Apidura Frame Pack Hydration Bladder Review (Frame Bag Water Bladder!?)
Carrying a large volume of water for bikepacking trips can be challenging, but it’s not impossible. In our latest video, Neil dives into why he carries a hydration bladder for nearly all of his bikepacking trips and shares his review of the new 3L Apidura Frame Pack Hydration Bladder, a purpose-built hydration bladder for your frame pack…
These days, there are dozens of creative methods for carrying water within a bikepacking setup. Bottles of all shapes and sizes, various types of cages and brackets, and bags and bladders all serve as good solutions that can be used independently or combined to make a good water-carrying system. One that you don’t hear about too often is a bladder stored within a frame bag. Apidura recently released a bladder designed specifically for this task. In our latest video, Neil reviews the 3-liter Apidura Frame Pack Hydration Bladder. Watch it below.
Apidura’s Frame Pack Hydration Bladder features a roll-top closure to allow refilling the bladder without removing it from the frame pack. It also features a quick click connect system, a high flow-bite valve, and fill markings on the bag let you know how much water is left inside.
Shaped to be compatible with nearly all Apidura Backcountry and Expedition frame packs, the Frame Pack Hydration Bladder also works with many other frame bags and half-frame bags, as Neil noted in the review. And it’s also available in a smaller 1L size.
