Which Camelbak fits in Scout hydration sleeve?
Is it the HOTSHOT 2L??

Ideally a page on Kifaru site listing this could be useful.
Thanks.

Resistor, the 72oz Camelbak Hotshot fits perfect in the Scout bladder compartment. I'm sure you could find other bladders from Camelbak (and other manufacturers) that would fit, but I just happened to try the 720z Hotshot myself, and that's how I know it will fit.

Could you fellas recommend one for my EMR system?

I'd also be interesting in knowing which one fits the ZXR.
Thanks.

Hey guys, any bladder system will work in all of our packs, from the Marauder on up. You just have to decide on what brand you like.

Along the same lines, what hydro bladder will fit in a tailgunner I?

Umpota, the easiest way to find that out, would be to take your Tailgunner I down to an REI or similar type store, and go to the bicycle section where they have all the Camelbak and other brand hydration packs. Also, check out the running section of the store. There are a bunch of smaller type bladders on the market, I think down to 32oz or maybe less. I guarantee you will find something that will work in your Tailgunner.

Platypus

low profile polyethylene bladders comes in a variety of capacities from .3L to 3L+

benefits - packs small, easily cleaned, relatively low cost bladders

used two sport bottles (500ml) as hydro inside my columbia jacket

the bladders run about 8 bucks or less (capped)

pull spouts are a buck apart and the optional hoser kit runs about 11.00

BTW

I am able to place 2 x 1L bladders in my TG I

Mel,

I was thinking along the lines of what size would work best. Any recommendations?

I ordered a 2L HotShot for my Scout from 1SKS back on 12/3/05.

Still waiting...
