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.

Great camelbak replacement! June 2, 2014
Reviewer: Mr mack. from WA United States  
Love it! 3L carriers are usually meant for some big giant piece of crap vest like the IOTV, and hang all the way down (Yes US Army, I mean you.... your vest F***ing sucks). Mate this guy up with a Source 70oz Source bladder on your plate carrier , and you have a match made in heaven! I've got mine on my PIG, and barely know it's there. It's even small enough to wear during a building entry and SSE, but still has enough room for Clif Bars.

High speed piece of kit! January 2, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Far away...  
I ordered this on black friday, and it didn't end up shipping until the fifth of December, and didn't end up getting to me until the 23rd of December! Obviously, I've been waiting quite a while for this.

Basically what I was expecting. The little pull tabs on the front pocket look like something off a kid's backpack, which was kind of a let down, but they should be easy enough to replace with some paracord and a lighter. The paracord, incidentally, it's a pinkish color. I have no idea if this is a deliberate match to the pink in the multicam pattern, but it looks really strange.

Velcro color is less brown, and more olive, as well as the webbing on the back. It looks better with multicam, but worse against the contrast of my coyote plate carrier.

Finally, the carrier is SMALL. Like, perfectly small. It fits on my Crye JPC, which is probably one of the smallest PCs on the market. There is.. an inch, maximum of hang over.

Emdom Vehicle Hydration Carrier - Sewer Green January 4, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Del Rio, TX United States  
Easy to mount to plate carrier.  Well thought out carrier for bladder, could fit a 100oz in but had to cram it in.  Will see how it holds up, beats the extra straps from a camelbak over top of the plate carrier.

Loose, but decent size and color. October 11, 2012
Reviewer: J Mitchell from Garden Grove, CA United States  
While the size and color are good, the MALICE clips leave this hydro carrier a bit loose on the back. If you are going to get this hydro, get extra malice clips to secure it with as the supplied 2 or 3 is not sufficient.

Odd color, excellent kit...no complaints August 31, 2012
Reviewer: Ian from Eagle Pass, TX  
This carrier fits perfect on my TT Plate Carrier and doesn't hang below the back or stick up too high.  Still allows me to access my duty belt with no problems.  Holds a large reservoir and still has a couple extra pockets inside and out to carry a few extra items.  Covered in webbing and easily installed or removed with the included malice clips.  Button down zipper always stays secure.

The EMDOM green is a bit different than OD or RG, but it still fits in well.  Two thumbs up on this one.
