These packs are issued to the United States Marine Corps to keep the troops hydrated. The pack itself has been issued but the bladders and mouth pieces are new! No need to worry about getting a used bladder. Military hydration packs such as this one can be worn over the back or inserted into a field pack. In the USMC, the pack used would be the ILBE Assault Pack. Staying hydrated in between water stops is made easier with the 3 litre capacity.
The internal bladder is protected by a coyote shell made from strong, 1000D Cordura nylon. Side and rear zips allow the bladder to be inserted and removed easily. The tube features a bite-off dust cap with a valve and button operation. Each shoulder strap has a quick release buckle with a sternum strap in between them for stability. Hydration backs are an excellent option for carrying water while hiking, hunting or even cycling. They're also popular among joggers and ultra runners. Don't pass up the opportunity to grab a high quality military hydration pack!

Came tagged with names and was a little smelly. Bit of a wash and it was 100% mint.
I believe these are Israeli Contractor supplied to the USMC and you can tell. Hard to benchmark agains a commercial product, nothing can come close to this military spec item.
