NOTE ON SYSTEMA: All PIG items with "[SYSTEMA]" in the product title are related to the PIG Brig Plate Carrier and PIG Brig Chest Rig product family. Please refer to the product descriptions for how each respective SYSTEMA product relates to the product family.

Designed for the more compact Hydrapak First Wave 2L Military Reservoirs and Source WXP 2L Hydration Bladders, the PIG Hydration Carrier (2L) offers innovations that will increase performance while minimizing bulk and weight. The wide-profile mouth offers easy access to your hydration bladder for refilling and maintenance. A 4" elastic band adds compression to the bottom of the bladder which serves to counteract the "fat belly" effect as the bladder empties. The bottom of the back panel is made of mesh, to aid in drainage and evaporation of condensation. Hydration ports are in the top corners, allowing directional routing to either shoulder.

Weighing in at only 5 ounces, the PIG Hydration Carrier doesn't make carrying water any harder than it should be. 8.4 grams of sex-appeal have been manufactured into each carrier, making this one of the best looking pieces of kit you will attach to your host molle platform.

As part of the new [SYSTEMA] family of product, this Hydration Carrier not only works with the PIG MK-1 Shoulder Straps, but integrates directly with the PIG BRIG CR (Chest Rig) via the PIG Brig CR-LB (Load Bearing) Harness. Direct Molle interface is achieved via 2 Long and 2 Short Malice Clips, which are included.

Source bladder pictured is NOT included with this carrier and must be purchased separately.

    Perfect size

    The Ranger Green 2L PIG hydration carrier perfectly matches my Ferro Concepts Slickster plate carrier color, so much so that when I showed it to my partner she didn't even notice the new addition. I used 5.11 molle to velcro adapters to attach it and it sits very well.

    Great low profile hydration carrier! No sling hang-ups with rifle transitions, lightweight and the compression elastic keep the bladder from sagging. Only wish there was a loop to hang the bladder.

    Put the pig hydration carrier through itÕs paces very soon after receiving it. Hooked it up to my pig pc and started a long training day of mock building clearing, and hostage situation. It took everything we put our equipment through and came out like a champ . Very well made, Tough gear. Would recommend to anyone anywhere best gear I have used thus far!!!!

    Solid Gear

    Was looking for a hydration carrier that was wider and flatter than the typical carriers out there. This model fit the bill perfectly. It is a perfect fit for a plate carrier or entry vest. The ranger green color is a perfect match to my other gear. The quality of nylon and stitching is excellent, and the elastic bladder compression band works as advertised. The beaver tail design is perfect for tucking the bottom portion under my gas mask carrier as it is attached to the vest over the hydration carrier.

    Only missing one thing

    It would be great if there were a D-ring or loop at the top of the interior to secure a hydration bladder. Other than that, this is the best hydration pouch I've ever owned. No complaints!

    Sturdy. Its on my pig plate carrier and does what its supposed to do. I like the elastic on the lower part to keep the water higher as it gets empty. Well made and highly recommend.
