Hydrapak Jolla Review



Reviewed by Brian Mullin https://www.gramslightbikes.com/

The new Jolla hydration pack from Hydrapak is a comfortable pack, with great carrying capacity, excellent features, the best reservoir in the business and the nicest designed set of pockets I have used. The Jolla is part of Hydrapak’s new Pro Series. The Pro Series constitutes their best design philosophy, features, materials and construction.


Surge Valve
The foremost new feature for me as a longtime Hydrapak user, is that they finally solved their heinously leaky bite valve! The updated Surge Valve doesn’t leak, has a twist shutoff, an adjustable angled elbow, which bites and draws well, and just plain rocks. It can be somewhat difficult to operate the valve with gloved hands, but it’s a pretty minor issue.

Quantum Clip
The drinking hose also attaches with an innovative system called the Quantum Clip (no more Velcro), which uses a magnet clip on the hose, and an adjoining metal piece on the chest compression strap. It takes a bit of practice to get used to the system, but you just drop the hose clip easily on the proper spot with a distinct snap. It also prevents the hose from flopping around when you are bouncing along on rough terrain, which I had always found a bit annoying with hydration packs, in fact, I used to tuck the bite valve under the compression strap to prevent that from happening. One of Hydrapak’s statements about the Quantum Clip is, “keep your hose in check”, I am not even going to touch that one!
