View Full Version : question about the camelbak Thermobak
As an airsofter i dont want to lug around bottles of water so i decided to get a camelbak
Ive read arnie's review of the camelbak and was wondering if it is comfortable to wear under a BDU.
I was planning on wearing a t-shirt, the thermobak over that and covering everything, my flektarn jacket.
Would that be overly bulky and restrict movement?
If it is, then i would go for the camelbak stealth, but that is more expensive and doesnt keep my drinks cool
Really, it just feels like a small back pack. Thats it.
The thermal is designed to keep things warm in the cold (Which works, except the tip of the hose) and cold things cold in the warm.
I love my camel back, I just have a plain one. But in the cold weather I can't use it because it freezes up.

I second that, I have the hydrastorm 100oz and it feels quite good on your back, no restrictions or anything. either hydrator pack is definitly recommended
oh, excellent thanks
i was worried that it might feel bulky under a BDU,
since i dont want to wear the camelbak over it as it might stand out a bit more from the back

Hydrator systems...they store drinking water..right?
If they do, would it work if I filled it with budweiser?

necronomicon your just gonna dehydrate yourself like that but good idea LMAO
Necro... it will get shaken up.. and your camel back might explode. Seriously.
Same thing happens pop/other carbonated soft drinks. They will fix up and it will expand like a balloon in till it explodes.

UNDER a BDU?? If your BDUs are oversized it might work. Otherwise, wear it outside. What, are you afraid the camo patterns will clash?? :D

That makes a lot of sense, Foxtrot. I wouldnt want to have to be removed from the field for being intoxicated, but hey, beer is great and I had to ask :)
Your could (for sheer hell of it and not minding essentially ruining the bladder) make a air release valve, so then you could put carbonated things in there. Just have to do it at the top and leave alil room when filling so it doesnt spray out your precious contents rather then the trapped gas.

Well Necronomicon what dose the trick for me is a good old canteen,
The trick is to be A sniper so you dont have to run(may ruin A perfectly good resource of... Liquid), another good trick is too not have more then 6 canteens on ya at A time ;) lol
