Emdom Vehicle Hydration Carrier

by Sean
Emdom Vehicle Hydration Carrier - When I found out we were going to carry Emdom Gear, I insisted we get this hydration carrier. It's short (in length) so it doesn't hang below your armor (Perfect for the PIG Plate Carrier). This allows you to properly engage the kidney pad on your ruck! I hate humping a ruck for miles and not being able to properly seat my ruck, it really wears on you by mile 12, by mile 18 you want to punch somebody in the face. This hydration carrier lets you have the benefits of having a hydration carrier attached to your armor, without the hassle plus it's very roomy. Plenty of room for extra gear despite its small size. It has several low profile pockets, velcro panels in the inside and outside, and a small mesh pocket for malaria pills or water purification tablets. It also has an elastic band inside to hold your hydration carrier in place snugly. I really love this carrier, probably the pinnacle of MOLLE hydration carriers. View More SKD Staff Picks

The Emdom Vehicle Hydration Carrier is a shorter, wider version of Emdom's standard H2O hydration carrier. It fits a standard 70 oz wide reservoir. It is specially designed for vehicle drivers and operators who prefer a shorter hydration carrier. Being shorter and wider, the bottom of the vehicle hydration carrier does not touch the seat in sitting. It eliminates the problem with the armor being pushed up when seated due to the hydration carrier. Besides, a shorter hydration carrier allows operators to carry a bigger fanny pack or other gear at the center of the back at the waist.

Like our standard H2O hydration carrier, the vehicle hydration carrier can be mounted directly to any MALICE clip compatible platform (vests / armor / load bearing equipment); or be used as a stand-alone hydration system after installing a pair of removable shoulder straps (sold separately); perfect as a small hydration pack for day to day use. The vehicle hydration carrier is constructed of 1000 Denier Cordura nylon, features low infrared reflective [IRR] buckles, Mil-spec webbing, zippers, and materials that provide an edge on the battlefield and during night ops.

The vehicle hydration carrier features full coverage of color / camo matched MALICE webbing on the front and sides for attachment of other modular pouches. It has a reservoir compartment and a front accessory pocket with two zippered openings (top and bottom) for easy access to long and short items inside. Long items such as antenna or a spare reservoir can be accessed through the top zipper opening. Small items located at the bottom of the pocket are easily accessed through the lower zipper opening, halfway down.

The reservoir compartment has a double zipper opening protected by a rain flap. The zipper ends feature double snap security to prevent accidental opening. At the top of the carrier is the elastic-covered hydration port, large enough to fit any mouth piece without having to take it apart. Inside the reservoir compartment is a mesh reservoir pocket with 4” wide elastic compression strap for maximum security and compression, a paracord reservoir hang loop for better weight distribution, a mesh zipper pocket (5” x 5”) for hydration accessories (connectors, cleaning tablets and spare bite valve), and a loop Velcro panel (4” x 4”) behind the zipper pocket for extra patches and IFF tape storage.

At the front of the carrier is a 5.5” x 3” MALICE loop Velcro panel for attachment of unit/identification patches or other MALICE pouches. There are four front webbing loops (attach points) for extra tie downs, or to secure the carrier to other load bearing systems or rucks.

At the back of the carrier is the MALICE clip matrix. The carrier requires three long and three short MALICE clips (not included), offering extremely secure mounting to any MALICE / PALS / ALICE platform. For stand-alone carry, there are four attachment points at the rear for shoulder strap installation (see below for details). Backed with Emdom's lifetime warranty. PLEASE NOTE: Hydration reservoir and the low profile H2O shoulder strap system are not included.

Reviewer: Coop from Purcellville, VA United States  
Once again the SKD staff picks freakin' rock. The Emdom hydration carrier is super tough, fits well and looks good on my PIG plate carrier. Two thumbs up for the product and two thumbs up to SKD and the gang.

Nicely Made! January 1, 2015
Reviewer: Responsible Citizen from United States  
Good Stuff:  The stitching is rock solid.  Bought it for the compact size and it doesn't disappoint!

Bad Stuff:  MALICE/MOLLE alignment. Multicam slightly different than my carrier multicam.

So, I LOVE the size of this thing.  Compact, thank you very much. Sewing is SOLID.  Let's face it - capacity and size are why you buy the hydration pouch you do.  This is a great choice.  The negative here is the side that mounts to your plate carrier has three columns to attach the MALICE clips to.  But, the width of the pouch means it will be going over 4 rows of MOLLE on your carrier.  I chose the MALICE clips when I bought this from SKDTac and only used 2 of each on the outside rows of MOLLE/MALICE.  

Mounting this on TAG Banshee and it leaves two rows of MOLLE on the outside edges in the back (1 per side) and hangs less than an inch below the bottom of the carrier.  EXACTLY why I bought this.  It is, however, slightly more vibrant of a multicam pattern than the PC.  No biggie.

Emdom Vehicle Hydro January 1, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Highlands Ranch, CO United States  
I bought the Emdom Vehicle Hydro to go on the back of my TAG/Shellback Tactical Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier. It fits perfectly on the back panel with almost no overhang. There are slots for para-cord to allow you to cinch the pack down. This is a great option that will allow you to carry a lot on the back of small cut plate carriers. I bought this pack to replace my TYR tactical 50oz Hydration carrier, because I wanted something that could hold more that still fit nicely on my back panel. The velcro on the back is also multicam (on the multicam version) which is a great touch. The 2 zippers snap together which is another great touch, and is nice when using bolt cutters inside the pouch. The only potential downside that I can see with this pack is that the Para cord pull tabs on the zippers are slightly off colored (pinkish?), but that is a tiny flaw in my opinion. Overall, a well made pack that is perfect for small cut plate carriers.
