Pushing boundaries to redefine the future of hydration, HydraPak creates innovative solutions that stand up to the harshest environments. Easy-to-use and highly functional, these HydraPak products showcase the technical manufacturing expertise that has distinguished the company for nearly two decades. The Velocity 1.5L reservoir, 500ml and 250ml soft flasks cover the spectrum of carrying needs and offer up convenient and easy ways to hydrate.
