Water backpacks

It is well known that it is important to stay hydrated all the time. If you are an adventurer or practice any activity that requires you to perform a physical activity, then you probably need a water backpack.

They are well suited for your hydration needs. And the best part is that they come with different features, capacities, etc. so anyone can select the best one that matches their specifications.

They are the best backpacks for men that practice sports.

Outdoor activities are great; they provide a good dose of the physical activity that we all must do. We encourage you to involve in an activity that you love, and also that you be well prepared for it.

You must have all things prepared for your adventure. If you want to get the most out of your outdoor activity then you have to take water backpacks with you.

Why do you need to use water backpacks? There are two main reasons to purchase these type of backpacks.

First, and most important, as we mentioned above, you stay well hydrated in an easy way. By carrying this backpack with you, it will be a constant reminder to drink water.

Second, they make easy for you to stay hydrated in movement. This way you will avoid making stops or slowing down your speed to take out your water bottle to drink.

Now, if you need more reasons to convince yourself to purchase water backpacks, continue reading.

Stability and comfort

Obviously the comfort is an important topic for all adventurers. Yu don’t want to carry overweight or unnecessary stuffs with you in your trip, because that will make you go slower or uncomfortable.

One of the best features of these type of backpacks is that most of them are aerodynamic, which means that they are compressible and narrow generally.

Regarding stability, due to their design they distribute the weight very well between your shoulders, waist and lower back.

Ease of cleaning

This is another good feature that all water backpacks have. You have to clean them eventually. Especially if you are not drinking just plain water, but adding some sort of powder, sugar or maybe you are drinking flavored water, or an energetic drink.

If that is the case we recommend you to clean your backpack every one or two uses, mostly for health issues.

But if you don’t want to clean it so regularly, then you should consider not drinking sugar drinks. Another advice is to leave the bladder full with plain water, or maybe you can store it in the freezer, of course you have to put it before in a plastic bag.

Whatever the case, you must know that the water backpacks are easy to clean, especially the ones that the bags open with a zip on the top.

The backpacks that have a single compartment bladder that has a large opening are also easy to clean, just simply use a brush inside of it.

Make sure to clean the hoses too, don’t forget them.

Now that you probably have decided to purchase water backpacks, then we will mention all the aspects you have to consider to buy one that fits to your requirements.

Aerobic sports

The people who practice these types of sports, like running, cycling or ski must purchase a backpack that doesn’t interfere with their balance.

For that reason the best ones are the designs like waist pack-style or a slender (low profile) style.

Reservoir size

This will depend on the activity and the person. If the activity you are doing requires you to sweat a lot, then you must aim to purchase water backpacks with a large reservoir size.

Also, if you are going to make an activity that takes too long time, it is advisable to be well prepared with a large reservoir, to have plenty of water available for your trip.


Of course if larger the reservoir, the weight will be heavier.

Once again this will depend on the activity you are going to do. Just consider the weight the backpack will have when it is full and think if that is good for the activity you are planning to do.

Waist belt

If the water backpacks will weigh more than 6 pounds when they are full of fluid, then a waist belt is needed.

This will maintain the backpack in the correct place and will help you to distribute the weight in your upper body.

Water backpacks are suitable for any activity, whether you practice hiking, road biking, mountain biking, running, snow sports or climbing, there is a perfect backpack waiting for you to be your company in all your adventures.
