Rider | Low Profile
Hydration Pack | 3L
(100 oz.)

The Rider is SOURCE’s most versatile low profile hydration system. A low profile hydration pack 3L (100 oz.) / 2L (70 oz.), it is designed specifically for ballistic vest integration, yet quickly converts for back carriage or backpack insertion.


Rider is SOURCE’s premier low profile hydration pack, designed specifically for ballistic vest integration yet quickly converts for back carriage or ruck insertion. Maximum utilization of our low profile technology greatly reduces the depth of the carrier making it a true low profile system. The Rider is a component of SOURCE Virtus Soldier System as selected by the UK MOD in 2015 for the British Armed Forces.
