Product Review of the North Face Enduro Boa Hydration Pack
When hiking, running, or walking, one of the best things you can do is stay hydrated. There are many options for getting enough water while you’re out running or hiking. Many people opt for a water bottle, many of which come in a variety of different sizes, shapes, and holding capacity. However, the water bottle has its setbacks as well. Water bottles usually don’t hold all the water you’ll need on any given day.
“My wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in a corner of nature.”
Many athletes and professional hikers and backpackers resort to a very different method of carrying and drinking water. In fact, many of them choose to carry hydration packs. North Face Enduro Boa Hydration packs are like backpacks that are smaller and carry water inside of items inside of it. These packs are usually extremely easier to carry around as well and fit over your shoulders like a backpack too.
Being a hiker myself, I know the importance of getting enough water. One time while I was hiking, I noticed my water bottle had been leaking out all over my backpack and the ground. This created an even bigger problem besides a wet backpack and clothing articles. I had no more water for the day and there wasn’t any freshwater nearby either. I ended up hiking to the nearest freshwater source, which took hours and I nearly had dehydration and heat exhaustion. I knew there had to be more reliable water to transport and drink water while hiking and I learned that there was.
One of my favorite brands is North Face. I love North Face because they make high-quality products that range from clothing to camping equipment. One thing I noticed that was featured on the North Face website was the North Face Enduro Boa Hydration Pack. It seemed like a great buy and I knew it would be a great addition to my hiking and walking gear that I normally carry. Although the price of the North Face Enduro Boa was a little steep at $119, it seemed like a great investment. I decided to purchase the hydration pack in black directly from the North Face website.
The North Face Enduro Boa Hydration Pack has a lot of features. It has a compressed 1.5-liter (50 oz.) water reservoir. It has special shoulder straps and a waist strap for easy comfort and transport. It’s also made with smooth mesh that is breathable and doesn’t abrade the skin, even if you’re wearing a tank top. It also has a large exterior pocket for holding other necessary items.
Upon receiving the North Face Enduro Boa Hydration Pack in the mail, I wanted to try it out. I filled it up with cold water, which is extremely easy to do. I adjusted the straps, and away I went hiking. The pack is surprisingly light, even filled with almost two liters of water. Also, the straps and back part are extremely comfortable and don’t cause any abrasion whatsoever. The North Face Enduro Boa Hydration Pack actually holds a lot of water and I went the whole day without drinking all of it, which was nice knowing it carried all that I would need.
Overall, I would rate the North Face Enduro Boa Hydration Pack a 5/5. It’s certainly well worth the price and it actually delivers all that it promises. I would highly recommend this product to avid hikers, runners, and campers who use or drink a lot of water during the day.
