hydration-pack-vestpac-flyer.jpgJust in time for season, we’ve found a lightweight hydration system from VestPac. Designed in Jackson Hole, this pack features a climate control 3D airmesh in the hydration panel for unbelievable airflow and rugged elastic straps to ensure a snug fit. The shoulder straps are free to move side to side for a custom fit while the waist strap is designed to be worn directly below the chest line for maximum support and comfort. These packs move with your body, eliminating any chance for bouncing or rubbing.  Each model holds different amounts in the BPA free reservoir. The high flow hose and 360 degree bite valve with positional clip make it easy to take a drink.

These VestPacs wick moisture away from your back and chest providing a cooling effect which makes it perfect for paddle-boarding, fishing, festivals, marathons or kayaking. The slim design is soft enough to wear over bare skin or a bikini top, yet strong enough to last a lifetime in the sun, snow and surf. The difference in comfort is like night and day. Some of the styles also have pockets with security flaps, a key ring holder, and a large zippered pocket.  This allows for a place to put the gadgets we just couldn’t live without like our phones and iPods.  They even offer waterproof phone/MP3 player cases and earbuds/wraps that are completely water and sweat proof.

VestPacs are designed to provide the best possible performance for every situation. You can wear these innovative products all day without feeling tired or sore.  It offers a solution to having one custom made pack for many different uses. VestPac is currently offering free shipping on all orders of $50 or more. For more information and to purchase, visit www.vestpac.com.
