The Best Surfing Hydration Pack

Ever surf a 300 yard long pointbreak or a mid summer swell in Central America and after only a few waves wish you had some way to take a sip of fresh water? The founders’ of DolfinPack have and so the idea for the worlds most versatile hydration pack was born. There was no way to carry water into the lineup with you and a surfer can’t just paddle to shore when surfing an outer reef break 1/2 mile out to sea just because they’re thirsty. The Dolfinpack’s design allows for maximum mobility and comfort while paddling and doesn’t rash your skin. The unique strap design eliminates movement of the reservoir when riding waves. Stay hydrated between sets to extend every session.

Real Customer Reviews

is easy to fill and nice looking

This has saved me during the heat wave we've had in the Northeast - it's light, is easy to fill and nice looking. Great product

These guys are great. Great product would highly recommend

These guys are great. Great product would highly recommend. I've run 2 Spartan races (Super and Beast) with this pack. With it being made from the lightweight material hardly knew it was on. Also was able to get some energy packs stuffed in with no problem.

Light weight

I bought this for my grandson for his birthday. He and his dad go on long hikes so this make things so much easier now that he doesn't have to carry his water bottle! It is very light weight.

Wore this for my first spartan beast and it was so light I sometimes thought I had low water. Filled it once on the 14 mile course and could even fit my Gu packs and nuun tablets inside the pouch!

The DolfinPack Lightweight does as it was advertised. Light and compact, I can see myself running with it on my back. Don't buy this product if you expect to carry big items in the pack with the water bladder filled. I fit a wallet, keys, and squeezed a 100 page 8"x 11" magazine in the pack with a little struggle. All in all, I can see myself using this item for many outdoor adventures with and without a shirt.

Great for Spartans

I bought this for a Spartan race and it worked very well. The velcro fasteners worked well for keeping it high on my back and not bouncing around. The dust cover is key for not getting a muddy mouthpiece to drink from. Plus the holes in the back drain out all the water and mud.

Lightweight, small, and easy to run with!

So I have only used this once, but I really loved my first experience with it! I have had others in the past and like so many elements of this one way better. I use this for longer distance runs or will use in the summer when its too hot to run without water.

I like the material, it feels very water friendly for all the sweat that I get on it ;) It was very lightweight and didn't jiggle around at all! Even the water in the bladder didn't bother me, I couldn't hear it over my tunes playing. I am slightly worried that the velcro will wear out, but I'll cross that bridge if it happens then!

The mouthpiece is very easy to bit down on and there is a on/off switch which is a really nice feature.

The position on the chest may be a little funky for women with larger breasts. While my chest is rather small, I did not have this issue, but due to the placement of the straps, I'm not sure if they would fit well under larger ones or make them uncomfortable?

But overall I like how small and lightweight this is! Perfect for just the right amount of water needed for a 2-3 hour run :)

This pack is great on long runs

This pack is great on long runs. Stays in place, doesn't bounce around and keeps me hydrated. It is great because it allows me to stay ahead of my hydration, in the past I'd just deal with the side effects- which is not a good option

In Lake Tahoe 10/1/16 in this and was extremely satisfied, light weight

Ran the Spartan Beast in Lake Tahoe 10/1/16 in this and was extremely satisfied, light weight, low profile and durable. The Velcro worked well and never came loose, only knock is if you use the dust cap the holder doesn't work, I brought my own Velcro strip to hold it in place while I ran. Overall great buy and will use it in all of the longer Spartan runs and in training. Also since there are no pockets I filled 3/4 full and there was plenty of room to put a Ziploc bag with my energy beans, salt tabs and beef jerky.

Simple, streamlined, perfect solution

If you are looking for a ligthtweight alternative to a Camelbak, this is for you. If you are a petite person (I'm 5' and 100 lbs) frustrated by gear that is too big and therefore chafes and throws you off balance, this is for you. It's easy to put on, easy to wear, and easy to clean. The bite straw is efficient and easily tucks into the elastic loops. You can put a phone in the pack with the bladder if you are in an area with low humidity (due to condensation); just seal the cap well. The only catch-22 is that the super adjustable and sturdy velcro on the straps can snag your shirt if you don't align them perfectly.

Love It!

This is exactly what I was looking for in a hydration pack, something light that doesn't budge when I run. I ran 8 miles with it today and forgot it was on my back. The neoprene forms so well to your back that it almost feels like it is stuck to it. I can't wait to try it in the water.

Great Running/Outdoor Hydration

I needed a water source for long runs in south Florida where hydration is important. I LOVE this. It fits me perfectly and is extremely light in its construction. The neoprene is great. I didn't like the camelback because of the heavy canvas straps and the canvas body - all I could feel was bulky and chafing. It has a small place for the gu if you use that, but no where really to hold your phone - I just tuck it into the strap and it works fine.

Customer service is PHENOMENAL!

I purchased my DolfinPack mainly for Spartan OCRs and for my long runs. I researched several different brands and found this one to be a great fit for my needs. I have had it for about 7 months and I absolutely love how lightweight this product is, the material is breathable (need that in a Florida!) and it does the job. I did have to request a replacement after 6 months when I noticed that the seams started coming apart on one side and the strap began ripping. However, I still give this product 5 stars because the customer service is PHENOMENAL because within 24 hours of putting in my initial request (on a Sunday, no less) my replacement was already on its way to me. One thing I do wish it did have was an exterior pocket for fuel and/or keys so I don't have to put in the main pocket with my hydration pack.

Perfect hydration back pack

This is my original go to OCR hydration pack and typically the one I use for anything over 12-13 miles it small and out of the way so it doesn’t snag up and very durable! It’s also the only piece of gear not stained from the South Carolina Spartan Beast in 2017

Awesome!

On the suggestion of a friend, I ordered this for the Spartan Super. I am small (5'3", 118 lbs.) and many other hydration packs are too bulky, take on too much water (during obstacles), or chafe. This pack is awesome! Extremely low profile with soft straps. It velcros across the front just under the breasts.

Note that there is no zipper pocket for fuel, but in the large pouch which contains the bladder, I put chews, gel, and a protein bar no problem. My Spartan teammate had that in hers plus compression sleeves and gloves.

Highly recommend!
