What We Like About the Jetflow Tomahawk Hydration Pack
No Soft-sided Bladder. The main difference between the Jetflow Hydration Pack and the other hydration packs on the market is the soft-sided bladder. The Jetflow Hydration Pack doesn’t have one. WooHoo! That’s right. You can use water bottles, sports drink bottles, soda bottles, etc…
No Hassle. Since the Jetflow Hydration Pack doesn’t have a bladder, you don’t have all the hassle that soft-sided bladders create (cleaning the bladder, filling the bladder and that bad taste created by… you guessed it- the bladder).
Easy to Assemble. Just screw the bottle onto the Jetflow manifold. The bottle fits upside down in the pack.
Easy to Clean. Just run the components through the dishwasher.
Earphone/headphone Access. Sometimes I like to listen to my tunes.
Reflective taping. I like this added safety measure, which really comes in handy when you are riding your bike. It also looks really sharp on the pack.
What We’re Not So Crazy About
Actually, I really like this hydration pack for single person usage. However, some people have raised questions regarding this hydration pack and the environment since it uses water bottles. The water bottles used by this hydration pack are recyclable or you can purchase a reusable Nalgene® bottle for this pack. For this reason, I feel that this pack is as environmentally friendly as any pack on the market.
The Bottom Line
The Jetflow Tomahawk Hydration Pack takes the hassle out of hydration by replacing the soft-sided bladder with water bottles, sport drink bottles and more. This allows us to shift our focus away from hydration and back to our hikes and the beautiful nature around us.
