With the Salomon Advanced Skin Lab Hydro 5 Set, Salomon has stripped down and lightened up its game-changing skin pack. If you're looking for a significantly lighter take on Salomon's skin pack or for the most comfortable hydration pack out there, this is it.
The pack is designed to use Salomon Soft Flasks in front pockets (it comes with a pair of 500 mL/17 ounce flasks) as the primary hydration source; however, the pack remains fully compatible with your choice of hydration bladders. The pack still features Salomon 4D trekking-pole-stowing system. The full-featured pack with 5 liters of storage now weighs in at a svelte 9.2 ounces (260 grams).
