COSTCO High Sierra Hydration Pack $22

Hey Gang, A heads up for those interested in a new hydration pack.   I just picked up a High Sierra Hydration Pack at Hawaii Kai Costco which appears to be fairly sound.  It is a 2 liter pack, with two extra gear pockets and a web outer pocket. Some additonal tuck and store space.  antimicrobial treatment of bladder and line,  holes for ipod or whatever.  Clips, pockets, pouches galore.  The water bladder is a bit clumsy to remove but not hard.  The system is insulated and has an insulated water line.  This may be a winter sport intended item.  It has a Z valve system for a mouthpiece that I have not tried yet. It has a waiste belt that can be tucked away.  It is a bit snug on me.  I rate it for medium duty but may grow to like it.   I have a camel pack system that cost me $90 and I do not see a lot of differences.  But the camel is years old and still going after very heavy usage.   

But at these prices I might buy another.   

Aloha,  mm
