Behold! The Platypus Quick-Disconnect Kit lets you refill your hydration reservoir without ever playing "thread-the-drinking-tube-through-the-pack" again. With this joint spliced into your Platypus (or other 1 / 4-inch) tube, you can unclip it, pull out your reservoir, and fill it up without dripping all over the place. Then you can put it back without having to jam the tube through all your gear, out the tiny port, and down your pack strap, soaking all your dry clothing in the process.
