BLACKHAWK! S.T.R.I.K.E. Predator Hydration Pack Review

When we consider bug out bags, there are the most known bigger 3-day SHTF bags and after that, the littler "return home bags." Return home packs are intended to travel light and quick back home without any than 24 hours of supplies in addition to an additional change of clothing like mother instructed you to. In a perfect world, an awesome Get Home Bag ought to be well under 10 lbs stacked. I have the bigger 72-hour bags. However the "return home duffle bag" in my truck required a redesign to something more agreeable.

While cruising Black Hawk's site, I found S.T.R.I.K.E. Hydration Pack, which is the ideal size for working up a fast "Return home Bag" complete with hydration pack. This 830 Cubic inch pack is little and light. It is so little some may address what you can truly stuff in it, however considering for 95% of us are under 30 miles from home in our everyday lives you needn't bother with the amounts of survival things like you would in a 3-day pack. Semi-rusty individuals can oversee 1.5-2 MPH which implies even under the least favorable conditions case you are under 24 hours from your home by walking. Considering that "it" will hit the fan at any helpful rate time, we should get ready ourselves and our family for a circumstance where we might be taking home to our fortresses by walking.

Rating: 4.6 / 5.0

Requirement for BLACKHAWK! S.T.R.I.K.E. Predator Hydration Pack

All your requirement for 24 hours of survival is simply water, which the pack gives. However, there are various Security, Safety, Identification, Repair, First Aid, Communication, Hygiene, Fire, Power, Orientation, Shelter, Food , Clothing, Containers, Water and Payment things which could be basic to that initial 24 hours of survival as you advance home by walking.

With water being most of the weight, my return home bag concentrates on securing and care of the body amid the trek and gently touching alternate classifications, all things considered. I am not hoping to set up camp; I essentially need the assets to rush toward home as quick as could be expected under the circumstances. 

My 24-hour things packaged in vacuum packed "Bug Out Cores" in addition to that additional pair of clothing all effortlessly fit inside the Hydration Pack Review including a go down gun.

Fit and Feel

When I consider what I need in a rapid low-drag, escape Dodge, and home in a rush bag, the BLACKHAWK! S.T.R.I.K.E. Predator Hydration Pack Review possesses all the necessary qualities superbly. It is a tough lightweight pack which was intended to be agreeable and secure for dynamic wearing or rapid military circumstances. Blackhawk is known as a standout amongst the most sturdy and agreeable pack creators available and this little pack is no special case. Unfilled is it to a great degree lightweight and full it oversees stacks viably in an adjusted and quick taking care of way.

Slipping on the back and beginning to sweat, the IVS formed back channel shape guarantees the pack gives a lot of ventilation to your sweat-soaked back while including soundness and incredibly enhancing solace. The shoulder straps and mid-section/sternum strap are formed for exceptionally agreeable and secure fit.

This incredible fit guarantees if you are biking hard or running from "significant trouble rising to the surface", the Blackhawk S.T.R.I.K.E. Predator Hydration Pack Review won't move around. I tried the pack through its paces on my bicycle, amid protective drills, and on climbing preparing days my better half and I call "the Trek" and it stayed put without moving and gave a lot of customizability paying little heed to whether I was wearing a coat or shirt.

The S.T.R.I.K.E. Predator Hydration Pack is a great quick taking care of pack, additionally agreeable too. For the most part packs this size are normally constantly quite full, notwithstanding I would have jumped at the chance to have a couple additional pressure straps for times when I evacuate my Bug Out Cores and utilize the pack for game and light travel. An abdomen strap is not a necessity for a pack this size, be that as it may, it would make the pack more sensible when stacked as far as possible.

Features & Functions

The Blackhawk S.T.R.I.K.E. Predator Hydration Pack highlights 830 cubic inches of inside storage room between every one of the pockets which will store around four wine bottles (for Sommeliers pestering out) or a day of survival supplies in addition to the included 100 oz. BLACKHAWK Hydration System.

The Blackhawk's Hydration system included with the pack is celebrated for adaptability and simplicity of upkeep. The beverage system highlights a Bite Me bit esteem and a patent pending fast separate system tube and nibble valve. The Blackhawk fast separate system enormously speeds cleaning and re-establishment in the pack. The bladder is secured by Microban antimicrobial innovation to guarantee the 100oz hydration bladder does not get all loco if not dried properly amid cleanings. The chomp valve is straightforward, simple to utilize, and dribble free. The one shortcoming of this hydration system as a survival bladder is the absence of a water channel system; it must be encouraged clean water. On the off chance that you can respond quick in a survival circumstance, securing several containers of water or filling the bladder from an accessible water source before sprinting home ought not be a gigantic issue. I would love to see Blackhawk offer a discretionary viable in-line earthenware water 99.99% channels that could be effortlessly introduced through Blackhawk's snappy disengage system.

BLACKHAWK! S.T.R.I.K.E. Predator Hydration Pack Usage

Utilization of the hydration pack was basic and simple and the neoprene secured hose could be tucked over into the inverse tube exit gap which considers situating on the privilege or left. The fundamental bladder stores in its own particular zippered compartment, be that as it may if one bladder is insufficient the Blackhawk S.T.R.I.K.E. Predator Hydration pack's primary compartment can be utilized for a second discretionary repository.

The pack itself has an overwhelming obligation fortified drag/convey handle, a lot of additional d-rings, solid YKK zippers with quiet beyond any doubt grasp pulls, and the outside is secured with heaps of MOLLE straps for complete adaptability and a lot of lashing centers.

The huge outside pocket is 9"L x 9.5"W x 2.5"D. The pocket is twofold opens and zippered and about midway, so all your stuff does not drop out. The inside is secured with a field of circle Velcro for similarity with any Velcro holster or frill pockets anyway it accompanies a Velro sponsored embed which is sufficiently flexible to arrange an assortment of pens, pencils, shades, PDAs, and even magazines.

The roomy 16"L x 9.5"W x 2.5"D primary compartment is additionally twofold zippered and opens midway, be that as it may, I wish it would open the distance for stacking.

Inside MOLLE straps spread around 50 % of the back inside for additional lashing, customization and capacity and Blackhawk have likewise coordinated a zippered inside cross section bag. 

For a pack this size, there are a lot of ranges to tuck things you need fast access to. Indeed, even as an every day pack, the primary compartment would give incredible everyday convey pack for a little portable PC.


I do like the possibility of a hydration pack in a survival circumstance and for a "return home bag," I trust it is key. Hydration packs have appeared to advance water utilization, incredibly lessen dehydration, and back reduction strain compared with other convey strategies.
