SOURCE Product Reviews
Fast forward, I am glad that we are now in the internet age and I can buy this great product online not only for myself but for the whole family. We are now proud owners of 6 pairs of Source Sandals.
Sandals meet all my expectations. They are very comfortable and very durable. They will dry quickly. They smell good. They have very good traction on wet surfaces. They did a great job in the mountain river where it is very slippery. I would recommend.
This is the second pair of sandals of the same model. I do not want other shoes from May to October;)
The shoulder straps are lightly padded and not meant to carry a heavy load. The Elastic strap retainers are nice to have but some times come undone after a long day's use. The red version has a waist strap that does not detach.
The 3L hydration bladder is definitely the next Gen in water hydration bladders. I have had MSR and Camelbac bladders that always give you a plastic taste. This bladder lacks the plastic taste and has a nice wide opening for cleaning and filling.
I prefer the Helix mouthpiece that comes with the bladder over the Storm mouthpiece. What makes it nice is the ability open and close the valve with your teeth. With the storm mouth piced you have to turn off the valve manually.
Another feature I like is that their is a quick connect and disconnect for the hose, allowing you to refill the bladder without having to pull the hose out of the backpack.
All in all a nice pack!
My only caveat is the bungee cords that are attached to the outside of the pack. I'd like to take them off, but not permanently so that I could put them back on if I thought I'd need them on a given ride. I haven't figured out a way to do this.
Just a heads up – if you like your flip-flops to have a casual fit on your feet go half a size up!
