This gadget was made for sumtin else, but it’s perfect for drinkers who party on-the-run!
Rehydration packs (aka Camelbaks aka cycling bags) are supercool to store n dispense cocktails. It’s basically a slim pack u carry on your back that holds a detachable bladder. A straw leads from the bladder to your mouth, appearing right over your shoulder. How easy is dat??
Great for festivals and outdoor parties. Trekking and DJ-ing too.

The holy straw. Its gotta one-way valve dat u just bite n suck
Mine’s a Karrimor, but d bladder is a Camelbak, 3-liter. The packs ensure the drink stays cold. Another version (owned by housemate Henry) is also a Camelbak 3-liter, but the pack and straw have their own insulation. Cool stuff.
The bladder has a large cap, enabling u to load ice. Three-liter is the largest size bladder we could find, and ur able to empty an entire bottle of liquor, then add d mixer n ice. Guaranteed to get u fucked-up!
Its even been loaded with tuak before.
If u wanna see Henry's bladder, here it is. Big bladder, small weener
Insert alcohol here
Have used it excessively at the Sarawak Rainforest World Music Fest. Also when we organized some outdoor gigs on d beach in Langkawi. When ur on decks, u cant go mix a drink – so just get the pack loaded, put it on, and party all nite!
Also useful when trekking upriver in KKB. Dont think i have ever actually used it for water tho. Anyway the water will have an alcohol / mixer taste, so fuggedaboutit. The bladder costs about $150-$200 and the backpack costs about $100+.
Bumped into some dude, Paulie, in Sarawak a few years ago who had a similar set-up. We immediately exchanged cocktails. Haha. We good buddies now. But he’s also M.I.A. now.
Paulie sampling my mix. See how fucked-up i am?
When u gotta Camelbak... even strangers wanna know u ...
... chicks wanna get close to u ...
... your circle of friends will expand ...
... u'll have it on everywhere u go ...
... and ur guaranteed an intoxicated, wild nite! Party on! (Spot me / yourself if u were there)
