I was looking for a hydration pack and came across this one:-

This hydration rucksack has a capacity of 6L along with a compartment that will allow you to carry a 1.5L water bottle. The rucksack has been designed to fit snugly around your body so that you do not have to stop if you wish to have a drink. It is ideal for walking, biking and skiing.


It is lightweight and durable and has reflective trims for added safety in poor light.

Any idea how much, what colour?

Sounds sad, but my cross country bike is blue, and this is red :thumbsup:

Hot deal, cheapest on the bay is £17 if i remember correctly, no-name. Then a few gelert ones in different sizes, bottle sizes etc. for £20+. A few used camelback (sp?) and the like at £25+

Thanks in advance chill, rep for a reply.

Is it easy to clean ? easy to fill ? does it hold more than just liquid ? ie could it carry emergency food supplies whilst on a long bike trip ?

Excellent price - cheaper than many bladders on their own (but unfortunately its a 2 litre I need for my Begrhaus Freeflow).
#8
I bought one of these with the idea of being able to use the bladder for my DoE expedition. Needless to thing the bloody thing broke and i was left in the lurch having to constantly refill my 1l water bottle which i'd bought from a service station on the way. Don't buy these, places like decathlon sell good quality camelbaks really cheaply, got mine a couple months ago now for £18 with the small rucksack thing and it's great, will be taking this to the far east when i go next year, don't buy this it's a bad call if you actually need it for it's intended purpose.

This is not a very good product. The mouthpice on mine leaked which is a no no. The apetrure for filling is not very large so cleaning becomes a problem. If you cannot clean it thoroughly you could well make yourself very ill. I clean my Camelbak (you can get you (fist/hand inside) with Milton and dry it thoroughly before putting it away.

Also if you are going to use one in a hot climate (hill walking in Southern Spain this summer) you will find the liquid will heat up much quicker than the Camelbak (the nearly frozen water actually took too LONG to melt).

I can't emphasise enough that this bladder is nothing more than a gimmick. The camelbak is bombproof, coated with a special coating for germ free enviroment etc.

I try not to cut corners on things like this, and my £10 experiment proved I was right with my thoughts

As a previous poster has already stated, if you actually need one of these, buy the real thing

agree with lyrrad to an extent - if you are doing serious riding a camelback/similar quality is essential but costs.

I have had LIDL/ALDI ones in the past and for occasional use TBH they are fine. However after discovering the delights of a store called decathlon (not that my account likes it as much !!) there are much better quality and value ones there.

Wear it under your work clothes and fill it with booze lol

We got a couple of these from Tesco a few years ago when we were going to Egypt. They were such a good buy for the occasion: keeping us hydrated in temps of 40+ centigrade. We used ours all day every day. Excellent buy for the money if you're want to minimise your everyday luggage whilst on the tourist trail. For more remote places. We haven't had any problems with ours whatsoever. And I can fit my hand inside it to clean it thoroughly.

Cheers Merlie,

Just picked up one of these from Tesco Plus, Telford to take with me whilst cycling

If you can get you hand inside the bladder of the Tesco one I bought you would have to be a child or have extremely slender and small hands (unless I've got fat podgey hands and don't know it). All I can say is that the one I bought was much smaller of an aperture than the camelbak. And the camelbak kept liquid much cooler. Both were used at the same time

Even with the camelbak in temps of about 33 degrees, the first sips each time (water in the tubing, not the bladder) were warm by comparison to the cold water from the bladder. Camelbak actually make a sleeve for the tubing to overcome that problem for extreme heat or extreme cold

well i bought the one in the picture, red £9.99 from Tesco in Pengam Green (Cardiff). Have also seen them in stock around various other stores. easy enough to clean. the actual hydration pack comes out for filling. altogether a decent piece of kit. my m8 recently bought a camel back £55, ok it's a bit nicer looking than this but does exactly the same job.

Does anyone know if these are still in Aldi?

I noticed the Thursday and Sunday specials on line. Do the sunday ones take over the Thurs ones?

I plan on going in the next few hours, so if anyone who knows anything about Aldi's special timing etc. could chime in that would be greatly appreciated.


Really was hoping for a blue one, and aldi have blue!

Thanks in advance,

Matt

Ok, none in Aldi Camberley today :-(

Might spring on the Tesco one even though it doesnt match my bike, or get a Gilerti one from ebay in blue for Xmas.

By the way these are in Tesco again... £7.50.

I got the green one. Can't fit my hand inside but Camelback sell a device to hold the bag open to dry. I plan on making one. The tubing is easy to dry out, leave it in the drainer with each end of the tube stuck through the rung, drains out and dries.

Mouthpiece (bite valve) is a bit crap. Slit the slit open bigger, haven't tried it yet though. Can't get more than a mouthful with the valve on, but remove it and flow is good, but have to close the tap. Not as hands free. Might buy a better one on Ebay.

Does no one have problems with air in the tube? Before I slit the slit open bigger I had to suck very hard and didn't get much....

Oh well, cheap experiment!

Matt
