REI Squirt hydration system

Mixed bag…

Product features: Zippered main compartment, zippered small front pocket, mesh pocket interior for 1 liter hydration reservoir, mesh side pockets, reflective piping and 1 liter hydration reservoir with bite valve.

We got one of these for my daughter’s birthday and overall I have mixed feelings about it.  It is great for hiking, with padded shoulder straps and chest and waist buckles for added comfort.  Everything they might need for an outdoor adventure fits perfectly.

However, perhaps we got it for her too young (age 3) because the bite valve was just a little too tempting to chew on or bite too hard and was broken within the first couple of weeks.  On the flip side, not having to stop for water breaks during those few weeks was awesome!

This bag has proven not good for school books, coloring, etc that you would need for perhaps an overnight or school. The narrow design of the bag limits many of the things they might like to pack in it.
