Whether it’s for a tactical operation or a day of hiking, staying hydrated is of the utmost importance to your survival. That’s where hydration systems come in. These systems are rugged water carriers often used by law enforcement, the military, first responders and outdoor enthusiasts for their portability and ease of use. They’re especially beneficial for long outings where water is hard to come by.
Hydration systems mainly come as a pack with a water reservoir inside. This reservoir comes in many sizes and lengths for various volumes of water and has a drinking hose with a bite valve at the end to keep water sealed off until you apply pressure with your lips or teeth. Many hydration packs come with straps that allow you to wear them as a backpack or with MOLLE webbing for attachment to a plate carrier. Some versions come as a tactical backpack with a compatible hydration pocket/sleeve inside and portholes for running the drinking hose through.
Here at Galls, we are proud to carry a large selection of hydration systems from some of the industry’s most trusted brands. These brands include CamelBak, Source Tactical Gear, Vertx, Condor and much more.
