Hydration bledders for 5.11 packs.

Post by SamB » Sun Mar 06, 2011 6:14 pm

Hey guys. I own a rush 12 and a rush 24 and was looking into procuring hydration bladders for them. I was wondering if anyone out there in ZS land has hydration bladders for these packs, and if you do what brand and size do you use for them?

I've got a Nalgene 2 liter in my 5.11 Rush 24. New set up for me and I've only used it once or twice. Works well. Plenty of room in there for a higher capacity bladder. Easy to plug in-line filters into as well.

You can get a Camelbak bladder at any outdoor shop for about 30 bucks. For a bit more you can get a Camelbak Unbottle, which is an insulated bladder. I have been using one for about 8 years now.

I have a Rush24, I have a 3L Camelbak in it. I seriously recommend not using one that size. I would also recommend looking into Osprey's Hydroform bladders, as they are designed with their own stay sheet to minimize barreling on the side that rests against your back. Allegedly these bladders are made in conjunction with Nalgene, so there is some trade expertise in the design and materials.
