Deuter Hydro Lite 2.0 Pack - 185cu in $0.00
Deuter ventures into the purely hydration pack arena with the Hydro Lite Line. The Deuter Hydrolite 2.0 Hydration Pack is under a pound and gives just enough space for a few essentials. Water is the essential. The pack has a small front pocket for pump, tools, and semi-valuables. There's even a loop for a blinky light.
Remember, this is a minimalist pack for the days when you want to schlep nothing other than water, and a few tools. You're not sticking clothing in here.
The 2.0 uses the Deuter Airstripes comfort system. Airstripes are two strips of vented foam pads that sit between the back and the pack, creating a channel for the spine and allowing sweat to evaporate through the pads. The shoulder straps are mesh. There is a sternum strap and hip belt for stability as well.
Deuter has chosen not to make their own bladder, but use one from Source, an Israeli company. The Hydro Lite 2.0 get the Streamer 2.0 Reservoir. The Z-Valve is a plastic valve covered by a soft rubber cover that is leak-proof. Bite and the liquid flows. Let go, and the flow stops. It's that easy. There is a plastic cover that protects the valve, though many leave it in the car when riding. The reservoir itself is made from a BPA-free polyethylene (PE) plastic that boasts a surface as smooth as glass. Smooth is important because the smoother the surface, the harder it is for bacteria to attach. In addition, the surface makes it harder for taste, like old Cytomax, to remain after the bladder has been washed. Sealing the pouch is a bar-and-clip system that allows the bladder to be both opened completely and sealed completely, and is tough enough to be landed on without bursting.
The Deuter Hydro Lite 2.0 Hydration Pack has 185 cubic inches (3 liters) of cargo capacity. It comes with a 2-liter reservoir insulated with Mylar, the same material as those reflective blankets passed out after marathons. Dimensions are 15" tall by 7" wide by 3" deep. There are two different grades of pack cloth utilized, both Diamond Lite for panels that are less likely to be abraded, and Ballistic Lite for panels more likely to be abraded. The available color combination is Fire/Titan. Including the bladder, it weighs 545g (1.20 lbs).

Insulated, Mylar-lined Main Compartment
AIRSTRIPES Back System
My water stays cold to the very last drop even after I left it in a hot car in the sun for 3 hrs. Hose doesn't leak like every other camelbak I've owned has. Pretty comfortable the air channel hype probably only works if your moving, rapidly, like riding a bike or running and the pocket can hold about 2 granola bars and a cell phone which is good enough for me. The bladder isn't a screw top-it's a fold-over with a clip-but it hasn't leaked. That and a detachable hose make the bladder really easy to keep clean. Overall its the best hydro pack out there based just on how well it keeps your water cool.
