Hydration bladder water storage

Post by hotlead » Tue Jan 27, 2015 10:15 pm

I'm guessing that most here don't leave the bladders in their BOBs and GHBs full of water, and I don't either. What I do is put a few store bought water bottles in the hydration pack in with the empty and dry bladder, that way I'll have water on hand to put in the bladder when there's time. Kinda like how some of us do with a wool blanket in our packs in place of a compressed sleeping bag.

Anyway, just kind of a random thought.

I use the life raft emergency water packs and put them inside the bladder. Bladder and water stay good and in case the packets leak, no water spilled.
