Widepac wide opening access
Patented slide closure for easy filling, draining and cleaning. Airtight Seal!
Helix valve with Dirt-Shield protective cover
Bite high flow valve, a marvel in hydration valves. Push-pull operation - no biting required. Angled valve allows the tube to be 25 cm shorter so there is less tube to hang up or bounce around. Helix offers hands free operation with tactile shut-off indicator for low light operation. No more dragging in the dirt! Dirt-Shield protective cover keeps valve free of dirt and protected during transport.
Cool weave cover tube
Insulates and blocks UV-light. Water stays cool and bacteria free from the first to last sip.
New technology for improved integration of hydration systems with body armor and vests. Custom made size, shape and thickness. We have the ability to produce systems to any given capacity and shape while keeping a consistent thickness throughout the surface of the system. Gravity isn’t an issue and does not affect the shape of the reservoir.
Source hydration technology:
Glass-Like Film Technology
A multi-layer Polyethylene film utilizing Source's Glass-Like technology, which prevents bio-film build up
making the system self-cleaning
. Glass-Like Film is 2000% smoother than standard TPU
films, with virtually no difference from glass itself.
Taste-Free and BPA free
Co-extruded PE film retains pure liquid taste with no plastic flavor. BPA and Phthalate free. As you will see below the synergy of the Glass-Like plastic film and Grunge-Guard gives you the assurance that your drinking water stays fresh, odor and taste-free for days, even weeks.
An FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registered antibacterial permanently embedded into the reservoir and tube to block bacteria growth. Effective for the life of the system. This protection has no effect on the water and is non-leaching.
Source technologies combined represent the next generation in hydration systems, in which cleaning is no longer an issue. Their systems require the lowest maintenance on the market.
