Moreover, this hydration pack is BPA and phthalate-free, so you are secured that what you’re drinking is plain water that is best for you.

Durable

Biking, hiking and backpacking are activities that most commonly involved the use of hydration system. These activities are also usually done consistently, which means that a durable pouch is also needed. And I’m sure you don’t want to waste extra money spending for your activities. Good thing that Platypus Big Zip SL Hands-Free Hydration System is one durable hydration pack.  It is made with a tri-layer laminate film to prevent puncture and abrasion.

Leak-proof

No one wants to run out of water in the middle of your trip. And because hydration packs are usually placed in the backpack, you do not want as well to wet all over the things inside. While a waterproof back panel of your bag is a great help, it is far better if your hydration pack itself is leak-proof. That is where Platypus Big Zip SL Hands-Free Hydration System is exceptionally good at.
