The Aquaflex Hydration Pack is the CambelBak of water sports, specially designed to suit the types of movements made and the conditions that people endure while traversing stretches of the ocean. Designer Jennifer Watling was motivated to dream up this piece of equipment after noticing the insufficient and inefficient procedures for ensuring that Olympic long-distance swimmers are being supplied with enough to drink.

One liter of potable liquid can fit between two hard shell canteens that would be made from thermoformed polypropylene. The bladders can be accessed via a lengthy tubular straw that clips onto the front of the backpack-like straps. The Aquaflex Hydration Pack is compact and stitched with flexible neoprene and nylon materials. It does not limit the movement of the wearer and causes negligible drag.
