The HRT HydroMax Pack Zip-On Back panel was designed with the purpose of versatility. The large single pocket design allows users to properly carry hydration along with supplies that can be easy access for team members. With the expandable design the HydroMax Pack can go from a compact profile to large profile capable of holding mission critical supplies like a jacket or helmet. The lower outer pocket can hold your administrative items or additional supplies with the top outer pocket is able to accept any of our maximus line of inserts to configure the pouch for your specific needs.

This is the ultimate solution for swapping loadouts with one core plate carrier and numerous rear Zip-On panels to suit any mission. Secured attachment with YKK zippers and button loops, our Zip-On panels provide several options for carrying extra gear, ammunition, and equipment for your operational needs. Compatible with the RAC Plate Carrier.

Fits hydration bladders up to 1.5L along with the 3L CamelBak Crux Lumbar.

Like all our product this back panel is backed by our lifetime warranty.

    Just received my pack and it is better than I thought. I was able to fit the maximus panel in it with no problem and am able to hold a set of bolt cutters in the back with no problem. I do not yet have a bladder for it but was told by HRT it takes most 1L and 1.5L bladders and the CamelBak Crux Lumbar 3L bladder and plan to get one. Plenty of room on the back 2 pockets for I.D. Patched and morale patches. Overall I am very happy with the quality and design of this pack. Even though it took much longer to get than anticipated it is well worth the wait.

    The gear is awesome! The customer support and 6 month ship time sucks.

    It’s exactly what I expected. And easy to put on and take off if you wanted too.

    Excellent addition to my rig. Secures with straps and zippers so it isn’t going anywhere. Great product, very pleased so far!

    Very thoughtful hydration pack. Id love to see a standalone version to apply to other PCs.

    It’s like a 3 cell micro backpack with a section for hard or soft camelbacks. Excellent. Please start selling hard camel backs for this.

    Well made and easy to attach. However I did get the impression from pics that it came with a water bladder and drinking tube but no big deal. Nice products from HRT.

    It is roomier than I expected but not bulky at all. Honestly I could not be happier with it if I tried. Very sturdy and easy to attach and extremely secure.

    Excellent build quality and a very nice concept using zipper integration with the carrier. Use lightweight armor and this is comfortable enough to wear all day. Also purchased the MOLLE placard for magazines and it was perfect.

    Excellent work here. This hydration pack is great. It has actual space for usage. I have other hydration packs from different companies & this is by far the best.

    High Quality product. Fit the Plate carrier perfectly. Enough room in the zippered pockets for spare batteries, gloves, multitool, bore snake, etc. The main zippered pouch is wide enough for the low profile Source water bladder also. Just the right size overall without being bulky or too large. HRT shipped my order fast also.
    I have already ordered other items.

    I heard of you guys from Iron Infidel and you guys have thought of everything when it comes to gear, the best plate carrier I own and that I’ve used so far. Very mission adaptable I can gear it up heavily or gear it down to be slick and use for exercise. Highly recommend this carrier

    Fits as expected, haven’t gotten much use out of it yet but easily fits my larger medical items that don’t fit in my dangler such as a splint and an 8” abdominal dressing!
