I used the pack about 10 times last winter.

This year, at the top of the Alps in France I got a nasty surprise.

The hydration pack leaked all of its contents into my clothes.


It cost me 2700 EUROS (about $4000 USD) to be evacuated.

I will never trust EMS products again.

Thanks EMS for making the Hydration pack that ruined the vacation of a lifetime.

High-wicking mesh on the back panel and shoulder straps transports moisture away from your body. Large exterior stash pocket holds a bike helmet or windbreaker. Also features webbing for holding extra gear, compression straps, and reflective straps. Includes 100 fl. oz. Nalgene hydration bladder, quick-connect hose, and Bite Me valve.
