So I’ve been wanting to buy a hydration pack for outdoor/ paintball reasons and I finally got one. I picked up a Northwest Territories and I believe it was a 2 liter bladder and 16 in. pack for $20 at K-Mart. I was trying it on today and I found out that it works great with my TiPX set up:

It has 2 side pockets that fit the mags very well and snug, reaching back and grabbing them would be easy in-game:

The 13cu/3000psi tank also fits well in the same pocket where the bladder goes:

It has a little pocket that fits the barrel plug and barrel socks very well. Also nice if you want to store your keys:

Finally, you can put the pistol in between you and the strap to make a holster. It’s not the best, but it works:

I plan on using it when I’m out at scenarios and LL :D

The big box store Hydration bladders are actually pretty well made and hold up.

They're not camelbacks, but they get the job done.

Kind of sucks that they don't come in black, tan, or green, though.

Let us know how well this thing holds up after a couple uses.

I bought a cheap hydration bladder from Dick's Sporting Goods, not this brand though.
It worked fine for a couple uses then began to leak all over my back.

I ended up ponying up the cash for a real Camelback when they went on sale on Amazon.

Morgan-CRP probably messed with it.

Nice find by the way, it sucks being thirsty in game!

.I never know what to put in these things.

*UPDATE*

Used this at a scenario 2 weeks ago. Works great! The top or the bladder was a bit of a hassle to close but I did it, Maybe it just needs to be broken in. No leaks. As for the pack and my pistol play, worked great. Didn't lose a mag (thankfully) and even managed to store a pod of spare paint in it. Overall? I am quite satisfied. Especially for $20.

Nice solution. Could come in handy for scenarios in particular, when a bottle of water in the pod pack (my typical choice) is not enough.

on topic that looks awesome.

We have Coleman ones we distribute to k-mart, walmart, target, big 5, the sports authority, etc. a lot like those for about $20 that come in black, red, orange, and green. On a Coleman website I think you might even be able to get the replacement bladders for ~$10.
