SIS gels – leaking packs?
Nickdavies, exactly the same experience here. They actually seem to leak between an inner and outer layer, then out the seams. Sent photos back to SIS but they didn’t seem too bothered. Guessing it’s a known problem. Shame really as I like the SIS gels as they work well without water.
Bit of a pain too when they leak in the camelback or jersey pocket 🙁
Looks like this… (You can see the bubbles in the gel between the inner and outer packaging.)

Seems that this was tempting fate
The original article made a fair bit of mention of their burst testing to avoid the situations above…Posted 4 years ago
Not much really. Just asked that I sent some photos. They said they’d send a replacement batch but i was a bit surprised when I only got 5 new ones to replace my box of 30! Couldn’t be bothered chasing it up though.
Edit: … and of the new ones they sent me most of them leaked!Posted 4 years agoBlazin-saddlesMember
I too have had several leaky gel packs, in the bottom of my kit bag. tedious!
SIS seem to have lost their way a bit since being bought out by the money men the other year. Was a small family owned company with a load of good people working there that cared. I have had several orders recently that were wrong, over charged, missing items. contacted them but no one seemed to care all that much.Posted 4 years ago
Yeah could have been a dodgy batch, but the fact that the packs they sent as replacement for the ones that leaked also leaked… well it’s not encouraging. And if it was a known dodgy batch to SIS they didn’t really make much of an effort when it came to sorting it out. Shall get another small batch and see how it goes.Posted 4 years ago
