Stash 750 ml

rated 2.5 of 5 stars The Hydrapak Stash Collapsible bottle is great for conserving pack space and going UL. However, most of the time it can be hard to drink out of and is difficult to use. While this bottle takes up minimal pack space and is very light, it definitely is not user friendly. I have only had this bottle for about a month, but it is easy to tell how it performs.   The bottom is made of stiff plastic, which provides good stability but makes it a challenge to open. You have to press on the sides once they… Full review

Shape-Shift 2L

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A unique folding opening makes filling easy and is leak proof. Shape-Shifts baffle gives the reservoir a slim shape. Plug-n-Play hose disconnects without removing from your pack.

Shape-Shift 2L

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect system and easy to clean. No special equipment. I got this for my daypack that has a spot for a hydration reservoir. This hydration delivers on all levels. Good water flow, easy fill, easy clean. I used this during an OCR event and sometimes filling your pack can be a pain to fill when running. This was no issue. Top slides open and fills quick. Even running with this didn't slosh around. I'm very happy with the configuration. Full review

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This pack is lightweight, comfortable, and spacious enough to hold a full day of gear. My son took over my old hydration pack, so although I needed a replacement, I had not started looking yet. I won this pack through Trailspace, and took it on a 10-mile hike the day after I received it.  Winter is fast approaching in northern MI, so it was loaded with an extra jacket as well as the usual 10 essentials.  So far I can't find anything I don't like about it. The shoulder straps are comfortable, even… Full review
