Our 2020 SOURCE Hydration Packs received lots of praise from MTB riders, experts and bloggers this summer! Find below a selection of reviews, discussing our new Summit Hydration Backpack and Hipster Ultra Waistpack.


We teamed up with Pinkbike for the #pbreaderrides competition and the lucky winner received 5 Summit Hydration Backpacks or 5 Hipster Ultra Waistpacks for himself and his riding buddies! Pinkbike also introduced the new packs in their “Across the Pond Beaver” section.

Vital MTB

“On the trail, the Summit had us impressed from the first ride. The fit is super comfortable and very stable in action, and the multitude of storage options made it easy to organize our gear in the best way. We particularly appreciate all the little touches that show that Source put a lot into this one, like the clip-in tool pouch that can be pulled out in a flash when urgent trail-side repairs are needed – perfect both for racing and regular riding.”

“The Hipster Ultra takes Source’s bumbag to the next level. This feature-rich hip pack is among the more stable options in action, thanks to the wide shape and the generous straps.”

Enduro Magazine

“The Hipster Ultra 5L is a very good alternative for everyone who appreciates the comfort and stability of the previous Hipster 1.5L, but needs a little more storage room. Because that’s exactly what you’ll get, together with a better climate and overall higher quality.”

The Enduro Magazine awarded the Hipster Ultra and the Summit with the Design & Innovation Award in 2020, paying tribute to the high quality, smart design and innovative functions of the hydration packs.

“What stands out are the various compression straps of the Source Summit 15L which allow for continuous adjustment of the pack for the perfect fit to the body of the rider”

“The Hipster Ultra 5L is inspired by the Hipster Hip Belt, but comes with an impressive storage volume of 5L! Adjustable compression straps provide perfect fit regardless of the filling level of the Waist Pack.”

Morzine SOURCE Magazine

“We prefer a waist pack to a backpack when we’re riding as it frees up the back and shoulders and this one comes with certification for responsible and sustainable manufacturing, which makes us like it even more.”

People Abroad

“The Summit 15L has been my constant companion on MTB tours since spring. I even used it on day trips with my trekking bike. The high quality of the materials and the workmanship have convinced me.”

“Another advantage of the MTB backpack are the many pockets and compartments. I usually have a lot of small stuff with me when I’m on the road – with the Summit it’s easy to separate them and access them quickly.”
