The iVis Blaze has great visibility day or night. Even filled to capacity (3l) it is comfortable to wear. The storage pouch has more than enough capacity for small tools, a headlamp, snacks or whatever. The shoulder strap encasement keeps the hydration tube and mouthpiece clean and out of the way. I find just two shortcomings. The first concerns the bite valve. It has to be twisted open to unlock which necessitates using two hands to get a drink. Source offers a “tooth-pull” valve for their military hydration packs that I highly recommend because it allows getting a drink using only one hand. The other shortcoming concerns is that the pack doesn’t have strap keepers for the chest strap, which leaves it dangling out.
Reply by SOURCE Thanks Gerry for the in-depth feedback! All points duly noted. Enjoy the outdoors with SOURCE!
I already own SOURCE tactical products, so I had a high expectation of this to withstand my work place. The Ivis Blaze has performed above and beyond in the extreme heat of the Sky Harbor Airport tarmac. Ice stays cold with a ramp temp of 140F for hours. The ice in the bag doesn't melt for an exceptional length of time! The amount of water in the bladder means its able to keep up with my intake over an 8 hour shift with no need to refill and the backpack has shown no signs of wear. A little dirt maybe, but rock solid stitching has held together through the abuse of being in and out of loading aircraft.
My only complaint is not having an option between the bite and storm valves as I much prefer the latter. This product is worth every penny, and frankly the customer service makes it even more so.
Reply by SOURCE Dear Nicholas, thank you for the praise for our iVis hydration pack. Like all our products it is made for maximum performance and durability. Regarding preference of drinking valve: we offer our Storm valve separately and you can easily exchange the valves. If you have any questions in that regard, don't hesitate to contact us.
