Source Summit Hydration Pack
Vital Review
Overall Review
Source produces one of, if not THE best bladders in the hydration game. Thanks to some pretty advanced manufacturing techniques that render the finish of their bladders particularly resistant to build-up of gunk and bacteria, these bladders are capable of staying fresh with little to no maintenance for years. We have pushed this aspect to the limit and beyond, and we’re still here to tell the tale. Source also makes various hydration packs, like the Hipster pack that put a new spin on the good old bumbag a few years ago. For 2020, Source has prepared an update of the Hipster to add a little...

Source Hipster Hydration Belt
Vital Review
Overall Review
Review by Amanda Wentz // Photos by Lear Miller (Action) and Brandon Turman (Product)One of the more surprising trends in enduro (aside from enduro itself) is the rebirth of the fanny pack. Stolen from Disneyland tourists and grey-haired slot machine jockeys, the fanny pack has become just as much a part of the enduro uniform as half shells and goggles. Is this just a trend or are the fanny-packers really onto something? Source believes in the design so much that they created the Hipster Hydration Belt and we put it to the test, to find out if the trend has merit.Hipster Hydration Belt...

Source Fuse 12L Hydration Pack
Vital Review
Overall Review
Review by Fred RobinsonSOURCE Hydration might not be the first name you think of when it's time to buy a new hydration pack, but with what we've seen from SOURCE so far, that will likely be changing in the near future. Recently we've had the chance to test a slew of products from SOURCE Hydration, with the latest being the Fuse 12L Hydration Pack. With a large 12L cargo carrying capacity and 3L bladder, the Fuse Pack is intended for short hikes and rides, but in our opinion a pack this size is ample for longer days in the saddle. With a minimalist approach in terms of construction yet still...

Source Ultimate Hydration System
Vital Review
Overall Review
Review by Fred RobinsonSource has been in the hydration game for over 25 years and is sold worldwide in more than 25 countries. Based in Israel, all of Source's products are made in-house by a team of over 200 workers with a percentage of their net-profit going towards local environmental activities. With their recent push towards a more complete line of mountain bike specific products, we got a chance to check out their Ultimate Hydration System: a stand-alone reservoir with some unique accessories intended to fit not only in Source's own packs, but any other hydration pack you may already...

Source Race 15L Hydration Pack
Vital Review
Overall Review
by Lee TrumporeHydration packs have come a long way in the past few years, with more and more features being added to what was once just a simple method of carrying extra water on a ride. With many riders (and an increasing number of bike designs) forgoing traditional water bottles the need for just the right pack has become more important than ever. The Source Race 15L is aimed at riders looking to maximize water capacity and accessory space in a minimalist design. We filled it up and hit the trails to see what it is really made of.Source Race 15L Highlights 15 liter storage capacity Light...
