3 Best Hydration Packs Under $30

Hello outdoor adventurers! As you all know, it has been heating up this March. Summer is right around the corner and you don’t want to be caught in the heat without a hydration pack. A hydration pack is basically a lightweight backpack that carries a liter or two of water. Some packs have a couple pockets to store your personal items, such as your phone, a mini first aid kit or a protein bar. They are generally used while hiking, biking, running or camping. If you never have purchased a hydration pack and you plan exploring the outdoors, please get one! Seriously…they are a life saver.

Hydration packs range in price from $20- $250, depending on the brand and overall size of the backpack. The three packs listed below are quality products for their price range and are perfect for the beginner explorer! Besides, even if you decide that becoming the next Bear Grylls is not your soul mission in life, then you didn’t burn a whole in your wallet in the process. FYI, the hydration packs below were not listed in any particular order. If you want to purchase one of them, click on the title of the hydration pack you want and the link will take you directly to Amazon.

Camden Gears’ Water Bladder backpack is lightweight, has breathable mesh fabric and includes a chest and waist strap for a snug fit. The bite valve is extendable, making it easy to reach.

Hopefully one of these three hydration packs appeals to your outdoor needs. Personally, I bought the Camden Gear pack because it is known to be Amazon’s best seller. Also, the chest strap and waist strap make the pack feel secure against my body, making hiking easier in the process. The storage pockets were also a big plus! However, any three of these affordable hydration packs will work for individuals who enjoy an active lifestyle.  So choose one and start planning your next outdoor adventure!
