So last night, we all scratched our heads at why lululemon would market the Enlite Hydraffinity Vest and then drop the bomb in the fine print that it doesn’t actually come with a hydration bladder. After some further deep diving into the even finer print, I found that it’s engineered to be compatible with a 1.5L hydration bladder. If you’re interested in giving lululemon’s newest invention a go, you may want to rock & roll on over to Amazon and Prime yourself up one of these:
- Osprey Hydraulics LT Reservoir ($21.95 on Amazon)
- CamelBak Crux Reservoir ($29.98 on Amazon)
- Salomon SS16 Soft Reservoir ($37.98 on Amazon)
I have a CamelBak and two Osprey hydration packs, and can’t speak for Solomon. Turns out that the least expensive option is the one that I’d personally choose, the Osprey. I like how the Osprey mouthpiece’s hydraulic design has a bit of a seal on it when you’re not drinking, and have been very happy with the quality of their products in the last few years.
I’m still riding on the fence if it’s worth the $$$ to try this new vest out. If anyone ends up going for it, I’d love to hear about how you dislike or absolutely love the vest once you’re able to take it out for a few miles! 🙂
