Hydration is one of the foremost underlying elements to performance, safety and health in the wilderness. Packs with hydration sleeves and tubing routing allow you to stay hydrated without suspension of your activity. You can drink smaller quantities of water more frequently, staying hydrated as efficiently as possible. Hydration accessories are especially convenient when you are trying to get somewhere in a specific amount of time or do not feel like having to pull over your bike to get a drink. A potpourri of products exist to help you clean and dry your hydration accessories, as well as upgrade or replace bite valve, tubing and bladder components. Preeminent hydration accessory brands include MSR, Osprey, Camelbak, Platypus and Salomon.
