FirstSpear Friday Focus – Hydrapak Hydration Bladders


For this week’s Friday Focus, we’re taking a look at FirstSpear’s offering of Hydrapak’s 1L and 3L hydration bladders. Hydrapak ‘drink on the move’ hydration systems are made of thermoplastic polyurethane, offering durability and flexibility to the system. The patented slider opening allows for quick filling with a secure seal. The Hydrapak hydration bladders are also reversible for easy cleaning and drying.


Hydrapak bladders were selected by FirstSpear to serve as a high-quality hydration system to use with FirstSpear’s current line of hydration pouches and other load carriage products.

    Is there a reason they didn’t go with a 2L option? 1L never seems enough. 3L sometimes takes up too much ruck space.

    Kudos for the low profile design.

      2L will be available soon

        I wasn’t going to mention it, but 2L seems to be my standard at least. Rich was right on.

        I’m liking the slider and cleaning aspect, after some bad experiences with other brands this may bring me back to the concept. Good thinking.

    I have successfully used Hydrapak bladders on two trips to the Stan. I had 2L verisons but I’m looking forward to a low profile version. IMO, these are the best designed bladders on the market.

      Hear, hear. I use them as a backpacker and they are the best open-top hydration sleeve I’ve found so far!
