Hydration Systems Buying Guide

These water and beverage holding bags have been popular since the 1990s.  Because of the ease with which the wearer can drink water without bulky bottles or unscrewing caps along with the fact that the weight is evenly distributed, the wearer doesn't get lopsided from empties or multiple full bottles. Hydration systems can be used for a lot of activities, but are very popular for hiking ,cycling ,snow shoeing ,sailing ,skiing  and rock climbing , because these don't require the wearer to use their hands to drink.
