Hydro Lite 3.0
This 3L hydration pack is probably the simplest pack that Deuter sells. It comes with one zipped pouch that can carry your keys, some tools and maybe a spare tube. The water reservoir uses the Deuter Stream Clip which quickly gives you access to the wide mouth opening to quickly fill the reservoir with water. There are shoulder, chest and a waist strap to secure the pack to you during those tight single track runs. The bite valve has a tethered bite valve cover to keep the bite valve clean on the trails. Also, with one simple twisting motion of the bite valve, you can instantly stop water from flowing during transportation. Included are a reflective tail light strap, a tube/bite valve mount on the right shoulder strap to help you quickly access the bite valve and an aluminized interior that is reported to keep the water cooler or hotter longer. Lastly, this Deuter hydration pack, like all of their hydration packs use the Airstripes design to better ventilate your back while using the Deuter on the trails.
Advertised at 1 pound 3 ounces, my Pelouze digital showed this was absolutely correct.
