Hydration SystemHydration System

In recreation and other sustained outdoor activities, a hydration system is an apparatus intended to promote its user's drinking enough liquid to support the physical effort involved in the activity. Such systems for consumers were first sold to cyclists, but by the 1990s also had found a substantial market among hikers. Familiar commercial models can also occasionally be recognized being worn by Western military personnel.

The hydration system is usually composed of a bladder carried in the back of the shoulders, which has a tube attached, and easily available to the user so water can be sucked in to the mouth. This system makes it easier to drink water while doing other things.
