Good idea but the hose needs to be 1 .5metres long at least so surf ski paddlers can mount behind footplate Most ocean paddlers value stability as stanility equals power
Longer hose allows for mounting low down lowers the centre of gravity
It is not worn on the back and hose is too short serious oversight
It has its own little criss-cross bungees to make up for the bungee space it takes up on the forward deck of your kayak. There is even a little zipper at the bottom where you can store lip wax or other small items. It has a non-skid bottom surface to help it stay put on the kayak deck. It even comes with a handy whistle clipped to the drinking tube, and of course has all of the standard hydration pack features one expects from Camelbak, like interior webbed reservoir, large filling opening, quick detach tube, bite valve cover, etc. There are definitely reasons why Camelbak is a leader in the active outdoor activities hydration business.
When I first got this water pack, It seemed to me that the hooks for attaching it to the kayak bungees might be a bit small, and the gates on them might possibly be susceptible to damage with repeated use. However, after over a year of use, they all still work just fine. Not counting required gear like a paddle and PFD, this is definitely the best, and most used, kayak accessory that I have, and I highly recommend it!
