This Source Widepac hydration system opens at the top, making it easy to fill and clean, and closes securely with an excellent, easy-to-use slider. Nice detachable hose, too. This Source Widepac delivers big gulps of taste-free water and the cap on the mouthpiece keeps it clean. Needs a shut-off valve for full marks.
