Field Test: Hydration Packs
Our team rates the best new thirst quenchers.
Drink enough water. It’s one of the first rules every hiker learns, and just as important to follow whether you’re a light-and-fast speedster, dawn-to-dusk mileage monster, or short-jaunt day tripper. After testing 15 daysize hydration packs across four months and as many continents, we picked the top six—the ones that offer substantial upgrades in comfort, stability, organization, and water access. So fill up, choose a trail, and head out knowing your next sip is right where you need it.
The Gregory Citro 30 scored high for its all-day comfort.
