Internet retailers Bikesales4u have just introduced a range of hydration backpacks to their portfolio from Caribee, a leading outdoor brand from Australia.
The Hi-Vis Flow, for example, is a slimline and lightweight pack aimed at cyclists, runners or anyone else needing an efficient hydration system when on the move. It comes with two zipped side pockets for your phone, keys, multi-tool, energy bars or other small bits and pieces. The hydration bladder is two litres and has a screw cap filling port for easy cleaning.
It’s high visibility orange in colour, you get reflective piping for additional safety on the road, and it’ll set you back £35. The Flow is also available in non-high viz options at the same price.
