Problem: Back-mounted hydration systems are the best way for the soldier to drink while on the move. Problem is that during rigorous activities they can become a nusiance; bouncing, flopping around and that extra set of shoulder straps just complicates matters even more, not good. Refilling, yet another issue!
Solution: The H.U.M.P. (Hydration Utility Multiple Platform) - Finally, a simple and effective way to securely attach back-mounted hydration systems to load bearing equipment. The H.U.M.P. attaches to all load bearing equipment (including A.L.I.C.E. / Ruck packs). Just open the top flap, drop your complete system in and go. Stability and simplicity – no bouncing around during rigorous activities and no extra set of shoulder straps to contend with. Makes refills easier, too!
