Good luck with it. I went to LL Bean and checked it out. It's still not good enough to get me out of my Simms Guide Vest!

I, too, dehydrate easily. This year, i'm stuffing all of my fishing stuff in my Camelbak backpack. The bladder is huge, the pack holds everything. Jury's still out on this idea.

If I put a big bladder in my vest, it pulled back and hurt my shoulders. Consider a filter/ pump and a small bladder. Never worry about enough water!

HTH,
CAB

MSR MiniWorks EX Water Filter - Eastern Mountain Sports and a water bottle that screws on to it that I bought at a local backpacking store. Virtually no weight and a unlimited supply of water at my finger tips.

I just picked up a mesh back vest (StreamSide Spirit) and it fits brilliantly with my camel back over top.

I like this idea with a sling, chest or waist pack. I do this sometimes with my Camelbak backpack.

When I wear my vest, i use just the basic Camelbak under the vest.

Default Re: Vest with hydration

I've used this on a couple of trips upon recommendations here and for the most part am pretty happy with it. I've drank water from a few different streams and have not fallen ill whatsoever. Fresh cool water whenever you want it. The only downside is the filter is not the easiest to get water moving through, especially when brand new but once you use it it becomes easier.
