of riding, being able to fix mechanicals, […]
