Pros and Cons of DaKine Hydration Pack.
Good product to use for stand up paddleboard. Easy to use, the function is great. It does not interfere with movement stroke. The only complaint is when We cleaned it, We couldn’t remember how to put it together again, so take particular note, or take a picture of where the tube inserts. We just didn’t have any instructions that came with mine. Also after cleaning, which We used a brush kit (sold separately) it is noticing that the pack did not function as efficiently. It was as though there was a hole somewhere in the tube. All connections were secure too, still no luck with it. Lastly, We were hesitating about buying a hydration pack because of the cleaning factor and the amount of mold build up in the tube. After We paddle, when We do not want to clean immediately, stick the pack in the freezer. Its prevents the mold from forming.
Overall the product is recommended. Hopefully, the problems it had, it was severed issues. The deployable bottle holder is nice. I usually put another water bottle in there for long paddles or use it to hold bug spray.
