All Source Hydration Systems are low maintenance & easy-care thanks to our unique GlassLike™ and GrungeGuard™ technology. Water stored in a Source Widepac tastes like water and stays fresh for days and even weeks – with no plastic taste thanks to our TasteFree™ Technology!
I will say it took a couple uses to figure out the dual bladder system, but after a few uses I am now in love with this pack! ive increased the miles per week due to being properly hydrated. Nothing like a sip if electrolyte mix followed by regular water :) I will be buying more of these for my own preparation packs too. Thanks!!
I like the backpack, it has an abundance of smart pockets and it gives some protection against back blows if falling on the back. But I wish the waist straps would be detachable or at least so that they could be tucked away for the moments when not riding the bike. Also I have a military variant of the hydration blatter and was happy to find out the tubes and quick disconnects were compatible, allthough the tube that is in this hydration tube you can't change the valve without changing the tube. Also found out that I could have found this backpack in the EU and avoided customs and tax added to the price. Overall I am satisfied with this backpack.
