FILBE Hydration Backpack

Average: 5 (1 vote)

This is a genuine US military surplus hydration backpack, part of the FILBE family of gear used by the Marine Corps. This pack can be attached to the MC Assault Pack or probably to other MOLLE gear as well. The pack features two zippered pockets, one up top and one at the bottom. MOLLE webbing is also present allowing you the option to add more storage capacity to this pack. The shoulder straps and sternum strap are fully adjustable.

The Camelbak 3L / 100oz bladder was specifically designed to fit into the USMC FILBE Hydration Backpack. The drinking hose has a quick disconnect feature on both ends for easy takedown and cleaning. There is a clip on the hose so you can secure the hose to the front of your pack. Near the bite valve there is a flow on/off switch to prevent leaks while you're not actively using the hydration system.

Generally in good condition, minor stains, but overall functional and exactly what I was expecting.

This is the third hydration pack I have bought from Thunderhead. Each of them has been surplus, so they have been used. They show some fading and a little fraying here and there, which is expected, but all of them are perfectly serviceable. Thunderhead absolutely has the best prices and lightning fast shipping. I look to them first when I shop for gear.
