Source WidePac 2L (2014)

Winner of Trail’s recent hydration system test (September 2013), the Source WidePac 2L represents superb value and performance for the price. Its USP is that opening, which allows easy cleaning and filling without spilling, and Source’s well-proven track record for untainted taste (though modern hydration systems have generally licked this). You also get a dirt cap for the twist-lock mouthpiece, which anyone who has ever picked up up their rucksack from a dusty rest stop to find their mouthpiece caked in muck will appreciate.

Capacity 2 litres
Weight (empty) 162g

The Source WidePac 2L is best for pipe users.
