Karrimor SF Sabre Tactical Hydration System - Olive Green

The Karrimor SF Sabre Tactical Hydration Pack offers 3 litres of water storage in a tough and functional package. Its versatile design means it can be used on its own as a rucksack or, thanks to the stowable shoulder straps and PLCE attachment points, it can be clipped onto the side of larger compatible rucksacks, such as the Sabre Delta 25, Sabre 45 and Sabre 75.

The Karrimor Hydration Pack features an integrated Source 3L dromedary bag, which is easily filled by way of the large screw cap on the front of the pack. The connected hydration tube is long enough to be attached to either the right or left shoulder strap, thanks to neat Velcro loops on each. Excess tubing can simply be inserted back into the pack. The mouthpiece consists of a tough combat valve, complete with attached 'dirt shield' cap for extra protection. The valve can be locked in the 'off' position simply by rotating it.

The Hydration Pack is made from a 1000 Denier Nylon fabric coated with a Silicon/PU elastomer for improved tear strength and flex resistance. The fabric is finished with a silicone durable water repellent (DWR) that gives improved water resistance. It is designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards as Karrimor's UK Ministry of Defence version.

The Karrimor SF range of rucksacks and accessories is constructed from the highest quality materials and to extremely high standards; you can always rely on the Sabre range for quality.

  Great. Plenty of water. Rugged. Easy to fill, has backpack straps which tuck away when not needed. Also enough space between bladder and bag to fit small items. I use it a lot.

  Having waited a while for this item to come back in stock, once ordered, as usual I received prompt service from the Woodlore team. Have only used the hydration pack a couple of times so far but it seems to be very durable, well made and performed excellently. The internal bladder can be removed and inserted into a Bergan if preferred or if left installed in the outer cover be used independently with the supplied shoulder straps or alternatively clipped onto Karrimor SF packs to taylor it to your own requirements, it seems therefore an extremely versatile and adaptable system. I’m sure it will last for many years and hopefully accompany me on numerous expeditions.

  A well made good quality liquid carrier. Handy top fill and front fill. Not 100% on the mouthpiece as you need to manhandle the mouth piece itself if locked off. A small grumble but if your hands are covered in something unsavoury you don’t want to have to twist the mouthpiece to obtain flow. You’d be fine if you hadn’t locked it off and blew a little air back into the bladder to stop the water flow. Attached to Sabre rucksack it works well or with the shoulder straps. It’s comfortable and holds a decent amount of water for the sweaters out there. I recommend this item. As usual delivered with perfect efficiency.

  Very durable and with ice cubes added, even keeps water cool when desert trekking at 40 C.

  Excellent quality. Over built really so slightly heavier than other options but very tough. Can be mounted in place of or underneath side pockets, presumably it can also be used solo or in conjunction with side pocket on the yoke (sold separately). NB, I have yet to clean it or thoroughly put it through it’s paces. I put off buying this for a while but am glad I finally pulled the trigger on it, worth the money. Ray Mears site offers the best price I have found and their service is always exemplary.

  By far the best hydration bag. I've had many of them and this one stands way ahead of all of them. No leak and bomb proof. Buy it and you'll never look back.

  What a great, usable, well thought-out and functional piece of kit. Fits on the Karrimor SF Sabre 45 perfectly (slightly different shade of OG). Used within 3 days of delivery at an all-day winter activity event for Scouts. I was on my feet all day in below zero temperatures. I was able to keep myself and a few Scouts hydrated. Easy to top up jetboil etc. Able to use both Sabre pockets in addition to having this fitted, making a versatile outfit. Very satisfied.
