There is generally only one thing you need when you are exploring the backcountry. Water! Whether you are hiking in the Wasatch Mountains or bombing down trails on your mountain bike you need a system to deliver hydration to keep you performing at your best. The Bandit Hydration Pack is made with durable 600 Denier nylon which means it will hold up to the toughest conditions. Plus, with enough storage space for most day trips you will be able to enjoy your excursion without having to carry a large day pack.

You may be wondering why our prices are so good. We are glad you asked. As the manufacturer, we decided to sell direct to our customers. We skip the middle men who only up-charge the product anyhow. This way we can give you a quality product, a lifetime guarantee and let you save a little coin in the process.

Not all missions require your full arsenal of equipment. When you need to move quick and don't have a lot of gear to pack the 3V Gear Bandit Hydration Pack should be your first choice. Made of heavy-duty 600D nylon and built as rugged as all other 3V Gear products, this pack will take a beating. The Bandit has a large front pocket with internal mesh pockets for your accessories, a small top pocket for keys or a cell phone, and one large compartment that is expandable to allow you to pack everything you may need. MOLLE compatible for additional storage.

    Great pack and I also own a 511 moab for my 72 hour pack. The Bandit makes a great EDC. You can't beat the price and even better when it brings the hydration pack. Trying buying a hydration pack at Walmart see how expensive they are.Yeah the moab has a bit more room and gun storage but the Bandit doesn't fall too short. Very impressed.

    I originally bought this bag to use on shorter hikes where I only planned to carry water, a rain jacket and a small first aid kit. After a couple of hikes with my 7 year old son, he claimed it for himself and I purchased an Outlaw II for my new bag and couldn't be happier.

    Finally, a Goldilocks bag that meets my low speed high drag needs. Not too big, not too small, just right. Very well made of high quality materials, good stitching and a well thought out design. No nits to pick on this one, it's an excellent product at an excellent price. I've seen other, similar bags out there that cost substantially more that are of lesser quality.
    Oh, come on now, you know you want it, go ahead and click that order button. You've blown more money on burgers and beer. Get this bag, it's a good one.

    Nothing but good things to say! This pack is the perfect size and has plenty of space to carry additional items. The color looks good and the hydration bladder is pretty tough and doesn't leak. Way to go 3VGear for a great affordable product!

    Great Bag!

    Posted by Brian B. on Feb 25th 2018

    I actually won my bag on their give away last fall. When I opened the box and felt the bag and how it was made, I was impressed. My sons and I hunt, hike, ski and for the most part spend our year tearing up our gear. This pack has done extremely well to date and everyone wants one. I have other bags that cost from $80- $300, but let me tell you Brandon and his company are making quality gear. We will continue to buy bags from this company.
    Brandon thanks for making a quality bag.
