Hydrapak, creators of innovative and advanced hands-free fluid delivery, unveils two new packs, the Tortuga and the Borracho. Ideal for all winter activities, both packs feature ample space for tools, extra layers and gear. Both offer a unique integrated shoulder strap design, that covers and insulates the drink tube and allows for easy access to the bite valve.
The Tortuga is the perfect lift-access pack due to its compact design which includes a stylized EVA shell that is tough enough to withstand crashes in the park, tumbles down a couloir and leaning back on the chairlift. This pack features a large zipper access pocket with several internal gear pockets, removable cell phone pocket, as well as a 70 oz. reservoir and 430 cubic inches of storage. The Tortuga comes in black or urban camo and the msrp is $84.99.
The Borracho is the Tortuga’s big brother, offering a 100 oz reservoir and a whopping 1200 cubic inches of cargo space. Perfect for a ride, big air day or daypack, the Borracho features a front bungee for helmets, a durable molded EVA front shell, numerous gear organizer pockets, a traditional backpack harness and a removable waist belt with stash pockets. The Borracho comes in
urban camo with an msrp of $99.99.
Both the Tortuga and the Borracho boast Hydrapak’s unique user-friendly drink system, the patented Reversible Reservoir â€“ which is a cinch to turn inside out, clean and dry â€“ Plug-n-Play connector valves allowing the drink tube to be disconnected when filling the reservoir, without leaks — and the patented Easy Flo Bite Valve.
