The USMC Pack System Hydration System in Coyote Brown is a genuine US government issue piece. These are made for military contract by manufacturers like Propper and Eagle Industries. The USMC Pack System is designed as a replacement for the standard ILBE pack system and is specifically intended to provide the Marine with a load carriage system that fully integrates with currently fielded body armor systems. Once called FILBE (Family of Improved Load Bearing Equipment), it's now just simply called the Marine Corps Pack System.
The hydration carrier and hydration bladder system together make a complete water carrying package with a 100 oz capacity. The drinking hose has a quick disconnect feature on both ends for easy takedown and cleaning. There is a clip on the hose so you can secure the hose to the front of your pack. Near the bite valve there is a flow on/off switch to prevent leaks while you're not actively using the hydration system.
The full pack system is many parts. These are sold as complete hydration systems, but do NOT include optional accessories or other pieces outside of the hydration carrier and bladder. This means you will receive the hydration carrier, bladder, tube assembly, tube holder, and bite valve assembly with cover. Other accessories like the Grimloc carabiners or pouches are NOT included, but are sold separately on our site.

This is great overall. The carrier itself is the civilian version of the FILBE Hydration carrier but it still seems well made. I had an issue with one of the zippers and they did not have any more in stock to replace it. They offered a full refund or to let me keep it and receive a partial refund. I opted for the partial refund and received it right away. Double Tap has great customer service and really fast shipping.
No issues with process. Selected item, made payment and it arrived quicker than expected. Product is of top quality, "American made" and it is evident. I am also pleased to support a fellow veterans Company.
