The Hydro 3 has been designed specifically as an active riding pack with Kriega's unique Quadloc harness system. Providing a level of fit and comfort unequalled by any other hydration system, with a fully adjustable back-length and unrestricted underarm movement. Once set, the pack is exceptionally convenient to use, with none of the harness strap re-adjustment necessary on conventional harness systems. The adjustable back also allows the pack position to be moved up to allow large waistpacks to be also worn. Hydro 3 can be worn with or without a waiststrap - Kriega recommends using the waiststrap for maximum stability, when carrying the full 3 litre (100 oz) water capacity.
1-litre side access zip pocket
Shock-cord for external storage
Removable waist strap
Unique QUADLOC harness: adjustable back length with total arm freedom
Really excellent versatile and well made hydration pack.
I'm fairly new to Kriega stuff and between this pack and my new R8 waist pack, I can say I am wholly impressed with their design, construction, quality and value.
This hydration pack is well made, thoughtfully designed, carries the load evenly and securely. The included bladder is feature laden and compared to your average Camelbak bladder (which I previously was using). The wide full-width opening with folding closure makes filling, cleaning and drying easy, the Velcro tube attachment is handy and the insulated tubing is appreciated for keeping that first gulp of water cold.
I have no reservation in recommending this pack so long as you are looking for a simple straightforward, lightweight, low-profile hydration pack. If you need carrying capacity I hear it can be easily paired with their US 5 or 10L packs.

Best hydration pack for motorcycles
This is the most comfortable hydration pack I have bought. Ergo's fit riding a motorcycle over the other brands.

Great, light hydration pack!
I had low expectations for this product but wow, was I wrong!
I can't even feel that I was wearing it even though I filled it with ice and water. The pack kept the temperature and I had more than enough for a day's worth of riding. The fit is snug and does not get in the way.
There are problems though, as I suspect with most hydration packs, is that I can't have a chin curtain with my helmet and in some instances the straw is in an awkward position.
Also, the pocket for extra stuff is very useful. Although anything in it will be affected by the temperature of the liquid. My phone was very cold since I have ice water in the pack and it affects the contents of the pocket.
Otherwise, a very good hydration pack, well worth the money.

Amazing hydration pack / platform
Everyone has probably used a CamelBak at one point or another. This is exactly like that but with a couple tweaks to make it more motorcycle specific.
The adjustable strap system is great once it's adjusted. Adjusting it is straight forward, but can be a slight pain because you need to put your gear on, put the pack on, drop into a crouch, take it all off, and adjust again. Remember to adjust it when the pack is full of water. It expands and can be a little tight if it's adjusted when empty.
Pack capacity for water is huge. It matches CamelBak's 100oz highest capacity pack with comparable pricing. Fill up is easy with the included ziplock-style fold over top. Slide the clip off, dump water into it, fold and slide back over. No leaks in sight yet.
Once you add in the US-5 / US-10 expandable capacity and great harness, the pack will best any CamelBak or similar hydration system.

Jason K:Yes, the bladder from the Hydro 3 is 100% compatible with the R25. The exact location of the hydration bladder depends on which R25 you have. From the Kriega website: "When installing in a pre-May 2013 Kriega R25 motorcycle backpack, the reservoir fits in the outer pocket with the drinking tube being routed out of the top of the zip and over the shoulder. On the current R25, the tube has a dedicated, covered duct in the top center of the main compartment that the tube can be fed through."Jan 25, 2014
Rhett V:The r25 backpack does have a space for the hydration bladder which can be purchased separately. I have this hydro 3 backpack for trail riding and use an r20 for commuting. When I go on a long ride I just swap the bladder into my r20 so I have hydration as well. You could do the same with the r25.Jan 25, 2014
Daniel H:Mostly. I use it in mine throughout the summer. It fits in the back, side-opening pocket just fine. The only issue is the hose could be a few inches longer to work better. It works, but would be a lot better if the hose were longer. It gets better as the bladder empties too.Jan 26, 2014
Eric C:No, it has its own harness. The bladder is very nice, 3 liter, and can be used in the R25. I guess you could strap it on to the outside of the R25 or R30. The quality and design is the best.Jan 25, 2014
