Staying hydrated is essential to the success of every mission. When deprived of water, focus begins to fade and, in serious cases, dizziness and confusion can set in. Drinking water after these symptoms have manifested is essential, but permanent damage can occur if too much time has passed. Drinking water continuously throughout a mission is the only way to keep these symptoms from compromising safety and security. So, we’ve put together a selection of our favorite hydration packs and systems for staying hydrated.
