Our new hydration carrier short supports the new Camelbak Mil-spec 100oz/3L Antidote Short reservoir. This reservoir is shorter, wider and lighter than the standard reservoir long. The baffled design reduces reservoir stack and maximizes stability. The new reservoir allowed us to design a simple and low profile carrier that fits better on plate carriers and body armor vest.
The short reservoir saves 20% in weight and lowers profile by 30% over previous systems. The Low-profile, baffled design reduces reservoir stack and maximizes stability. Keeps the reservoir low profile and tight. The empty reservoir dimensions measure 14x9x1 inches.
A brand new reservoir requires a brand new hydration carrier short to fit its unique shape. We made the new carrier wider ,short and just thick enough to support the reservoir when full. This new design fits better on plate carriers because you don’t have the bottom overhang.
The back of the hydration carrier short is covered with plenty of molle attachment webbing. 6 rows x 6 channels provides a good amount of molle/pals webbing to securely attach it to a load bearing molle platform.A drain grommet has been inserted in the bottom of the carrier at the lowest possible place to help with drainage.
The front of the carrier flap has a plenty of loop Velcro for ID, placards or morale patches. While the flap is held closed by 1 ½ inch hook Velcro.
On the inside a piece of webbing extends across the carrier with channels sewn into it . This allows for an adjustable hanger tab to suspend the reservoir from.
The Hydration carrier short is available in: Multicam, A-TACS AU, A-TACS FG, Kryptek Highlander, Kryptek Mandrake, Kryptek Typhon, Coyote, Khaki, Ranger Green, Woodland, ABU, ACU, and Black.
