4.0 out of 5 stars Thirst Quencher available in most colours, 14 Sept. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Woodside 2 Litre Hydration Pack Water Rucksack/Backpack/Cycling Bladder Bag (Apparel)
This Hydration Pack - one of two purchased here - was tested well before the other one arrived.
The inner, separate, two litre 'bladder' is attached to the outer rucksack by means of two plastic swivel clip hooks which are sewn into the lining of the outer rucksack and latch into moulded oval loops in the bladder's border. This secures the bladder securely. And I doubt if there'll be any problems with chafe.
The tough but flexible blue plastic bladder is filled by means of removing, unscrewing a robust, plastic threaded cap, And although I found it slightly awkward to wash out, then fill, it's a knack which is easily mastered.

The 'drinking tube' which exits the base of the bladder can be threaded out through the outer holder's zip, then up and over your shoulder, under one of the shoulder straps, so that it sits neatly within reach of your mouth. A yellow soft plastic/or Nylon on off lever controls the flow of liquid when drinking. The Woodside's mouthpiece (the bit which fits between your lips) is a cleverly designed soft moulding - it has a horizontal split which opens and closes as you suck. A 'non return' on the tube prevents drips.
Ok now the comfort ...

It does, at first, feel rather odd to have a two litre pouch full of liquid on your back, but soon you'll become accustomed to it.

I have seen many [more expensive] versions on the market, but this product ticks all the boxes so far for me, I can see this being used not only for cycling but for all manner of outdoor pursuits ... land or sea .... and the adjustable shoulder straps,of the rucksack, though slightly high are comfortable, worn either over a shirt or coat.
Great idea, good price, pretty well made product. recommend flushing the inner bladder after use, ready for next time.
It's light enough (empty) to pack in a suitcase too if going abroad.
Keep hydrated!

I use this for running and walking around and it does the job fine. The bag is free of leaks, so you don't need to worry when constantly moving. My everyday walking target is easier to achieve and the bag is a great combo with my other walking gear. Here is the pedometer I also use: CSX Walking 3D Pedometer with Clip and Strap & Free eBook
