A very low-profile hydration system using a slide on locking mechanism. Made from lightweight and soft material this is ideal for ultralight backpackers who prefer bladders to bottles.
Here's a runner's gear essential. Designed to be more comfortable in vests and packs, the Velocity 1.5L features a new ergonomic slideseal top. It's our lightest reservoir yet, and the wide opening makes for rapid refills at aid stations. Never run on empty.
Hydrapak's Velocity uses the sliding lock mechanism that a few other brands have used in the past to close the bladder after filling. It's a bit fiddly, but most methods of closing up hydration bladders are to be honest. What stands out with the Hydrapak version is the quality of the product and the materials used.
