juhani.f65 Source Assault 20L vs. Camelbak HAWG multicam 20L+3L hydration cargo pack comparison. Source Assault 20l is a bit smaller as the 20l capacity includes the 3l hydration bladder. Camelbak HAWG has the more modern lasercut molle webbing - but not on the sides like the Source. Source also has straps in the bottom of the pack - Camelbak has attachment points but no straps. The waist straps are removable in the Camelbak. The padding is different. The HAWG has a handy keyclip in the smallest compartment. Weight (1150g-1160g) is practically the same as is the price (approx. 140€ each). The Source Assault is from @varusteleka and the Camelbak HAWG from Military Kit Shop. Both packs have quick release hydration tubes and special finishes/treatments inside the bladders. The bladder openings / filling is quite different, as is the mouthpiece. With the Camelbak you don't need to put your fingers inside the bladder opening when filling the bladder - so it's easier to use and more hygienic. The Camelbak mouthpiece also is easier to use as it has a bitevalve. One needs to twist and pull the Source mouthpiece to drink, and the opposite when you stop drinking (otherwise it will suck air in the tube which is a bit annoying when you try to drink the next time). Time will tell which one is more durable in use - both packs seem to be really well made of relatively high quality materials. Both packs are really comfortable to carry. We are going to use these in airsoftgames, mountainbiking and traveling. #hydration #hydrationpack #sourcehydration #camelbak #comparison #assaultpack #tacticalgear #varusteleka #airsoft #airsoftgear #pewpew #hydrationbladder #geardo #gearaddicts #pirkanmaasoft #airsoftfinland #airsoftworldwide #outdoors #mountainbiking #milsim #strikeball #bbwarz #hiking
