New Platypus Hydration Packs

by David Hayward 2

Seattle-based Platypus send word of their new hydration packs, aimed at various different kinds of riding and with gender specific options available. What you might not know about Platypus is that the founders of their parent company, Cascade Designs, invented the Therm-A-Rest, making the original prototype with some foam, a sheet of plastic, and a sandwich toaster.

  1. I love platypus, got my first bladder from them 20 years ago, like how the bite valve looks the same. The bags look good, but it’d take a lot to separate me from my evoc blackline.

  2. My platypus bladders have remained mould-free in about 15 years!
    Love the colours above.
