I don't believe One Tigris make anything like this, and the products I've seen from other companies that are similar in purpose are flimsy or not in the tactical style, or both. Most usually don't include a hydration bladder, either, and even a small one would make a huge difference.

-WHAT: Highlights & functions
This product would be for carrying a small amount of items on your back with a small hydration pack, as well. It would be a good day-bag for a small day trip instead of having to bring your whole trip pack with you. (Personally, I would also think it's more tailored toward smaller people, like myself, because I can't carry any of the bags One Tigris currently makes and having a smaller bag like this that still provides space for the essentials would be great). I'm thinking a 1 Liter bladder would be ideal, making sure it comes with one but is usable with other bladders bought elsewhere. The molle would allow for users to attach small packs of separate items, and the velcro would allow display of morale patches. A small d-ring or similar thing would allow the hose from the bladder to secure to the straps, and the hose from the bladder would come out one of those small rubber things that open or close when you put something through them? They're usually used for headphones, I believe. But I think it would be a good way to hold the hose, or possibly a hidden slit in the bag itself.

-WHY: Specific use & purposes (important)
I know a lot of the adventures I would normally want a bag on for small things and a hydration bladder, I wouldn't even be able to carry one of the larger packs for long or they wouldn't be allowed due to space constraints. This would help. Things like going out on a boat or in a helicopter where space is limited and weight is a factor that needs to be considered would be perfect for this.

-HOW: How you were inspired (important)
I have a small backpack like this, however, it isn't molle or velcro and it doesn't include a hydration pack. Also, I've only had it for a few days and it split down the back. The material is not great, even though this is supposedly one of the best on the market.

-WHAT: Proposed product name (important)
Lite Tracker Pack (maybe put in MOLLE or hydration pack somewhere in there?)

-WHAT: Brief outline/description of appearance
A small backpack-style bag with a large pocket and a smaller front pocket visible from the outside. Two small side pockets maybe? But those are less important. The inside of the large pocket should have a small compartment in the back for the bladder to sit inside, and then maybe a small other pocket inside the large pocket to store a small wallet or something?

-WHAT: Color options
I'd say this would be popular in black, coyote brown, green, and grey. I personally would love it in a black or grey.

-WHAT: Material
I would assume whatever the backpacks are normally made of is fine. 1000D Nylon, I think? Zippers and whatever the inside of the pouches would be, plus straps for the backpack part, and size adjusters, plus the hydration bladder and molle/velcro on the outside.

-Design draft (optional)
I am absolute garbage at drawing, sorry. Might need a little help here.

-Similar product(s) (optional)



Let me know what you guys think!

Is this due to size? Could a pocket for a 1L or something be made and just say that the bladder is sold separately? I'm thinking specifically to have a smaller version of the packs that are already made by One Tigris that do include a bladder, but significantly smaller. Fitting like 1 liter or 33.8 oz of water?

Looking at one (https://www.amazon.com/ttnight-Hydr...ration+bladder+1+liter&qid=1585601690&sr=8-30); Size: approx. 29 x 17 x 2cm/11.4 x 6.69 x 0.79"

Sorry for making you confused. I mean we can make a backpack for the hydration bladder but we don't provide it ourselves. Thank you for the link. so if we do, the pocket should fit the measurements you provided right?

My idea doesn't necessarily NEED that, like just the compatibility would be fine too, but it would be really nice to buy them together since then we would be sure it fits well and is perfect with the pack. Either way would be great.

I think either way, this product would do very well, even if it didn't actually come with a hydration pack and it just had a compatibility with one.

A suggestion - If I may. Consider routing the hose fir the bladder “under” your arm and then up. This make for easier drinking. Have a look at the running packs from Salomon for inspiration.

We did a H2O tactical backpack for airsoft player recently and it looks similar to the one we discussed here. It has two ruber holes for the hydration hose.

Hey, just wanted to check up on this idea!

With the hiking posts I've seen under the One Tigris hashtags lately, this would be a great time to test this out.
I'm not sure how the back system looks on this one. Maybe we could add the same back structure as the 1TG TRex Assault Pack has with removable padding. Looks like the perfect size for it.
