Rider is SOURCE’s premier low profile hydration pack, designed specifically for ballistic vest integration yet quickly converts for back carriage or ruck insertion. This military hydration pack is not only low-profile, but also low maintenance, durable, self-cleaning and reliable. Maximum utilization of the low-profile technology greatly reduces the depth of the carrier making it a truly low-profile system. Rider is a component of the SOURCE Virtus Soldier System and was selected by the UK MOD in 2015 as the Army hydration pack for the British Armed Forces. This low-profile hydration pack comes with a removable WLPS low profile hydration bladder. Choose the color that best suits your needs and enjoy hands-free drinking throughout your adventure or mission.
